How Can I Prevent Subterranean Termites?
Did you know that each year termites can cause approximately $30 billion worth of damage to crops and man-made structures in the United States? Well, did you know that termites could be invading your home as you read this article? A termite may only need about a 1.5mm gap to work its way into the foundation of your home. Once the termites are inside your home, they will feed on your floors, walls, ceilings, frames, etc. This is why it is so important to prevent subterranean termites before a problem starts.
Sentricon Always Active has provided a revolutionary, more efficient way to prevent subterranean termites. Sentricon Always active is installed in the ground around your home and attracts the termites before they can discover any 1.5mm gap in your home. This technology contains a highly desirable termiticide rod that termites can’t help but eat. These pest control stations will be placed every 9- 10 feet around your home and in areas common to termite attacks. Termites build tunnels to find food sources. When termites add additional pathways off of the main tunnel, they have a more promising chance of finding food. Therefore, while expanding their tunnels, they will naturally find Sentricon Always Active and crawl through the 2 mm hole into the Sentricon Station. These stations can easily be moved or replaced at any time as well.
How Does Sentrion Always Active Work?
Termites love Sentricon because their biological nature attracts them to the food source within the stations. Research has showed that termites prefer Sentricon over wood. The worker termites, which are responsible for finding food for the colony will ingest the ingredients in the termiticide rod and then regurgitate this food source to share with all of the other termites. The special ingredients are undetectable by termites, leading them to bring it back to their colony until they are all gone. Furthermore, once the workers die, they can’t provide food for their colony the rest of the colony will die too.
Why Should I Choose Sentricon Always Active for Subterranean Termites?
Overall, Sentricon Always Active is an extremely promising way to gain control of Eastern Subterranean and Formosan Termites that might want to feed on your home. While Sentricon is harsh on the termites, it is very safe for people or other animals that may come in contact with the stations. Not to mention, there is no impact on ground water, wildlife, or the rest of the environment. This termite management is also a winner of a presidential green chemistry award.
