Fahey Termite Control With Sentricon

Sentricon HD with Always Active Protection

Sentricon by Dow AgroSciences is the leader in Florida for subterranean termite protection and environmental stewardship.  It has been recognized as a Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award Winner! This prestigious award, given annually by the federal government, recognizes technical innovation that incorporates the principle of green chemistry into design, manufacture and use. The Sentricon system has been on the market for more than 15 years and is considered one of the most significant advancements the pest control industry has seen in 50 years.

The Sentricon System is the only system that has documented research data supporting entire termite colony elimination.  Many products are labeled for suppression or reduction of termite population but the Sentricon System offers the best termite protection because it successfully eliminates entire termite colonies. It has shown proven termite colony elimination in the United States and several other countries.

How Does Sentricon HD with Always Active Protection work?

The Sentricon system consists of stations that are installed by Fahey Pest & Lawn Solutions around the perimeter of your home or business.  Each station contains Recruit HD termite bait with noviflumuron that stays in the station all of the time so it is always available to termites.

The active ingredient noviflumuron, is an insect growth regulator that stops the molting process termite require for growth, a process not present in mammals.  Termites share this active ingredient with each other as they naturally feed and care for the colony.

The termites mark the bait with pheromones that will lead other termites to the bait tube device.  This process provides enhanced acceptance of the bait by the termites, ensuring that they feed on it and spread it to nestmates.  Their trail of pheromones helps improve the feeding and distribution of the bait within a termite colony.  Termites cannot detect noviflumuron, so there is no feeding deterrence.  Termites are not aware of the source of the toxicant, so they continue to feed until the entire colony is eliminated.

Sentricon HD with Always Active Protection is SAFE!

The premier bait used in the Sentricon System was the first product registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the strict requirements of the reduced risk pesticide initiative.  This distinction was based on its low impact on human health, low toxicity to nontarget organisms (birds, fish, and plants) and low potential for groundwater contamination when compared with other commercially available termite treatments.

The Sentricon System is less disruptive than liquid termiticide treatments.  It does not involve drilling in floors or foundations.  It is also easy on landscaping, with less digging than a liquid termite treatment.
