Sentricon® presents an innovative solution for termite eradication. By strategically situating bait stations around residential or commercial properties, this system effectively targets termite colonies at their source. 

Powered by an active ingredient called noviflumuron, Sentricon® disrupts termite growth cycles, ultimately leading to colony elimination. Notably, its environmentally conscious design ensures minimal impact on non-target organisms. 

With Sentricon®, clients can confidently safeguard their properties against termite threats with a professional, eco-friendly approach to pest management.

Sentricon® Vs Termidor

Sentricon® and Termidor are both popular options for termite control, but they differ in approach:

  • Sentricon®: Utilizes bait stations to attract termites, disrupting colony growth and eventually eliminating the entire colony. It's non-invasive, eco-friendly, and requires ongoing monitoring.
  • Termidor: A liquid termiticide applied around the perimeter of a structure, creating a protective barrier. It works through contact and ingestion, providing immediate and long-lasting protection.
