Better Home Protection With The Sentricon System

INDIANAPOLIS, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Must green involve compromise?

Not always. It’s possible for green products to actually equal or outperform
less earth-friendly options. One example is the Sentricon® System, which
provides welcome relief to homeowners in every state where hungry termites view
homes as food. Yes, the Sentricon System is a green product that really works.
The proof is in the 60-plus scientific studies and the 2 million structures it
has protected, including the White House and the Statue of Liberty.

Developed through extensive research to take advantage of termite behavior,
Sentricon targets and eliminates the termite colony. Termite workers feed on the
bait in the stations and then share it with the rest of the colony, eventually
eliminating the entire colony, including the termite queen, who can produce
millions of eggs during her lifetime.

While providing powerful home protection, the Sentricon System also helps meet
the environmental considerations of homeowners. The Sentricon System is the only
pest control product to earn the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award,
an award presented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Unlike
alternate methods of termite control that require digging a trench around a home
and pumping hundreds of gallons of liquid chemical termiticide into the soil,
the Sentricon® System uses only a small amount of active ingredient enclosed in
in-ground bait stations spaced to form a protective barrier around the home. And
the bait that makes Sentricon so effective was the first product registered by
the EPA as a Reduced Risk Pesticide.

Termites are a serious problem, costing homeowners an estimated $5 billion per
year.1 So it’s nice to know the Sentricon System proves it’s possible to be both
earth-friendly and highly effective.
