Sentricon Termite System

Termites are often called “the silent destroyers” because of their ability to go relatively unnoticed into your home or business until major damage is done to the structure.

Termite Pest Control - Indianapolis, Indiana Area

There are two types of termites most commonly found in the United States: subterranean termites and drywood termites. Subterranean termites can be identified by “swarmers,” or winged termites that congregate around a specific area. Unlike subterranean termites, drywood termites do not need soil moisture to survive and dwell inside wood – making them difficult to recognize and more likely to do a large amount of damage. Protect your home or business against both termite species by allowing AAA Exterminating to craft a termite pest control plan that will expel every trace of termite activity from your home. Our professional termite exterminators want you to enjoy a termite free home or business.

The Active Ingredient, Noviflumuron Subterranean termites are social insects, so all individuals within the colony depend on one another for survival. The Sentricon System targets the entire termite colony, including the termite queen, who can produce more than a million termites over her lifespan. This system uses a unique active ingredient called Noviflumuron. Noviflumuron affects termites by stopping the molting process, required by termites to grow. It is spread throughout the colony’s foraging population before termites can notice its effects on their nest mates. The Sentricon System will be the only protection from termites that your home will ever need, with the proven power to wipe out future house-hungry termite generations.

Proven Success - Extensive field tests have been completed on infested structures by the United States Department of Agriculture - Forest Service (USDA-FS) and by researchers at major universities. More than 30 scientific papers have been published on the Sentricon System and its components. The conclusion of this research is that the Sentricon System has successfully eliminated colonies of all economically important subterranean termite species in the continental United States and Hawaii in a wide variety of environments. With the Sentricon System, you can stop the destruction, or prevent it from ever happening.

Why the Sentricon System?

Why the Sentricon System?

Property Protection Through Colony Elimination
One of the main differences between the Sentricon ®Termite Colony Elimination System and a basic termite control is that basic termite control uses a chemical termiticide barrier. Sentricon eliminates the colony, which removes the threat of structural damage.The Sentricon System is the only termite bait that has published, peer-reviewed research documenting colony elimination.Dow AgroSciences, the manufacturer of the Sentricon System, in cooperation with researchers from the United States Department of Agriculture-Forest Service (USDA-FS) and 15 state universities, conducted an unprecedented number of termite research field trials nationwide.The Sentricon System has been documented to eliminate all economically important subterranean termite species utilizing the biology and behavior of termites to affect their demise.The Sentricon System has also eliminated subterranean termite colonies in homes like yours nationwide and is protecting hundreds of thousands of residential and commercial properties.

Non-intrusive compared to basic liquid termiticide treatments, the Sentricon System is non-intrusive. With the Sentricon System, there is no drilling in floors or foundations required, and it results in fewer disturbances to landscaping than the basic liquid termiticide treatments.

Your pest management professional can install and monitor the Sentricon System without ever entering your home.

Environmentally Responsible - The Sentricon System uses just a few grams of active ingredient to eliminate the colony.  With basic liquid treatments however, hundreds of gallons of diluted chemical may be necessary to treat around and underneath a home.Stations are inconspicuous and secured with a locking cap designed to prevent entry by children or pets.

The Sentricon System was the first product registered under the Environmental Protection Agency's Reduced Risk Initiative, and is the first termite treatment that has earned the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award.

What makes Sentricon Environmentally Responsible?

Dow AgroSciences, the manufacturers of the Sentricon System, received one of the U.S. government's top environmental honors, the 2000 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded honors to the Sentricon ®Termite Colony Elimination System, the technology that eliminates termite colonies using a very small amount of termite bait only when and where termites are present.
This prestigious award, presented by the EPA on behalf of the president, recognizes technical innovation that incorporates the principles of "green" chemistry into chemical design, manufacture, and use. The Sentricon System was the first and is the only termite control product to receive the highly-respected award.

And here's another first: The Sentricon System was the first product approved under the EPA's Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative. Today, more than 750,000 structures across the country are protected using this revolutionary technology. It is currently protecting historical structures such as the Statue of Liberty, the White House, and Independence Hall!

Use of this technology is expanding globally, protecting structures in Australia, France, Spain, and Japan. The Sentricon System has successfully eliminated termites from a 10-acre area of Bourges, France, and is protecting the Senate building in Rome, as well as avenues of trees lining the streets of Paris.

"The impact of the Sentricon System on the termite control industry has been significant," says Reid Sprenkel, general manager, Professional Pest Management at Dow AgroSciences LLC. "Receiving the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award further illustrates Dow AgroSciences' commitment to the development of innovative and environmentally responsible pest management.
