WHAT IS THE SENTRICON® SYSTEM DIFFERENCE?
THE SENTRICON® SYSTEM: CONVENIENCE
The Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System takes care of your termite worries without disrupting your life.

SENTRICON – SUCCESS THROUGH SCIENCE

The first and most successful termite baiting system is a unique cellulose matrix inserted into strategically placed, in-ground bait stations. Termites feed on the Recruit® termite bait, share it, and the colony dies. It’s that simple.

The Sentricon System’s effectiveness at eliminating termite colonies is supported through independent research at 30 universities, 70 published scientific articles, and by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

THE OTHERS – HOW THEY COMPARE:

Dixie Exterminators, Inc. will do a thorough inspection of your property for signs of termites, and place Sentricon bait stations in the soil at precise intervals around your property.

Liquid Chemical Treatments

Even with the newest non-repellant termiticides, a trench is dug around the foundation of the home and holes are drilled every 12 inches through the floor or foundation. Hundreds of gallons of diluted chemical solution are injected into the soil around and under the structure. But liquid chemicals tend to break down over time, leaving untreated gaps termites can tunnel through. Special precautions must be taken on properties with wells or cisterns, sub-floor heating ducts or other vulnerable features.

Treated Wood

Applied during construction, or when trying to save infested structures, borates and pressure treatments penetrate the surface of bare wood to protect it against termites. Borates are toxic to the termites that consume it, but if they don’t eat treated lumber, termites can still construct mud tubes on the surface.

Do-It-Yourself Tools

There are a few termite treatments available in retail stores, including foams, liquids, powders and baits. However, most homeowners have limited knowledge, time, training, and tools. Many universities strongly encourage consulting a professional for termite treatment. The labels on many do-it-yourself products caution that they are not recommended as sole protection from termites.

NOW THAT YOU KNOW YOUR OPTIONS, CONSIDER THEM CAREFULLY. WE THINK YOU’LL FIND THERE’S GOOD REASON WHY THE SENTRICON® SYSTEM IS THE NUMBER 1 BRAND IN TERMITE PROTECTION1.
