 Sentricon II Termite Control

Truly effective control and management of termites requires an in-depth understanding of the termite’s behaviour and social structure, and the ability to utilise those behaviours and social structures against the termites themselves.

Designed for both internal and external use, the Sentricon II Termite Bait contains a highly palatable and flexible cellulose based food substrate impregnated with an active ingredient called Hexaflumuron.

Hexaflumuron, a chitin synthesis inhibitor, inhibits the termites’ ability to produce chitin (skin substance). As worker termites feed on the bait material, they transfer the Hexaflumuron throughout the entire colony via a process known as ‘trophallaxis’. Termites shed their skin (moult) a number of times throughout their lives as they grow or as their skin is damaged. When they next moult, the exposure to Hexaflumuron renders
them unable to produce chitin. Consequently they die, leading to the elimination of the entire colony.

Easy to live with. 
With small Sentricon stations placed discreetly around the home, the Sentricon system is less of an aggravation than traditional liquid chemical treatments:

  • No drilling in floors and foundations
  • No digging or trenching
  • No chemical solution injected in the ground under and around a home
  • No tank trucks of chemical solution
  • No scheduling hassles

Environmentally responsible.
The Sentricon system was developed with a green mentality. In contrast to liquid chemical treatments, which use hundreds of gallons of chemical solution, the Sentricon system uses only a few grams of active ingredient when and where needed to wipe out the colony. Sentricon AG can be placed where active termites are found and when colony elimination is achieved, they are removed. Likewise, Sentricon IG Termite Bait is only there when you need it and then Sentricon IG stations and your professional pest manager provide ongoing monitoring for new termite attacks.
