Sentricon™ IG and AG

sentricon_logo

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.

Product Features

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

How does it work?

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.
