Sentricon® AlwaysActive™

SentriconAA

Sentricon IG (In-Ground) Termiticide Rods have the benefits of both chemical barriers and bait stations, without any of their drawbacks. No mixing, no trenches, no poison. And colony elimination may be achieved before termites are even detected!

Sentricon AlwaysActive is active from installation, in stations around the perimeter of a structure, providing continuous protection from day one. All day, every day.

Product Features

  • Powerful termiticide within a high density rod, contained within Sentricon Stations around a structure, providing continuous protection against termites from day one.
  • The termiticide is transferred throughout the colony, providing colony elimination, potentially even before termites have been detected.
  • Sentricon IG Termiticide Rods have been demonstrated to be highly palatable, especially when aged and gnarly. Sentricon IG Termiticide Rods have been shown to effective for up to five years in Australian conditions.
  • Quick and easy installation and monitoring will allow technicians more time to grow their business.
  • Sentricon AlwaysActive provides effective, safe and affordable termite control protection against a common risk to home owners.

How does it work?

  • The active ingredient in Sentricon IG Termiticide Rods is hexaflumuron. Hexaflumuron is a chitin synthesis inhibitor, that is, it interferes with the ability to produce chitin. Chitin is a major component in termite exoskeleton. As such, hexaflumuron prevents the termites from completing their moulting process. Termites die if they can’t complete the moult process.
  • Transmission to other colony members is very efficient via trophallaxis, so hexaflumuron is distributed throughout the colony, resulting in colony elimination.
  • Regardless how much hexaflumuron is consumed, toxicity isn’t evident until the termite moults. As termites don’t die in or near the Sentricon IG Termiticide Rod, the Sentricon IG Termiticide Rod isn’t repellent to unaffected termites and death is not associated with the Sentricon IG Termiticide Rod.

Installation and monitoring equipment

Having the right equipment makes all the difference in achieving a fast and effective job, whether to install Sentricon AlwaysActive or during monitoring and/or cleaning the stations.

Sentricon Always Active CodeMark certificate

Sentricon AlwaysActive is now certified by CodeMark for use in pre-construction premises.  CodeMark is a voluntary accreditation scheme for new products that may be used in the building industry.  Produced and maintained by the Australian Building Code Board, the CodeMark list provides assurance to builders and developers that the product certified meets the requirements of the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

CodeMark certificates are approved through internationally recognised accreditation bodies that evaluate a product’s conformance via a performance based approach.  In the case of Sentricon AlwaysActive, a technical evaluator reviewed all of the data provided to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority for product registration, in addition to a list of additional Australian and International studies.  This same evaluator also attended several installations to ensure adherence to the label and technical manual instructions.  At the same time, a separate auditor visited the Sentricon IG Termiticide Rod manufacturing facility in the United States to ensure processes and documentation were aligned.  The collective reports were then reviewed by two separate bodies.  This in-depth assessment is required to provide Australian builders, and the general public, assurance that every material used in construction meets the BCA.
