Winner of the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award
In 2000, the Sentricon System became the first termite treatment product to receive the highly respected Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, a top environmental honor from the U.S. government presented by the Environmental Protection Agency. This prestigious award recognized technical innovation incorporating "green" chemistry principles into chemical design, manufacture and use.

1. Sentricon System installed

Sentricon System stations containing monitoring devices are installed in the ground, flush with the soil surface, around your home.

2. Termites feeding on bait in stations

Once termites begin to feed on the monitoring device, they are collected and transferred into a bait that is toxic to termites. After feeding on the bait, termites tunnel out and “recruit” their nest mates in the colony to also feed on the bait.

3. Bait begins to kill colony

As the bait goes to work, the termites begin to die off.

4. Colony is eliminated

Eventually the colony is eliminated.

5. Components of the Sentricon System

Components of the Sentricon System: The Sentricon System is comprised of several components. Together, these materials provide pest control professionals a new tool for eliminating subterranean termite colonies.

6. Pest control professional monitoring

Authorized pest control professionals regularly monitor Sentricon System stations for termite activity before and after the colony is eliminated.

7. Inspection of Sentricon Station

Pest control professional inspecting Sentricon System stations for termite activity.

8. Termite damage

Termite Damage: Foundations of homes are popular dining spots for subterranean termites. This year, homeowners alone will face more than $2 billion in termite-related damage and repairs costs.

9. Subterranean termite swarmers

Subterranean termite swarmers or “alates fly out of the original colonies to initiate new ones. A single colony can produce thousands of swarmers. It takes only one successful pair of swarmers to begin a new colony.

10. Termites vs. ants

Termite vs. Ant: While similar at a glance, subterranean termite swarmers (left) differ from ant swarmers (right) in that they are ½ inch long, have thick waists and are yellowish-brown in color.
