Termite Baits


INTRODUCING THE LATEST EVOLUTION IN TERMITE PROTECTION…

SENTRICON ALWAYS ACTIVE WITH RECRUIT HD!

For years, we here at Dixie have prided ourselves with providing the very best in Termite Protection to our customers. That tradition continues today with the introduction of Sentricon Always Active! With Always Active technology, every station has new Recruit HD bait placed in it from the beginning, so termites can begin feeding on it as soon as they find a station. This starts the colony elimination process sooner and keeps your protection continuous.

The Sentricon system was developed with respect to the environment. In contrast to traditional liquid treatments, which use hundreds of gallons of chemical solution, the Sentricon System uses only a few grams of active ingredient. It requires no drilling in floors and foundations, no trenching and no scheduling hassles. Stations are locked to deter access by pets and children.

In the competitive world of termite control, only the best are selected to install and service the Sentricon System, and we are proud to be one. As an Authorized Operator of the Sentricon System, our Service Professionals have extensive training and are committed to protecting your home and providing you with peace of mind.

THE NEXT TIME YOU SEE THE GREEN CAP OF A SENTRICON® BAIT STATION IN YOUR YARD UNDER A SHRUB OR NEXT TO THE DECK, YOU CAN BE CONFIDENT THAT YOUR TERMITE CONCERNS ARE A THING OF THE PAST. PUT THE SENTRICON SYSTEM ON GUARD TO PROTECT YOUR HOME


IT’S A BIG PROBLEM. YOU NEED HELP.

THE SENTRICON® SYSTEM: CONTINUOUS SECURITY

You can think of the Sentricon® System as your home and family’s continuous safeguard against the threat of termite invasion. A proven solution.

SENTRICON DOES ALL THE WORK. SO YOU CAN RELAX.

The Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System is designed to give you peace of mind and begins protecting your home as soon as it’s installed. Your only job is to put termites out of your mind.

Inspection and Installation

Your Authorized Operator will do a thorough inspection of your property for signs of termites, and place Sentricon stations in the soil at precise intervals around your property.

Worker termites ingest the bait and share it with their colony until the colony is eliminated. Termites are highly sensitive to rapid ecosystem changes, but this ingenious system is appetizing to the termites and works slowly enough to spread throughout the colony without alerting them that anything has changed.

Monitoring and Baiting

Recruit® IV termite bait is delivered by Dixie Exterminators, Inc. once every three months to the stations that show signs of termites.


HOW IS SENTRICON ON THE ENVIRONMENT?

The Sentricon® System an award-winning termite colony elimination system that protects your home as well as the environment.

IT’S NO COINCIDENCE THAT SENTRICON STATIONS ARE GREEN

The Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System was introduced in 1995, revolutionizing termite protection. Rather than saturating the soil with a liquid chemical solution, Sentricon uses Recruit® termite bait strategically, relying on termite biological and behavioral science for discrete, complete colony destruction.

THE SENTRICON ENVIRONMENTAL PROFILE:

Grams

The Sentricon® System uses only a few grams of active ingredient in each station and is designed to prevent environmental exposure. Sentricon bait stations can be removed if desired.

Strategically Targeted for Termites

The active ingredient in Recruit® termite bait is targeted specifically at inhibiting the exoskeletal molting process in the termite’s life-cycle. There is no similar process in mammals. The Recruit® bait is strategically placed in Sentricon stations and uses the foraging worker termites as unwitting transporters of the active ingredient.

EPA Accepted

The active ingredient in the Sentricon System was the first product of any kind to be registered by the EPA under the strict requirements of the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative. This distinction is based on its low impact on human health, low toxicity to non-targeted organisms (birds, fish and plants) and low potential for groundwater contamination.

Award-Winning

Sentricon is the only termite control product ever to earn the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, a top federal environmental honor. The award recognizes technical innovation incorporating environmentally responsible1 chemistry into its design, manufacture and use.

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 PROTECTION.


Termites are on a mission. It’s called Operation Munch.

Eat. It’s all termites want to do. In the ecosystem, their role is to break down plant and wood material — good news in the forest, bad news in the neighborhood. Their trick is to tunnel from their underground colony through the soil to any source of cellulose (your home, for instance), which they devour from the inside out. You don’t even notice their work until structural timbers are severely damaged. And, as if your house weren’t enough, termites also consume fences, paper, furniture, cloth and books.

How much havoc does this round-the-clock eating machine wreak? Every year in the United States:

More than 5 million homes have some type of termite problem
About $5 billion in termite-related property damage occurs
Termite damage is more common than damage caused by storms, fires and earthquakes
The costs of termite damage are rarely covered by homeowner’s insurance

That’s the termites’ mission. Now, what’s yours? One thing’s for sure, you can’t ignore termites and the damage they cause. You’ve got to move quickly, but move smart.

The Sentricon System, the first and most successful termite baiting system, has been proven to eliminate termite colonies by independent research at 30 universities, reported in 45 published scientific articles, and by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It uses only a few grams of active ingredient in a cellulose matrix that termites love to eat. This Recruit™ termite bait is placed strategically in in-ground Sentricon stations in areas where termites are or may be active. Termites feed on the Recruit termite bait and share it with nestmates until the colony dies. The Sentricon System requires no drilling in floors or foundations, no digging or trenching and no gallons of chemical solution injected in the soil.

There are other options being marketed to homeowners. Here’s how each one compares to the Sentricon System:

Other Baits

Other baits also use in-ground stations filled with a mix of cellulose and an ingredient toxic to termites. With some, the ingredient makes termites get sick or die near the bait station, so other termites avoid the bait and the colony dodges destruction. Many baits are not effective enough to do the job on their own and require a companion liquid chemical treatment.

Liquid Chemical Treatments

Liquid chemical treatments saturate the soil to try to create a treated zone around the house. In a conventional treatment, even with the newest nonrepellent termiticides, a trench is dug around the foundation of the home and holes are drilled every 12 inches through the floor or foundation. Then, hundreds of gallons of diluted chemical solution are injected into the soil around and under the structure. Unfortunately, liquid chemical treatments tend to break down over time, and termites often find untreated gaps to tunnel through. Special precautions must be taken when using a liquid chemical treatment on properties with wells or cisterns, subslab heating ducts or other vulnerable features.

Treated Wood

Borates and pressure treatments penetrate the surface of bare wood to protect it against termites. However, over time, even treated wood is subject to termite attack. Plus, termites can build mud tubes over treated wood. A wood treatment is usually done during construction when wood is exposed, but it is sometimes used to treat infested wood.

Biological Control Agents

Researchers are exploring the possibility of using parasitic worms and termiticidal fungus to infect and kill termites and other soil insects. So far, success has been limited in the real world. The colony can stop the spread of the parasites or disease by recognizing and quarantining infected termites.

Do-It-Yourself Tools

There are a few termite treatments available in do-it-yourself stores, including foams, liquids, powders and baits. However, most homeowners don’t have the knowledge, time, training or tools to outsmart termites on a mission. Plus, they have too much at stake. Many universities strongly encourage you to consult a professional for termite treatment. Even the labels on the do-it-yourself products caution that they’re not recommended for 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 No. 1 brand in termite protection.
