Sentricon® Termite Bait Systems & Sprays
Life After Bugs has a team of Certified Sentricon Specialists™ who use Sentricon products like baits and liquid treatments to exterminate termites in a more ecologically friendlier way. In the past, the standard chemical system was the only choice to guard homes against harmful termites. But even the strongest chemical treatments weren’t that efficient and long-lasting.
Today, after more than a decade of perfecting the correct formula, a new and better solution comes into play. This solution is called the Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System. Sentricon is the best termite bait system and is also a green termite control alternative.
The Sentricon® system gets to the source of the problem — the termite queen. Without her, the colony cannot survive. Colony elimination, versus merely staving off the attack like other termite treatments, is what makes Sentricon the best termite control (whether green or conventional pest control approach.

The Sentricon Process
Looking for termites can seem like an infuriating game of hide and seek if you try to DIY. You need a professional. Termites hardly ever announce they are there although you can spot them with the help of some telltale signs. To avoid this hassle, request a thorough inspection from a professional pest controller before termites invade your house.
The Sentricon system is developed as a termite colony elimination system. For a colony elimination system to be effective, the bait has to affect each termite within the colony. A specific kind of termite—the worker termite—carries out all the foraging of food. Thus, it’s the type that the Sentricon targets.
The worker termites are in charge of feeding their nestmates. They make this happen by ingesting food themselves and then feeding the other members of the colony through the mouth. This exact natural routine of termites is utilized by the system to spread the bait throughout the nest.
You should be aware that the bait can’t work too quickly. If the active component killed the working termites prematurely, they would die before even passing the bait to other colony members.
The active component in the Sentricon bait is called the noviflumuron which is a slow-acting chitin synthesis inhibitor. Noviflumuron is a particular insect growth regulator or IGR. An IGR meddles with the pest’s external development. This specific IGR disrupts the termite’s capacity to molt.
The skeleton of most insects is positioned on the outside of their body. This is called an exoskeleton. To be able to grow bigger, termites must regularly shed this exoskeleton in a process called molting. Noviflumuron disables the termite to molt effectively so it dies along the way. When Noviflumuron is transferred from one termite to another, the afflicted termites die on their next molt.
Soon enough, there will not be enough termites left to care for the colony and nourish the queen. Once the queen dies, the termite colony is exterminated.
