Your home is your most important investment and the place where you lay your head each night. That’s why you want to protect it against wood-eating pests like termites that could damage the structural integrity of your home. When you begin to shop around for termite treatments, you may be wondering which treatment method provides the most protection for your home - Sentricon® or conventional liquid termite treatment?

Liquid Termite Treatment vs. Sentricon® System

Although liquid termite treatments are the conventional method for eliminating and preventing termites, dozens of university research studies have testified to the effectiveness of Sentricon®. Sentricon® has even been used to protect our country’s most valuable landmarks such as the White House, the Statue of Liberty, and other national treasures. 

Here are some of the major differences between liquid termite treatments and Sentricon®:

Elimination of the Entire Colony

Liquid termite control works by killing the termites it comes in contact with, and while it is effective, it does not kill the entire colony. Sentricon® works by preventing termites from molting - stunting the growth of the colony. Sentricon® also allows them to live long enough to carry the bait back to the rest of the colony, killing them all. 

Long-lasting Protection

​​Liquid termite treatments need frequent reapplication as the termites consume the liquid barrier over time, eroding the protection provided by this treatment. Since Sentricon® works by using one termite to spread the bait back to the colony, it lasts twice as long as less bait is consumed. Not only does Sentricon® kill termite colonies, but it helps monitor for termites. A service technician will periodically check the bait station and inform you of termite activity. 

Eco-friendly Treatments

Liquid termite treatments not only work to prevent termites, but it can also harm beneficial insects like honey bees or earthworms. Sentricon® is designed to only attract termites and is 10x times as attractive to termites as wood. Sentricon® was the first product registered under the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Convenient Installation

While liquid treatments may require building and landscape disruption in order to create a protective barrier, Sentricon® bait stations are strategically placed around the exterior of your home and blend in with your landscaping.

Routine Service

Liquid barrier technicians may come out to check your liquid barrier every couple of years, but our Sentricon® Certified Specialists are required to monitor the system once a year to maintain bait level, ensure the placement remains accurate, and replace or adjust bait as needed. You don’t even have to be home for installation or check-ups!
