Click for more on the Sentricon System..Termites have been going after your home for years. Now the Sentricon System lets you go after their home - the colony. Colony elimination is a completely new way to deal with termites. And Sentricon can achieve it.

The Sentricon Colony Elimination System is the best approach for protecting structures from subterranean termites because it eliminates the colony, while being non-disruptive to property owners. The Sentricon Colony Elimination System is proven, long-term protection against termite damage.


The Sentricon Colony Elimination System takes advantage of natural termite behavior. Worker termites constantly forage far and wide, looking for wood to feed the colony. When they find food, like the monitoring device in a Sentricon station, they leave special scent trails to summon their nestmates to the food source.

Once your Gressette Pest Management technician discovers termites feeding in the station, the monitoring device is replaced with a Baitube™* device containing Recruit II™* termite bait. In doing so, the technician initiates the exclusive Self-Recruitment™* procedure that takes advantage of the natural behavior of termites to spread the bait throughout the colony. The bait contains a substance that stops the molting process so termites can't grow. In time, all the termites in the colony will be affected by the bait and die.


Placing Sentricon station

Step 1:
Sentricon stations with electronic monitoring devices will be placed in the soil around your home.

Stations will be checked regularly

Step 2:
The stations will be checked regularly and scanned electronically for termite activity using the Interrogator device.

Termites transferred to Baitubes™

Step 3:
When termites are found in a Sentricon station, they will be transferred to a Baitube device containing Recruit™ termite bait. The baitube device will then be placed in that station.

Termites will feed on Recruit II

Step 4:
The captured termites will feed on Recruit termite bait, tunnel out and send other colony nestmates back to feed on the bait. As they do, the colony starts to decline and will eventually be eliminated.

New monitoring device will be replaced

Step 5:
After a colony has been eliminated, the bait will be replaced with new electronic monitoring devices. We will continue to inspect these regularly to detect any new colony that might invade your property.
