Termites have earned their reputation as one of the world’s most destructive pests. So much so, in fact, that modern building plans include anti-termite technology. The vast majority of termites belong to the worker caste. Worker termites spend 24 hours a day working. If that sounds impressive, consider that most of the work they do involves eating. The worker termites are responsible for feeding the entire termite colony which includes a queen, the soldier caste, and the reproductive cast. One of the surest signs of a serious termite infestation is flying termites. Reproductive termites have wings, so when you see them, you know that you have an active colony on your property. Below, we’ll discuss termite infestations and Amco Ranger assists homeowners and commercial landlords in protecting their investments.
Amco Ranger offers ongoing protection for those who have serious termite problems. That means that we install the baits into the soil surrounding your home and refill them once they are used up. This plan can be purchased on a yearly basis and Amco Ranger will monitor the bait stations so that we know when they have to be replaced.
Advantages Of The Sentricon System
Unlike other forms of termite control, including spray pesticides, Sentricon poses a minimal disruption to your daily life. Since the baits are installed in the soil surrounding your home, you won’t have to worry about your children or pets getting into any dangerous pesticide. Likewise, Sentricon bait stations don’t require pest control specialists to install the baits inside your home. This means no drilling through floorboards or other potentially costly techniques. The baits are self-contained, meaning that they won’t cause problems for the topsoil on your property. Best of all, you won’t have to rearrange your schedule to accommodate your next termite treatment.
Some companies will try to sell you on “comparable” systems to Sentricon. However, the technology used by Sentricon has been proven by research conducted across 30 universities. There are over 70 scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals addressing the value of the Sentricon system over “comparable” technologies. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends Sentricon over other more invasive and potentially dangerous technologies. The most knowledgeable environmentalists and agriculturists all recommend Sentricon above other termite treatments.
Is Sentricon Environmentally Friendly?
Because the baits are installed in the soil and are self-contained as opposed to chemical soil treatments, they do not pollute nearby groundwater or pose a threat to the environment. Many termite treatments are restricted from use based on their proximity to nearby wells. But not Sentricon. Sentricon is registered under the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative and was awarded the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award in 2000. Sentricon remains the only termite pesticide to have ever won the award. It is the safest and most effective treatment for residential areas.
