Termites have a reputation for being one of the most destructive pests that you can have in your home. They’ve earned that reputation. Worker termites will spend 24 hours a day chewing through any wood that they can find. This is because reproductive termites and soldier termites can’t eat without them. The worker termites are responsible for feeding the entire colony and without their hard work, the colony would die.
If you have an active infestation, you need to ensure that it’s dealt with sooner rather than later. Amco Ranger applies a cutting edge termite treatment that ensures that your termite problem is dealt with and does not disrupt your schedule. In this article, we’ll discuss how we approach the termite problem.
Eliminating the Entire Termite Colony
Areas where there are high concentrations of above-ground termites require specialized bait stations to successfully eliminate the problem. Worker termites will eat the bait and then bring it back to the colony where it will not only kill them, but it will also kill the reproductive termites and the soldier termites as well as their queen.
The technology in these bait stations is known as the Sentricon Colony Elimination System®, and it is only available to select Certified Sentricon Specialists like Amco Ranger. In fact, Amco Ranger was the first in the St. Charles area to have this technology so no one has more experience using it than us. If you purchase an ongoing plan with us, we will continue to maintain the bait stations to ensure ongoing protection for your most important asset.

What Makes Sentricon® Better?
Companies may claim that they carry treatments that are “comparable” to Sentricon® but who knows exactly what they mean by that. The Sentricon® system has been proven by research conducted by 30 universities. There are 70 scholarly articles addressing how Sentricon® works and why it’s superior to other forms of termite control in St. Charles. Even the U.S. Department of Agriculture has sung the praises of Sentricon®. In other words, many very knowledgeable people recommend Sentricon® above other termite treatments.
But What about the Environment?
One of the best qualities of the Sentricon® system is that it doesn’t pollute nearby groundwater or pose a serious hazard to the environment. Additionally, some other termite treatments have restrictions on how closely they can be used to wells or cisterns. Sentricon® is registered under the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative—a program sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency. In fact, Sentricon was awarded the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award in 2000. It is the only termite control system ever to have won it. Sentricon® uses less pesticide to accomplish its job making it one of the safest options on the market.
