Controls termites with an odorless less invasive, targeted approach.,
1.It starts with a professional inspection of the home for signs of termites.
2.Hex-Pro termite stations are placed in the soil in prime termite-foraging areas around the house.
(In areas of known termite activity, auxiliary Hex-Pro termite stations may also be installed and baited immediately.)
3.Hex-Pro termite stations are checked regularly for signs of termite activity.
4.When termites are found in the Hex-Pro termite stations, they are transferred to a bait cartridge placed in the stations. The bait cartridge contains Shatter™ termite bait. In cases where baited auxiliary Hex-Pro™ termite stations are installed immediately, transferring termites is unnecessary.
5.Termites feed on Shatter termite bait, tunnel back to their colony, and send their nestmates back to feed on the bait. Generally, after several weeks, the termite colony declines and eventually is destroyed.
6.After the termites have been controlled, used bait cartridges are replaced with wood monitors. The pest management professional continues to check for signs of new termite activity as long as the service agreement continues.
Termite Bait Station every 8-10 feet but not more than 20 feet around the outer perimeter of structures.
Hex Pro Termite Baiting System (Sentricon) Uses / Application: Complete in-ground termite baiting system that combines a termite monitoring station (Hex Pro Termite Bait Station) with a termite bait toxicant (Shatter Termite Bait Cartridges) to kill subterranean termites and their colonies. This system is effective against coptotermes, reticulitermes and heterotermes spp. and is intended to form the basis of an ongoing program. Use of this system involves 3 steps - (1) monitoring for the presence or activity of termites in and around the target site, (2) delivery of a slow acting insect growth regulator (IGR) such as Shatter Termite Bait when and where the presence or activity of subterranean termites has been detected, and (3), resumption of monitoring for the presence of termites after control has been achieved. Install (1) Hex Pro Termite Bait Station every 8-10 feet but not more than 20 feet around the outer perimeter of structures. Inspect every 30 - 90 days. When termites have been detected in the station, replace the monitoring wood with (1) Shatter Termite Bait cartridge. Re-inspect every 30 days, replace cartridge as it is consumed. Replace wood monitor detectors as needed or as damaged by insects or fungal decay.
