A Termite Bond can sometimes be intimidating to a buyer. So, here at Advanced Termite and Pest control, we prefer to call them Termite Agreements. In our Agreements, we do lay our the liabilities and responsibilities for our company and customer.
Who needs a termite bond?
On every continent except for Alaska, there are termites. So, realistically almost everyone needs a termite bond. The termite agreement will protect the homeowners from potentially great termite damage. In addition, home insurance almost never covers termite damage. This is because the damage is preventable. There are two options you have for your termite bond, a liquid treatment or baiting station protection. Liquid termite treatment used to be the only way. However, we now know that Sentricon Science has proved that the Sentricon Baiting System is the best termite protection you can get.
Liquid Treatment Vs. Baiting Protection
The termite protection we use on our customers’ properties is the best termite protection available. We use a baiting system rather than a liquid treatment. The Sentricon Baiting Stations are the best baiting stations you can get. We love that it does not require any drilling into foundations. Sentricon Baiting stations are significantly better for the environment than any liquid termite treatment. This is especially important in areas near water, like Charleston. This due to the toxic runoff from the liquid treatments that pollute our oceans, rivers, creeks, and all water sources. Not only that, but it makes the product weaker and less effective on your home. With Sentricon Termite Bond, the bait will not disintegrate or pollute the rain or flood water.
How the sentricon works
Using scientific information about termite behavior, the Sentricon® system ends the food chain needed by the queen and her colony for survival. With the proven power to wipe out future hungry termite generations, Sentricon gives you complete termite protection. This is why we use Sentricon as the product provided and promised in our termite bond. Using scientifically engineered bait to naturally enter their food chain, the queen and her entire colony are eliminated. Science trumps termites. The science behind Sentricon leaves termites helpless because they can’t tell the active ingredient is lethal. In lab tests when given the choice, termites ate nearly 10 times more bait than wood.
How to get a Sentricon Termite Bond
Unfortunately, you can’t just pick up some Sentricon baiting stations up at the hardware store. In order to get a Sentricon Termite Bond, you’ll have to find a Certified Sentricon Specialist in your area. Termites are too big of a threat for hit-or-miss, do-it-yourself termite protection attempts on your biggest investment. Trust the professionals. Certified Sentricon Specialists™ must pass intensive training on the installation and maintenance of complete home protection. Now, twenty years and 4+ million homes later, Sentricon customers’ peace of mind remains uncompromised.
The Process of a Sentricon Termite Bond
STEP ONE: Installation – After a Certified Sentricon Specialist assesses your structure, baiting stations will be installed around the exterior of your home. Utilizing Always Active™ technology, the Recruit® HD bait is immediately available to the termites as food. In-ground stations have a visible service cover only opened by a special key.
STEP TWO: Foraging – Preferring the bait nearly 10 times more than wood, worker termites discover and quickly share their find within the colony. Once ingested, the active ingredient in Sentricon, noviflumuron, prevents termites from maturing through molting.
STEP THREE: Elimination – Unable to molt, termites die. And when the colony dies, the queen isn’t too far behind. Like a captain going down with the ship, despite the resolve to survive, there’s just no hope.
STEP FOUR: Protection – Imagine worry-free, 24/7 protection now and well into the future. All it takes is your original bait stations and ongoing service from a Certified Sentricon Specialist. For what it’s worth, termites prefer you opt out of this offering.
