Sentricon Termite Elimination in Covington, LA

From Fischer Environmental Services

CovingtonFew insects can do more damage to a home than termites. Horribly destructive, extremely invasive, and equally difficult to find, a homeowner may not even be aware of a termite infestation until it’s too late. Once caught, immediate action is needed in order to prevent catastrophic structural damage. Most people only think of termites in connection with wood, but the fact is, they’ll eat anything at all that’s cellulose-based.

Help is available. Fischer Environmental is locally owned and operated, and offers Sentricon termite elimination in Covington. The Sentricon System itself has been in use since 1995.

What Is the Sentricon Advantage?

The Sentricon System is the brainchild of Dow AgroSciences, so it has that company’s expertise behind it. The only people permitted to use the Sentricon System are authorized, highly trained operators. Fischer Environmental is one of the companies authorized to provide Sentricon termite elimination in Covington.

Also, the Sentricon System is one of the most “green” termite elimination systems available. Some termite barrier systems rely on the use of virtual oceans of chemical solutions, but the Sentricon System uses mere grams of termite bait, which is placed strategically at several stations.

How Does the Sentricon System Kill Termites?

The Sentricon System kills by giving termites what they love most – cellulose-based food. Termites live in colonies much like ant colonies. Like ants, they have a certain hierarchy, which includes workers. The worker termites have only one function, and that is to find food. They’re very good at locating cellulose-based food, but they have no way of knowing what’s been added to it.

When you hire Fischer Environmental to conduct Sentricon termite elimination in your Covington home, our authorized professional termite control specialist will place bait stations in the ground. The bait used consists of cellulose that has been treated with noviflumuron, which is a substance that prevents a termite from molting. A termite that can’t molt, can’t live. The worker termite eats the treated cellulose, and then goes back to the colony. Then it vomits up the food, and the other termites eat the vomit. You could say that the awful little things become the victims of their own disgusting behavior.
