Sentricon Termite Elimination in Hammond, LA

From Fischer Environmental Services

HammondYou’ve probably seen Saturday morning cartoons where a single termite, complete with power-saw sound effects, demolishes an entire building in a matter of a few seconds. That’s pretty funny, but fortunately not accurate. Just the same, real-life termites aren’t anything to laugh at. They’re just about the most destructive pest that could ever invade your home. Of course, they love wood, but they don’t stop there – they’ll eat your clothes, your carpets, just about anything that’s made from cellulose.

You’ll be reassured to know that Fischer Environmental can provide you with Sentricon termite elimination in Hammond, Louisiana. Sentricon is a system that has worked since 1995 to fight termite infestations.

Why Should I Consider the Sentricon System?

With the Sentricon System, you have the capability and expertise of Dow AgroSciences behind you. Dow developed the Sentricon System, which has been in use for almost 20 years, and only permits authorized operators backed by Dow training to employ it. Fischer Environmental is authorized to use Sentricon termite elimination in your Hammond home.

The other advantage to the Sentricon System is that it is environmentally friendly. It doesn’t rely on gallons of chemical soup, just a bit of an active ingredient that is not harmful to humans in small quantities, but is very, very unhealthy for termites.

What Is the Science behind the Sentricon System?

An operator who is authorized to carry out Sentricon termite elimination in Hammond will place a special cellulose bait underground at specific baiting stations. The bait has a little extra – noviflumuron, which the termites are unable to detect. Termites that ingest the tainted cellulose are no longer able to molt, and an inability to molt is the kiss of death.

It doesn’t take many termites to deliver the noviflumuron to the entire colony. Termites, like ants, have workers who look for food. When they find it, they alert other workers by leaving a scent at the site. The workers eat the food, and then go back to the colony, where they present their fellow termites with an all-you-can-eat buffet in the form of tainted food that they vomit up. Fortunately for the homeowner, the buffet doesn’t last long because the termites die quickly.
