COMPLETE TERMITE CONTROL WITH THE SENTRICON SYSTEM
The only way to keep termites from entering your home and damaging your property is with full-service termite treatment. This is why we only use Sentricon Always Active System
The Primo Pest Termite prevention and elimination program utilizes the Sentricon Always Active System, which is the most advanced termite baiting system on the market today.
The Sentricon System is a termite colony elimination system favored by millions of homeowners across the United States. Odds are, your neighbors already know that Sentricon is a powerful, discreet and environmentally sound termite solution. Just a few grams of the active ingredient (safe for your family and pets) will finish termite infestations at the source–no breaking down like some liquid termiticides. Our trained professionals bait the system, then monitor and respond to suit your property’s needs.
- This system consists of installing Sentricon stations around the perimeter of the structure at approximately 10 foot intervals.
- Each station is instantly baited with Recruit HD termite bait which is an IGR (insect growth regulator) designed for colony elimination (not just colony reduction). The Sentricon Always Active System eliminates the monitoring stage that is used with traditional bait systems, and by other pest control companies.
- If the structure has a termite infestation at the time of the Sentricon System installation, an Above Ground Sentricon station will be installed to target the area of the infestation.
- We also return each year to fully inspect the structure and to maintain the Sentricon System. If activity is found at that time or at any other time during the year, we will re-treat or repair the area at our cost depending upon your annual warranty.
- Primo Pest termite treatment with the Sentricon System is guaranteed for life as long as the monthly renewal fees are paid.

FAQs About Sentricon®
No. Termites find Sentricon® stations through their relentless search and continuous foraging for additional food sources. Once they discover the stations, inside they’ll find the patented and highly desirable lethal food source the termite workers readily feed on and take back to the colony to share with their nestmates. Termites die off but are not able to identify the cause. This leads ultimately to the death of the colony and the queen.
The Sentricon® system starts protecting a home as soon as it is installed. The Sentricon system begins working once termites feed on the bait found within the station. How quickly termites find an in-ground Sentricon station depends on the termite pressure in your area — but if termites are present, they will find the stations. Unlike liquid termiticide treatments, Sentricon eliminates the entire colony. Colony elimination is the most effective way to protect your property. If active termite feeding is visible, your Certified Sentricon Specialist™ can install specialized above-ground stations to initiate immediate feeding. The faster worker termites get to the bait used by the Sentricon system, the faster their colony will be eliminated.
No. The Sentricon® system is a stand-alone technology that is fully effective.
Label directions for Always Active™ technology allow your Certified Sentricon Specialist™ to perform service once per year, though some will come more often. This flexibility allows a service schedule that meets the needs of your property and provides you with maximum convenience. You do not even need to be home when the stations are serviced.
Liquid treatments are antiquated efforts to keep termites away and can be very disruptive to your property and lifestyle. But the Sentricon® system is an entire system based on the science of natural termite behavior. The award-winning, patented technology in Sentricon uses the termites themselves to destroy their entire colony and kill the queen. Learn more about choosing Sentricon as your termite control option.
The Sentricon® system is traditionally installed around a property’s perimeter to create a protective barrier around the structure. If active termite feeding is found indoors, Recruit® AG bait stations can be installed by a Certified Sentricon SpecialistTM. These stations bring the power of the Sentricon system above ground.
Yes. The stations are placed in the ground with only a service cover visible and require a special key to open. In addition, the active ingredient used in the Sentricon® system, noviflumuron, is designed specifically to disrupt the molting process that occurs only in insects and closely related organisms, not people or pets.
The quantity of active ingredient in each bait station is so small that a dog would need to ingest approximately 200 of the bait station inserts — which is simply impossible — before becoming sick.
Yes. The active ingredient in the Sentricon® system is not systemic and will not be taken up by the plants, and the potential for leaching is extremely low.
