Sentricon Termite Elimination System Inground Station (IG) and AlwaysActive Bait (Rod) to destroy termite colony.
The active ingredient in Sentricon IG Termiticide Rods is hexaflumuron, which is a chitin synthesis inhibitor, that is, it interferes with the ability to produce chitin. Chitin is a major component in termite exoskeleton. As such, hexaflumuron prevents the termites from completing their molting process. Termites die if they can’t complete the molt process.
Transmission to other colony members is very efficient via trophallaxis, so hexaflumuron is distributed throughout the colony, resulting in colony elimination.
Regardless how much hexaflumuron is consumed, toxicity isn’t evident until the termite molts. As termites don’t die in or near the Sentricon IG Termiticide Rod, the Sentricon IG Termiticide Rod isn’t repellent to unaffected termites and death is not associated with the Sentricon IG Termiticide Rod.
