The Sentrex system will not attract termites into your yard and is positioned to provide a favourable food source for advancing colonies before they reach your home.
The system is designed to wait passively on guard until termite activity approaches. Foraging termites will be intercepted by the underground antennae and redirected to apertures that provide direct access to high cellulose feed blocks within the monitoring chamber. It will take some time for termite numbers to build inside the monitor as they transport food back to their nest location.
The Sentrex does not trap termites inside and it is important that sufficient time is allowed for the feeding cycle to become well established. At the peak of this cycle, the termites inside the monitor will be treated with a toxin that they inadvertently transport back to the next destroying the entire colony.
After treatment, the monitor will be resealed and left for active transmission. This time is important to allow the slow acting toxin to spread through out the colony. The monitor station and antennae will then be cleaned and reset to provide ongoing monitoring of secondary colonies in the area or advancement of future subterranean threats.
Unlike other termite barriers available on the market, the Sentrex is a cheaper and more eco-friendly, sustainable option in the long term.
We are passionate about preserving soil biodiversity and the millions of micro-organisms and insects that live in the soil. To make our contribution we do not use liquid chemicals or foams when treating termites to help preserve life underground in order for a sustainable future.
