Sentricon – Over 15 Years in Australia and still going strong.....
In 1997, Dow AgroSciences launched the Sentricon*Termite Colony Elimination System in Australia, and here we are, over fifteen years on, still going strong with many of the original companies that used it then, still using it today and all agree it is an extremely important and profitable part of their business.
Being the first monitoring and baiting system available here in Australia, Dow AgroSciences really did lead the field with Sentricon and change the way a termite problem was approached and addressed, it was truly a paradigm shift.
Despite other termite monitoring and baiting systems being introduced to the market since, as said, many of its original users are still using it today. They appreciate that Sentricon comes from an R&D based company that supports and backs their products and also has a very strong quality assurance process in place at the point of manufacture. Sentricon also is the ONLY bait available with the active ingredient hexaflumuron, with an active loading of 5 grams per kg. Most other systems use chlorfluazuron which only has an active loading of 1 gram per kg. Sentricon users appreciate the higher active loading which ultimately results in much less quantity of bait required to eliminate the colony, and less bait means less visits and time to elimination.
Over the years, there have been continual improvements to the bait matrix and Dow AgroSciences are continuing to implement improvements to the Sentricon System in the future.
