Hex Pro Termite Bait Station (Sentricon)
Renamed Sentricon system made by the same manufacturer, Dow AgroSciences, the Hex Pro Termite Bait Station provides an environmentally sensible solution with a minimal amount of termite bait. This bait station also has low impact on human health, low toxicity to birds, fish and plants, and low potential for groundwater contamination when used according to label instructions.
Hex Pro Termite Bait Station (Sentricon) requires no drilling in floors nor trenching around the home. The Hex-Pro Station is a high-quality product from Dow AgroSciences, a recognized leader in termite solutions. You can either start with a professional inspection of the home for signs of termites or do your own inspection with the tips provided: Hex-Pro termite stations are placed in the soil in prime termite-foraging areas around the house. (In areas of known termite activity, auxiliary Hex-Pro termite stations may also be installed and baited immediately.) Hex-Pro termite stations need to be checked every two months regularly for signs of termite activity.
When termites are found in the Hex-Pro termite stations, they should be transferred to a bait cartridge placed in the stations. The bait cartridge contains Shatter termite bait. In cases where baited auxiliary Hex-Pro termite stations are installed immediately, transferring termites is unnecessary. Termites feed on Shatter termite bait, tunnel back to their colony, and send their nestmates back to feed on the bait. Generally, after several weeks, the termite colony declines and eventually is destroyed. After the termites have been controlled, used bait cartridges are replaced with wood monitors. Continue to check for signs of new termite activity every two months.
The bait used in The Hex-Pro Termite System is called ShatterT termite bait. The active ingredient is hexaflumuron, an insect growth regulator (chitin synthesis inhibitors) that stops the termites' vital molting process so they are unable to grow. As a result, they die. Hexaflumuron has demonstrated 10 years of in-field success killing, controlling and eliminating termites.

Hex Pro Termite Bait Station(Sentricon) Uses / Applications:
This is a single (1) in-ground termite baiting station that combines a termite monitoring station (Hex Pro Termite Bait Station) with a termite bait toxicant (Shatter Termite Bait Cartridges) to kill subterranean termites and their colonies. This system is effective against coptotermes, reticulitermes and heterotermes spp. and is intended to form the basis of an ongoing program. Use of this system involves 3 steps - (1) monitoring for the presence or activity of termites in and around the target site, (2) delivery of a slow acting insect growth regulator (IGR) such as Shatter Termite Bait when and where the presence or activity of subterranean termites has been detected, and (3), resumption of monitoring for the presence of termites after control has been achieved.
Install (1) Hex Pro Termite Bait Station every 8-10 feet but not more than 20 feet around the outer perimeter of structures. Most 2000 square foot buildings will require (20) individual Hex Pro Stations. Inspect each station every 30 - 90 days. When termites have been detected in the station, replace the monitoring wood with (1) Shatter Termite Bait cartridge. Re-inspect every 30 days, replace cartridge as it is consumed. Replace wood monitor detectors as needed or as damaged by insects or fungal decay.
