Sentricon Always Active
Sentricon Termite Bait System provides property owners with the ultimate solution where traditional chemical soil barriers are not suitable.
Sentricon Always Active is installed within the grounds of a property. The in-ground stations are filled with termiticide rods, ready for foraging termites.
Sentricon® Always Active™ is active from day one. It can eliminate a termite colony before you even know it’s there.
As Termites feed on the Sentricon baits, the Sentricon eliminates the entire termite colony. Termites find Sentricon Bait stations through their natural foraging behaviour; stations are placed around the property to intercept the Termites. They then share the Sentricon with other termites in their colony as part of their natural feeding process.

Termites are social insects, and their colonies consist of several caste types.
Being able to recognize the different caste types can be helpful. The caste
types that you may encounter and their respective roles within the colony
• Kings and queens initiate the colony and continue producing hundreds to
thousands of fertilised eggs per day.
• Soldiers are responsible for protecting the colony. Their defence
mechanisms include mechanical attack via biting with large mandibles,
the chemical attack by secreting toxic or repellant chemicals, and physical
defence by blocking access galleries with their bodies. The head and
mandible shape of soldier termites is important for identification.
• Workers make up the vast majority of the colony’s mature population.
They are responsible for building the nest, repairing the gallery systems,
gathering food, and feeding the other caste members. A colony without
worker termites will die.
• Neotenics are supplementary or replacement queens. Not all species
have this caste present.
• Alates are winged termites released from the colony at a particular time
of year to fly off in order to find a mate and start a new colony. In Australia,
the two main flight periods are late spring and autumn. Nests of the same
species have been known to release their alates simultaneously.
• Immature stages include all caste types that are not yet fully grown.
From a behavioural perspective, the worker termites continuously forage
randomly for food sources. When termites encounter a moisture zone or
physical barrier such as plumbing, they are more likely to forage in and
along with these areas. When they locate a new food source, a feeding site
is established, and other workers are guided, thereby pheromone trails.
Termites can mark sites as potential food sources, but they may not begin
feeding on that site until a later date. Ref: Courtesy of Sentricon Brochure 2019-2020
