In today’s face paced, super-sized, technical world it seems that all that was true and sound is out-of-date or not useful anymore – it makes my head spin at times! However, there is one adage that Benjamin Franklin quoted that seems to remain true no matter how hustled and bustled the world becomes: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This word of wisdom is timeless and as true today as it was over 200 years ago.
It is so hard for us to slow down in today’s global economy and take the time to think things through clearly in order to prevent issues before they happen, but it is such a money-saving, time-saving, stress-saving step that we should add back into our lives. Take our battle against termites for example. These little destructive creatures have been around since time began just hanging out doing their job – eating wood. The trouble is that they don’t know the difference between old, rotting stumps in your yard and the fresh solid beams in your home. Cellulose is cellulose to them. While they can be helpful in the wild, they are extremely destructive in and around your home. So let’s think this thing through – how do we prevent them from attacking our biggest financial investment?
The use of chemical pesticides is surely a safe and helpful option, especially with today’s highly advanced, highly researched products. The trouble is that for the most part, although safe to use, the chemicals technically treat the condition once it is already a problem or must be applied and applied and applied, ughhh. My thought is to prevent the termite attack before it becomes a problem, so what’s a girl to do? Well, I have found the answer! It’s the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System!
The Sentricon system is a perfect mix of old ingenuity and common sense mixed with new scientific discovery. It’s perfect! This system uses a special ‘active material’ food that is a favorite for termites. They just can’t resist eating it – and they can’t detect that there is something ‘wrong’ with it! The bait has been formulated to attack certain neurotransmitters in the termite that make it impossible for them to absorb the nutrition from the food they eat – thus eliminating them! It makes perfect sense! They carry this food back to their colonies, numbering in the hundreds of thousands, and the whole colony feasts on it – even the queen. Since we know that eliminating the queen is essential to eliminating the colony and she is so well protected deep inside an unreachable burrow, this product is ingenious – and it is safe for humans and pets! It’s a win, win in pest control!
