Here at All-American we would like to take the time to acknowledge a great achievement of a company that we hold in great esteem. This month marks the 20th anniversary of the commercial launch of the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System™. Twenty years of successful termite prevention and control. This has saved homeowners and business owners around the globe countless dollars in damages. This system has been found to be trust worthy to the extent that it has successfully protected such important national structures as:
Statue of Liberty
U.S. Capital Building
The White House
Here in Tennessee, it has successfully defended Tennessee State University, The Hermitage, several area hospitals and over 10,000 private homes (currently 5,000 on a regular basis) from the devastating and costly damage of termites.
This new era in termite control and prevention would never have been possible without the help of many people and organizations with forward thinking ideas and ideals. This idea of baiting a colony at its natural weakness, the foraging worker, whom the colony depends upon for food, was a first in the pest control industry. Over the past twenty years this ‘bait’ has changed and morphed a few times to make it more efficient. Scientist and researchers from such places like Dow Chemical Company and the University of Florida have all contributed to the success of this termite elimination system. They suspected that if they could somehow get the foraging termite to carry the ‘bait’ as food back to the colony then the termites would be doing the elimination work for us. Termites, like many other pests, are only truly controlled when the core of the problem is eliminated, the colony.
Over these past 20 successful years Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System™ has been the focus of national media news like CNN, USA Today, and Business Week. It went global in 1996 when it was approved for use in Japan. In 1997, the European Union also realized that this system would be of benefit to their people and they followed suit. Today over 37 nations use Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System™ to combat and control subterranean termites. In 2000 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded the original Sentricon® System the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award. This award recognizes technical innovation that incorporates “green” principles in chemical design, manufacture and use. This system is the only pest management product to receive this recognition.
For 20 years innovation and forward thinking has combined and been proven successful with the history of the Sentricon® Systems. While other such companies may have come along in this time period, none have proven themselves worthy of such accolades and trust. It was an easy decision for us to choose to offer these services to our Tennessee family, friends and neighbors. We know that this system is the best option to prevent and eliminate termites. We had faith in the fact that a product and company that has been trusted to protect some of our nation’s most prized facilities and monuments would fit the bill for our clients. Contact us today for your free home evaluation and let us protect your most prized possessions.
Happy 20th Anniversary Sentricon®. May our next twenty years as allies in this war against termites be as successful and fruitful as the last twenty.
