Tom Termite Takes Over During Termite Awareness Week!

From March 17th through the 23rd, 2014, the Sentricon® System promoted Termite Awareness Week.   However, at the beginning of the week, “Tom” Termite hacked into the Sentricon Twitter  account and proceeded to take over the tweeting duties. How did Sentricon eventually rid its social media of Tom? By doing what it does best—by utilizing scientific knowledge of termite behavior to eliminate the colony by ending the food supply chain they need for survival. In case you missed it, here is the timeline of Tom’s takeover, social media mischief, and ultimately his discovery of the bait station, which was his—and the colony’s–undoing:

But first, Tom posted this self-portrait:

And this was his first post:

He immediately went to work finding food for the colony…

And shared some gossip.

Eventually, Tom happened upon the Sentricon® System.

He liked what was in the bait station so much he made a video:

Tom complained a bit about his work.

But overall, he seemed happy.

Sometimes he shared too much information.

The other worker termites got in on the good eats, too.

However, it wasn’t too long before Tom felt something wasn’t right. Could it be that Sentricon was doing its job?

And eventually, the entire termite colony started feeling the same way. So long, Tom.

While Tom’s story may have been fictional, the effectiveness of the Sentricon® System is for real. Luckily, we were standing guard against Tom and the rest of the colony. Does Sentricon protect your space?
