Sentricon at Work!

The Sentricon® System is a powerhouse of termite protection for your home, but did you know you can find commercial installations of Sentricon all over the United States? This year, we’ve had the privilege of working with two historic organizations in Kansas on both annual servicing and a first-time installation.

Waters Hall, Kansas State University

Over a year ago, Sentricon was installed at Kansas State’s Entomology Building  to eliminate a major termite infestation. When we returned to historic Waters Hall for the annual servicing, we found that the Sentricon System with Always Active Technology™ had indeed eliminated the long-standing termite infestation from the building. Waters Hall is one of the older buildings at the university, with construction beginning on the East wing in 1913. Because the building houses laboratory research on a variety of insects, a liquid termiticide could not be applied without threatening the Entomology Department’s subjects. Therefore, the Sentricon® System was a perfect fit to eliminate the termite colonies that were “bugging” Waters Hall. Thanks to American Pest Management  for their hard work on the project!

Museum of World Treasures, Wichita, Kansas

Wichita’s citizens are proud of the Museum of World Treasures. Its vast collection of historic artifacts-ranging from a skeleton of a T-Rex named Ivan, to Egyptian mummies, items from World War I and exhibits from the American West-was under attack from several colonies of termites. Museum officials called on Patton Termite and Pest Control to undertake an installation of the Sentricon® System to protect the building and the treasures it holds. On Earth Day 2014, the hard work began. As you can see, the Certified Sentricon Specialist® had to do some coring through brick and concrete because of the museum’s downtown Wichita location!

The Museum of World Treasures is a large building in Wichita’s downtown area, but it’s now fully protected by Sentricon®.

Along with each Certified Sentricon Specialist®, we’re proud to be able to protect some of our country’s most important buildings from termites. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make these installations and site visits a success. Throughout the year on our blog, Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages, follow along as we show you examples of Sentricon at work!
