Many companies are offering Termite Baits as either their primary control technique or a combination of a liquid termiticide with a baiting system. The three termite bait systems currently available are Sentricon (Dow AgroSciences), First Line (FMC Corporation) and Ensystex. Many homeowners and consumer focus more on chosing which technique to use as oppossed to a more important issue. and that is chosing a reputable company that will STAND behind their Termite Warranty. Many companies DO NOT offer a damage quarantee with their program.. Read the fine print. Does the company offer a money back quarantee. If you are going to research a bait system contact an independent University Researcher.. Ask the company what their success rate is with their termite program... THE FIRST YEAR.
