“Why is it called Always Active?”

“Sentricon stations around your home are always baited with Recruit® HD termite bait.” The bait remains in all the Sentricon stations all the time, offering constant property protection for peace of mind. Termites can begin feeding on it as soon as they find a Sentricon station, then share the bait with other termites to begin the colony elimination process.

“Will the bait last long enough to do the job?”

“Recruit HD termite bait is durable to last a long time.” It continues to protect no matter what the soil condition, weather or season. In termite palatability tests and field trials, termites preferred Recruit HD termite bait over wood, and liked it even better when it got old, cracked and moldy. Bait is replaced as it gets consumed.
