Getting rid of termites has always been a tricky business. It can be hard on your budget as well as the environment. But in tonight's KTAB Going Green Report, KTAB's Kaily Franz says there is a new option.
One of the newest weapons in the war against termites is about the size of a sugar packet. It's a bait system called Sentricon.
A few grams of pesticide, instead of gallons, is certainly easier on the environment.
The new system uses a rifle approach as opposed to a shotgun. The stations are only put where they're needed, minimizing the impact on people, plants and animals. It also results in a lot less groundwater contamination.
Sentricon is the only termite product to ever win the presidential green chemistry award--one of the government's top environmental honors.
Sentricon has been installed at the White House, the Statue of Liberty, the Alamo and Graceland.
