If you are wondering how your termite control impacts your outdoor gardens and flowers, we can assure you they are safe. There has been no evidence of the bait contaminating nearby plants or affecting insects that visit those plants. The active ingredient in the bait used inside the Sentricon stations is in a pesticide group called insect growth regulators (IGRs). IGRs are considered some of the safest pesticides to use as they only affect undeveloped insects that contact or feed on them. Find out more from our experts here.
