Abstract/Contents:"FirstlineĀ® and Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination Systems were monitored at 20 residential home sites in Tucson, Arizona for their ability to control Heterotermes aureus (Snyder) infestations. FirstlineĀ® and Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination Systems were each installed at 10 homes. Five of the homes were designated either as curative (having active infestations) or preventative (having no active infestation). During the 2 year study, 3 residents terminated their involvement in the FirstlineĀ®, while all of the Sentricon Termite colony Elimation System homes remained in the program. Mean number of days to first hit at curative homes was 84 versus 96 for FirstlineĀ® and Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System, respectively. Average bait consumption for the FirstlineĀ® system was 14% for the curative homes and 10%for the preventative homes. In contrast the bait consumption for the Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System was 51% for the curative homes and 58% for the preventative homes, which was significantly different at (P<.05)."
