Ted Brayton spells fast termite control R-E-C-R-U-I-T-A-G.
How fast? Brayton, of Griggs & Browne Termite and Pest Control in Abington, Mass., took out a major termite infestation in 45 days using Recruit® AG termite bait.
When he first arrived at the house for the inspection, Brayton couldn’t believe his eyes.
“When I rang the doorbell, I looked up at the house and I could see termite damage on the siding, visible all the way up the house,” he recalls. “It was significant damage.”
In fact, Brayton found termite damage on the exterior siding of all four sides of the house. But the most extensive termite activity was in the home’s crawlspace.
To act fast Brayton immediately installed Recruit AG bait stations on all accessible, active mud tubes in the crawlspace and the Sentricon® System with Always Active™ technology around the perimeter of the home.
“When the tech went back to the house 30 days later, all eight AG stations had termite activity,” Brayton says. “Our technician then installed two more.
“Forty-five days after installation, all termite activity had ceased in the AG stations,” he says. “We only found activity in one in-ground Sentricon station. We probably eliminated the colony in less than 60 days just using Recruit AG.”
Dow AgroSciences sales representative Michael Gelhaus, who visited the home with Brayton, says Recruit AG is a valuable sales tool.
Brayton says the homeowner was very satisfied that Griggs & Browne was able to rid his home of termites so quickly.
“It’s great to be so successful with Recruit AG,” Brayton says. “This is probably the fastest that we solved such a severe problem in the 17 years we’ve been using the Sentricon System. To go eight-for-eight with every above-ground station we installed is a home run!”
