LARGO, FLA.- HomeGuard Distributors, Inc. today announced that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted registration of the company's new Termite Baiting System. HomeGuard's new Termite Baiting System, that will be called Truth, is designed to work hand-in-hand with the company's Subterranean Termite Monitors that were launched earlier by HomeGuard.
HomeGuard announced that the active ingredient for the new baiting system will be diflubenzuron at 0.25 percent. At the same time, HomeGuard also announced that it will use the EPA registration for the company's new, large above-ground Termite Baiting System that will make use of approximately two pounds of bait matrix, containing diflubenzuron at 0.25 percent, to halt termite colonies.

"We now have a unique, patented termite baiting system where the station is roughly the size of the ones currently on the market," stated HomeGuard President Glenn Gordon. "In addition, we have the separately patented above-ground system that pest control operators (PCOs) can use for a single bait application."
"Our large above-ground Termite Baiting System is the most economical way to control termite colonies, especially when you take into consideration labor costs," Gordon said.
While the HomeGuard Truth Termite Baiting System makes use of diflubenzuron as its active ingredient, that is where the similarity to other termite baiting systems on the market today ends. For example, if termites are found in one of HomeGuard's Subterranean Termite Monitoring Stations, that station is then removed from the ground and replaced by the HomeGuard Termite Baiting System. The HomeGuard baiting system eliminates the need to open the station, take out the bait matrix and then replace it.
HomeGuard's Truth Baiting System is tamper-resistant and non-reusable. There is a plastic grid across the bottom in order to keep the bait in the stations. There is also a sealed see-through plastic lid. The see-through lid provides PCOs with a clear vision of termite activity within the station. The Truth baiting system's solid wall construction helps to prevent ants and other pests from entering while also insuring that roots won't work their way into the sides of the station.
HomeGuard's Termite Baiting System will cast the same exaggerated thermal shadow as the patented and proven HomeGuard Termite Monitors. This exaggerated thermal shadow has proven to attract 1,000s of termites, and in some cases, ten of thousands of termites, to both the HomeGuard Termite Monitors and the new HomeGuard Termite Baiting System. This has proven to be extremely popular with the PCOs who have tested it. While the baiting system stations won't be able to be reused after the termite colony is eliminated, the monitoring stations can be reused simply be inserting one of HomeGuard's corrugated cellulose matrixs into the station. HomeGuard's corrugated cellulose matrix was extensively tested by and exclusively manufactured by HomeGuard Distributors, Inc.
HomeGuard's above-ground baiting stations will make use of the same system. Once termites have entered the above-ground monitoring station, it can be replaced by the baiting system and the monitoring station can then be reused at a later date.
Looking at both the new below-ground baiting system and the new above-ground system, Gordon said, "Our systems will completely eliminate the problems that come with termite baiting and colony elimination.
"We will make it so there won't be a difficult choice for PCOs to switch over to our products," Gordon stated. "Our stations will be the most affordable and the most effective termite stations on the market, while also being the easiest to use."
"The HomeGuard Subterranean Termite Baiting System offers quicker termite hits and significantly more termites in the stations, which is the key to true colony elimination," he continued. "There isn't anything like these systems on the market today."
