be registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a reduced-risk pesticide. A reduced-risk pesticide is one that the EPA believes has low impact on human health, low toxicity to non-target organisms, and low potential for groundwater contamination.

Hexaflumuron’s mode of action is to inhibit chitin synthesis. Termites produce chitin to form or maintain an exoskeleton.

Hexaflumuron is an odorless white solid that is formulated into low-concentration solid briquettes that are contained within tamper-resistant bait stations. Formulated hexaflumuron briquettes contain about 0.5% of the active ingredient, with the balance comprised almost entirely of cellulose and a polymer binder.

Hexaflumuron formulations have been marketed under the trade names RECRUIT AG termitebait, SHATTER termite bait, SENTRI*TECH, RECRUTE Pro, Hex‑Pro Termite BaitingSystem, Sentricon IG Termite Bait, Sentricon AG Termite Bait, Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System
