Spectrum Brands has licensed a pop-up termite indicator technology designed by Gregg Henderson of the LSU AgCenter Department of Entomology. The pop-up indicator signals the presence of termites when a portion of the small wooden stake in its center is consumed. This makes it easier to track the presence of termites before they become a problem for larger structures. Spectrum Brands has several divisions specializing in different areas, but its United Industries division focuses solely on pest control. The indicator is sold commercially as Spectracide Terminate® Termite Detection & Killing Stakes and is available at major retailers and for online purchase.
