Termites and Termite Control
Subterranean termites are far and away the most destructive of all the termites and annually cause billions of dollars of damage to properties around the U.S. They are dogged in their search for food and will eat any cellulose material wherever they can find it. Worst of all, they don’t sleep, which means that they will eat away at your property all day, every day without pause.
For this reason, finding termites and eliminating them early, before they can cause irreparable and expensive damage is the most important step in termite control. One of the most popular ways of guarding your home against termite invaders is with the application of a termite bait defense system.
What Is Termite Bait Defense?
The traditional method for subterranean termite control has been to surround the perimeter of a home with liquid termiticide. The goal of this method was to provide a barrier to entry by blocking all routes into your home by providing a barrier with the termiticide. Newer termite bait systems, instead, use termite bait stations installed strategically around your home.
When termites find these bait stations, they feed on the bait and then carry the control agent back to the colony where they subsequently share the poisoned food with their colony mates. This type of termite defense is more deliberate and pointed in that it makes sure the termites bring the termiticide to the nest, and doesn’t run the risk of termites finding a way around the liquid termiticide barrier. Be aware that there are a few termite baits in the consumer market that are sold as do-it-yourself alternatives to calling in a pest control company.
Pest services know exactly where to place termite baits to ensure success, something that is difficult to do if you do not have this experience or knowledge, rendering DIY termite baits expensive and ineffective.
