By using a this method, you are not risking the natural environment around your house.

How to Effectively Use termite baiting system. (Inspection,Placement,Monitoring with a Monitoring Device,Monitoring with Termite Bait)

There are several steps involved in correctly using baiting systems which include inspection, placement, monitoring with a monitoring device, and monitoring with termite bait.

  • Inspection: To inspect before setting a baiting system will include noting any possible conditions that may lead to a termite infestation. These might looking things that include areas where there are wood – to – soil contact, excessive moisture that is caused by shade or air conditioning units, areas where stucco sidings meet the soil, foundation cracks, wood piles and wood debris that is left near the structure, and also trees and other foliage or cellulose materials that are near the structure.
  • Placement: The idea of termite bait stations are that you are creating a barrier around the perimeter of the structure. Usually, termite bait stations are placed around the perimeter at intervals of about 10 feet apart. The holes that the bait stations are placed in should be about 6 inches deep and about 1 foot away from the foundation of the structure. When you are digging holes to place the termite bait stations, you must watch for rocks that are buried underground, water pipes, or other utility lines. Once the stations are placed in the holes, tightly pack the soil around the station so that you are able to avoid any air pouches or pockets. Keep in mind that the mouth of the station must be in line with the surface. If it sticks up above the ground, there are chances that it can be pulled out or that it can ruin appliances like the lawn mower.
  • Monitoring with a Monitoring Device: One of the most important parts of termite control with the termite bait system is to regularly monitor. It is also crucial to monitor not only pre-treatment but also during treatment and post-treatment. Generally, for baiting systems, inspection cartridges and/or separate wood cartridges are used to pre-bait the termites into the station. Keep in mind that it does take some time for the termites to find the bait. On average, it can take anywhere between 1 month to 5 months before the bait is found. It is good to monitor and check the bait stations every three months. Do not replace the bait or wood cartridges until after you notice that there is termite activity. Some signs of feeding and termite activity may be mud tubes in the stations, live termites, or even dead termites.
  • Monitoring with Termite Bait: Continue to monitor activity even with the active termite bait in place. Observations and monitors should be made every 3 months. Continue to look for feeding activity and as long as there is continual feeding activity, the active termite bait can be left in the bait station. Once you find that the feeding activity has stopped, you can assume that the subterranean termite colony has been eradicated. Change out the active bait with the wooden inspection cartridge. Keep in mind that because termites cannot actually be prevented, once the termite bait systems are set in the ground, it is good to continuously monitor them. Monitoring programs should continue every three months and homeowners should continue to check for signs of subterranean termite infestations.
