What is termite baiting?
Salem termite baiting involves placing bait stations in-structure and below ground. These are effective against subterranean termites, the Northwest’s most common variety. Bait stations come in different varieties, and we’ll make recommendations based on your infestation level. Stations are either baited with inspection cartridges/wood or bait treated with toxicant.
- Wood/Inspection cartridge: These are checked regularly and can determine if termites are active in the area.
- Toxicant bait: Termites take treated bait back to the colony. This poisons the colony from the inside.
Stations are useful for discouraging the rooting of termite colonies. When one hasn’t yet established, this method may deter it before it gets a hold.

We know how to locate potential termite nests using on-site experience and training. Determining where termites are active allows us to place the bait stations where they will likely be found. This is absolutely necessary.
There is no substance that actively attracts termites. This makes bait station placement so important. Without correct placement and spacing near suspected active areas and beyond, the chance termites will locate the stations will be compromised. If they don’t identify the station as a food source, it won’t be effective.
