What is termite baiting?
Beaverton termite baiting involves placing bait stations throughout a property. There are multiple types that are made for specific locations. This allows us to bait termites both indoors and outdoors, above and below ground. These are effective on subterranean termites. As the most common type in the Northwest, these termites spend most of their time underground and can cause extensive damage without the knowledge of homeowners. We use two different bait types.
- Inspection cartridge/wood: We bait these with wood. Regular checks let us know if the termites are active in that area and to what extent.
- Toxicant bait: Treated baits are toxic to termites. When they are taken back to the colony they poison it from the inside.
Stations are also an effective deterrent. If a colony isn’t established yet, they may be enough to eliminate the problem or cause it to relocate.

Successful battles are won with intelligent planning. That’s why our inspectors take the time to analyze your property, determine the extent of your infestation, and use tools like diagrammatic maps to determine the best course of action. Strategically setting bait traps provides the greatest opportunity for termites to find them. This is incredibly important.
There is no substance that actively attracts termites. This means they have to find bait stations on their own. Our inspectors place them beyond known active locations to establish where the colony is spreading. This allows us to attack the infestation instead of simply reacting. That’s why baiting is one of many tools we use.
