Does Termite Bait Work?
Termites can be difficult to detect and exterminate. One of the best tools for both is the professional termite baiting system Vancouver WA deserves from the experts they trust. At The Killers we know how to place the different bait stations in order to get results. When used in tandem with additional methods, bait stations are an excellent way to weaken or eliminate a colony. They can also act as a deterrent and early detection system for future infestations.
What is termite baiting?
Vancouver WA termite baiting involves the careful placement of bait stations within your property, around it, and beneath it. These are effective against the Northwest’s most common termite species, the subterranean termite. Our termite inspectors place stations based on your infestation size, activity, termite species, and much more. These stations contain wood cartridges for detecting activity, or treated bait the termite will carry back to the heart of the colony.
- Inspection cartridge/wood: These are placed at regular intervals and checked frequently. They are one of the best ways to determine the movements and range of termites during an infestation.
- Toxicant bait: Treated bait is poisonous. Termites will take it as a food source back to the colony, poisoning it from within.
If termites haven’t gained a permanent foothold, stations may provide enough of a deterrent to stop a problem before it starts.
Get professional termite baiting for the best results.
Every termite baiting begins with a thorough inspection. The termite baiting that Vancouver WA exterminators use must follow a number of procedures. We use extensive training and experience to identify termite activity above and below ground, inside and outside your property. Intelligent placement of stations gets the best results.
There is no substance that attracts termites. A termite attractant does not exist. That’s why bait placement is so important. If they aren’t properly staggered it can greatly reduce the chance of the trap being located. If termites don’t find them, they won’t be effective.
