How to take care of termites in the attic?

After installing some of these stations in ground, it was observed that there is termite activity in attic in other end of house. Ground area under that part of attic is all concrete (driveway and sidewalk). If I place some of these stations in attic will it work, or it works when installed in ground only?

Answer:

The advance termite bait station will not work above ground.  It is meant for and will only work when installed into the ground as the instructions recommend.  For treating termites in an attic space, Bora-Care is the go to product.  Bora-Care is a wood treatment product that you can apply directly on the wood in the attic.  Bora-Care can be applied to any wood that is not painted, stained, or sealed.  Bora-Care will penetrate directly into the wood and kill the termites in the wood and also protect it long term.  Your only option in an attic space is to treat the termites directly.
