Q&A Home

Tim from Sacramento, Ca. writes,

If I had found termites in my back yard, away from my house, will the baiting system work?

If I were to plant one of these guys right on top of where I found their nest two years ago, would that be the best way to go about killing the colony? (I would also be installing these at 12' intervals around the house)


There is no way to know for sure if that same colony would find the station.  However, any wood that is left in the ground will eventually most likely have termites in it....so eventually a termite colony would find it.  There are always termites around in the ground, but our main concern is protecting your home which is why installing the baiting system around your home should be your first goal.
