Termites can hide within the structure of your house and getting to them can be difficult, but there are several methods you can use that will reduce, and eventually eliminate, the population that infest your home.
The key to using termite bait systems effectively is to understand the different places where the termites travel and hide in and around your home.
There are two parts to most termite infestations; first, there are the termites that are actively destroying the wood in your home. These are usually the workers of the colony, sent out to forage for new materials to eat and bring back to the main colony.
Second is the main colony itself, which is the larger scale problem that is often offsite from the nest or nests that you might find in your home. There is often evidence of the insects travelling back and forth between the main colony and the off shoot nests in the form of raised dirt tunnels near the exterior of your house.
Once the signs of an infestation are apparent, it’s time to examine exactly what kind of bait system will be best to use.
There’s no doubt that termites are among the hardest pests to get rid of. Add to that the fact that they can do a large amount of damage to your home, and leave you with a massive repair bill, and you can see why they are one of the largest pest threats to properties all over the United States.
Not only are they known to cause large amounts of damage to homes and businesses if they are left unchecked, but they also do not respond to the more simple methods of pest control that you might employ to get rid of insects such as roaches or ants. Because they hide and nest deep within your home as well as underground, just reaching them to apply pesticides can be a significant challenge to overcome.
Because the insects are so reclusive, it is important to locate the areas where bait will have the greatest effect.
Key Steps To Correctly Placing Termite Baits:
Given that termites can be found deep underneath the ground, it is vital to make sure that whenever you are placing baits that you drill the holes deep enough to reach the insects where they hide and travel. Failure to do so will leave you with the exact same population of bugs and having essentially wasted money on the product in question.
One of the reasons to use termite bait systems is to provide a protective barrier around your home to keep termites from entering in the first place. This can only be accomplished if the baits are placed around the entire perimeter of your home, leaving no space that isn’t within the manufacturer’s range of effectiveness, which varies but is usually roughly 10 feet away from the station itself. Therefore there should be bait every ten feet or less to have the desired effect.
