Chad writes,

Under customer reviews John stated that these bait stations only target the young termites of a colony....

Is there any truth to this statement, and if so on average how long does your bait station take to actually take to kill the entire colony? Thank You, A potential Buyer


John is mistaken.  Termite baiting systems will only effect the worker termites of a colony, the most important ones whose job it is to find food.  The stations target any termite, young or old, that is a worker and finds the food for the colony.  Baiting systems work by killing the worker termites which provide food for the colony.  If the worker termites die, then the colony crashes.  This can take a few months up to a year depending on the size of the colony and other factors.
