What is termite baiting?

In simple terms, the purpose of a termite bait system is to intercept termites in the grounds or gardens around your home – before they reach, and potentially damage your property. The sole purpose is to eradicate termite colonies.

This is achievable through termites returning the actual bait back to the nest.

Baiting stations are a great way to safely detect and eradicate termites where a chemical soil barrier is not practical or possible. It’s also a safer alternative for property owners who prefer not to use traditional chemical treatment methods.

 

termite bait system imageHow termite baiting works

Termite Bait systems are designed to intercept termites in the grounds around a property or structure. When termites begin feeding in the baits a powder form bait is mixed and added to the live bait station.

Termites begin to feed the bait back throughout the colony, this will result in the elimination of the colony. The bait that termites feed on has an insect growth inhibitor in the bait that prevents the moulting process of the colony and over 6-12 weeks kills the nest.

Types of termite baits

Above ground baits

These are used inside a building or structure to provide instant feeding of bait directly to the colony. These baits are fixed temporarily to a window frame, door or wall where live termites are feeding.

In Ground Termite Baits

These are installed in the ground and under concrete paths around a home, it is common for a standard sized home to have 20-24 In ground termite baits installed around the perimeter usually 3 meters apart.

Termite Bait Servicing

After the Termite Bait System is installed the baits must be serviced 4-6 weekly or there may be risk of the bait being entirely consumed and termites then abandon the station. This will result in termites looking for another food source. During a site service, any stations needing fresh timber or bait added will be done during the service, A site service sheet will also be done and emailed to the homeowner.

How long till the bait kills Termites?

Depending on the type of Termite species will depend on the time needed to control the colony, as termite colonies are eliminated during the moulting process. So, the average time for the colony to be eliminated is usually 6-12 weeks, as termites feed on the bait in the first 2-4 weeks the termites mouth parts start to soften, so termites will only be able to consume the bait and not your home.

How much does it cost?

The cost of a termite baiting system for a standard sized home will usually cost $2,600 – $3,500 and this will include

  • Termite Inspection of the home
  • Internal bait installation to live termite areas
  • Installation of full perimeter bait system around home
  • Servicing and baiting of all baits monthly for 12 months

Are termite baits safe?

Yes, The active ingredient in termite bait is much less than table salt. It has no odour and is irresistible to termites. As it has a chitin synthesis inhibitor inside it affects insects with an exoskeleton only. It won’t have any adverse affects on your family, pets or native animals.

This company actually investigates the problem instead of just spraying your place and leaving. Very HIGH knowledge and experience in what they...read more do. They took the time to investigate the cause, the source of the problem and elimnated it completely which included going through every cupboard, cracks hiding spots the lot. We had a cochroach problem in our apartment for 3 months and we had 4 different companies come out and NONE of them investigated they only sprayed. After we called PestEx, Mr. Phillips was very knowledgeable and experienced eliminating our problem entirely. We also use PestEx in our shop and both Mr Phillips and Marty are EXCELLENT in resolving and maintaining pest problems. HIGHLY RECOMMEND PEST EX. BEST I'VE SEEN IN QUEENSLAND.
