Termite baiting systems exploit the natural behaviour of termites. Termites share their food and gut bacteria with their nestmates via trophallaxis. This trait allows the slow-acting toxicant inside the bait to be transferred throughout the colony. Eventually, the toxicant will reduce the termite numbers to a level that can no longer maintain the colony, which ultimately falls “sick” and dies.
Benefit of using termite baiting system
Environmental Friendly; Small amounts of a termite-killing-chemical is applied when & where the termite is found only. This will not kill beneficial organism such as bees and earthworms.
Safe; Termite baits are generally consisting of Insect Growth Regulators, a mimicry enzyme/ hormone which targeting insects only. This feature makes termite baiting a safer option to be use in home, school and commercial set-ups.
Colony Elimination; Termite baiting has been proven to be able to kill and eliminate targeted termite nest.
No drilling needed; Unlike conventional termite treatment, baiting works by attracts termites to a readily accessible feeding station containing the bait matrix.
Monitoring system; In Ground baiting system is a good way of routinely monitoring termite activity surrounding your house. Treatment can be done before termite gets into your home.ce.
