Termite baiting systems are becoming ever more popular on the Gold Coast and Tweed areas due to the system being less intrusive to install than other pest solutions, it uses 99-100% less chemicals, it’s better on the environment and you don’t have to drill hundreds of holes through your concrete pathways. This is why more and more people are turning to protecting their homes with baiting systems.
There are several types of baiting systems on the market but they all do a similar job once they are in the ground. The three main ones are Exterra bait station, Termatrix and Sentricon. All very similar and will attract termites to the stations to enable them to be baited.
The basic action of these systems is to attract termites into the station then the station is baited with a matrix that will be taken back to the nest to kill the queen and the entire colony will die. That’s Termite Baiting in a nutshell.
Why would you attract termites towards your house?
The answer is – you are not. The stations are only going to attract termites that are already there. The attractant in the stations will find termites from approximately a 2 meter diameter from the station and no further so they are only dealing with termites that are already a threat to your house.
I had a company take the money and never came back to check the system!
Another common issue with baiting systems is that you need reliable and regular service to check and maintain the baits. As the system of baiting has been thrust into the market, many companies failed to develop a system to cope with the demand of regular checking of these systems. Leaving people disappointed and disillusioned, sometimes at the whole industry.
