Termite Baiting

Termite Baits – An eco-friendly method to get rid of your termite problem.

Termite baiting is a modern and eco-friendly method of termite control. It stands out as the only approach that provides visible evidence of various stages of colony decline and offers a well-documented basis for declaring complete colony elimination. This method offers a reasonably predictable process for gaining control over a termite infestation, unlike traditional dusting methods, which were inconsistent and heavily reliant on specific conditions. At Professional Termite Control Melbourne, baiting is the preferred method for colony control.

Termite baits leverage the termites’ natural foraging and feeding behavior to bring about their demise.

These baits are composed of a cellulose material that is even more enticing to termites than wood itself, along with a slow-acting insecticide. The baits are strategically placed in areas where the termites are actively feeding. The termites then collect the bait and transport it back to their nests, where it is shared with their nest mates, including the queen. The slow-acting nature of the insecticide ensures that the bait can spread throughout the entire colony before it begins to take effect. By the time the termites realize something is amiss, it is already too late for them.
