Termite Baiting System Provides Excellent Termite Control
Termites survive on wood and can be obliterated by means of using one or several termite extermination methods. One of which is termite control using termite baiting system. Exterra Termite Baiting System is one of the most popular in Malaysia. This excellent termites baiting system is by far the most effective system to exterminate an entire colony of termites. Termite baiting system is classified as ‘green pest control’ which has been designed to imitate termite’s food supplies. The system is not in any way toxic and does not contribute to pollution. They are made from plastic, not harmful and if used correctly would not affect any other living organisms.
Eradicate Termite Colony with Termite Baiting System
Termite baiting offers a mean for eradicating termite colony that may be threatening your properties. Where termites have already attacked, introducing them to a baiting station can be easy. Installing a termite baiting system can be a breeze too. Start with the baiting station; the plastic box that has a removable lid and openings in the back to allow termite entry. This station is fixed to an area where termites are active and the bait station will then be filled with bait and the lid replaced. The station is left undisturbed for 3- 4 weeks and must then be regularly checked and the bait refilled.
As for preventive purposes, the termite baiting station is placed where termites are normally found. At the moment the best we can hope for is that termites accidentally found the baiting station as they search for foods. Once a bait station is discovered, the worker termites would identify the baiting station as food resource and would attract other termites to join the feast.
However, there is no guarantee that termites will find the baiting station. It is highly recommended that multiple termite baiting system is installed within 3 to 5 meters apart. Installing the termite baiting system for perimeter fencing would require digging holes around the property to set up the baiting stations with the baits. The more termite baiting stations you installed, the higher the likelihood termites are able to find them.
Controlling termites through termite baiting is a technique that offers highly selective way of controlling termites and possibly eliminating the entire underground colony. The time it takes for the elimination of an entire colony can vary greatly and is dependent on many factors. The factors that have varying impact on the time taken to eliminate the entire termite colony which include termite species, time of year, distance from the colony to baiting station and the size of the colony.
As compared to liquid termiticides applied to the soil surface, termite baiting system have the ability to get the termite baits into a colony that may be hidden deep in the ground. Once the baits are installed, the termites get attracted and feed on the poisonous bait. Similar to other foods they found, they will take it back to feed their colony. Once consumed, the poison spreads and the colony will eventually be eliminated.
