How Do Termite Baiting Systems Work?
Termites are one of the most dangerous and unpleasant infestations you can have in your home. If you’ve ever uncovered a nest of termites eating away at your home’s foundations, it can be an almost traumatic experience. The problem is that by the time you uncover them in your home, it is often too late to avoid at least some damage. It is for this reason that Cape Cod Pest Pros offers a termite bait system, to get rid of those termites before they get into your home and start doing damage.
What Is a Termite Bait System?
How does termite baiting work? When you contact Cape Cod Pest Pros for termite control, we come to your home armed with powerful termite bait stations. These bait stations are small tubes with cellulose-containing material, the type termites like to eat, packed inside. This material also contains substances known to be toxic to termites.
We analyze your property, and our experts strategically place these bait stations in the soil around your home, about 15 feet apart, forming a perimeter about 4 feet from the house. Termites are attracted to the bait stations and bring the material back to their colony, where they share it with the rest of the termites, eliminating them before they can assault your home.
Do Termite Bait Stations Work?
Termite bait stations can absolutely work to control your termite problem. While we may have other methods for taking care of the termites already in your home, we have a strong track record when it comes to preventing new termites from invading. The termite bait, while toxic to termites, is designed not to harm people or pets, and you need have even less concern than normal because the termiticide never even enters your home.
