Let me explain to you what it is and how it is used. As termites are a significant issue for Canberra home and properties, and are in fact one of the most common causes behind property damage in the country. As termite colonies can often go undetected until they have caused visible problems with a property, they can be a serious problem for property owners and what most people are unaware of is that home insurance doesn’t cover termite damage.
As there are a number of ways in which to deal with termite infestations is by using termite baiting. The way that is works is it involves attracting termites to a particular area, and then treating them with a specially designed insecticide. The process works as the affected termites do not die immediately, but return to their colonies. In doing so, they infect the other members of their colony with the toxin they have ingested.
This proven method has been popular as over time, this results in the death of the termite colony. Baiting is one of several solutions to dealing with termites, and is often used when other treatments are not viable. One example, baiting can be a good option where using standard termiticides may pose a threat to the environment, such as in areas close to water, when pesticides cannot be used, or when barrier treatments, treatments designed to stop termite infestations occurring, have been unsuccessful.
With a licensed pest controller they should only perform termite baiting, as termite dusting often involves the application of chemicals and toxins that may not be used by other individuals.
A lot of the times many shop purchased processes for baiting termites are designed only to determine whether termite colonies are present on the property, rather than to destroy these colonies. Professional pest controllers are able to oversee the entire process of identifying, assessing, and dealing with a termite infestation, so it’s in your interest to invest in a pest control inspection the sooner the better.
There are currently several different types of termite baits available on the market. These vary in their application process, their toxins and active ingredients, their effectiveness, and how environmentally friendly they are.
Not all termite baits are appropriate to a given property, and a professional pest controller will be able to advise about which product are best suited and to be most effective for your household’s needs. For example, factors such as whether you own pets, or whether the infestation is within the home or outside the home may affect the type of termite bait chosen.
I can say one thing termite baiting can be an effective solution to dealing with a termite infestation, but as the type of treatments that are involved it is best discussed with a professional pest controller who can advise you about whether it is the most appropriate method of dealing with your termite problem.
