Termite baiting is a safe alternative to termite elimination. There are numerous systems to protect your home from termites: physical and chemical barriers, reticulation system, concrete drilling barriers, insecticidal kordon membrane barrier and many more. However, R.I.P PEST MANAGEMENT genuinely believes that the best alternative to protect & watch out for your property is Termite Baiting system. It is the way to-go when dealing with termites. Since every termite invasion and the attacked structure is different, being professional pest inspectors, we use our own skills paired with years of experiences and knowledge to find the right method of treatment/prevention for you. We install termite monitoring devices with attractive timber bait, to attract and draw out termites followed by fortnightly visit and check devices if we find the termites around the bait. Varying factors including the termite species, size of infestation, type of structure under attack and location of the termite attack are all taken into consideration, so can you can dwell without worries about termites that might be marauding through your next doors tree or fence or garden.
To find out about the termite infestation history of your own home residence (commercial or domestic) we recommend you to get a termite inspection post which we will provide you with full report of our findings. Once completed, we can then recommend the best method of treatment if we find termites and the recommendation is made including the vital factors mentioned above.
Even if termites are not found, we recommend having Termite Baiting and Monitoring system put in pace for your home with bait in the ground 24/7 for extra care to safeguard your home against the risk of a possible termite attack in future.
Monitoring includes installing termite monitoring stations around the exterior of premises, either above ground or in ground. We place these stations in strategic areas so that these can intercept foraging termites before they enter the main vital structures. Inside the stations are treated wood or baits which exterminates the termites slowly. This happens gradually as we want the bait to spread throughout the nest & eliminate the entire colony which happens only when the termites interact with other termites of the same colony resulting in a chain reaction through which the colony is eliminated.
Below baiting & monitoring process:
- Illustrated below are in ground, in concrete, and above ground stations install around structure perimeter.
Bi Monthly Monitoring service check is extremely important to maintain the attractiveness of the monitoring devices as sometimes the stations are taken over by ants, mould, snails, or the bait rots. This might hamper the purpose of the stations as termites are fussy in nature and might miss the the stations or decide not to to go near the devices due to the hindrances stated above which will eventually lead them into the house. The idea is to catch them before they reach your house.
- Our findsThis station was just centimetres away from main house wall window frame. The termites were so close that they almost entered the house. Luckily, we caught on time.
- Bait it.
- An entire colony eliminated. Left behind are the Termite skulls.
There are multiple varieties of Termite Baiting and Monitoring stations :
Nemesis termite stations are designed to be installed around the perimeter of your home within the soil. They intercept termites which create burrow through the soil before they attack your home. The termites feed on the wood inside the stations before they feed on the timbers of your home. If we find termites inside the devices while servicing your stations, we will treat the termites before they can attack your home and cause the slightest damage.
Exterra In-Ground Stationsare installed around the exterior perimeter of the property rather than inside the perimeter. They are installed into the ground so that they can intercept the foraging termites prior to their attack on your property.
Above Ground Stations
Exterra Above GroundStations are installed when termites have already started feeding on the timbers within your home. Bait is placed inside the stations and the stations are strategically placed near the areas where the termites are feeding. The termites are then attracted to the baits which accelerates the elimination process. The stations are removed once the colony is fully eliminated.
Exterra In-ConcreteStations are installed when the property is surrounded by concrete. These stations have a steel cap so nothing can get into them from the top. The purpose is to safeguard your house through the interior of the station within the concrete slab, which attracts termites in case they are foraging.
Sentricon Always Active
Sentricon Always Active Termite Stationsare installed around the perimeter of your structures. Each station contains bait which are foraged by termites, providing them the feeding source within the stations and therefore trapping them away from entering your house structures. These stations similar to all In-Ground stations and hence require servicing to ensure that the bait remains attractive for the termites to be lured in and to ensure that when the termites around found within the stations (if they are), they can be treated.
Trelona Termite Stations, like other In-Ground termite stations, are placed within the ground around the structures to protect from termite attack. They are larger in size with bigger slots to help the termites in locating the stations and have bait cannisters inside allowing termites to feed on the bait immediately. Like any other In-Ground termite stations, Trelona Termite Stations require maintenance servicing to ensure that they are effective all year round.
Exterminex In-Ground Stations are used around the perimeter of your home to catch foraging termites before they invade your property. Termites begin feeding within the station which ensures that your property is protected from termite attack. Like all In-Ground stations, Exterminex stations need maintenance and servicing to ensure the baits continue to be attractive to the termites so that they foraging can be lured in from nearby foraging spots, keeping your property safe from the termite threat.
