How Well Do Termite Bait Stations Work
How well do termite bait stations work? Can you buy bait stations at a big box store and expect to keep your home safe from termites? The answer is that the best protection against termites and the best way to eliminate termite colonies depends on many factors, like the species of termites you’re protecting against and the location of your property. A professional termite control technician is the best-qualified person to inspect your property and recommend you. The manufacturer of consumer termite bait stations even recommends calling a professional pest control company like BUGCO. Call BUGCO at 281-240-2157 to protect your home from termite damage.
Choosing between bait stations and a liquid termite treatment
- Termite bait stations aren’t always the best option to protect your property from termites, but sometimes we use them as the best way to detect the presence of termites and eliminate a colony. We may have to use them for environmental reasons because we can’t use our very effective liquid treatment Termidor within 65 feet of a pond, lake, or stream. We also sometimes use bait stations to kill termite colonies established in a building and not in contact with the ground.
- The big box stores sell termite bait stations from Spectracide. These bait stations might kill some termites, but they might also break up the termite colony to form new colonies. Your termite problem just got worse! In fact, on its website, Spectracide includes the following warning — Spectracide Terminate products are not recommended as sole protection against termites, and for active infestations, get a professional inspection.
- Liquid treatment of Termidor HE around the foundation of your home or building can last for 8 – 10 years.
- With annual re-inspections, we can provide our customers with a lifetime, transferable warranty. Call our office at 281-240-2157 for more information.
