Is monitoring and baiting the best approach to termite control in your home?
Choosing a termite control system depends on many factors, including the complexity of your termite problem and your home’s construction type. Your Presto-X Termite Control Representative will assist you in deciding if monitoring and baiting is the right termite control solution for you.
Expert, licensed termite control specialists at Presto-X take great pride in knowing the risk areas in your home and identifying conditions that could attract termites. This helps them to know where and how to install bait stations to ensure they have the greatest impact on your termite infestation.
Firstly, unobtrusive termite monitoring and baiting stations are installed around the perimeter of your home. Your Presto-X termite specialist will regularly monitor the bait stations for any signs of termite activity.
Because of their natural foraging behavior, termites migrate toward the stations, attracted to the stations’ conditions (bait and shelter). Once termites discover the station, they eat the bait inside and then travel back to their nest where they share the termite bait with other nest mates.
Once termites begin sharing the bait, it begins killing large numbers of termites in the colony. The size of the colony gradually starts to reduce until it can no longer support itself, causing it to collapse (die off).
How Monitoring Works
Using our state-of-the-art technology, we can easily locate stations hidden in the ground around your property without disrupting your landscaping.
This innovative technology allows us to monitor the amount of bait inside the station without the need to remove the station from the soil. The longer the stations can remain underground, the better chance there is of more bait being accepted and ultimately helping to kill termites.
