Termite Bait Stations
Installation & 12 Month Monitoring Program
Termites cause more damage to houses each year in Australia than all the floods, fires and storms combined and cost Australian’s more than $100,000,000 each year. It is for this reason termite protection is one of most important investment you can make. Sherry’s Termite and Pest Control offer a range of termite protection measures including Termite Bait Stations installation and Monitoring.
Homes built around Australia are built using many different construction methods, some of which make a soil chemical barrier ineffective. Termite bait stations are exceptional as they offer a high level of protection from termite attack regardless of the type of construction used to build your home and is completely safe and non-toxic.
Termites are constantly on the move through the soil in search of a new food source and can travel more than 50 meters from a nest in search of food. It is because of this that bait stations are so useful in termite protection. Once installed around the perimeter of your home the bait stations, filled with timber, are the first point of contact for foraging termites. A 12 month monitoring program includes regular 8 week inspections of the stations where termite activity will be picked up early to allow effective baiting.
The bait is introduced to the active station for the termites to begin to feed and over time the whole colony will be destroyed. This can take multiple visits and regular replenishment of the bait, all of which is included in the 12 month monitoring program. Unlike chemical barriers that need to be reapplied every few years termite bait stations are a complete termite management plan offer a high level of protection that will last the life of the building.
