Pest control professionals will often install monitoring stations within the soil to help them identify subterranean termite infestations. Later on, once the active areas have been located the monitoring stations are replaced with bait stations filled with slow-acting bait. Worker termites collect and take the bait back as feed for the other members of their colonies.

Slow Process of Termite Bait Stations

Over time, as the worker termites continue feeding the bait to the colony, several generations living within the colony will be killed. Bait stations have proven to be an effective way to treat entire infestations because of their large impact on the colony. But because it is a slower process the results might not be rapid enough to cope with areas of extremely dense populations that are causing severe damage.

Additional Option for Termite Control

In instances with dense populations experiencing large amounts of damage, it might be best to use conventional liquid insecticides to address problem areas. A local pest control specialist can help you determine the methods that would be right for you.

Initial Steps You Can Take to Treat Termites

Homeowners should also identify possible termite food sources such as such as woodpiles or any potential moisture sources. Identifying these at risk areas is an important step towards the control of existing infestations as well as the prevention of future infestations. It might be in your best interest to employ a variety of control methods.
