Inground Baiting Stations
•The leading termite monitoring baiting stations are the (click here) Trelona termite baiting devices which require a lot fewer chemicals for a complete colony eradication to be achieved when related to other termite stations as being more eco-friendly than chemical protection because no harsh chemicals are being put into the ground. If you’re truly against using a chemical in the soil next along with your home, a non-toxic termite baiting option would be a better choice for you. However, chemical termite treatment still provides the best protection.
•Termite monitoring stations consist of bait stations inserted into the ground around the perimeter of the home and at other prospective termite hot spots on your place (e.g. near trees, damp garden beds, etc). These in ground bait stations come in a cartridge and need to be checked very 6 months. The idea of this that if there are any live termites in your home, they will find the bait stations and start feeding on the active on application’ system. Once they start feeding, a termite bait (including a slow, impermanent insecticide) to the residual termiticide and Insecticide. The termites then start feeding on the active bait, taking it back to the queen and killing off the colony. With a baiting station, it is important that the trelona bait stations are inspected twice a year, and there is no lock in contracts with this brand.

•When you are building a commercial factory, warehouse or a new home, renovating a just a new extension to a steel frame, termite protection must be installed. Australian Standards 3660.1 states that a physical barrier must be integrated into all new house or building work that needs a termite protection system.
