Ultimately the termite bait station that you choose will be determined by the size of your home and the extent of the termite infestation.
For homes and infestations ranging from small to medium then the ideal termite bait station would be either size of Spectracide Terminate Termite Detection & Killing Stakes.
For larger homes and termite infestations the obvious choice is a professional grade bait station. No other bait station will be able to provide both maximum yard coverage and provide the extermination power of a professional-grade termite bait station.
Utilizing termite detection stakes is an easy and effective way to determine the extent of a termite infestation and discover the source.
When used in conjunction with chemical sprays, poisonous bait and professional extermination services the termite detection stakes turn a tedious, frustrating job into a simple task of pointing out the red detection stakes.
Combination detection stakes and lethal termite bait like the Spectracide Terminate Termite Detection & Killing Stakes featured here is an affordable and effective way to ensure that termites are destroyed as easily as they are detected.
When used continually the detection stakes serve as an early warning system for future termite infestations. Simply place them around the perimeter of your home and keep an eye out for any that pop up, indicating a new outbreak of termites.
Lastly, should a termite infestation ever grow out of hand and require professional extermination the stakes enable you to skip a costly assessment and hours of labor costs. The exterminator will be able to identify the areas infested with termites and quickly exterminate them.
Standard Bait Station
The standard termite bait station typically includes a two-step process. The first step is to load the bait station with bait and wait for the termites to be attracted to the bait and enter the station.
The second step typically involves removing the bait and replacing it with a termite poison which the termites are allowed to carry back to their nest.
When choosing between termite bait stations, it’s essential to consider their effective range and how many of them you will need to purchase to provide maximum coverage for your home and yard.
It’s also important to consider the effect the use of poisons and chemical agents on your yard will have on the yard and those who play in it, primarily children and pets.
If children and pets often play in the yard the better alternative to toxic termite poison may be a natural, environmental and child-friendly termite poison.
Professional Grade Bait Station
Termite infestations can be extensive, and there can be more than one nest per outbreak. In the case of severe termite infestations, the most effective solution is a professional grade termite bait station that is equipped to handle larger infestations.
Professional grade termite bait stations enable you to cover larger areas of your home and yard with more powerful, extremely potent protection from termites, and possibly even destroy the termite nest in its entirety.
Regardless of the size of the termite infestation, most termite bait stations will still recommend that a professional exterminator is hired to finish the job. However, skipping directly to the professional grade termite bait station may enable you to skip the exterminator all together, which will save you time, frustration and most importantly your hard-earned money.
