Termites can cause irreparable damage to your home or business. They only need the food, shelter and moisture of your home to survive, and they eat 24 hours a day. Termites cause up to $5 billion annually, which is more than floods and other natural disasters. In addition, most home owner policies do not cover termite damage.
While all termites are destructive, size and living environment are the main differences in the various types of termites. The three main types are subterranean, drywood and formosan. It is difficult to differentiate one type of termite from another, so it is always a good idea to call a licensed professional to determine the best way to treat the infestation.
Subterranean termites are the most common, and most destructive, type of termite. They live in underground colonies and build mud tubes to reach food sources. They can also be found in secluded and damp areas above ground.
Drywood termites are usually larger than subterranean termites. They live in wood where there is very little moisture such as in an attic. Piles of sawdust are typical signs of a drywood termite infestation.
Formosan termites, a type of subterranean termite, live in the warm climate of the southern part of the United States. They invade wood directly from the ground or by using mud tubes constructed from the soil.
Trelona Annual Bait Stations
Termite baiting stations are strategically placed around your home, giving you peace of mind, your home is protected 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
While tunneling in search of a food source, termites find a Trelona ATBS bait station, feed, then leave a pheromone trail behind them as they travel back to the colony. Upon returning to the colony to the colony, they share the bait with others and recruit more termites to follow the pheromone trail back to the source.
What they don’t realize is the bait contains Novaluron-an active ingredient that prevents the termites’ vital process of molting. Over time, more and more termites will have fed upon the bait and start to die, beginning the process of colony elimination.
In one university study, it took termites only 8 days to find the Trelona ATBS stations, while it took over 30 days to find the leading competitor’s stations.
