With our Bait Defend System, termite colonies march to their death. And as long as you keep your plan, annual monitoring will continue to protect your home against new subterranean termites, including Formosan. If we find anything, you’re covered against treatment and damage repair costs.
That’s it. You don’t have to do anything else. But if termites dare show any sign of activity between your inspections, call us. We’ll re-inspect right away and stop them in their tracks.
A FREE Terminix Termite Inspection is the first step to protecting your home from termites. During a termite inspection, a trained Terminix specialist will thoroughly inspect your home for any signs of termites and identify potential access points. They will work with you to keep your home termite-free and save you from treatments and damage repairs that can cost you thousands.
Individual termites can be affected within a few days after consuming the bait, but it may take several months before an entire colony is controlled.
Timing varies depending on the time of year, geography, number of termites in the colony and the number of colonies attacking the structure.
The bait contains an insect growth regulator that prevents the successful completion of the termite’s vital molting process. Because they are unable to molt, they cannot advance through their life cycle, and they die.
Once the system is installed, your Terminix service professional will periodically visit your home to check the progress.
These homewreckers exhibit continuous and random foraging behavior, so even when they have found a good source for food, they constantly look for more.
We strategically place the Terminix bait stations in areas where the termites are likely to forage.
No. Once the colony is gone, others may move in to the area.
To keep your home protected, we will continue to monitor the Terminix bait stations for evidence of a new colony as long as your contract remains in effect.
