TERMITE BAITING SYSTEM

Termites are no doubt, one of the most feared residential pests. Termites work in colonies, day and night nonstop foraging for food from all your wood structures. Once termites lay eyes on the scrumptious beam, they will tear it down endlessly. Termites work in such harmony and coordination, that it is usually too late when you finally discover of their existence, because damage is done. There are many species of different termites in Malaysia, but we usually deal with some more commonly found ones. For example, subterranean termites. Subterranean termites feed exclusively on wooden structures and products containing cellulose. This is due to their unique digestive systems, whereby their intestinal and digestive structures contain high amount of protozoa that provides enzyme to properly digest cellulose. Termites are able to chew off fragments of wood using their jaws, and they can infest buildings and damage any wooden elements, like panels, flooring, paper products such as wallpaper, wooden furniture etc. The critical damage is often done to important structures around the home that could cause serious structural damage.

Conventional termite treatments like drilling and making use of high amount of chemicals in treated area still has its place depending on condition and infected areas. However, modern treatments involve much sophisticated and clean methods, like Exterminex Baiting System. This system allows for a holistic termite control treatment, it requires modern tools to completely remove the colony from your home. Briefly, we strategically place plastic sleeves around infected areas. These plastic sleeved will be filled with garments of wood, paper products and various sellulose based products acting as "monitors" to gauge termite activities and infestations. When termites are detected in these plastic sleeve stations, we will replace them with another bait that contains a powerful termiticide.

On top of replying on monitoring stations around your home, we will also be placing some baits above ground to strategic uses. This method is proactive as bait stations. Termite infestations are treated when seen. Instead, above ground stations work immediately the moment they are installed. Baits are most effective to the termite workers, because they are responsible in relaying the message to the other colony members about the food source. This will lead the entire colony to the termiticide for a complete extermination.

INTRODUCTION ON TERMITES

Termites are often the most destructive home pest around in tropical countries. They come in colonies and chew down every bit of wooden structure they could sink their teeth onto.

Termites usually feed on cellulose (wooden building blocks found in home structures), but the process of them searching for cellulose could also bring devastating damages to anything obstructing their paths, such as electrical wiring and piping systems. Termites are some of the most flexible exoskeletons around, where the entire army of termites are able to wiggle through 1/16th of an inch of cement walls or floorings. Common suspects where termites will target are wooden door and frames, wooden panels, parquet flooring, cupboards and wardrobes, wooden structures like beams and joints etc. If these are left unattended and untreated, the entire structure of the house will be compromised. This is why home owners must be aware about the importance about setting right maintenance on termite control and treatment.
