Termites are one of the biggest problems homeowners face. In this article, we will look at the Exterra termite interception baiting system, one of the best termite pest control options available. Read on to see how it works and realise your termite challenges now have a solution!


Say Bye to Termites

Termites are sneaky little creatures that nest underground and multiply before they get ready to attack your house. They are often difficult to detect until the problem gets out of hand and the damage has already been done.

Termites love to feed on wood and without intervention they will attack your floorboards, joists and the wooden beams that support your house. This type of activity can result in severe structural damage that can cost thousands of dollars to fix.

The only way to truly get rid of termites is to eradicate the colony. That’s why our experts use the Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System. It’s a dynamic system that is safe for you and your pets.


How The Exterra System Works

Experts will examine your property and identify the problem areas. The next step is to lay Exterra stations around your house and property. The Focus Termite Attractant is then added to each station. This reacts with soil and lets out a low level of CO2. The termites follow this into the Exterra station.

REQUIEM is the bait that is used in the trap. The termites eat the bait and take the “food” back to their colony thereby eliminating it. The termites can’t get enough of this tasty but toxic treat and eat it until they eventually die. The key to making the system work is the baiting system of the patented FOCUS Termite Attractant.

Another fun fact is that termites prefer the taste of REQUIEM to the taste of the wood in your home. The bait attracts the termites, so they won’t enter your home. The termites are led directly to the trap and the traps are placed strategically to form a barrier to protect your home. These stations can attract all termites within a two-mile radius.

This system works so well because it’s the only one that intercepts the termites and creates an interception zone around your property. It can even keep the termites at bay for years. Think of it as your own pest control security system that keeps termites out!


Where Can You Use Exterra?

The traps are installed around your property in the ground where the termites are. If we encounter a termite infestation under concrete a special Exterra in-concrete station can be installed. If the little pests have already made it into your house, then Exterra above ground stations can be used.

The bait REQUIEM is placed in a sealed station. They go to work immediately to attract the termites. This allows our experts to see the termites without disturbing them.

Once the termites have died the trap is cleaned so there are no traces of the REQUIEM left. Then fresh timber is placed in the stations to help keep your property protected from the next termite invasion.


Maintaining the Trap Stations

Baiting stations should be inspected on a regular basis to make sure they are still effective. Our experts can inspect the station without disturbing any termites that may have entered it. This is due to the patented open cavity design.
