Why You Should Never Bait Termites In The Woodlands, TX!

The Woodlands, TX is no stranger to Termites. From March to July, homeowners all across The Woodlands experience thousands of dollars in damage caused by Termites. The problem is many homeowners don’t even know they have a problem with Termites. The biggest problem of all is that Termites aren’t that difficult to get rid of anymore. So much has changed in the Termite industry and the Termidicides we use today are amazing. However, not every Termite treatment is the same. Unfortunately, some companies have found a way to scam customers of thousands of dollars each year by infiltrating their fear of Termites and selling a product that simply does not work.

Termite Bait Station

In recent months several pest control companies have sprung up in the Houston area claiming to offer green and non-toxic solutions to pest management. While their intentions are undoubtedly good, sometimes they make mistakes in their marketing practices, like using the term “termite bait” in their advertisements. As a practicing attorney in the State of Texas, this absolutely erks me!

For instance, on one of these green websites, we saw some pretty concerning things being said about blasting the termites with poison gases and then installing traps just under the soil surface to keep them from re-establishing themselves. These are not the solutions CPL Pest Control would employ for dealing with termites!

In addition, this “Termite Bait” solution cost much more than one of CPL Pest Control’s liquid barrier treatments! These companies will service your home by installing these bait stations in the ground and then work to annually charge you to service this product. Costing you thousands of dollars over the course of time for a product that does not work.

How Does The Termite Bait Process Work?

Termite bait is simply put down into the soil around your home and is supposed to attract termites. The Termites then eat the bait and die. However, the true nature of the termite bait product is that it quickly dissolves into the soil after being put down. With as much rain as The Woodlands, TX receives annually, this “Termite Bait” quickly dissolves. Making it nothing more than a poison pill with no real chance of attracting any termites.

Furthermore, should you decide to switch Pest Control companies, your current Pest Company will remove the bait stations. The problem then is, the Termites have already been attracted to the area. Thus, they do not have to look far to find your structure where they can consume wood undisturbed for some time without being noticed.

Why Does The Termite Bait Not Attract Termites?

Most species of Termites found in The Woodlands, TX are Subterranean and Formosan Termites. Subterranean termites in The Woodlands, TX forage through soil to find food and water. They do not come up from the ground and crawl over your roof and into your attic! There is no reason for them to seek food in this fashion. This is why they cause such a problem when they invade our homes: we are completely unaware of their presence until it’s too late!

So If Baiting Does Not Work… How Should I Treat My Home For Termites?

We believe the best course of action in dealing with termites is to simply liquid soil barrier treatments, following it up with a regular schedule of semiannual inspections and quarterly treatments.
