Termites Baiting System In Singapore | What You Need To Know

There are three main types of termite baiting systems: in-ground, above-ground, and freestanding.

In-ground systems are installed underground and work by attracting termites to the bait, which is then carried back to the colony where it is fed to other termites.

Above-ground systems are placed above ground level and work by attracting termites to the bait, which is then carried back to the colony where it is fed to other termites.

Freestanding systems are not installed in the ground and work by attracting termites to the bait, which is then carried back to the colony where it is fed to other termites.

In Singapore, termite bait treatment is a technique for attracting and ultimately destroying subterranean termite colonies using a mechanism expressly built to entice and eventually kill subterranean termite colonies. The bait will usually be a slow-acting pesticide that doesn’t immediately kill the termite.

Many chemicals used in this approach have the potential to prevent termites from reaching maturity. They either kill them or limit their growth eventually. Baits are frequently utilized throughout the colony since termites groom and feed one another. In contrast, termite baiting treatment in Singapore is intended to eliminate the entire colony of termites.


Do Termites Traps Really Work?

Bait stations can provide an effective, long-term solution for termite issues. While the bait is designed to act slowly, it does allow for the destruction of all castes of termites, including reproductives, soldiers and workers. When workers are eliminated and, as a result, food supplies are cut off, the reproductives and soldiers starve.

Where Should The Termites Baits Be Placed?

The effectiveness of termite baits, however, is subject to a number of factors. The first is position. Bait stations should be set at least 2–4 feet from the bottom of the foundation and spaced at intervals of 10–20 feet apart. They should also be placed in areas where termite activity is apparent or suspected. Woodpiles, tree stumps, and damp locations are examples of such places.


How Long Do Termites Baits Last?

The length of time that a bait lasts depends on the type of termite and the size of the colony.

Termites baiting stations can last months to a year.

However, at times, a single bait station might last only a few weeks before it needs to be replaced.

The weather can also play a role in how long a bait station lasts.For example, if it rains frequently, the baits might not last as long because the termites will be able to find food sources outside of the stations.


Factors Influencing Termites Baits Longevity

> Type of Termites

Two of the most popular termites are subterranean and drywood. Subterranean termites reside in soil near residences and use tunnels to get to food–which just happens to be the wood your house is constructed from. Meanwhile, drywood termites tunnel through your wood for sustenance instead.


> Infestation Level

The size of the termite colony is one of the main factors. If there are more insects, it will take longer to get rid of them. The experience your termite specialist has will also be a deciding factor since it can show how effective the application will be.


> Overall Environment

The treatment’s longevity is also influenced by the condition of your house. It relies on the health of all the wood components in your home. The treatment will not last as long if these elements are inaccessible or difficult to access.


When Should Bait Stations Be Checked?

Bait stations should be checked every few months to make sure that they are still effective and to see if there are any signs of termite activity.

If you notice any termites around the bait station, it is important to contact a pest control professional to determine the best course of action.

Customised treatment plan that removes subterranean termite and the drywood termites

Subterranean termite baiting systems feed termites who then take the bait back to their nests. 
This type of system can lead to the termite eradication by killing of the entire colony either by the sharing of the insecticides or the killing off of the worker termites in order to starve the rest of the colony.
Treating the soil beneath the building and around foundations when it is still in the process of construction is a good way to prevent termite infestation.
The soil in immediate contact with the foundation and floor structure of a building is treated with an insecticide which kills termites thus forming a toxic barrier which is lethal to termite entry.
Pre-construction anti-termite treatment is done in the early stages of construction so as to prevent termite infestation in the constructed building.
Corrective treatment provides total protection of buildings that were not chemically soil treated during construction stage or the soil treatment was done some years back and the chemical effect has already been bio – degraded. 
To prevent further subterranean termite invasion to the building, corrective treatment will be recommended. This involve injection of termiticide solution around the external building perimeter by rodding or drilling method.
Periodic inspection is recommended if preventive treatment cannot be carried out. 
Early detection is essential to minimise costly damage and repair from any subterranean termite infestation. 
Our qualified Thermographers will scan your home with our Thermal Imaging Camera to identify infestation areas and entry points of the subterranean termite. 
Treatment will then be carried out using our baiting system.
Get sufficient coverage and follow ups – ensuring that there will be no Termites left in your home.
