A termite baiting system can be an integral part of your strategy for protecting your home from termites. These pests are common throughout California and pose a constant threat to homes. You can minimize your risk of getting an infestation with proactive steps like keeping up with home maintenance and getting routine termite inspections. Another way to be proactive with termite prevention is to have a termite baiting system installed. You should consider having a termite baiting system installed because it will help you stay on top of the level of termite activity in your area, keep a professional eye on your property, and provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are being proactive.
Stay on top of the level of termite activity in your area
Baiting systems are designed to monitor termite activity around your house. A baiting system includes several individual bait stations. Inside the bait stations there are blocks of easily digestible wood. As termites move past the bait stations, they may encounter the wood and feed on it. When the termite pro comes to check on the baiting system, the condition of the wood will be an indication of the level of termite activity in the area. This information will help you decide when to take action against termites and also determine what type of action is necessary.
Keep a professional eye on your property
Another reason to consider having a termite baiting system installed is that it will allow you to keep a professional eye on your property. Part of having a professionally installed baiting system is having routine monitoring of the system by a professional. This means that you will have a termite pro look at your property at least twice a year.
