Termite Bait Systems are also designed to eliminate termites before they enter your home and are great for termite protection.
The baits are placed around your home, usually every three metres. The active termites then feed on this bait which is a combination of paper, cardboard and other termite food sources, together with a slow acting substance which is lethal to termites. The substance is also spread back to the nest and colony enabling the termite nest to be eliminated before it can attack the house.
If your home is on a sloping block, has a split-level slab or is a pole home, it’s most likely that it’s suited to a Termite Bait System.

How much does it cost?
Termite Bait Systems will cost between $2,500 – $3,500 for a small to large home and include servicing, monitoring and baiting for 12 months only. Pest companies can cut costs on these by servicing the baits less often, however these bait systems should be serviced and baited every four weeks on a 12-month program. Some homes suit a Termite Bait System over a Termite Barrier.
Each year thereafter, the service fee is usually $800 – $900 to maintain the baits. Over time, this method can end up costing a home owner triple the cost of a Termite Management System.
