Termite bait and monitoring stations can be used as a home's only monitoring and treatment method, or in combination with other treatment options. Termite baits can be installed underground to be found by foraging termites, or aboveground in spots where activity has been confirmed.
Monitoring stations typically are installed first, and then replaced with bait cartridges when termite activity is confirmed. Bait stations contain bait cartridges that are a mix of cellulose (termite food) and a termiticide that that will slowly kill the termites that consume it, plus nestmates the termites share it with in the colony.
