You might have heard about termite bait. Termite bait works by feeding termites, then termites travel back to the colony and share the bait with other members. More termites are then sent back to feed on the bait. As feeding on the bait continues and more termites have affected, the termite colony starts to die and is finally eliminated. You might even have come across so-called termite baits in powder form which you might obtain them from shops or from the mainland of China. It is easy to do-it-yourself, isn’t it?
In fact, you could hardly buy real termite baits in streets or shops. Those so-called termite bait that you could buy from shops might be a kind of insecticide in powder form without colony elimination effect. Or even worse, some powder are said to be made with poisonous substances such as cyanide. Make sure real termite baits in Hong Kong have proper label and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), plus a Hong Kong pesticide registration number.
You are requiring a real professional to do this important job for you. Only bait will not suffice, effective control of termite colony requires:
- a combination of methods and techniques
- bait with right ingredient for colony elimination effect
- advanced system and equipment
- extensive experience in termite control
- high safety standard
