In a nutshell:
Baiting and monitoring (trapping)
If it sounds simple, it is.

If you’re like most people:
You’re happy to save a buck
But you’re not going to risk your house doing it
So why believe a site on the net that says you can do the job yourself, safely, effectively and potentially save big money in the process?
In a career of 50 years, I’ve worked as a pest controller, trained as an entomologist, taught pest control at TAFE and authored the texts that are still used in teaching today.
I’ve seen what works and I’ve seen the gimmicks.
My original termite trap system was a world-first. Homeowners could now use government approved bait and techniques to do a job that until then was for approved professionals only.

The Termikill system has worked for thousands
of Aussie homeowners.
It can work for you too. Here’s how.
There’s bait, and traps.
They’re sold seperately, but most people choose to purchase the kit including one of each.
Registered for homeowner use by the APVMA in Canberra, use these baits to kill the whole colony and remove the termite threat. Deadly to termites but 100%
Ready for use. Peel text label, add water and affix to infected areas.
There are 22 Termite Traps in a carton, enough for most homes. Place them ON surfaces.
Fully illustrated instructions on where to place them are included in your carton. No digging or drilling is required. Spreading them is a 15-minute job you do once and they’ll last more than a decade.
After a successful baiting, they can be refilled with more timber so the monitoring cycle continues.
UV protected plastic we guarantee to last for 10 years
The Colony Killing System is an all-in-one DIY kit.
You’ll receive everything you need to kill termites you’ve found, and set up a perimeter defense against those outside your house.
Easy to understand, illustrated instructions included.

If you’ve just found termites eating wood in or around your home, you need Tuckerbag Termite Bait to kill the whole colony… and some advice.
Why Tuckerbag Termite Bait?
it’s the same professional strength formulation with two important benefits…
It is inside a silver foil bag that keeps
Simple? How simple?
Your termites didn’t want to be found; they kept out of sight eating away at the timber just below the paint or surface. Baiting works when you work with them so….Find a spot along the timber (such as a door or window frame, etc) where they have come close to the surface.
A hole in the foil will be revealed as you pull off the red label and you simple align this hole in the bag with the hole into the termites.
In a week or
Lastly, it usually takes more than one Tuckerbag to kill a colony. You have the choice of removing and replacing the original bag with a new bag… or you can spoon bait from the new bag into the original bag. If you choose to spoon, you are less likely to tear off the surface of the timber if it is paper thin, resulting in confused and angry termites that may get so peeved they leave.
That’s it! Feeding the dog is probably more complicated. You certainly have to feed the dog more often.

How do white ants/termites find Termite Traps?
Do monitors attract termites to my house?
My house is only three years old. It must have been built to meet Codes including termite preventive measures, and anyway, isn’t there a seven-year builder’s warranty to cover me?
If termites are already in my house can I use Termite Traps to entice them out?
What are the dimensions of a TermiTrap?
Is it legal for homeowners to buy and use your bait?
I’ve read about ‘serious’ and ‘nuisance’ termite species. How can I tell the difference?
How do termites get into the Trap?
My house was built more than twenty years ago and there has been no termite attack, why would I bother putting monitors around?
I understand termites can do $50,000 plus in damage to a house in a short time. Doing something about the termite threat is obviously sensible, however, aren’t chemical barriers better value, even though more costly than termite monitors?
What is a nest?
We have lots of ants which we know are the enemy of termites. Do we still have a termite problem?
Won’t dogs or kids move the Traps?
If you place the Termite Traps around the house with the dog locked in the garage or the car where it can’t see you put the Traps down, there is no reason for the dog to believe they are a movable plaything. When you let the pooch loose, some investigatory sniffing may occur but as it doesn’t play back, the Trap will probably be ignored. In all our trials and after all the cartons we’ve sent out, only one dog story has come back to us. (The Trap was placed inside the dog pen). As for kids? They are supposed to leave things alone if they are told, so tell them. After all, you have your home investment to protect.
