The Termite Monitors
- TermiTraps monitors are different to those most professional use.
They are placed up on the surface so you don’t need to fight rocks and roots digging them into the soil. They were designed for homeowner use.
The In-ground professional plastic baskets were also designed to keep homeowners out, meaning you had to pay for them to come and inspect them for any activity.
- Placed on the ground
The real reason TermiTraps termite monitors are placed above ground level is because termite scouts spend more time ‘looking’ above ground level for wood because over eons of time their instincts have reaffirmed there is more wood above than below ground level. (Think fallen logs and the amount of root compared to trunk plus branches of a fallen tree).
- Make Termite job easy
The TermiTrap on-ground monitors are placed on gardens, footpaths, gravel, etc., around the house meaning a passing scout can easily get inside to assess the big pieces of attractive timber inside… and to get out again to report their find back to the nest.
The professional termite monitor baskets and homeowner-proof lids make it difficult for a scout to get inside and even more difficult to get out to go back and make its report. The harder it is for a scout to do its job the less likely a monitor is to be discovered by a nearby threatening nest and the more likely it is for scouts to by-pass monitors and find a way inside your home.
- Making your job easy
Then there’s the easy inspection bonus! TermiTrap termite monitors are designed with a hole in the lid. Termites instinctively want to block it up; not to keep out the light but to keep in precious humidity. A glance as you walk past is all it takes to see termite mud mixture filling the hole indicating termites are busy eating the timber inside. That’s the time to add bait to kill the colony.
