No digging required. The only termite monitor in Australia that sits on the ground, no, you don’t have to dig holes in your lawn and garden.
Why on the ground? Experiments and studies have shown that monitors on the ground are more effective at intercepting termites. As there is more wood in on-ground monitors, termites harvest for longer and can be moved to feed on bait easier.
Small timbers and cardboard don’t take long for termites to hollow out… you can’t bait termites if they have moved on to their next food source.
