Give wood-eating termites easy-to-find decoy timbers so they don’t have to continue search for timber which could be in your home
As a colony and as individuals, termites can only follow what has been programmed into them for millions of years. Each unfailingly follows their caste role; circumstances may differ but their instincts cannot change.
It makes it easier for us to defend our homes once we understand this tyranny of termite instincts.
- Termite scouts are constantly searching for additional food.
- They always protect their environment to retain humidity and exclude ants using a ‘mud’ mixture.
- The worker termite’s main job is to find food, return to the nest and feed the nymphs and Royalty like an endless conveyor belt. It’s what they do.
Use Their Instincts Against Them
Give them plenty of Traps to find in places they go looking
The open base allows them access to discover the food inside.
The hole in the lid they seal to control humidity loss. A sealed hole tells you they’ve arrived.
By feeding them a bait which is more palatable, they take it instead of chewed wood back to their nest
When scouts find a Trap, they ‘report back to base’ and tunneling is commenced to the new food site.
Once the Trap is sealed up around the base, they seal up the hole in the lid.
This is your signal to add the bait!

What You Use
There are 22 Traps in a carton to spread around about 3 metres apart.
There is no digging. Place them on the garden soil, over the cracks between pavers, over expansion joints against the wall or in sheds, etc.
Check the signal hole in the lid as you walk past or at least every 3 months.
