Termite Bait System-Canton Termite & Pest Control-Cherokee County Georgia

Termite Bait System

Bait stations are essentially food stations for attracting termites. They are typically filled initially with some sort of wood product to attract termites. Once it has been confirmed that termites are active in the area, the bait is switched with a new supply coated in a slow acting poison. The termites will ingest this poison and carry it back to the nest with them.

Once termites begin to feed at the bait station systems, they will quickly spread the poison to a large majority of the nest, and this will help to decimate the population of the nest after some time has passed.

Bait stations are especially useful for homes that would require intrusive drilling for a similar liquid coverage. Bait stations can be inserted around the exterior of the home, and will attract termites to them and away from areas that would give them access to vulnerable parts of the structure. Homes with slab foundations or finished basements are well served by bait station systems, as this prevents the necessity of deep drilling to protect all parts of the structure with a liquid barrier.

Bait stations require periodic inspections by a trained technician to ensure that they are functioning correctly. While this does often come at additional cost, it allows the stations to act as a early warning system for termites. This means that the technician inspecting the stations will often find dead termites inside of the station, and will be able to identify a termite problem long before damage is being done to the home.

Just wanted to thank our exterminator Joel @Canton Termite for not only responding very quickly when we had a minor insect infestation but for ensuring we stay bug free with our normal service. He always gives us plenty of notice and arrives on time and does a very professional job. Also want to thank the entire team... Tim, Ed, William and Brent for doing an awesome job with my home and my rental homes for the last few years. Keep up the great work...

Last year the Cherokee County senior center assisted in me in finding a company to take care of a roach infestation in my home. I had tried several companies but I kept paying and the roaches never went away. William Botts with Canton Termite and Pest control came out and in 2 treatments got the job done. I am on a fixed income and appreciated the integrity and quality of this company. Today I realized I never thanked Canton Termite and Pest Control. I am thankful for what they did for me and refer my friends and anyone else who ask. They get the job done!

HONEST, HELPFUL, NOT IN BUSINESS TO RIP PEOPLE OFF! I called this company and spoke with a gentleman regarding a strange substance on the exterior of our home. I thought it might be termites because the paint was removed from the area as though it was being eaten. He asked me to email him a photo. He called me back and assured me it was not termites. He and the owner of the company gave me some suggestions of how to treat this mold-type substance. This could have easily gone in the opposite direction and charged me lots of $ to investigate a pest problem. No need to wonder if you will get a fair, honest deal with this company. They have a perfect 5 star rating because they have earned it the old fashioned way - by being honest.

I called William for a problem with carpenter bees. He was at my home within the hour. Problem solved. As we chatted I mentioned that in the spring we had birds nesting in our attic, now gone, but expected to return next year. He took the time to inspect the attic to figure out how they were getting in, and seal off the entrance... no additional charge. In short, he solved next years problem as a "good will" gesture (no pun intended). Great job. Great service. Did I mention William is now on my speed dial?

Great customer service and prompt attention! William came out and did our initial application, but we need more treatment. Ed called me in no time and set up another treatment, same day! When Brent came out he was so professional and friendly! Took care of the application quickly, reassuring us that they are there whenever we need them! So glad I am using Canton Termite and Pest Control now for my pest services!
