Baiting systems are often sold as an alternative to a liquid soil-applied treatment. They work on the principle
of termites being attracted, in sufficient numbers, to a point; an aggregation device, baiting station or monitoring station (containing pieces of timber) where a toxicant bait can then be applied. Over time the termites consume the bait and the toxicant is transferred to the colony (similar to a non-repellent termiticide) resulting (usually) in death of the nest. Unlike a chemical soil barrier which is a continuous protective zone, these monitoring devices are usually placed around the perimeter of a home at intervals of a few metres apart in the hope that termites will find them.
