Termite Solutions: Liquid vs. Baiting Treatments

When considering a termite treatment solution it can be hard to decide which is right for your home or company. The two most common systems used for termite treatment are liquid and bait systems. We’ve put together some of the main points of information for both to help you decide which system would be best for you!

Liquid Treatment Baiting Treatment
  • Chemical barrier added to the soil around the house
  • Long lasting
  • Low toxicity
  • No odor
  • Non-Repellent formula, so the termites can’t detect it and work around it (Premise products)
  • Drilling needed for application
  • Works best for structures with one main slab
  • More of a termite control system as it kills individual termites who come in contact with the chemicals vs the whole colony
  • Cost Effective (Less Expensive Option)
  • In-ground stations that monitor termite activity
  • Deploys Noviflumuron, a slow acting toxicant that gets ingested by worker termites, then passed on to the rest of the colony. It prevents them from molting
  • Can be applied directly to above-ground termite structures and infected wood
  • Continuous protection against new colonies
  • Reduces chemical use & potential exposure risk
  • No Drilling/Non-Invasive installation
  • Works well with any structure
  • Eliminates the whole colony
  • Takes a little longer to kill termites, but it does kill the whole colony
  • More environmentally responsible
  • Once the stations are taken out there is no protection and the chemicals do not linger

After weighing the potential pros and cons of each termite treatment system we hope you will be able to make a more educated decision on whether you’d like to use a liquid or bait treatment system. If you’ve still got questions, don’t hesitate to contact our office to get assistance.
