You’ve got termites and you want them gone. Here’s how Exterra does it
Exterra gets to work in-ground…
To the right is a house under attack by subterranean termites. Termites have been attacking this house from some time. This is a job for Exterra.
The first step of using Exterra is to install Inground Stations around the building at points near where termites are likely to be foraging in the ground for food. The Stations contain non-toxic food preferred by termites. This food is called Interceptors.
The Stations are inspected at regular intervals for evidence that termites have found some of the Stations and are feeding on the Interceptors.
…and above ground quickly.
Here we see an installed Above-ground Station under termite attack. Above-ground Stations arc: not always installed however in certain circumstances they can be very useful. In fact, Aboveground Stations are the preferred approach when termites are in your home. Above-ground Stations are also very useful when ground access around the outside of a building makes In-ground Stations too difficult to install.
Above-ground Stations are used only when a point of termite attack in the building can be located. Bait is placed in the Station when it is installed.
Above-ground Stations can speed up the process of colony elimination. After the termite colony is eliminated, Above-ground stations are removed.
Termites have been intercepted .
Foraging termites have found one of the Stations and are feeding on the Interceptors in this scene. Notice how the termites have built tunnels in the earth that now reach the Station. This is their pathway back to the colony.
The Exterra Station ‘s designed to both speed the process of termites finding the Station and to increase the percentage of installed Stations that are actually attacked.
This is made possible because of the arrangement of the Interceptors in the Station and the high preference termites have for the wood used to form the Interceptors. The arrangement of the Interceptors in the Station is so unique, it’s patented.
