Please note that the key word here is 'detectors'. These, like all competing brands,
facilitate detection of active termites. Once activity is established, you need
to apply a termite killing agent of your choice.
We also supply a range of options for the 'treatment' phase.

How the TDAKS® inground system works

Call our detectors 'baits' if you wish but think 'fishing bait' rather than 'killing bait'.
All the best detectors are really 'fishing baits'.
Our detectors are installed in the soil with just the white window top showing.
When termites discover them they quickly move in.
When they hit the top, the white disclosing disc will become progressively stained.
This will be observed during routine inspections by a professional ( or home owner ).
There have been many attempts to design detectors that actually 'attract' termites.
One manufacturer developed a CO2 emitting substance which has been strongly
marketed. Their own scientific field test failed to mention the fact that water used
( to activate their 'attractant' ) was in fact the main attractant. They claim attraction
from 2 metres away but even if they did work who would want to attract termites from 2
metres away towards their home.
The most important aspect of our detectors is ZERO TOUCH.
Any movement in the food mass can cause disturbance and abandonment
by termites. This happens regularly when top removal of other types of detectors is
required for inspection.

Once termites have established themselves it's time for the 'treatment' phase.
The 'treated' termites will transfer the treatment agent to the major satellite
( or main )colony. Colony elimination or massive suppression is achieved and the
pressure is taken off.
