DOES THE WORD EXTERRA HAVE A MEANING?

Exterra is derived from a combination of three words, exterminate, termite and terra (terra is Latin for earth), the meaning of Exterra being literally that which exterminates termites in the earth.

HOW ARE TERMITES BAITED WITH EXTERRA?

Termite baiting with Exterra is a straightforward and simple multi-step process. The first step is the installation of stations in the ground at regular intervals around the structure. The stations are inspected at periodic intervals for the presence of termite activity in the station. If termites are found in a station, the station is baited. Baited stations are inspected on a regular basis and rebaited as needed. When termite feeding in a station ceases for a length of time, any remaining bait is removed at which point the process begins again. This is necessary in case the colony was not completely eliminated or other nearby termite colonies invade the area vacated by the previous colony.

WHAT ARE THE COMPONENT PARTS OF EXTERRA AND HOW ARE THEY USED?

The components are the Quarterra bait station, wooden interceptors and Labyrinth Termite Bait.

What are interceptors and how are they used?

Interceptors are specially cut pieces of a type of wood that is highly preferred by termites. Before a station is used, six wooden interceptors are placed in the station in such a way that they line the interior of the station while resting against the outer walls of the station. Because the walls of the station have numerous openings in them to the exterior, the interceptors come in direct contact with the earth when the station is installed in the ground. Once the station is installed, randomly foraging termites discover the interceptors and begin feeding on them. This feeding establishes termite activity in the station and is referred to as interception. Once termites are intercepted, Labyrinth Termite Bait is installed in the station.

Can termites be attracted to a station?

YES! Our non-toxic, easy to use FOCUS granules is scientifically proven to attract termites. FOCUS works by emitting CO2 much like rotting wood or existing termite nests. FOCUS can be added to any bait station to decrease termite discovery time.
