Effective Termite Control Treatments from Rentokil
At Rentokil, we provide a wide range of termite control solutions that are tailored specifically for your particular needs.
Monitoring & Baiting
A holistic solution that uses unobtrusive monitoring stations placed discreetly around the premises. Our termite experts will routinely monitor these stations for termite activity and when detected, bait will be added to the system. The highly palatable bait contains an active ingredient that inhibits termite growth. When the bait is shared and spread, it will gradually affect the colony until it can no longer support itself and collapses.
Having monthly or every 2 months termite inspection is essential to minimise costly damages and repairs from termite infestation. Rentokil Termite Inspection provides you with a full termite assessment to all accessible areas where potential termite problem might occur, so you can have a complete peace of mind.
After the termite inspection is completed, we will provide you with effective recommendations on the treatments available if active termite activities are found. But if there is no sign of infestation, our termite experts will advise you on a proactive termite monitoring and preventive plan, especially if you live in a high risk area.
A comprehensive termite inspection by Rentokil is the best protection against termites by providing early detection of termite activity, saving you from serious damages on your property.

Termite Baiting Treatment
How Termite Baiting Treatment Works?
Rentokil termite baiting treatment is specially designed to safeguard your property against subterranean termite infestation. Adopting the unique Seek, Bait and Eliminate method, this system destroys termite colonies by using an advanced termite baiting system and microwave termite detection technology.
Rentokil Colony Elimination Professional Programme
An innovative solution that is safe and non-toxic to seek, bait and manage termite infestation problem. The programme involves utilising an advanced Microwave technology to detect the presence of subterranean termites accurately, before strategically placing baiting and monitoring station that covers above- ground and in-ground area.
Due to their natural foraging behaviour, the termite workers will find the will then feed on the bait and share it with other termites in the colony. The active ingredients in the termite bait affects termites by stopping the moulting process they need to grow. As the worker termites die off, the colony declines to the point it can no longer sustain itself, ultimately leading to its elimination.
How the baiting system works
- Baiting systems consist of plastic sleeves with pieces of wood, paper and cardboard or any cellulose based materials to serve as “monitors” that are placed in the ground around the home.
- These “monitors” are then replaced with a bait once termite feeding has been detected.
- Above-ground systems with bait are also used proactively to address sites with active termite activity above ground.
- Baiting procedures are conducted by experienced and qualified service technicians.
- Quality checks to ensure that the termite baiting solution is carried out accordingly.
- Technical support from local and global expertise.
- Provide termite warranty, warranty period according to package purchased.
- Non-disruptive – no indoor drilling required
- Peace of mind – routine and ongoing checks for signs of termite activity
- Environmentally friendly – all stations contains non-toxic bait
- Designed with highly attractive compressed cellulose formulation
The choice of a termite control system depends on many factors including, the termite species, your property’s construction and the severity of the termite problem. Your Rentokil termite control team will help you decide if the baiting method is right for you.
Signs of Termites
Termite infestation is usually not apparent until severe damages have incurred. They live in dark, humid and protected environment, which make them so hard to find – until it’s too late.
As termites devour their way through wood from the inside, it can be rather challenging to detect a termite infestation but there are some tell-tale signs that indicate their presence.
Here are a few common signs of termites that you might see (or hear) around your home or business premises:
- Mud tubes on wall – Subterranean termites build shelter tubes made of mud, dirt and debris in order to travel to and fro the food source without being seen. These tubes are about the size of a coin and are usually found on exterior and interior walls leading up to the entry points of the building.
- Sightings of termite swarmers (flying termites) or discarded wings – Usually the first sign of infestation noticed by property owners are the presence of swarmers or alates. Another common indication is the remnants of discarded wings on windowsills and floors.
- Papery or hollow sounding timber – Termites usually consume woods from the inside out, leaving a thin veneer of timber or paint. So when you knock or tap on an area that has termite damages, it will sound hollow or feel papery due to parts (or all) of the timber having been eaten away.
- Tight fitting door or hard to open window – As termites devour timber, their excrement or ‘mud’ creates a protective environment that traps heat and moisture. This causes timber to swell, making it harder to open or close the infested windows and doors.
- Tunnels in the wood – Also known as ‘galleries’ which are quite difficult to see from the outside.
- Termite droppings – After consuming wood, dry wood termites often leave behind brown-coloured and grainy faecal mounds. These faecal pellets are usually found beneath the infested wood.
Have you seen these signs?
Termites eat 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week. This means they are constantly consuming wood and damaging it. If left untreated, termites can weaken the wood within your home leading to costly damages.
