systems are designed to fool the worker termites into bringing the poisoned bait, which typically consists of poisoned cellulose, back to the termite colony. Cellulose is the source of the nutrients in wood that termites need to survive. Once the worker termites
identify the source the number of workers who begin transporting the bait back to the colony quickly multiples; ultimately leading to the extermination of the entire colony. This process is what makes the termite baiting systems extremely effective for the treatment and prevention of the spread of subterranean termites.
