Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas. You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, you’re at high risk for developing lung cancer. Some scientific studies of radon exposure indicate that children may be more sensitive to radon. This may be due to their higher respiration rate and their rapidly dividing cells, which may be more vulnerable to radiation damage.
Termite baits take advantage of the termite’s natural tendencies. Termites live in close contact with one another in colonies in underground nests. Termite baits use slow working poisons. The idea is that some of the termites pick up the bait, return it to the nest and spread it round, thus eliminating all the termites in the entire nest.

Termite bait stations can be particularly effective in spring when foraging is most prevalent. Place bait traps close together in areas of high termite infestation. If you are unsure of where the nest is, the safest option is to ensure that the termite bait stations

The advantages of baits is that they can attack the whole nest even if you are not sure of its location. They are easy to use. They are also less toxic – meaning you don’t have to worry about effects on pets, other wildlife, children etc. The downside is that they are not as effective as other methods. This method will kill many termites. However, the surviving termites will simple move to a new area and start to breed and build a new nest some where else – so the problem simply springs up somewhere else.

It has been found that termites feed more readily on bait that is left above ground. This is only logical since termites naturally feed on dead wood and branches that have fallen from trees and are, therefore, above ground. The most effective bait stations, such as Advance, take advantage of this. Rather than being completely buried underground, they are partially buried with the top exposed. This attracts the termites more readily and is a much more efficient method of termite extermination.
