Don’t store traps all winter in a location as pictured in the previous post. The traps were all lined up on the concrete floor with big cracks in it. Termites were in several of the boxes after only being there for 2 weeks. I didn’t spray anything because I want bees in those boxes next Spring. They weren’t established and didn’t damage anything, but they were in there snooping around.
Below are some pictures of lumber left in the chicken coup on our new farm. The concrete floor has cracks in it and termites came up through the floor. You can see the results. Once the traps are cleaned up they are put in a second story of the granary. They will freeze this winter and most of the straggling critters will be eliminated.
Soon we will have to start thinking about Equipment Storage…….
Here are some pictures….
