Termite eradication

Asked November 22, 2015, 11:37 AM EST

My condo Association has had termites on and off for 40 years. Our original contract in the 80's was for Chloradane drilled into all buildings and units. This held us for years. Of course this chemical is nolonger legal to use. Our company is offering a bait system. they put bait in some containers placing them under the soil creating an exterior barricade so that the termites will eat then bring it back to the colony and hopefully poisons the colony. Is this a practical solution and an effective one for treating fresh colonies on our grounds?
