We have a large old wood deck 8" above dirt, which ends 12" from house.Will build the trench BUT should I also place the bait systems into the deck in case they also live under the deck?
If you do not have access to treat right against the foundation under the deck with the trenching method, then placing bait stations underneath it is better than doing nothing at all and will help you monitor activity in that area. If you have access to do a trench unde the deck then the stations would not be required and it would only be for extra protection. Be sure to trench around any piers that support the deck as well to protect termite damage there.
