  Abstract  
  Ants and subterranean termites are economically important insect pests in the urban environment. Managing populations of these pests through bait-toxicant control tactics is a viable option that requires a thorough understanding of their biology. The terminology used in describing a bait-toxicant control strategy must accurately reflect the intent of the strategy within the context of what is known about the biology of the pest. This article discusses selected aspects of the biology of both ants and subterranean termites as a platform for discussion of consistent use of terminology concerning development and implementation of effective bait control programs aimed at population management of these pests.
