These nests are usually located inside wooden furnitures where these insects borrow in so as to establish their nests that would later become their feeding and residence centres.

Often locating these insects may be extremely difficult as it may turn out to be the case that these insects often come out for feeding on water and other food sources only at night. However in this case there are other methods to lure them out of their nests. One such method is the use of baits. Baits are strategically placed food and other consumable material that attract insects. The smell of the food items will draw the insects towards it. After the insects have come to the bait and have started to return back to their nests with their food, they may be tracked and traced. Such tracking and tracing helps to identify the nesting ground of the insects.
