Ok, first off, Termite Baiting is for Subterreanean (ground) termites, not drywood termites. So the Smartdisk system would not work - period.
Tent fumigation is generally the recommended treatment for drywood termites, but is also the most costly, and the most disruptive.
If you know where the drywood termites are, and you absolutely have to locate "kickout holes" etc, then you can do a "spot treatment with Termidor Foam.
Basically, you have to drill into the kickout holes, and try to drill into the termite infested galleries and inject Termidor Foam into them. You may have to drill lots of holes, maybe even drill the wall many times (hundreds of holes). Sometimes it may look like swiss cheese, but what is easier, doing this and spending half a day and drinking coffee while you do it, or moving out of your home?
Termidor Dry is also a good choice if you cannot use the foam for some reason.
We have a complete section on Drywood Termites here.
I think that Termidor foam has the potential to do a very good job of controlling drywood termites if used in the areas where they are active. At the very least, it will provide a long term protection in the areas used, whereas, Vikane or tent fumigation has no long term protection once the tarps come off the house.
