The Advance Termite Bait Station is manufactured by BASF Chemical Company – a renowned global company specializing in various pest control products in the market. This is a termite detection system designed to be installed outdoors. It does not contain any dangerous chemicals that could harm your plants and soil. It uses wood baits and a cellular matrix for the detection of termites.
Each pack contains ten termite bait stations that need to be placed at a distance of 10 feet for maximum efficiency. Large homes will require more bait stations to provide adequate termite prevention. The Advance Termite Monitor Station includes a wood food source and an inspection cartridge for attracting and detecting subterranean termites. Termites move upward into the Termite inspection cartridge, where they feed until the cartridge is replaced with the Termite bait cartridge, providing ultra-low disturbance functionality.

You can use an auger, shovel, or post-hole digger to dig holes where the bait station is located. To open the bait cover, you will need a spider specialty tool, and a cotter pin tool will be required to remove the termite inspection or bait cartridge.
How to Use
This advanced bait system comes with a simple installation and can be done simply with a four-inch auger, a post-hole digger, or a regular shovel to maximize soil contact. Dig a hole at least 6 to 7 inches deep and place the wooden base and the termite inspection cartridge filled the bait station with the head of the station flush with the ground. Inspect for termite activity at each station every three months. If evidence of termite activity is present, replace the termite inspection cartridge with the termite bait cartridge and replace the bait cartridge until the termite activity is no longer apparent. Check the bait cartridge every 60 days and continue replacing the bait cartridge until the termite activity is no longer evident.
Where to Use
You can use advance Termite Bait Monitoring Stations for any residential or building subject to termite presence. Bait stations should be placed in the ground 10 to 20 feet away. This can be either inside or outside the gutter line or at least two to three feet from the walls of your home.
When to Use
The product should be placed immediately around the house, preferably in moist soil. Once the foraging termites smell cellulose, they will feed into the trapping unit, where the active termiticide will kill them within hours.

Note that this is not appropriate for termite infestations inside the house. Other termite treatments or liquid treatments like insecticides are supposed to do that. This is intended for protection against termites from entering your entire home perimeter or vicinity using bait stations and should not be used as sole protection against termites. For larger homes, you may need to purchase more packs for effective protection from termites.
How do Advance Termite Bait Stations cope with extreme weather like rain and snowstorms?
These termite bait systems are not affected by weather conditions and work pretty well even after rain.
What does the monitoring cartridge that comes with them do compared to the bait you have to buy separately?
The cartridges that come with the bait stations are designed to attract and detect the presence of termites in the area. Once the termites have been confirmed, you can use poison bait that the termites take back to their colony.
Does this kit contain all I need to set up and use the system?
The termite stations contain only inspection cartridges and wood monitoring blocks to detect the activity of termites. You must order lethal termite bait cartridges separately.
How many square feet does one station cover?
You need one station every ten linear feet around the perimeter of your house. It’s best to place them close to moist areas and any existing wood structures such as deck posts.
It can cost a lot to hire a pest control company, and you may need to hire pest control firms for more than one job, depending on the size of the infestation your home may have. Suppose you are not looking for an alternative to the extermination of future termite infestations directly by putting poison in your soil. Still, you want a professional grade termite detection system. In that case, we recommend the Advance Termite Bait System.
The Advance Termite Bait Stations is designed to be enclosed in your yard and loaded with irresistible wood bait. The bait attracts the termites that are clustered inside the trap. Once the termite monitoring base has attracted the termites, the bait is replaced by a cylinder of poison tablets, which the termites then take back to their nest, thus destroying the entire infestation.
What is so remarkable about this termite baiting system is that you only need to replace the bait with a toxic termite poison cartridge upon signs of termites, eliminating wasteful poisons. Liquid treatments and other termite treatments can also supplement it. Another useful feature of termite bait systems is that it gets deep into the soil, minimizing the station’s visibility and disturbance. Many customers like this bait station because it contains a large amount of bait that is enough to kill the entire termite nest.
