New bait cartridges in our pro kits now contain 33% more bait! Control more termites for longer periods of time.
The Advanced Termite Bait System is the next generation in termite baiting. It is one of the most widely installed bait systems by professional pest control companies today. Unlike older bait systems, the Advance Termite bait stations have larger vertical slots that allow for maximum wood-to-soil contact, creating the perfect opportunity for termite attack. Each station contains a wood base and a Termite Inspection Cartridge of enticing Puri-Cell cullulose matrix that is very appetizing to termites. When termites are found in the stations, the cartridge is replaced with a termite bait that wipes out the entire termite colony.
The Advance Termite Bait System Pro Kit contains:
- 10, 15 or 20 Termite Monitoring Stations that each contain a wood base and a termite inspection cartridge. These stations are to be placed 10-15 feet apart around your home. Larger homes will require more stations.
- 6 Termite Bait Cartridges for use when termite activity is present in the stations.
- 1 Spider Access Tool for easy access to the bait stations.

How Advance Termite Bait System Kit Works
The Advanced Termite Bait System is the next generation in termite baiting. The termite bait station features vertical slots that allow for maximum wood-to-soil contact, creating the perfect opportunity for termite attack. Each station contains a Termite Monitoring Base with preferred wood that is appetizing to termites. Above this rests a second cellular source, the Termite Inspection Cartridge containing Puri-Cell matrix in a clear cartridge that makes inspection easy. A Quick-Lock cap eliminates keys and hinges. The Spider access tool allows a technician to open the stations easily while standing.
Stations should be checked quarterly by removing the Quick-Lock Cap (using the included Spider Tool) and the Termite Inspection Cartridge. If termite activity is observed in one or more stations, the Termite Inspection Cartridge in those stations is replaced with a Termite Bait Cartridge containing the active ingredient Diflubenzuron. Diflubenzuron acts slowly enough for termites to spread it throughout the colony, resulting in colony elimination. The Advance Termite Bait System Kit allows for accurate monitoring and localized treatment before termites reach the structure.
Install around the perimeter of homes and commercial buildings. Stations are placed in the ground (usually with a post hole digger or shovel) every 10 feet around the structure. The stations will attract termites before they ever reach the structure, allowing you to bait, eventually killing the termites. Monitor the stations on a quarterly basis. If termite activity is present, replace the Inspection Cartridge with the Termite Bait Cartridge.
The Advance Termite Bait System Kit should be used for prevention. Installing bait stations alone will not treat termites that have already infested a structure. If used in conjunction with a liquid termite treatment (See Subterranean Termite Treatment Guide), use only non-repellent termiticides such as Termidor SC.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Termite Bait Cartridges - Diflubenzuron 0.25%
*Always read the product label completely before use.
- Install Advance Bait Stations (including the wood base and termite monitoring cartridge) into the ground every 10-20 feet around the perimeter of the structure. Stations should be placed 2-4 feet away from the foundation, but not directly under the drip line from the roof of the structure. To dig holes for the stations, use a 2 ¾ in. hand or electric auger or post hole digger. The cavity for each station should extend 2 to 4 in. below the stations’ housing to allow excess moisture to drain.
- Monitor stations every 90 days for termite activity. Use the included Spider Tool to open each station. A cotter pin hand tool or small pliers make removal of the cartridges easy.
- If termite activity is present, replace the Termite Inspection Cartridge with a Termite Bait Cartridge. (Be sure to remove the plastic wrapper from the TBC before placing inside the station.)
- Inspect active bait stations every 90 days to see if termite activity has stopped. When activity stops, replace the Termite Bait Cartridge with a Termite Inspection Cartridge. Repeat process as needed.
- Replace the wood bases and Termite Inspection Cartridges every 12 months for best results. Wood that is soggy or moldy should be replaced as soon as possible.

By Irv on 09/15/2008
Seven weeks later, September 11, 2008; Of the 14 stations that I installed, 6 were hit with termites. Four monitoring cartridges were entirely consumed; 90% of one was gone, and 50% of the fifth. 6 bait cartridges were installed. I was skeptical, at first. But, the Advance Termite Bait System really works.

Advance Termite Bait Station
By Jim in Dayton, Ohio on 05/09/2010
Very happy with the system; Have used a different system in the past and when I compared the advance system to it; it was superior in every way. Very easy to install. I thought I was going to have to use an auger but first tried with a post hole digger and that worked fine. Installed 14 stations in 50 minutes..... very easy!

As easy as it looks
By Bruce in Lake Mary, Fl on 06/27/2010
I had a company install and monitor stations for several years, it was expensive. I decided to do it myself. It was as easy as the video shows, the post hole digger is perfect for the job. These stations are wider and seem of better quality and design than those used by the commercial company whose little lids would get lose and get sucked up into the lawn mower.

Many advantages to using this product
By Irv on 07/10/2008
I did extensive research on baiting systems and settled in on the Advance Termite Bait System, based on its many advantages. DoMyOwnPestControl is great. The stuff was shipped in one or two days. Fortunately, UPS Ground delivers to me from the Atlanta area within the next day of shipping. I would definitely buy from this web site again.

Advance Termite Bait system - Easy Installation
By Jerry in Cimarron, KS on 03/24/2011
I recently purchased the Pro-Kit Bait system with 15 stations. I also found a 2-1/2" auger bit which I used to drill the holes for the bait stations. The installation was easy and the folks that prepare these stations have them all ready to install. I couldn't ask for a better product. Complete instructions are easy to follow as well.

The previuos owner of my home had been using a service to maintain these traps. They came by a few times after we moved in, and then the contract expired. They sent me a letter asking me to extend the contract, so I started investigating doing it myself. I'm glad I did. Most of the traps had mud in the bottom instead of wood, and the monitors were 1/2 full or less. Glad I decided to replace the broken ones, and replaced the monitors on all the traps. I made a "map" of my traps, and will continue to do monitoring them myself, and save money.

Now I Feel Better
By Damon in Versailles, KY on 08/02/2014
Had some problems with termites, so I treated all my entire home perimeter with Dominion 2L. I then installed these bait stations and have a few recommendations for other installers. I used a 2.75" Roto Planter to drill my holes for the bait stations. The size was perfect, and it cut my install time dramatically. It only cost around $22, but it really streamlines the installation, and I would recommend it to anyone installing these bait stations. It is much easier and quicker than using a post hole digger.

Great system at a good price
By Mike in Newnan, Ga on 05/25/2014
I had used the Sentricon system for years, installed and maintained by a local pest control company. We had built a new home and after 5 years, the original termite treatment had expired. I balked at the high cost of another Sentricon system and the ongoing maintenance costs. The Advanced Termite Bait System gives me everything from that system, at 10% of the cost.

Advance Termite Bait System
By Deborah in Salt Lake City, Utah on 10/17/2013
The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is because I have to give it some time to really evaluate! I bought a garden auger that goes on my drill to help make the holes, and the assembled product in the ground is very sturdy. Am very happy with how you check the system and having the bait on hand to use if necessary. It seems like a GREAT product. Instructions are very complete.

Quick/Easy Install & Use
By in Lawrence, KS on 07/17/2013
I had the Terminex guy come out and show me a similar system for my 1,500sft house for almost $1,700. With in 45 minutes I had 10 bait stations installed around my house for only a couple hundred dollars. A posthole digger from the hardware store makes for an easy install and once they are in the ground, it would be hard for any dog to dig them up. Very tough construction, but easy to open and check with the special tool. What a savings and looking forward to them doing the job protecting my house!

the price is up
By Steve in nashville on 03/08/2012
Advance seems to work, but that is no excuse for the price increases. That I shouldn't wish termites to eat my home appears to require that I permit them to eat my wallet. Some option. Keep it up, Advance, and back to Orkin I go.

Advance Termite Bait Station -Pro Kit
By Nolan in Prattville, Aabama on 07/29/2011
I checked online and found several companies offering self-help termite bait staion kits. For the most part, all the companies were pretty much in the same price range. I found that "Do My Own Pest Control" was the only website that had a how-to video for installation and product info with easy to follow instructions and no confusing double talk like you get from pest control companies. My concern was how often to check the stations and how far apart they shoud be placed. Everything was answered in the video. Termites hit one station within the first 30 days and another a week later. Changing the bait cartridges was a breeze.

Advance Termite Bait System
By John in Missouri on 11/03/2010
I purchased the Advance Termite Stations because of the online video explaining how to install and monitor the stations. I read later that the the poison effects only the younger termite population and it could take years to kill a colony. Because of this I had Orkin do a liquid treatment which is immediate and last 10 to 15 years and will continue to use the bait stations. We looked for termites and found none and unfortunately found fresh powder post beetle holes. Firewood is not worth the trouble!

QWhy can't I just place the bait in the station and not use the advanced termite inspection and the advanced
Why can't I just place the bait in the station and not use the advanced termite inspection and the advanced termite monitoring base?
AThe answer is a little involved, but basically it is scientifically proven and required that all baiting systems start out with monitoring stations. Every baiting system on the professional market is that way for a reason. The reason is because you want the termite colony to infest the station and think that the normal wood inside and normal monitoring cartridge is a valid food source. They will hit it hard because no termites will be dying at first. Once they have eaten on the wood and monitoring cartridge for a little while and you replace it with the bait, they will still think it is normal wood and cartridge and injest the bait much faster, ensuring the colony is eliminated. It has been scientifically proven that if you start out with bait only, and the termite colony starts dying right after eating it, they will leave the station and move on before enough termites have eaten it to kill the colony. Since the point of the baiting system is to eradicate a whole colony, it is very important enough of them eat the bait or it will not work. The only way to ensure this is to get them hooked on the normal wood and monitoring cartridge first.
QUnder customer reviews John stated that these bait stations only target the young termites of a colony.
Is there any truth to this statement, and if so on average how long does your bait station take to actually take to kill the entire colony? Thank You, A potential Buyer
AJohn is mistaken. Termite baiting systems will only effect the worker termites of a colony, the most important ones whose job it is to find food. The stations target any termite, young or old, that is a worker and finds the food for the colony. Baiting systems work by killing the worker termites which provide food for the colony. If the worker termites die, then the colony crashes. This can take a few months up to a year depending on the size of the colony and other factors.
QWhen should you replace the wood-base in the Advance Termite Bait Station? When do you need to clean out the whole station?
AYou should clean out all of the Advance Termite Bait Stations completely and replace the wood base at least every 12 months, or once a year. Depending on where you live and the climate and amount of rain, you may need to replace the wood base more often. If the wood bases become very soggy and moldy then you should replace them.
QCan you put two Advance Termite Bait Stations at the same location?
If you have activity actually on your foundation or in a specific location, would it be useful to put two Advance Termite Bait Stations together at the location? Also, is there any other liquid spray products that can be used along with the stations?
A You do not want to place two Advance Termite Bait Stations next to each other, if you have activity. The label does not permit this, and also you could possibly disturb the colonies entry trails into the other station by digging into the ground. Termidor SC is the only liquid that you would want to use near a termite bait station, but you can only place Termidor SC next to the foundation of the structure.

QWhat is the annual operating cost for a 15 stations of Advance Termite Bait System?
Are there any additional start-up costs associated for 15 holders and bait station system? What is needed to be replaced annually and what would be the current annual cost if you had termite activity in 8 of the 15 bait stations.
AEvery 12-24 months you will need to replace the wood base (TMB) which at the current market price will be $43.50 for all 15 stations and the Termite Inspection Cartridge (TIC) which at the current market price is $58.90 for a bag of 25. When activity is found and you must use the Termite Bait Cartridge (TBC) you can purchase the bait in a box of 6 baits for $95.76 at the current market price.

QI have fruit trees and bushes on my back yard. How far should I place them away from my apart from my trees?
In other words, would the system destroy my organic garden?
AThe Advance Termite Bait System Kit should not be placed around the your garden. It should be placed outside the drip line of the tree so that you do not damage the roots.
10/21/2014 Deborah from Kerrville, Tex
Qi just purchased the 20-kit. does it include the wood base?
AYes, each station contains a Termite Monitoring Base with preferred wood that is appetizing to termites. Above this rests a second cellular source, the Termite Inspection Cartridge containing Puri-Cell matrix in a clear cartridge that makes inspection easy.
04/22/2014 Bobby from Graham, North Carolina
QDo you use the same bait system as Terminix?
I have an existing system/plan with Terminix but was thinking of cancelling my service, but I don't want to have to have to replace everything. I'm not sure if they will take out the bait stations when I cancel.
AMany professional companies use different baiting systems and many will remove the stations upon cancellation of service. We are unsure which system you currently have. We carry the Advance Termite Bait System. The wood base, inspection cartridge, bait cartridge and tool only fit this specific system. Please contact us if you need additional information. We are always happy to help!

QHow long is the Advance Termite Bait good for?
If I dont need to use the bait, will it expire?
AThe shelf life that the bait has been tested to is 5 years on the shelf in a room temperature environment stored out of direct sunlight. The bait could be good longer than this if unopened and unused but 5 years is all that has been tested.

QIf I had found termites in my back yard, away from my house, will the baiting system work?
If I were to plant one of these guys right on top of where I found their nest two years ago, would that be the best way to go about killing the colony? (I would also be installing these at 12' intervals around the house)
AThere is no way to know for sure if that same colony would find the station. However, any wood that is left in the ground will eventually most likely have termites in it....so eventually a termite colony would find it. There are always termites around in the ground, but our main concern is protecting your home which is why installing the baiting system around your home should be your first goal.

QHow does Advance compare with the Sentricon system?
Which one is more effective? Which one has been on the market longer? Is there any research confirming Advance's effectiveness?
AThe Advance Termite Bait System has been on the market for many years though we do not know how long exactly. The Advance System is probably more widely used than the Sentricon system and is comparable to the Sentricon System. You can definitely research the Advance Bait system's efficacy just by searching it online or going directly to the manufacturers website. You can find more information on the product by searching the active ingredient Diflubenzuron on the internet. You can also find a lot of information by reading the Installation guide, Product Label and Supplemental Label.

QHow far apart should the termite baiting stations be placed around the house?
Or to put it another way, how do I know how many units I need to order?
AFor best results, the termite bait stations should be placed 10 feet apart around the house. The instructions say they can be placed as far as 20 feet apart, but most termite companies place them 10 feet apart which is the recommended distance in the pest control industry.

QAdvance termite bait system and flood irrigation?
I'm leaning towards purchasing Advance Termite Bait System, but I get flood irrigation twice a month 10 months out of the year. I was wondering if you know if this product can work with flood irrigation?
AIf you mean can the system be in standing water, the answer is yes. It will not harm the plastic station. However, the wood inside can get moldy and would probably need to be replaced. If the stations are full of water or the wood has too much mold on it, termites will not want to enter the stations. Typically the wood needs to be replaced at least once a year, but in your case you may need to do it twice a year.
QWhat is the EPA number on Advance Termite Bait System?
AOnly one component of Advance termite Bait System has an EPA registration number, there is not one number for the whole kit. The Advance Termite Bait Cartridge EPA Registration # 499-488, The Advance Termite Inspection cartridge is not regulated and does not require an EPA reg number. You can always find the EPA number on the MSDS which is always available on our website on the Product Label and MSDS page.
QIf a home is already infested with termites, will installing the bait system get rid of them?
ANo, the baiting system is a preventative treatment and will only intercept new termite colonies coming towards your home. The baiting system has wood inside it that is what the termites are looking for. If a termite colony is inside your house and has already found wood, then they have no reason to leave the house to look for more food. The only reliable way to get termites out of your home is to treat directly with a liquid application. This is explained in our "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article on our website.
