Advance Termite Bait Station
By Judge on October 30, 2011
I had to purchase an individual bait station because I ran short when installing a system around my home. The item was exactly what I needed and the price including shipping was the best I found. The item was shipped very quickly and it arrived prior to what I anticipated. Great company with excellent price...

Cyper-WP and Advance Termite Bait Kit
By James on October 2, 2012
Excellent products. Both products were easy to apply and/or install and so far have performed as advertised. Haven't checked the termite bait stations yet but installation was simple. Customer assistance is prompt and friendly, either by phone or online request. I can personally recall multiple request, each greeted with friendly and courteous helpful information. The Cyper-WP product is excellent and quickly cleaned up an otherwise out of control basement. Made several purchases and plan to make more in the future of at least these two products.

QCan I replace the wood in the station if termites are present?
I have seen some activity in one of my stations and can see mud tubes and termites in the station. The wood is black and molded looking. Can I/should I change this or just install the bait and leave the wood be?
AIf there are termites in the station and you have replaced the monitoring cartridge with the bait cartridge, you should not replace the wood yet. The termites are not interested in the wood right now, they are most likely trying to get to the cellulose in the bait cartridge. If you replace the wood you could alarm the termite colony and cause them to leave the station. Wait until activity has ceased from them eating the bait cartridge, and then replace the wood.

QHow to take care of termites in the attic?
After installing some of these stations in ground, it was observed that there is termite activity in attic in other end of house. Ground area under that part of attic is all concrete (driveway and sidewalk). If I place some of these stations in attic will it work, or it works when installed in ground only?
AThe advance termite bait station will not work above ground. It is meant for and will only work when installed into the ground as the instructions recommend. For treating termites in an attic space, Bora-Care is the go to product. Bora-Care is a wood treatment product that you can apply directly on the wood in the attic. Bora-Care can be applied to any wood that is not painted, stained, or sealed. Bora-Care will penetrate directly into the wood and kill the termites in the wood and also protect it long term. Your only option in an attic space is to treat the termites directly.

QDo the monitoring stations contain pesticides?
I would like to monitor my house for termite activity but only treat with pesticides if there is actually a problem. I have two concerns: 1. We want to attract beneficial fauna like bees and frogs to the yard and these are very sensitive to chemicals. 2. We have edible plants around the house and I don't want these chemicals to get in our food. Of course if we had termites, the chemicals are better than termites, but as treatment for a potentially non-existent problem it seems a little harsh.
AThe monitoring stations only contact wood and a cellulose cartridge. The pesticides are only put into the stations if you find activity.

QHow do I monitor the Advance Termite Bait Stations for termite activity?
We have a pest control company that installed, I believe, the Advance Termite Bait Station system. It has a grey cylinder with a black top. We are thinking of not renewing our yearly contract of them checking the systems quarterly. First, how do I open the black top to access the unit. Second, how do I analyze what I see to know whether or not there is activity? Does the bait have to be replaced at various intervals? Also, if there is activity what do we do then?
A The lid on the Advance Termite Bait Station is removed with a Spider Access Tool. Please look at pictures 12 and 13 on page 4 of the Advance Termite Bait Station Guide. These pictures illustrate what it looks like when termites have started invading the bait station. Once an infestation has been identified, the plastic inspection cartridge would need to be changed to an Advance Termite Bait Cartridge. Both the wood monitoring base and the plastic inspection cartridge should be changed every 12 months and the wood should be changed more often if it becomes very soggy or moldy. Please watch our Advance Termite Bait Station video for some great tips for using the Advance Termite Bait Station System.

March 13, 2011Bob asked:
QWhat would I need for yearly replacement of the termite bait stations?
I have bait traps already around my property what do I need to do for the year. This is the first time I'm replacing bait traps, had a pro do it for years.
AYou would need the wooden Advance Termite Base and the Advance Termite Inspection Cartridge. It is important to make sure you have the Advance Termite Bait Station System before ordering these refills as there are many different brands of systems and parts from one brand will not fit stations of another brand.
November 20, 2010Lynne asked:
QHow do I replace termite bait cartridges in the Advance termite Bait Station?
AWe recommend you use the Advance Spider tool and twist the black cap off of the station. If you do not have one, you can use a large flat head screw driver placed behind the small black tab on the cap and twist the cap until both tabs are released and the cap can be removed. Once the cap is off, you can use either a small screw driver or a pair of needle nose pliers to lift the old cartridge out. Then you simply set the new cartridge in the station and put the cap back on.

QWhat is the effective radius of treatment for the Advance Termite Bait Station?
I have a large area that I wish to treat for subterranean termites, and I need to calculate how many I will need.
ATypically, Advance Termite Bait Stations will be placed within a foot or two of the structure every 10 feet all the way around the structure. We do have a great video on the installation of these stations on the Advance Termite Bait Stations page.

QHow do you place TBS in a concrete floor outside of your home? Or can you?
I live in NYC and houses here are surrounded by concrete floor and drive ways. Can I still use the TBS? Thanks
AThe Advance Termite Bait Stations are not really meant to be applied in concrete. However, it is possible, but it requires a very expensive drill and auger, and you have to make very large holes in the concrete. It is not recommended that a homeowner try his procedure. We recommend placing the stations on the other side of the concrete in the ground if it is not too far away from the house.
May 1, 2011Raymond asked:
QCan I place TBS around the house after I have treated the house with a non repellent termiticide?
I have treated the outside of the house with termiticide in the soil. Now I was wondering if I could use the TBS to monitor termites in the future? If so how long should I wait before I put TBS in the soil? Thanks
ASince baiting systems do not utilize a chemical, you can apply them right away. They work very well with non-repellent termiticides and so there is no issue with installing them now to add another line of defense to your termite protection.

QMold on the bait station
Will mold in the bait station, either on the wood or the cartridge, repel termites?
A Yes and No. It depends on what kind of mold it is. The company that makes the Advanced Termite Bait System has put out a training guide for quality assurance that addresses when you should replace the wood or cartridges based on what they look like and what color the mold or fungus is. From the guide: In general, replace the TIC if the tablets have: •Pink mold present Here is a link to the guide for you to read further: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/msds/advance-termite-bait-system-quality-assurance-brochure-opt.pdf
•Veins of pink run throughout the TIC
•Tablets appears to be slimy or glistening like gelatin
•It has been in the ground for 15 months
Do not replace TICs if the tablets:
•Appear to be swollen or enlarged
•Have black or green colored mold on their surfaces

November 16, 2012Daniel from Peoria, Il asked:
QDo the individual advance termite bait stations come with a spider tool or do I need to purchase one?
AOnly the Advance Termite Professional kits come with a spider tool included. Individual stations and boxes of 10 stations do not come with the tool. Sorry for any inconvenience!
February 19, 2013Daniel from Norman, Ok asked:
QThe bait in my Advance Termite system from 3 months ago seems to have not been touched - Do I leave it there?
Found activity in view cartridge three months ago. Looked in bait cartridge the other day and it looked like it had not been touched in the 3 months since. No termites to be found. Do I just leave the bait as it is or should I alter the bait or wood or move the monitor? What could have spooked off the termites? P.S. I like ordering from your company. The orders are fast and you have a great selection of products.
AThank you for your comments about our company and our fast shipping. There are many reasons why termites may have left the station. A natural predator, like an ant colony, could have chased them off. A drastic weather change could have an affect on the colony, or any number of other reasons. This is common. Of course, it could be that the colony was small and they ate enough bait to kill the colony or kill enough of them that they ceased feeding. Unfortunately we don't know for sure the reason. Either way, your plan of action now is the same no matter what happened. Anytime you had termites in a station and placed the bait cartridge in the station, you should remove the bait once the termite activity is gone and go back to the monitoring cartridge. It is usually best to replace the wood and start over in that station with a new monitoring cartridge.
