Advance Termite Monitoring Base (TMB) is a wood base placed in the bottom of each monitoring station. The base is composed of 63 grams of preferred wood with horizontal grooves allowing for easier access by termites and maximum wood to soil contact.
Purchasing the 5-pack of this product will give you five complete wood bases for use in five Advance Termite Bait Stations (sold separately).
The Advance Termite Monitoring Base is for use only in Advance Termite Bait Stations. The wooden bases are a preferred wood for subterranean termites and attract them to the stations for easy monitoring and baiting.

Use a flathead screwdriver or Advance Spider Tool to remove the black cap from Advance Stations. Remove the Termite Inspection Cartridge or Termite Bait Cartridge (using a cotter pin hand tool is helpful). Remove old or damaged Termite Monitoring Base, then replace with fresh wood base (two halves form a complete base for each station). Re-insert or replace Monitoring or Bait Cartridge as appropriate, then replace black cap.
Wooden Termite Monitoring Bases should be replaced once a year or as needed if spongy, waterlogged, or moldy.
Each 5-pack contains five complete Termite Monitoring Bases (10 pieces total).

Do it right
By Gene in Lahoma, OK on 04/29/2011
I have used this system for a few years. It should not take that long but I failed to use it as described. Last year I did it right and it works just great. Moral: Follow the instructions and it will kill the whole den.

Great company to Order from
By Mona in Atlanta GA on 09/15/2012
I decided to save some money by doing my own termite inspection. I went around and inserted a new base and cartridge. I will check them quarterly like the termite services do. I have had the service for three years and our home is brand new so we have not had any activity in the community so far.

Termite Monitoring Base
By James in Alabama on 02/06/2013
So far performed as expected. Excellent Service. Emailed technical service multiple times on use and performance of prior wood bases in the ground as to color, condition and replacement. Excellent response times with good information as to what action to pursue.

By Christopher in NY on 05/22/2014
I ordered ten 5 packs of monitoring bases several weeks ago. My order arrived quickly and in good shape. The base is a 2 part unit and arrived loose in bottom of a box. While I installed the bases in my existing bait stations it quickly became apparent that I only received a total of 50 pieces (remember each base is comprised of 2 pieces). When I reviewed this product and detailed my how I felt cheated I was quickly contacted by the company. They informed me that there must have been a error and immediately reshipped my order. Do My Own Pest Control is a great company that stands by its products!!!! I will recommend them to all my friend

DIY bait station refresh: cartridges and bases
By in Alachua, FL on 06/28/2013
Well, using the components for the Advance bait stations, I can do monitoring for 3 years for half of the cost of paying the pest control guy for one year's monitoring, and it's the same stuff. The math is pretty compelling. My (new to me) house was in foreclosure for a year, so the station bases and cartridges needed replacement. There is evidence of activity. I'll have to go back after 3 months and see about where the rascals are now, and bait them. I'll have to report back in a year or two with the results: bottom line being no structure damage to the house... TBD .

Advance Termite Monitoring Base (5 pack)
By William in Edwardsville, IL on 10/11/2016
Part of a successful bait station program is having the right products in it. This is the recommended monitoring base. My termite professional seemed to think it wasn't necessary. I disagreed and decided to do it myself.

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.

QWhen is it necessary to replace the Monitoring Base for an existing bait system?
Is there a need to replace the monitoring base at all or just always the cartridge is enough?
AYou should replace the wood monitoring base whenever it becomes moldy or starts to severely degrade. Most folks find they end up replacing the wood once every 12-18 months.

Q2 years ago a professional (now out of business) installed bait stations on my property.
I want to continue on my own. I need a cap remover, and about 6 new bait stations to replace ones that were inadvertently destroyed. Can you suggest my most economical way to proceed.

QHow long will the Advance Termite Monitoring Base (TMB) last if stored in a cool dry place prior to installation?
Just trying to get an idea on how many to order as I don't want them going "bad" in storage.
A The Advance Termite Monitoring Bases do not have a shelf life. They should be kept in an area where moisture will not come in contact with them so that they do not mold.
