Do it right
By Gene on April 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 on September 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 on February 6, 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.

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.
