How to Use Bait Plate Stations (Video)
BAIT IS NOT INCLUDED (See Ant Bait , Roach Bait).
Bait Stations are low-profile, economic and easy-to-use plastic stations that hold gel, liquid and granular baits for ants, roaches and other crawling insects. The stations keep sticky gels and granular baits in a contained space that is off of counter tops and other surfaces, but allows access to the bait for ants and other insects. By using bait plate stations you can offer 2 different baits at one time in the same locations giving finicky insects an option to choose the bait they prefer. Bait plate stations also work to keep bait fresh for a longer period of time thereby saving you money and time because you do not have to change the bait as often.
Bait Plate Stations:
- Transparent plastic-allows you to see if there is activity in the station or if the bait needs to be replenished
- Two sided bottom tray allows the use of two different types of bait at one time in one place-liquid or gel on one side, granule on the other.
- Removable tab allows for entrance of bigger insects like large roaches
- Can be placed flat or tacked on walls -put the bait where you need it
- Keeps bait fresh for longer periods of time
- Reusable-clean and reuse
The BaitPlate Station can be used for liquid, gel or granular baits for all crawling insects.
The halves of the station will need to be snapped together. Snap each of the 4 corners securely. If using liquid bait, be sure that the male channel on the top and female channel on the bottom are completely mated together with no air gaps, paying particular attention to the corners, otherwise it may leak.
For baiting ants and German roaches, the little tab on the top should be snapped down into the hole.
For baiting American roaches or other larger insects, open the tab or remove it altogether by tearing it off at the perforation.
To secure the station, use the hole provided or use the sticky dot. Press the dot (with the release paper still on) onto the bottom of the station on the flat part where the hole is and then peel off the release paper and stick down the station.
The BaitPlate can be placed flat or vertically on a wall. If using liquid bait on a wall, a tack may provide more security than just the sticky dot.

Add these to your order!
By Ellen in Chicago, IL on 05/29/2010
I wasn't going to get these bait stations, "I don't need them", I thought. I threw them in the order at the last minute. Boy was I glad!!! A neat little accessory that kept the bait and gel all together. Made it easy to set-up and clean up. Well worth it!! Get the bait plate stations and make your life easy and safe.

Safe to Use
By Pat in Eugene, Oregon on 07/02/2010
These are inexpensive and easy to use. I partially filled them and put them by the cat dish. Within two days the ants were gone. And there was no worry of the cat stepping on it or poison getting in her food. Note: I partially fill them in case someone steps on it so it doesn't squeeze out the end.

Bait Plate Stations
By Donna in Zionsville Pa. on 11/07/2010
The bait plate stations are very cheap quality at a high cost. I was desperate and the manufacturer knows that. A very inferior product!

A little flimsy...
By Pierre in Pembroke Pines on 09/13/2011
But did the job. took me a few minutes to figure out how to keep the gel on one side, the granules on the other, and keep the top secure.
Other critters like the bait inside
By Linda in Loveland, CO on 09/26/2016
I had a bait station disappear and another, the top was ripped off and the bait cleaned out. Must be some other critters who like the bait. I reloaded new bait traps and this time put a partial brick on top to hold them in place. I do not believe it is mice because the one in my storage shed is intact. It was 2 of the 3 I placed outside. Just hope the ants find them and it takes card of them. Easy to load and use.
Easy to use
By Psc in Denver, CO on 09/03/2016
The bait stations are easily used. They snap together easily after baiting them.
Bait Station is a Winner !
By Fred in Culpeper, VA on 08/22/2016
Easy to set up with both Gel and Granular baits. Well designed, thin is form and easy to place where needed. I would suspect it can be used over and over again due to its sturdy materials.
Get these things in bulk.
By Mary in Van Nuys CA on 07/21/2016
Basically, one tube of Advion or MaxForce takes 12 of these. So order big!
Pricey for the quality
By Hooper in Cleveland on 07/06/2016
The bait stations work but even at the most bulk purchasing option, .50 each is ridiculous. These things cost a fraction of a cent to make. Also they have been made without anti-static, which means your dry baits will cling to the top of the trap and "crawl" to the other side if you are using a gel in compartment two. The two sides are not separated with the lid, there is a gap, allowing the baits to get mixed up which makes it difficult to determine what your ants are feeding on in combined stations. In a pinch they work fine but I'll probably try to explore other options for future use.
They work, just not how I had hoped
By Mitchell in San Jose, CA on 06/13/2016
The plates worked, as in I eventually saw dead roaches about the treated areas. And I didn't have the concrete stains the liquid poison I used was known for leaving. However, I got these so stray cats in the area were not in danger of also ingesting the liquid roach poison. The cats had opened them all. I thankfully have not come across any sick or dead cats, but yeah. I've resorted to taping them closed.
Good concept, but not what I expected
By Rich in Vero Beach, Florida on 06/01/2016
Maybe I got a bad batch ... I thought the bait station would keep the granules separate from the gel. I just filled 4 of them and the divider did not keep the granules in their compartment. sooo the two baits are mixed together. A couple of the station snapped together and gave the impression there was a very good seal. The other two, I pressed with considerable force, but did not get a "snap" sound. I am now thinking of building something of my own from empty plastic bottles. Note: No complaints about the Maxforce Carpenter ant gel. I have used it in the past and it is effective. I am trying out the granular bait for the first time.

QCan I melt down this roach gel , add Vaseline to keep it moist and add roach dust and maybe some sugar?
The roach gel gets rock hard and ineffective quick. It takes up space because I need to put down another application on top of the old gel bait.
AHeating up the roach gel to the melting point could render it ineffective as the active ingredient is liable to breakdown. Adding roach dust or vaseline will most likely contaminate the bait and make it unattractive to the roaches. You can place the roach bait gel into reusable bait plate stations to stop the gel from drying out and to avoid having to place the product directly on surfaces where it would be hard to remove. Many people choose to place the gel bait on small pieces of plastic wrap or foil to avoid placing it directly on surfaces where the gel may be hard to remove.
QI would like the measurements (width x length) of the bait plate stations.
AThe measurements for the bait plate stations are as follows: 3.5"L x 2.5" W and they are about .5" thick when assembled.

QWhat's the space needed in between bait stations for outdoor use? Should I place them every 10-20 feet apart?
A There is not a specific amount of feet in between stations for indoor or outdoor baiting. Below are some helpful baiting tips. How to Apply Bait Indoors: Apply small placements in cracks and crevices, especially where ants are seen foraging or entering the structure. Inspect gel placement and reapply as needed. For optimum success, follow the directions printed on the individual product label.

QDo you put the Advance 375A Granules or the Maxforce FC Ant Gel in the bait plate stations?
We have put gel in one side and granules in the other. We have lots of dead ones but then they reappear in another area. We have an INVASION!!!!
A We recommend placing either the Advance 375A Granules or the Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel in the bait plate stations. You can also put both (one on each side of the tray) baits in the stations at the same time.

QDo Bait Plate Stations work with carpenter ants?
Another part of your site says they don't like to take bait from some types of stations.
AYes, carpenter ants will go into the bait stations to take bait out. These cartidges do come empty so you will need to put bait inside of them. We would recommend using the Complete Ant Kit. It comes with a sugar and a protein bait for the ants to take back to the colony. It also comes with 12 bait stations. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

QAssembling the syringe. How do you attach the plunger? I got the ant kit and the instructions are confusing.
AYou would simply push the smaller end of the plunger into the open end of the syringe. Be sure to remove the cap from the tip of the syringe and push slowly to expel the bait from the syringe.

QCan i use the bait plate stations outside for Slugs/Snails?
Do you recommend using these bait stations filled with Niban to control Slugs/Snails? I'm considering using Niban as a slug/snail bait around my Hostas.
AThe Bait Plate Station when used with the lid on top are only large enough to accomodate an insect the size of an ant. The Niban Granular Bait is designed to be spread across the ground for the insects to find as they are foraging for food. It is a moisture resistant bait so it will hold up to the outdoor elements (up to 4 inches of rain) longer than an average bait granule. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
