Q&A Home

John from San Antonio, Texas writes,

I bought 12 TBS baits, and used only 6. What is the shelf life of the baits?

The TBS traps I replaced had 6 baits and 15 monitors. I bought 12 baits with my order. How long will the unused baits be effective? Should I return them and order them later if I need to replace them?


Since the Advance Termite Bait Cartridge come individually vacuum sealed as long as they remain sealed, they will be effective for up to 5 years on the shelf.
