Mold on the Advance Termite Bait Station

Will mold in the bait station, either on the wood or the cartridge, repel termites?


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
•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

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
