Q&A Home

Ken from Derwood, Maryland writes,

I want to do my own termite control but only if I will save money.

I now pay $30 a month for 6 Advance monitors, checked quarterly, and free service if termites are found. I see on your website the monitors for $17.95, a "spider" for $25, gloves for $12.95, 5 (not 6) inspection cartridges for $19.50, and 6 bait cartridges for $96.94. Would I need anything else? If the bait cartridges last just 6 months, I would LOSE MONEY by doing the work myself. Is this correct? Please comment.


The Advance Termite bait stations should be replaced every year. If you already have the grey station, the only things you will need to buy would be the Advance Termite Monitoring Bases, which come in a pack of 5 and Advance Termite Inspection Cartridges (packs of 5 as well). The Advance Bait Cartridges last for 90 days and are only used if there is termite activity present. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
