PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: A Termite Bait Station that includes the station, Wood Base Attractant and Inspection Cartridge (another attractant).
These stations include the station, a wood base which sits at the bottom of the station and the Inspection Cartridge which sits on top of the wood base inside the station. The wood base may be the first place termites go once inside the station but the Inspection Cartridge is made of cellulose material which termites cannot resist and will quickly become their main target once they find it.
*** NOTE THAT THESE STATIONS ARE ONLY MONITORS. ONCE ACTIVITY IS FOUND, INSPECTION CARTRIDGES SHOULD BE REMOVED AND REPLACED WITH BAIT CARTRIDGES.
WHERE TO USE IT: Outside around the home, in the ground, where termites are suspected to be active. Stations can be set in the ground, through holes in concrete, in dirt crawl spaces or even where dirt is available inside around drain pipes commonly found in slab structures. Ideally stations should be placed where soil moisture is high enough to keep termites happy but not so moist that the station has standing water in them once installed. Remember that concealment is always better so just under the mulch in a an island or flower bed like pine straw or wood chips is a great location.
RATE OF APPLICATION: Stations should be set out every 5-10 feet around the structure. Gaps should not be any greater. If you have obstacles like concrete or decking, it would be wise to make access holes for station placement if you wish to obtain the best results.

Hi, I want to make sure a base station including a station, base wood, and inspection cartridge, total cost is $18?
Please give me a nice response, as I live in Australia, could you post them to me?
Tech Support says
In fact the item above does include the plastic exterior housing station and inside each station there will be a wood stake and the inspection cartridge.
And yes, we can ship them to Australia. We actually ship them abroad all the time but you’ll need to use our International Shopping cart to order; here’s the link:

How often do you check the termite baits.
Tech Support says
So if you read up on our Baiting System, you will learn there is no “bait” in the stations when first set out. Each station has an “inspection cartridge” which termites love and will readily find. They also have a small piece of wood that can attract termites as well. But neither is an active “bait”.
Now once placed out, you’ll want to inspect them once every 2-3 months to see if they have activity. After 6-12 months, plan on replacing the Inspection Cartridge as they tend to rot out. At any time during an inspection, if you find active termites replace the inspection cartridge with a baited cartridge.

Are the termite baits permanent i.e. do you have to annually check the bait/inspection cartridge for the entire time you own your home, even if there has been no signs of termite activity?
Tech Support says
This is a great question! So the the “bait station” above, the plastic section, will last indefinitely. But the inside components will not.
The wooden stake can last 1-2 yrs but the top part, the inspection cartridge, should be inspected once every 3 months. They typically degrade or get fed upon by “bugs” within 6-9 months so if you get a full year from one, you’re doing good. Plan on replacing them annually.
Lastly, if termites are found active or having fed upon either of the two pieces, install a “treated” bait cartridge after removing the inspection cartridge.
