Termite Bait Monitoring Stations are a monitoring system to assist in ascertaining whether termite activity is present around your property.
The Termite Bait Monitoring Stations, which contains termite attraction materials, are installed strategically in the ground around your property.
Termites are lured to these stations and once termites have entered the stations, then a treatment with an approved termiticide is carried out by the pest technician. After termites in the Bait Stations have been treated the termiticide has numerous ways of eradicating the colony and the nest: for instance – termites grooming each other, cannibalism, feeding the queen with the treated food. These are just a few ways of eradicating the colony and nest.
Inspection of the Termite Bait Monitoring Stations should be inspected every 4 – 6 weeks by the home owner or the pest technician. If you, the home owner, find termites within a Termite Bait Monitoring Station then you must contact the pest technician to carry out the treatment and restocking of bait stations if and when required.

- Overflow pipe of hot water service or air conditioning unit
