The Advance Termite Monitoring Base is for use only in Advance Termite Bait Stations. The wooden bases are a preferred wood for subterranean termites and attract them to the stations for easy monitoring and baiting.

Use a flathead screwdriver or Advance Spider Tool to remove the black cap from Advance Stations. Remove the Termite Inspection Cartridge or Termite Bait Cartridge (using a cotter pin hand tool is helpful). Remove old or damaged Termite Monitoring Base, then replace with fresh wood base (two halves form a complete base for each station). Re-insert or replace Monitoring or Bait Cartridge as appropriate, then replace black cap.
Wooden Termite Monitoring Bases should be replaced once a year or as needed if spongy, waterlogged, or moldy.
Each 5-pack contains five complete Termite Monitoring Bases (10 pieces total).
For use in the following areas:
For use in Advance Termite Bait System Stations only.

I had to buy new bases. A couple of years ago I bought more poison. My house is built in the woods, and there are lots of termites. I have 10 sets that I keep moving after termites have been spotted and inserts switched from monitoring to poisoning. They have worked so far.
I just got my new wood inserts but I went too long between replacing them and because some of the bases are in an area where the soil rarely dries completely (lots of shade and a flat area where water doesn’t run off) and the units are now filled with mud. Any tips on how to extract the rotten wood inserts to put the new ones in?
If you are removing The Advance Termite Monitoring Base we would advice to use pliers or an Allen key to do so. The stations should be placed in areas where they will not get water logged so may need to be moved or just removed from that area completely.
