The Firstline monitor station is replaced with the GT Plus Bait Station whenever the presence of termites has been discovered in the monitor station. The bait stations should be replaced as they are consumed by the termites. They should be monitored on a monthly basis until the termite activity is gone. When feeding has stopped, the bait station is replaced with a monitor station with new wood. 1 Box of 6
The FirstLine® GT Plus Termite Bait Station with SmartDisc™ Locator and Monitor. Not your ordinary stick in the mud.
The FirstLine® GT Plus Termite Bait Station contains the active ingredient, sulfluramid, which is a slow-acting stomach toxicant that kills all types of subterranean termites, including reproductives. The 7”-diameter SMARTDISC™ Locator features a moisture-retaining footprint and ridged design to help termites find the station four times faster for more hits and improved efficiency. Plus, the station is the only professional bait station certified “Child Resistant” according to guidelines set forth by the Consumer Products Safety Commission. Which means each cap is permanently sealed for safety and is transparent for easy visual inspections.
I really liked this product and will continue to use it. Once the traps are dug and set into place they are very easy to monitor and replace when necessary. So far I have not seen any more termite activity in the infested areas but have seen them "take the bait" in the cartridges just like they were supposed to. I would definitely recommend this cost effective approach to termite control and destruction. I literally saved thousands after my local pest control people wanted on average $3K to install and monitor the traps. Plus they wanted $450 per year on a min 2 year contract!
If I buy 6 of FirstLine GT Plus Termite Bait stations and only use 2 a year, will the other 4 still be good?
The FirstLine GT Plus Termite Bait is just cardboard laced with a chemical that the termites eat and will not degrade much at all over time. There should be no issues if the bait sits for a few years without being used.
I have the in-ground stations. Can I drop the cylinder looking bait into them?
You really need to identify the brand of station that you have as the manufacturers make the stations specifically so another manufacturers product cannot be used in them. Also, the Firstline GT Plus Termite should only be used after termite activity has been confirmed.
