The HexPro Termite Baiting System is the next generation in termite baiting. It is one of the most widely installed bait systems by professional pest control companies today. Unlike older bait systems, the HexPro bait stations have larger vertical slots that allow for maximum wood-to-soil contact, creating the perfect opportunity for termite attack. HexPro Termite Baiting stations also provides an environmentally sensible solution with minimal amount of termite bait. It has low toxicity to birds, fish and plants, low impact on human health and has low potential for groundwater contamination when used as instructed. This system requires no trenching or drilling in floors. Each station contains a wood base monitor that is very appetizing to termites. When termites are found in the stations, the cartridge is replaced with a termite bait (Shatter) that wipes out the entire termite colony.
The HexPro Termite Baiting System Pro Kit contains:
10, 15 or 20 Termite Monitoring Stations that each contain a wood base monitor. These stations are to be placed 8 - 10 feet apart around the outside perimeter of a home but not more than 20 feet. Larger homes will require more stations.
6 Termite Bait Cartridges for use when termite activity is present in the stations.
1 Key comes with the Kit of 10 stations and Kit of 15 stations. 2 Keys come with Kit of 20 stations. This Key is used for opening the monitoring/bait stations.
NOTE: Every station comes with an extractor piece already installed in the station for easy removal of the wood monitor.
The HexPro Termite Bait System is the next generation in termite baiting. The termite bait station features vertical slots that allow for maximum wood-to-soil contact, creating the perfect opportunity for termite attack. Each station contains a wood monitor that is appetizing to termites.
Stations should be checked monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly. If termite activity is observed in one or more stations, the wood monitor in those stations should be replaced with a Shatter Termite Bait Cartridge containing the active ingredient hexaflumuron. Hexaflumuron is an insect growth regulator that stops the termites’ vital molting process so they are unable to grow. As a result, they die. Hexaflumuron has demonstrated 10 years of in-field success killing, controlling and eliminating termites. The HexPro Termite Bait System - Pro Kit allows for accurate monitoring and localized treatment before termites reach the structure.
Subterranean termites - (not drywood) termite species in the continental United States and Hawaii. It does the job in varying soil, climate and geographic conditions.
Install around the perimeter of homes and commercial buildings. Stations are placed in the ground (usually with a post hole digger or shovel) every 8 - 10 feet around the structure. The stations will attract termites before they ever reach the structure, allowing you to bait, eventually killing the termites. Monitor the stations on a monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly basis. If termite activity is present, replace the wood monitor with the Shatter Termite Bait.
The HexPro Termite Bait System Kit should be used for prevention. Installing bait stations alone will not treat termites that have already infested a structure. If used in conjunction with a liquid termite treatment (See Subterranean Termite Treatment Guide), use only non-repellent termiticides such as Termidor SC.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Shatter Termite Bait - hexaflumuron 0.5%
*Always read the product label completely before use.
Install HexPro Bait Stations into the ground every 8-10 feet around the perimeter of the structure. Stations should be placed 2-4 feet away from the foundation, but not directly under the drip line from the roof of the structure. Hex-Pro Termite Stations should be placed in the soil such that the top is flush with the soil surface. For ease, the monitoring device should be in place and the station top cap secure at the time of installation.
Monitor stations every 30 - 90 days for termite activity.
If termite activity is present, replace the wood monitor with a bait cartridge containing Shatter termite bait according to Shatter label instructions. Additionally when termites or termite activity are detected in a monitoring device, install one or more additional Hex-Pro Termite Stations (auxiliary stations) in the soil within 6 to 12 inches of the infested station, if feasible. When an infested Hex-Pro Termite Station is baited with Shatter termite bait, it is strongly recommended that one or more of the auxiliary stations be baited with Shatter termite bait to increase bait volume and maximize bait consumption. See Shatter product label for details.
Termite feeding on Shatter termite bait can be enhanced by adding a minimum of 0.7 fluid ounces (approx. 20 mL) of water or a sugar-containing solution such as a sports performance drink to the recruitment chamber of the bait cartridge. In arid areas and in dry soils, add up to 2.7 fluid ounces (approx. 80 mL) of water or sugar-containing solution before introducing termites to the chamber.
Inspect active bait stations every 30 - 90 days to see if termite activity has stopped. When activity stops, Shatter termite bait can be removed and replaced with a wood monitor. Repeat process as needed.
Replace the wood monitor as needed. Wood that is soggy or moldy should be replaced as soon as possible.
Just installed these around a home that has had termite damage. They were relatively easy to install. I used a solid 1" rebar to start the hole, then pounded a 1 1/2" pipe into the hole with a sledge hammer. Although they seem somewhat cheap, they withstood me "finishing off" flush in the ground with a hammer and a wood block. I don't know how they work and hope I never do. I work in the turf industry and DOW has trusted products.
I read some reviews about heavy rains making the bait stations pop up out of the ground and that's exactly what happened to mine about a week after installing them. The more it rains the more they pop up out of the ground. I think the stations would probably work as intended if it weren't for this issue but I have a hard time believing any termites will find their way to the stations if they're constantly under water. Not trying to rip the product and the company is great, just don't think this product works real effectively.
Do the HexPro Termite Baiting Systems kill the termites or just lets you know they are there?
I was planting and found termites in the soil very close to my house. I would like to know best way to get rid of them.
The Termite Baiting System Kits are put down to monitor activity around the home first and if a termite colony finds its way into one of the stations, then you would put one of the poison bait cartridges into that station only to eliminate the colony that is there.
Can HexPro Termite Baiting System- Pro Kit be used where landscaping plastic is also being used?
In my flower bed I'm using landscaping plastic for weed control. I read the product label and saw place stations every 8 to 20 feet and 2 to 4 feet from the foundation. Can I poke holes in the plastic and extend the station in to the ground?
Yes, you can use the HexPro Termite Baiting System - Pro Kit with landscaping plastic. You would cut a hole in the plastic to accomodate the station in the ground, and it would fit flush against it once it is installed. The stations would still be effective as long as they are buried in the ground as stated on the product label.
