No need for wood base and termite monitoring cartridge with Advance Termite Bait Station Annual Baiting Refill Kit?

I am confused about the upgrade instructions. When I bought the ATBS system, the instructions said that Termite Monitoring Base (TMB) and Termite Inspection Cartridge (TIC) need to used first until termite activities are found, then replace TIC with Trelona Termite Bait Cartridges (TBC). The new upgrade instructions say we can use two TBC without TMB or TIC. Why are the instructions changed now? Is TBC effective to monitor/attract termites?


The manufacturer has done extensive new research to ensure the Trelona Termite Bait Cartridges (TBC) are very attractive to termites. The intention is to move to annual checking of the stations to reduce the amount of times pro companies need to visit homes. The Trelona Termite Bait Cartridges (TBC) do need to be changed yearly so the expense is quite a bit higher than using the Termite Monitoring Base (TMB) and Termite Inspection Cartridge (TIC) which do need to be checked quarterly.
