Per the product label, the monitoring and bait cartridges should be checked monthly or bi-monthly if termite activity is present in the area. The Shatter Termite Bait Cartridge is clear so you will be able to see if the bait is gone or not. If it is gone, you should replace.

    Q
    How is Shatter different than Sentricon also made by Dow Agrosciences other than the shape?
    Is the level of Hexaflumeron vary from shatter to sentricon?
    A

    The active ingredient in Shatter Bait is hexaflumuron, while the active ingredient in the Sentricon bait is noviflumuron. The Sentricon system is sold exclusively to licensed and certified professionals and is not available for sale to unlicensed homeowners. This means that a contract with a Certified Sentricon Specialist is required to inspect and maintain the stations, easily costing a homeowner several hundred dollars a year simply for maintenance. Because the replacement parts are proprietary, no parts by other manufacturers are interchangeable for use with Sentricon stations.

    Q
    Can I use Shatter bait from the start?
    I only visit my vacation home every 6 months. I am not available for monthly, bi-monthly monitoring. Can I use the Shatter cartridges right away?
    A

    Yes, you have the option to put Shatter Termite Bait in the termite bait stations prior to seeing any activity, but bare in mind that the bait is only viable for 90 days once opened.  Therefore will need to be replaced every 3 months to maintain effectiveness.

    Q
    Will the Shatter Termite Bait fit in my current baiting system? We have a tube that is 7 1/4" x 1"
    We have a system, installed before we bought the house. Have no sign of termites currently. Hoping not to have to buy a complete system
    A

    Shatter Termite Bait is 1.75 inches wide so would not fit in the stations you currently have.  Some stations can only be serviced by a professional company.  For example, with the Sentricon system, if that is what you have, the replacement pieces are only available to licensed professionals.
