The Superway Compact Termite Baiting Station comes already assembled and ready for you to activate for outdoor use.
Ideally the Superway Compact Termite Baiting Stations should be placed every 3 to 4 metres around the perimeter of a suburban residential property. This means you can use the compact station in small or tight areas where the larger station cannot be installed or you could use them to cover the area between two or more larger stations. To reduce the number of stations required and to provide complete coverage; use the Compact station in conjunction with the Superway Standard Termite Baiting Station which is 3.5 metres long or; with extensions—5 metres long.
Garden beds are an ideal location as they are normally moist and offer the least chance of disturbance. The stations can be buried under pavers if you desire however be aware that the inspection tube needs to be easily accessible.
If you are only using a few compact stations initially, determine where your property is most at risk from attack (e.g. shrubs, old tree stumps, wooden fence posts etc) and install the stations nearby.
Dig a hole so that only approx 50mm of the inspection tube is visible above ground once buried. Once the station is in the ground, pour about half a cup of water down the top of the inspection tube to start the process of timber decay that termites will be seeking. Don't push the cap on to the inspection tube too tight as it will be difficult to remove next time during regular checking.
Every 2-3 weeks check for activity by simply lifting the cap and looking down the top of the inspection tube (use a flashlight if you need to). If you notice termite activity, Don't Panic! - carefully replace the cap taking care not to disturb the termites in the baiting station. If there are only a few termites in the station, wait a week or so and check again. The more termites active in the station, the more termites will feed on the bait and the quicker you will kill the entire nest.
When you are ready to apply the termite treatment (you can phone us for advice if need); mix up the required amount of treatment (you must use the full dose recommended to be successful) and apply down the top of the
inspection tube. Check after 10 days to see if activity is still continuing, if so a second dose of treatment may be required. To purchase the Superway White Ant Termite Treatment, phone us and order a pack and we will get it out to you as fast as we can!
Once the nest has been eradicated (this may take 4-6 weeks), the station may be removed from the ground, cleaned out and rebaited ready to start the process again in the same place or relocated to another area at risk. If the termites have eaten most of the bait away—call us and order a new rebait kit and we will send it to you ASAP!
