Spectracide Terminate Termite Detection & Killing Stakes2 is a do-it-yourself termite bait and killer stakes available to consumers. The stakes pop-up when termite activity is detected and an easy-to-find locator shields make it easier for regular inspection. Contains 15 stakes that kill foraging termites. The kit also includes a digging tool, for faster installation, and complete instruction booklet. Features pop-up indicators that detects termite activity. Spectracide Terminate products are not recommended as sole protection against termites, and for active infestations, get a professional inspection. READ THE ENTIRE LABEL AND FOLLOW ALL PRECAUTIONS AND DIRECTIONS. DIRECTIONS FOR USE: 1. Determine the number of stakes you need. The number of stakes needed is determined by the distance around the outside of your house. To estimate, use the square footage of your home excluding your garage, attached decks, patios and porches. Up to 1,200 sq ft use 10 stakes, 12,200 to 2,500 sq. ft. or more use 20 stakes. 2. Install the stakes around the house. Using the enclosed auger, dig holes 2 to 3 ft away from the foundation and no more than 10 ft apart. Insert the stakes with locator shield in the holes. Place stakes closer together in “termite critical” areas. Notice: Do not use auger for any purpose other than installation of the Spectracide Terminate Termite Detection & Killing Stakes2. Inspect the stakes. Check the stakes for termite activity when the pop-up indicator is seen by pulling the stakes from the ground. The locator shields will help make removal of the stakes easier. It is important to check the stakes every three months. If you live in an area suspected to contain Formosan subterranean termites, the frequency of stake inspection should be increased to once a month. Look for signs that the bait has been eaten or that termites are present inside the stake. If evidence of termite activity is found in any stake, take the following steps: 1) Replace the active stake with a new stake; 2) Install additional stakes (three or more) within one foot of the infested stake; and 3) Note the date, the location and the additional stakes on your drawing. All stakes must be replaced or removed every 12 months. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after completing the inspection. Do not reuse the bait cartridges. Subterranean termites secrete colony-specific pheromones that become incorporated into the bait while feeding and foraging. The pheromones left in the bait by one colony will cause feeding deterrence or repellency to other colonies, causing it to be ineffective. Replacement Stakes are available: HG-96116/ B00AA8WVO0 or B00EORPBQ
