Above ground termite bait stations were sold years ago, but currently, there are none available. The problem is, that once termites are actively feeding on the home, or have attached themselves to it, there is no "miracle" attractant that attracts them to the station.
The old theory was that if you kept the stations moist, then that would attract them. But after several University studies proved that it didn't work, most were taken off of the market.
In the case of termites eating drywall, or entering a slab through an expansion joint (crack), the accepted method of treatment is to either treat the crack directly with liquid Termidor SC, foam the wall cavity above the crack with Termidor, or do both.
I would also suggest to treat the outer foundation wall. If you do a spot treatment this way, it will not effect the termite bait stations you have already installed that are more than 25 feet away from the structure.
Hope this makes sense.
