Trelona® ATBS Annual Bait Stations(ever station is filled with bait from the time of install) feature a superior design that leads to faster termite hits. In fact, in a university study, termites found Trelona ATBS Annual Bait Stations faster* than Sentricon® stations. In this study, Trelona ATBS and Sentricon stations were placed within 0.5 meters of an active termite colony. The study had 20 replicates and stations were checked daily over 46 days producing the results shown here.
The Advance Termite Bait System is the next generation in termite baiting.
You simply place the Advance Termite bait stations out, wait for termite activity then replace the inspection monitor with the bait matrix. This bait cartridge ( Diflubenzuron. . . . . 0.25%) will wipe out the whole colony.
The Advance Termite Bait System is one of the most widely installed bait systems by professional pest control companies today.
Each Advance termite bait station contains a wood base and a Termite Inspection Cartridge of enticing Puri-Cell cellulose matrix that is very appetizing to termites. (see picture) Compared to other bait systems, the Advance Termite Bait stations have larger vertical slots that allow for maximum wood-to-soil contact, creating the perfect opportunity for termite attack. (You want termite attacks in this case for them to take the bait.)
Advance Termite Bait Use: Installed around the perimeter of homes and commercial buildings. Stations are placed in the ground (usually with a post hole digger or shovel) every 10 feet around the structure. The stations will allow a place for termites to be detected before they ever reach the structure, and then allowing you to bait and eventually kill the termites. Stations are monitored on a quarterly basis. If termite activity is present, the inspection cartridge is replaced with a Termite Bait Cartridge with active ingredient.
Installation of Advance Termite Bait System
Easy installation -Install the stations at the 7-20 ft intervals 3 or so feet away from the foundation wall.
These termite bait stations are designed for easy termite access. A preferred wood species with horizontal grooves in the base of the station allows easy termite access into the termite stations. The stations also contain Puri-CellT Compressed Cellulose Tablets, a unique wood feeding source for termites
Monitor the stations on a quarterly basis, look for termite activity inside the termite bait station. Once you do have termite activity, you replace the Termite Inspection Cartridge with the Termite Bait Cartridge.
Quick transfer from wooden termite monitoring base allows for less disturbance of termites actively feeding on the wooden base, letting the termites recruit other termites for feeding on the stations.
The Termite Bait Cartridge has a bait load large enough to easily eliminate most termite colonies.
Once termites begin feeding, there is enough bait to kill two to eight times the average colony size and is nearly three times the bait load of the leading competitive product
Recheck the bait stations in 90 days. If termite activity has ceased, remove the Termite Bait Cartridge and insert a new Termite Inspection Cartridge. Continue quarterly monitoring and baiting.
