Trelona Advanced Termite Baiting System – How It Works?

Trelona Advanced Termite Baiting System (ATBS) unlike many predecessors in the industry have far surpassed the standards when it comes to Termite Colony Eradications. 

The Trelona stations are installed around the perimeter of the property at an ideal 3 meters apart from each other and around 1 meter off the wall of the property. The stations are core drilled into soil beds or concrete and inserted with the Always Active chemical canister which are set and forget!

These stations and the effective active chemical ‘Novaluron’ which are contained in the baits are an absolute game changer the way they are transferred throughout the colony and how little consumption is required compared to other competitors baits, in order to effectively and successfully eradicate the attacking termite colony.

How Often Should These Be Monitored ?

The canisters have a life of 3-5 years, this depends on the moisture content of soil and surrounding environment. An annual inspection is ideal and strongly recommended, but some properties may require their inspections more often such as semi-annually depending on each property’s unique setting and location.

How does the Active Chemical Novaluron Work?

Each canister contains a total of 5g/kg of Novaluron and each station holds up to 248 grams of bait. Termites never sleep and are always foraging for their next meal. The way the product and the containing bait works, is to entice the termites prior to feeding on your home, to instead target the stations and commencing the process of trophallaxis. Trophallaxis is the transfer of chemical messages and nutrients between termites (basically the work termites, feed on the baits and transfer throughout the colony and eventually to the queen, thus eradicating them all).

Novaluron takes effect over a few days of ingestions which is why it’s so effective with termites. Considering a colony of thousands upon thousands of termites, distribution of the chemical takes time. The combination of trophallaxis and slow-active chemicals becomes a deadly mix of successful eradication for surrounding termites.
