Termite baiting systems

Trelona® ATBS – A revolution in termite baiting technology

Termite baiting is designed to protect structures by eliminating foraging termites around your home. The Trelona® ATBS Advance Termite Baiting System has been developed to allow pest management professionals the opportunity to tailor the most appropriate termite management solution, for any Australian home.

Trelona® ATBS combines the latest research in termite behavior with the most advanced termite bait system to provide:

  1. A sturdy and discrete bait station, designed to encourage station interception and feeding

  2. A system which can be applied as both a monitoring or an active system, providing year-round protection

  3. An advanced bait matrix, containing revolutionary termite bait technology that makes it irresistible to termites

  4. The only system, specifically designed to be used in with the Termidor® range of products

In simple terms, the purpose of a termite bait system is to intercept termites in the grounds or gardens around your home – before they reach, and potentially damage your property. The sole purpose is to eradicate termite colonies.

This is achievable through termites returning the actual bait back to the nest.

Baiting stations are a great way to safely detect and eradicate termites where a chemical soil barrier is not practical or possible. It’s also a safer alternative for property owners who prefer not to use traditional chemical treatment methods.

 

What to expect

Prior to installation of Trelona® ATBS, Buugcall pest management will conduct an inspection of your home to determine, what management of termites within your home is required, what remedial steps may be required and the most appropriate installation and management plan for your home and circumstances.

On installation, ATBS stations will be installed around your home, at approximately 3 metre spacings. Your pest management professional will then identify the required inspections period, which may vary from one to six monthly intervals, depending on the level of activity, sites risks and the type of system to be installed (monitoring vs. active).

Trelona® ATBS and Termidor® – Combined protection, unmatched piece of mind

The unique advantage of Trelona® ATBS is that it can be used in combination with Termidor® Residual termiticide and insecticide and Termidor® HE high-efficiency termiticide.

Termidor® has been the most trusted name in termite control since 2002 and has been the benchmark for termiticides in the Australian market. This trusted technology can now be combined with the most advanced baiting system available.

Due to termite risk or construction design, a combined treatment may provide the most adequate and thorough protection for your home (Figure 1). Where required or in instances where additional “piece of mind” is desired, your pest management professional may design a treatment plan combining the power of these two trusted technologies.
