Trelona Termite Bait

Trelona Termite Bait is powered by a novel active ingredient Novaluron. Trelona requires much less bait for complete colony elimination to be achieved when compared to other termite baits.

Trelona Termite Baits can be used as either a traditional monitoring system or as an ‘Active on Application’ system. Trelona ATBS (Active Termite Bait Station) may also be used in combination with BASF’s industry-leading termiticides, Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide and Termidor HE Residual Termiticide so a management system can be tailored for any situation. 

Active Ingredient: Novaluron @ 5g/kg.

Trelona Termite Bait TRELONA BASF

Description

Trelona Termite Bait

Active Ingredient: Novaluron @ 5g/kg.

Trelona Termite Bait is powered by a novel active ingredient Novaluron. Trelona requires much less bait for complete colony elimination to be achieved when compared to other termite baits. Trelona Termite Baits can be used as either a traditional monitoring system or as an ‘Active on Application’ system. Trelona ATBS (Active Termite Bait Station) may also be used in combination with BASF’s industry-leading termiticides, Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide and Termidor HE Residual Termiticide so a management system can be tailored for any situation. 

When used as an ‘Active on Application’ system, Trelona ATBS allows inspection frequencies to be extended whilst providing year-round protection from the time of installation. The unique ATBS station holds up to 248 grams of bait (2 x Cartridges) and has been designed to encourage termite interception and quick feeding. This provides peace of mind that your most valuable asset is being protected.

Which termite species does Trelona Termite Bait control;

  • Subterranean termites including, (but not limited to): 
    • Coptotermes acinaciformis
    • Mastotermes darwiniensis
    • Schedorhinotermes spp.

Termite baiting is designed to protect structures by eliminating foraging termites around your home. The Trelona Termite Bait 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 behaviour with the most advanced termite bait system to provide:

  • A sturdy and discrete bait station, designed to encourage station interception and feeding, 
  • A system that can be applied as both a monitoring or an active system, providing year-round protection.
  • An advanced bait matrix, containing revolutionary termite bait technology that makes it irresistible to termites.
  • The only system, specifically designed to be used in with the Termidor range of products. 

The active ingredient, Novaluron, is an insect development inhibitor. When consumed by a termite, novaluron impairs the ability of a termite to properly synthesize chitin and inhibits the termite’s ability to moult. Moulting is the process by which termites, at certain points in their development, shed their existing exoskeleton and form a replacement exoskeleton. 

Termites that attempt to moult after ingesting an amount of bait sufficient to impair their moulting process either die or are incapacitated by their inability to complete the moulting process. Insect development inhibitors such as novaluron are characterised as slow-acting toxicants; however, their action is slow only when they affect a termite at the point in its life cycle when it moults. Because all the termites in a colony do not moult at the same time, the effect of novaluron on the colony as a whole is progressive. This progressive effect is one of the key attributes of novaluron enabling termite colony effects.

Sufficient consumption of bait by a termite colony can cause a decline in the number of colony members. Such a decline, if sustained by continued consumption of bait by the colony, can significantly impair the colonies vitality. Further, continued consumption of bait by remaining colony members may ultimately result in the total elimination of the colony. The extent of the decline of the colony, the speed of its decline and the possibility of its elimination depends upon the extent to which bait is made continuously available to a colony for consumption and the extent to which members of the colony consume it.

    Easy DIY, fingers crossed they work

    Oliver

    Got these to replace an Exterra system which failed to keep termites out from my home even though it was professionally monitored.

    I will be saving a lot of money by installing these myself and make sure to follow recommended specifications and monitor accordingly.

    Fingers crossed they work. When I had questioned I emailed BASF and Leigh was very prompt to answer all my concerns.

    I saved $1800 by buying this kit and doing the install myself with a 75mm garden soil drill bit from Bunnings. Don’t forget to buy the “spider key” too so you can easily open and check the bait stations.

Critical Comments: 

  • Install Trelona in and around structures to be monitored or protected.
  • A minimum hole diameter of 82mm is required for the Trelona ATBS unit.
  • ATBS stations should be positioned in areas where termites are most likely to forage and placed at approximately 3m apart.
  • Station inspections should be carried out at 8-12 weekly intervals until termites are intercepted. Note, during warmer months or in areas where Mastotermes darwiniensis occur inspections may be carried out more frequently.
  • The first inspection post-installation may also be sooner (4 weeks post-installation) should the structure be under attack.
  • These stations should be inspected at 4-8 weekly intervals and replenished as required.
  • Trelona may be installed as a monitoring system with bait added once termite activity is observed within the station or as an active system on application with Trelona added during installation.

Application:

  • This product is intended for use in an ongoing program of management and control of subterranean termite colonies in the ground around and under any type of building or other structure. 
  • Trelona may be used as part of a traditional monitoring and baiting program or maybe installed immediately with the installation of Advance Termite Bait System (ATBS) stations to provide an active system on application (Active on Application). 
  • Disposable gloves must be worn whilst handling bait cartridges to avoid contamination that may deter termites.

Active on Application:

  • Trelona may be applied as an ‘active on application’ system. 
  • During station installation, two 124gm Trelona baits cartridges should be added to each ATBS bait station. Station.
  • Inspections should be carried out at 3-6 monthly intervals until termites are intercepted.
  • Note, during warmer months or in areas where Mastotermes darwiniensis occur inspections may be carried out more frequently, the first inspection post-installation may also be sooner (1-2 months post-installation) should the structure be under attack.
  • Once termites intercept stations, active stations should be inspected on a 6-8 weekly basis and replenished as required. 
  • Once the colony has been eliminated 3-6 monthly inspection intervals may be reinstated.
  • Any cartridge with >50% consumption should be replaced.

Monitoring:

  • Trelona is designed for use with the Advance Termite Bait System (ATBS). 
  • ATBS stations are designed to contain Timber Termite Monitoring Base’s (TMBs) and a Blank Termite Inspection Cartridge (TIC). 
  • ATBS stations should be positioned in areas where termites are most likely to forage and placed at approximately 3m apart. 
  • Station inspections should be carried out at 8-12 weekly intervals until termites are intercepted. Note, during warmer months or in areas where Mastotermes darwiniensis occur inspections may be carried out more frequently. 
  • The first inspection post-installation may also be sooner (4 weeks post-installation) should the structure be under attack.
  • Once termites are intercepted the TIC cartridge can be removed and replaced with a Trelona bait cartridge. 
  • The Trelona bait cartridge can be added without the need or addition of water. 
  • These stations should be inspected at 4-8 weekly intervals and replenished as required. 
  • Once a colony has been eliminated, replacement TMBs and TIC can be reinserted and the monitoring program can be re-established.

Managing Termites within Structures:

  • Trelona may be utilised within compatible above-ground bait stations. Stations should be inspected on a 3-6 weekly basis and replenished as required.
  • Trelona and ATBS are compatible with and designed to be used in conjunction with the complete range of Termidor Products. 
  • Termites within structures should be controlled and eradicated using either Trelona (within an above-ground bait station/s) or using Termidor Foam, Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide and/or Termidor HE Residual Termiticide. 
  • Where construction issues limit the efficacy of either Trelona, ATBS or a Termidor treated zone or in areas of high risk, a combination system can be applied to protect the structure.

Adherence to the directions for use can increase the likelihood of colony elimination; however, conditions or circumstances beyond the control of the user may prevent or substantially delay colony elimination. Such conditions may include, but are not limited to, alternate non-bait food sources that reduce the extent to which the colony depends on the bait as a food source, excess moisture, low or high temperatures or abandonment of feeding on the bait by the colony.

    The name "white ant" is a common term for termites. It's not a precise scientific term, but it is widely used to describe these insects. Termites that feed on Trelona Termite Baits Termites and attempt to moult after ingesting an amount of bait sufficient to impair their moulting process either die or are incapacitated by their inability to complete the moulting process.

    Answered by the admin

    We recommend getting someone in to look at the termite bait station as soon as possible. The white powder around the top is likely termite bait. As you are in a complex whereby Body Corporate takes care of termite control, we recommend contacting them and letting them know about the loose lid requesting they send someone out sooner than they had initially planned. If you are uncomfortable waiting for Body Corporate to send someone out, you can hire a private pest control company to come and look at the termite bait station. They can assess the situation and recommend the best course of action. It is important to remember that termites are a serious problem and should not be ignored. If you have any concerns about termites, it is always best to err on the side of caution and get them checked out by a professional.

    The Trelona bait stations can be easily opened with the Trelona ATBS Key, also known as a spider key, due to its appearance. The spider key is placed over the cap on top of the station and then turned to unlock and remove the cap to allow visual inspections inside the bait station. The Spider Key is designed to connect neatly to the cap of the bait station to unlock and remove the inspection cap easily.

    Station inspections to check baits require the removal of the lid for a complete observation. The wearing of gloves is recommended. Station inspections should be carried out at 3-6 monthly intervals until termites are intercepted during warmer months or in areas where Mastotermes darwiniensisoccur, inspections may be carried out more frequently. The first inspection post-installation may also be sooner (1-2 months post-installation) should the structure be attacked. Once termites intercept stations, active stations should be inspected 6-8 weekly and replenished as required. Once the colony has been eliminated, 3-6 monthly inspection intervals may be reinstated. Any cartridge with >50% consumption should be replaced.
