Installed in Inground Stations, this cartridge contains compressed cellulose and is used in the monitoring phase of Termite baiting to encourage feeding. When termites are found feeding in this cartridge it is easily replaced with an active bait cartridge.
How to use the ATBS stations as a monitoring system
The ATBS stations, both inground and in-concrete, can be used as a baiting and monitoring system, where Trelona bait is added once termite activity is intercepted in the station. The monitoring system is comprised of two components:
- Timber Monitor Base (TMB)
- Termite Inspection Cartridge (TIC)
The Termite Inspection Cartridge (TIC) contains Puri-cell tablets which are formulated with highly purified cellulous, a preferred food source for termites. The timber inspection cartridge should be placed in the bait station on top of the timber monitor base.
The design of this monitoring system allows termites to easily find the timber monitor base, build in numbers when feeding on the timber and travel upwards into the termite inspection cartridge. When termites move into feed on the compressed Puri-cell cartridge, they will exploit this food source and invest time in the station, improving the chances of intercepting termites on a regular inspection.
When handling these monitoring components, disposable gloves should be worn to avoid contamination that could deter termites from entering the station.
