Do the monitoring stations contain pesticides?

I would like to monitor my house for termite activity but only treat with pesticides if there is actually a problem. I have two concerns: 1. We want to attract beneficial fauna like bees and frogs to the yard and these are very sensitive to chemicals. 2. We have edible plants around the house and I don't want these chemicals to get in our food. Of course if we had termites, the chemicals are better than termites, but as treatment for a potentially non-existent problem it seems a little harsh.


The monitoring stations only contact wood and a cellulose cartridge. The pesticides are only put into the stations if you find activity.
