Product Overview

Trelona ATBS Direct Bait Stations contains 16 direct baited stations. The Trelona ATBS Bait System is the next generation in termite baiting. It is one of the most widely installed bait systems by professional pest control companies today. Unlike older bait systems, the Trelona ATBS bait stations have larger vertical slots that allow for maximum wood-to-soil contact, creating the perfect opportunity for termite attack. Each station contains TMB (termite monitoring base) that is made out of wood and a Trelona TBC (termite bait cartridge) which contains the active ingredient, novaluron. When this is consumed by a termite, it will impair the ability of a termite to properly synthesize chitin and disallow the termite to molt. By being unable to molt, they are not able to form a replacement exoskeleton. Termites will either die or are incapacitated by their inability to complete the molting process.

Trelona ATBS Direct Bait Stations contains:

16 direct bait stations with termite bait cartridge and termite monitoring base

It will cover a 240 linear foot home when placed 15 feet apart. Larger homes will need more baiting stations.

IMPORTANT: You will need to purchase a spider station access tool to open the stations if you do not currently have one.

This 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 object (structure). It does not exclude termites from a structure. Instead, it suppresses or eliminates termite colonies. It affects termite colonies only if they consume it. Therefore, sufficient consumption of bait by all subterranean termite colonies that present an existing or potential hazard to the structure may, subject to the limitations stated herein, protect the structure against subterranean termite attack. If the cycle of pre-baiting and baiting around a structure is interrupted or discontinued, new colonies occupying the territory of suppressed or eliminated colonies, existing colonies that were suppressed but not eliminated, existing colonies never baited or colonies that were pre-baited may forage at points of possible entry into and infest the structure. For this reason, maintain the cycle of pre-baiting and baiting or offer continuous bait for as long as it is desirable to suppress or eliminate subterranean termites. If a soil applied - liquid or granular - termiticide treatment is performed in conjunction with an installation of the bait system, DO NOT treat in the area of installed stations (preferably not within 2 ft of stations). Because the use of bait may be a multi-step process, localized treatment(s) of areas of the structure infested with active termites at the time of pre-baiting or baiting, using soil applied termiticides may provide more immediate control of termites in those parts of the structure than bait. Preventative critical area soil or wood treatments may be performed in conjunction with station installation. DO NOT treat in areas of installed stations during routine pesticide applications.


To install a station, excavate or form a hole in the ground approximately the same size and dimensions as those of the station. Insert the station into the hole. Maximizing contact between the exterior of the station and the earth during installation will increase the probability of termite entrance into the station. If the station is inserted into an opening created through a hardened construction surface (such as a concrete slab, asphalt, etc.), insert station below the surface (in contact with the ground) and seal securely. Install stations at, or preferably within approximately 5 ft of points of known, probable or suspected termite foraging, and at other critical areas. Such areas may include areas with concentrations of cellulose-containing debris, such as mulch or wood scraps, in contact with the ground, areas of moderate soil moisture, shaded areas, areas containing plant root systems, bath traps, visible termite foraging tubes, etc. Install stations around a structure such that, except where sufficient access to the ground is not available, the maximum interval between any 2 stations does not exceed 20 ft. If the distance between 2 points of accessible ground around the structure exceeds 30 ft, it may be advisable to form 1 or more openings in the surface creating the inaccessibility to facilitate baiting between those points. If the structure has an accessible crawl space, stations can be installed in the crawl space in lieu of or in addition to installing stations around the structure; however, either the interior or the exterior of the crawl space must contain a complete set of stations, as defined by this label. Stations can be installed within a slab structure at existing or created openings in the slab surface through which ground is accessible and into which the station can be installed in a secure manner.

    Best Bait system on the Market

    By Ethan on 10/26/2016

    I have been in the pest control industry for several years, working for a large company, and now for myself. I have used termidor, sentricon, and this Trelona ATBS. I have to say that this is by far the best and easiest system to use on the market. Same type of ai as sentricon, always active, simple installation, quicker hits than sentricon and best of all you own not rent this system which is so much better than paying dow agro royalties!!! I would use this system any day over hexpro and sentricon.

    By John on 09/14/2018

    I received these bait stations in a timely manner. They were fairly easy to install. However I won't know the effectiveness of this product for at least 6 months to a year. Thank you.

How long does the Trelona Direct Bait last in the ground?

If I install, and if the bait is not touched, do I have to periodically replace? How about if gets saturated?


According to page 4 of the Trelona Bait Station label, if termites are not present or there has been excessive decay or moisture to the bait station, it will need to be replaced after 60 days. If you remove the bait station, it is recommended to replace the bait station with a monitoring station.

I noticed baby/white termite activity in my termite stations so I so I put in the Trelona bait cartridge. Anything else I should do?

Wood in bottom is pretty well eaten up & has baby white termites but I didn't want to disturb it much. Should I replace the wood?


We recommend changing the bait in the Trelona ATBS Direct Bait Stations when the bait has been consumed three-quarters of the way, or annually - whichever comes first. That would also be the same for the wood monitoring bases that are in these stations as well. You can find replacement bait cartridges here, and replacement wood monitoring bases here.
