The Termatrix Termite Bait contains 1g/kg of Chlorfluazuron as the active constituent, which is about as toxic as table salt!). As termites feed and then travel back to the colony, they share termite bait with other nest mates (trophallaxis) and send other termites back to feed on the bait. As feeding on the bait continues and more and more termites are affected, the termite colony starts to die and is eliminated. The stages of colony elimination will be identified by the professional Pest Manager and will include; worker termites becoming creamish coloured (within first 2 weeks), lethargic worker termites (first 4 weeks), a larger number of soldier termites and increased fungi in the station (final stage of elimination).
What happens after Termites are eliminated?
After a colony is controlled the bait is replaced with new termatriX monitors and or the Pest Manager may recommend a chemical barrier be installed such as Biforce or Fipforce. Your pest professional will continue to inspect the stations regularly to discover and treat any new colonies that may invade your property.
What is Unique about the Termatrix termite Elimination System?
The latest research conducted by the CSIRO in Australia shows that termites are highly attracted to multiple food sources that contain large surface areas such as the combination found solely in the TermatriX Station design. The TermatriX stations contain 3 highly palatable food sources delivering the largest cellulose food attractant available in any baiting station found in the market. In addition, each station contains a unique highly palatable compressed cellulose attractant easily opened to make termite inspection quick, easy and less costly.
