BASF Introduces Trelona Compressed Termite Bait

Supplier News

The bait features the new active ingredient novaluron.

| August 1, 2014

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – The BASF Pest Control Solutions business announced today that Trelona ATBS (Advance Termite Bait System) is now available for use to control termites.

Trelona Compressed Termite Bait, with the new active ingredient Novaluron, provides faster termite elimination and uses less bait than previous active ingredients, BASF reports. Trelona ATBS offers flexibility in selling either the Trelona ATBS Monitoring System or the Trelona ATBS Direct Baiting System to homeowners. In addition, PMPs that are already using ATBS and have existing accounts that haven’t had termite activity for a year can begin using Trelona ATBS and benefit from a six-month inspection interval.

Another significant benefit to PMPs is that Trelona Compressed Termite Bait is sold as an agency product through BASF distribution partners, which ensures consistent pricing.This takes the upfront guesswork out of bait costs, allowing PMPs to better understand the cost per home from the start of each project.
