What is Termidor?
Termidor® is a professional termiticide/insecticide that is effective against native subterranean termites, Formosan termites, and drywood termites. It employs a cutting-edge nonrepellent (or “undetectable”) liquid technology that termites are unable to sight, smell, taste, or avoid. Instead, they contact, consume, and share Termidor, utterly oblivious to the fact that doing so will kill them.
Termidor has been shown effective in repeated tests across the U.S. and around the world at eradicating termites in structures and preventing future infestations and damage.
Termite damage is not visible in concrete slab field test plots treated at labeled rates with Termidor® 80 WG termiticide/insecticide for more than 15 years after treatment, according to ongoing field trials conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture-Forest Service-results that no other currently available termite control product can match.
Since Termidor’s introduction in 2000, Termidor Certified Professionals have successfully secured over 4 million homes in the United States. Termidor begins functioning immediately when used according to the label’s instructions, and it has been shown to offer 100 percent control of infesting termites in 3 months or less.
Termidor: How Does It Work?
A liquid Termidor® termiticide/insecticide termite treatment is administered with precision along the foundation walls or external perimeter of your property to control subterranean termites. At very low rates, the treatment employs time-tested application procedures. It has almost no odor and will not interfere with your family’s daily routine.
The “Termidor Zone” is created when Termidor binds strongly to the soil. Termites can’t avoid this protective termite treatment zone because it’s undetectable to them, therefore they won’t try to find a way around it (as they can with repellent termite treatments).
To treat drywood termites and termites in structures or objects not related to your house, your pest specialist may spray Termidor® DRY Termiticide straight into termite galleries. Termidor DRY, unlike liquid treatments, doesn’t add moisture to wood.
What distinguishes Termidor from all other termite control treatments?
Termidor is a liquid, like many of the other termite control solutions on the market, but that’s where the similarity ends. Termidor is the most effective liquid termiticide. Because Termidor is invisible, termites do not try to evade or avoid the treatment zone.
Some nonrepellent liquids claim to be “almost,” “practically,” or “almost” as effective as Termidor, but there’s a big difference between “almost as excellent as Termidor” and Termidor itself when it comes to termite protection.
Is Termidor a tried-and-true product?
Termidor is a termite control product that has received a lot of positive feedback. The Environmental Protection Agency has Termidor on file. Only a pest control specialist who has been educated in proper application methods should use it. Termidor is effective even at modest application rates and adheres to the soil, so homeowners don’t have to worry about the product leaching. Termidor is not a petroleum-based product, and it will not affect vegetation around the application area.
