Did you know?

  • Americans spend more than $2.5 billion each year dealing with termites and repairing the damage they cause.
  • Termite damage is not covered by most homeowners’ insurance policies and can go undetected for years.
  • Termites are found in every state in the United States except Alaska.
  • Each year termites cause more damage to homes than tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and fires combined.
  • Some termite species need only a space 1/64-inch wide, the thickness of a piece of paper, to enter a home.

Termidor is one of the most tested termite solutions in history.

Termidor for Termite Control

Before Termidor was made available to American homeowners through Termidor Certified Professionals, it was subject to some of the toughest tests in history. For 8+ years, grueling USDA-Forest Service ground board and concrete slab trials in four states tested Termidor. At every application rate and every last location, Termidor proved 100% effective.

How Termidor’s “Transfer Effect” works.

Termidor Transfer Effect

The active ingredient in Termidor is fipronil and it works quite differently from other termiticide active ingredients. Most termiticides are repellents, which means they keep termites away from a treated area, rather than killing them. These repellent termiticides also kill termites. However, since the termites are repelled when they come in contact or just before actually contacting pyrethroid treated soil, the ‘killing power’ is less dramatic and if anyone took the time to count dead termites, less efficient.

Termidor is non-repellent. Termites can’t detect it. Since they don’t know it’s there, they forage freely in a treated area. Like other leading liquid termiticides, Termidor is lethal to termites when they ingest it (which they do readily since they don’t know it’s there). But, unlike all other termiticides, Termidor is lethal by contact as well. Once a termite comes into contact with Termidor, they carry it back to the colony on their bodies. Every other termite it contacts will itself become a carrier, contacting and infecting others. This is known as “The Transfer Effect”.

Termidor – 100% Results After 8+ Years.

With Termidor, termites are killed, dead. No excuses, and a lot less waiting around. Government and other tests in the US and abroad have shown that in 8 years there has been no break or reduction in Termidor’s effectiveness.

Termidor is a responsible, low dose treatment.

Termidor is effective at very low application rates. Typically, when your pest control professional applies Termidor, the active ingredient fipronil will be just 0.06%. That’s a lot lower than old-fashioned termiticides and less than most insecticides. Termidor also binds to the soil, so there’s no leaching through rainfall or irrigation.
