A level of efficacy that no other termite control system of any type has ever achieved. And, it is proving to be equally effective in keeping termites from coming back.

What makes Termidor different from other termite control option, such as bait systems?
Termidor utilizes a unique action known as the “Transfer Effect” to effectively eliminate termite populations up to six times faster than bait systems. An, unlike older liquids, Termidor does not repel termites, termites can’t smell, see or feel the insecticide, so they crawl freely through treated areas. When a termite eats or even comes in contact with the insecticide, it unknowingly transfers Termidor back to the colony on its body. Every termite it contacts will transfer Termidor to other termites. It is the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating termite populations up to six times faster than bait/monitoring systems. Baits can take from many months to several years to control a colony. That’s because many bait systems work by recruitment, in which termites must first discover a bait station and then recruit sufficient colony members to it as well. Only then is the termite control product added to the station. Plus, there’s no guarantee termites heading for or already in your home will find the bait stations and all. Termidor starts working immediately. (top)
What will a Termidor treatment cost?
The cost of a Termidor treatment varies and largely depends on your particular situation and the treatment plan you and your pest control company agree upon. In the long run, a Termidor treatment plan generally will cost less than a termite bait system and will provide more effective, longer lasting control. (top)
Is Termidor environmentally responsible?
Termidor is one of the most thoroughly reviewed control products in history. Termidor is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency and can only be applied by a pest control professional who has been trained in correct application methods. Termidor is incredibly effective even at low application rates.
It bonds to the soil in which it is applied, so homeowners need not worry about soil movement. In addition, Termidor’s active ingredient, fipronil, is used extensively on food crops around the world and as the leading product for flea and tick control on dogs and cats since 1995. Our advice?
