At ASSASSIN PEST CONTROL the termite protection that we favour is Termidor. These facts are why we recommend it to protect your home in Sydney, Australia.

  • Termidor is applied at very low rates. Typically, the active ingredient (Fipronil) is just 0.06% of the solution, a concentration much lower than that of older liquids and less than most insecticides.
  • Keep in mind, too, that since 1995, fipronil has been use around the world for flea and tick control on household pets and on agricultural crops to protect food supplies. And Termidor has virtually no odour, which means you and your family won't notice a thing. No better choice for termite defence.
  • Termidor is the only termite treatment that combines a unique mode of action, a long residual, and the ability to manage colonies faster than a baiting system.

Unique Advantages of Termidor:

  1. Australia's #1 termite defence with over 100,000 homes treated since 2000. Kills by ingestion, contact, and the "Transfer Effect," meaning affected insects help spread Termidor throughout the colony before dying themselves.
  2. Manages colonies up to 6 times faster than bait systems.
  3. Most effective termiticide – over 10 years of test data prove most effective and fastest at eliminating termite populations.
  4. Responsible, low-dose treatment, with no odour.
  5. Only trained, termite professionals can apply the product.

Termidor Termite Treatments

Until Termidor was released, protecting those homes involved chemicals that are repellent to householders as well as termites and which have to be applied in a perfect, unbroken barrier. Termidor has quickly established itself as the most effective and convenient protection for homes with no built-in barrier.

This type of termite protection doesn't depend on a repellent barrier and actually eliminates termites rather than just repelling them. This is because termites cannot detect Termidor. It has the added advantages of low toxicity and no odour. In fact, Termidor is a soil termiticide that does not require occupants to leave the house while the treatment is carried out.

The First Undetectable Termite Trap

Older chemical treatments create a repellent barrier that termites won't go through, but will try to find a way around. While they are usually effective, they have three main drawbacks; applying them creates a repulsive smell that lasts a day or two and can be difficult to live with; they deter termites, but do nothing to reduce the colony; and even a gap of a few centimetres in the barrier can cause the treatment to fail. Termidor supersedes those barriers with an extremely efficient in-ground trap that termites can't detect the Treated Zone. Far from being repelled by a barrier, termites forage into the Treated Zone and are killed in one of three ways:

  1. Termites that ingest or contact enough Termidor can be killed outright.
  2. Those that only receive a low dose of Temidor become dysfunctional. They stop feeding and grooming each other, neglect their environment, become diseased and die.
  3. Many affected termites find their way back to the colony. Other termites then receive a lethal dose through normal social interaction or cannibalism.

Long-lasting Protection

Since the launch of Termidor in 1998, over 100,000 homes have been successfully treated in Australia. Pest Managers using Termidor have found local call backs to be almost nonexistent, and there has not been a single product failure. Termites infested houses which were treated in pre-release trials from 1995 onwards, remained termite-free for at least seven years.

Minimal Environmental Impact

We all want to protect our most valuable assets and eliminate termites from our homes, and we want to do it with as little environmental impact as possible. Whereas the termiticides used as barriers are rated Schedule 6 POISON, Termidor is in the Schedule % CAUTION and is the only soil treatment that is not classified as hazardous according to the criteria of WorkSafe Australia.

Although Termidor is lethal to termites, its specific mode of action is much les hazardous for humans, pets and wildlife. Termidor has the same active ingredient as a market-leading veterinary product applied to cats and does to control fleas. The active ingredient is also widely used on food crops.

As well as being highly effective, it is also easier to live with during and straight after treatment. Studies have shown that it produces no airborne residues so it is possible to remain in the house while it is treated. With other soil treatments you must leave your home for a few hours.

The Termidor Termite Elimination Program

When it comes to protection your home from termites, you have too much to lose to rely on anyone other than an experienced pest Manager using this proven step by step approach:

  • A thorough inspection to find out whether termites are present, locate and teat their nest if possible, and identify likely trouble spots.
  • A check of the drainage and ventilation under and around your home and any other structures, with remedial action if necessary.
  • Application of Termidor to create a Treated Zone.
  • A follow-up inspection of the area within three months after treatment to make sure it has been successful.
  • Regular inspections at least annually as recommended by Australian Standard 3660.
