What makes Termidor the BEST Treatment
A crucial advantage that Termidor has over many other products is that it doesn’t repel termites.
Termites are able to detect the older chemicals in the soil and stay away from them. That means the termites remain active and unaffected, still exploring the area and potentially looking for ways into your home.
Termites can’t detect Termidor so, as they continue to forage through the soil, they unknowingly come into contact with Termidor.
Termidor kills termites through contact and ingestion.
Because they can’t detect Termidor, termites are not aware of ingesting the product when they eat. They go about their routine activities and will still be killed by contact with Termidor even when they are not feeding.
The Genuine Termidor Transfer Effect™
Another key advantage of termites’ inability to detect Termidor is that they carry it back to the nest on their bodies and pass it on to other termites – the Genuine Termidor Transfer Effect.
Termites are social insects that live together in large colonies and feed and groom each other. So termites that have come into contact with Termidor soon pass it on to others. Even those secondarily affected termites can also pass Termidor on through feeding or contact.
Termidor can control whole termite populations faster than any other treatment, but it is relatively slow-acting in individual termites. This means termites have ample time before dying to spread Termidor to their nest, and the entire colony.
Termidor Products and Treatments
Termidor Residual Termiticide for a Chemical Soil Treated Zone - is applied as a continuous chemical soil zone around and under the home.
Termidor is non-repellent to termites. Therefore, they cannot detect the product and will not avoid the treated area. As a result, termites continue to randomly forage through the soil until they encounter Termidor and pick up a lethal dose.
Termidor moves only a small distance outward from the site of application before binding tightly to organic matter in the soil. This means that Termidor concentration decreases with increasing distance from the site. Termites first come into contact with Termidor at the edge of the treated zone as they tunnel through the soil towards the home. At this point, the product is at its lowest concentration. Those termites that do not immediately continue tunnelling into the Termidor treated zone will survive long enough to transfer Termidor to others in the colony through normal feeding and grooming.
This unique Transfer EffectTM is devastating to other termites not directly exposed to the Termidor treated zone, and indeed may wipe out the entire colony. If termites continue to tunnel into the treated soil where Termidor concentration is higher, they will die more quickly. This means that Termidor is two termite treatments in one.
Termidor Dust - is applied by professional Pest Control Operators directly on to the termites, either inside your house or onto activity around your home (trees, fences etc).
This is much faster than expensive baiting systems and you will not require numerous visits from the Pest Control Operator to achieve success.
Termidor Foam - has been specifically formulated as a dry foam which holds in place. It will work through intricate termite workings and carton material without dissipating and turning to water like other foams can.
