Termidor FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Does Termidor smell?
Termidor has virtually no odor.
How effective is Termidor?
In trials across the United States and around the world, Termidor has proven 100% effective in eradicating termites in three months or less.
How does Termidor work?
Termites feed each other primarily by passing food from mouth to mouth. They groom each other. They contact each other as they forage for food. Termidor takes advantage of these social behaviors. Termidor kills termites through ingestion, contact, and through “The Transfer Effect™.” The active ingredient in Termidor (fipronil) is slow acting and allows the termite to continue its normal routine. But the termite remains active long enough to transfer the termiticide to a large number of other termites in the colony before dying itself.
How is Termidor different than other options like bait systems?
Termidor utilizes a unique action known as the "Transfer Effect" to control termite colonies up to six times faster than bait/monitoring systems. Termidor does not repel termites. Since they can't smell, see, or feel the termiticide, they crawl freely through the treated areas and carry Termidor back to the colony.
What is "The Transfer Effect"?
Once a termite has ingested or contacted Termidor-treated material with its body, it becomes a "carrier." Every termite it contacts will be infected, and will in turn every termite it contacts. But Termidor works slowly, letting termites contact many others before dying themselves. Although the Termidor effect on individuals is intentionally slow, the overall colony management is fast. It can be up to 6 times faster than bait systems.
Is Termidor really better than other termiticides?
Yes, Termidor has consistently show exceptional results in more that 800,000 homes treated throughout the United States since its launch in March 2000. In over eight years of field trials with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service, Termidor has eliminated 100% of subterranean termites in all tests.
How can I buy Termidor?
Sorry, it not sold to homeowners. Termidor is only sold to licensed pest control professionals like Alexander who have completed Termidor Certification Training.
How will Termidor be applied to my house?
Termidor is a liquid that is applied after it is diluted and mixed with water. Termidor is applied along the foundation walls of the home to create a continuous treatment zone. The application method is called "trenching and rodding" and may sometimes require drilling holes into the concrete foundation of the home for maximum protection. Interior treatment of the home may also be required, depending on the extent of the termite infestation and damage.
Who makes Termidor?
Termidor is a product of BASF.
