Termidor® for Termite Control

Termidor for termite control is available in two formulations, Termidor Dust® and Termidor Residual®, the perfect combination for both inside and outside your home, to ensure complete termite nest elimination and full protection from future termite attack.

Termidor Residual Termiticide

Termidor is applied as a continuous chemical soil zone around and under the home. Some termiticides are repellent and rely on keeping termites away from treated structures. While such products are toxic to termites, very few of the termites are actually killed before being repelled by the termiticide barrier. As a result, termites remain alive and actively seek gaps in the barrier in order to gain access to the building. They do this day after day, year after year until they find a way through.

Termidor is non-repellent to termites. This means that they cannot detect the product and will not avoid the treated area. As a result, termites continue to forage through the soil until they encounter Termidor and pick up a lethal dose.

Termidor Dust

Termidor Dust is the culmination of over 10 years research in Australia to find the perfect termite nest elimination product. Termidor Dust is applied by professional Pest Control Operators directly onto the termites, either inside your house or onto activity around the yard (trees, fences, etc).

Termidor Dust is also perfect for treating active termite bait stations. After treatment, the termites carry the dust particles on their bodies and eventually back to the nest (where ever that may be) via the unique Transfer Effect®. Extensive Australian research proves that it takes as little as two to four weeks for total termite elimination. This is much faster than expensive baiting systems and you will not require numerous visits from the Pest Control Operator to achieve success.

Transfer Effect

Thanks to Termidor’s unique Transfer Effect, termites don’t even need to ingest or contact Termidor in order to die from it. All they need to do is make contact with another termite that has already contacted or ingested Termidor. This is because termites that come into contact with Termidor collect it on their bodies. They then become carriers that spread Termidor to other termites and eventually back to the nest. Termites are social insects that live together in large colonies and feed and groom each other. The Transfer Effect makes most of this and it’s a key reason why no other termiticide performs as well as Termidor.

Termidor and the environment

When applied according to the label directions, the Termidor Inside-Out program has minimal impact on the environment. It is applied at some of the lowest doses of any of the termiticides available today, and the active ingredient has been registered in household pet products in Australia since 1996. Termidor has been assessed by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, and is fully approved for use in domestic and commercial situations. Termidor is water-based and has no odour, will not leach through soil and is not damaging to soil micro-organisms, earthworms and plants.

Summary

Termidor provides fast elimination and highly effective, long-term residual termite control.

With a unique mode of action, Termidor will not only eliminate the current activity (including the nest) but will provide proven protection against termite entry and will continue to control termites for at least eight years. When compared with other termiticides, Termidor has consistently provided termite control over a significantly longer period. Termidor also controls termite populations more rapidly than baiting systems which rely on attracting termites to begin to work.

Termidor can only be applied by a licensed pest control operator to ensure that the treatment is successful. For control of termites and peace of mind, insist on Termidor.
