What makes Termidor the best termite treatment

A crucial advantage 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.

Take the Termite Test

Do you have any timber inside your home? E.g. Timber trusses in your roof, timber flooring.

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 devastating 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.

Termites spread in and around your home in areas and conditions that are conducive to termite activity. Water and leaks associated with faulty plumbing, broken roof tiles, leaking shower recesses and air conditioning drainage can all contribute to a build-up of moisture in the surrounding soil, creating perfect conditions for termites to spread.

Trees, shrubs and gardens adjacent to your home can result in an excess in roots, moisture and other organic matter, allowing termites to establish and gain access undetected into the foundations, expansion joints or other concealed entry points.

It is recommended that your home is inspected annually by a pest management professional to prevent the spread of termites. This not only identifies any termite activity in the structure, but will also ensure that any conducive conditions are identified so they can be rectified to reduce the risk of termites spreading to your home.
