How a Termidor® Termite Treatment Works
To control subterranean termites, a liquid Termidor® termiticide/insecticide termite treatment is applied with precision along the foundation walls or exterior perimeter of your home. The treatment uses time-tested application methods at very low rates. It is virtually odor free and won’t cause any disruption to your family’s normal routines.
Termidor® binds tightly to the soil to create the “Termidor Zone.” Since this protective termite treatment zone is undetectable to termites, termites can’t avoid it and will not try to find a way around it (as they can with repellent termite treatments).
To control drywood termites, your pest professional may apply Termidor® DRY Termiticide directly into termite galleries to treat drywood termites and termites in structures or objects not connected to your home. Unlike liquid applications, Termidor® DRY does not add moisture to wood.
Termidor® Kills and Controls Termites Several Ways
When termites eat Termidor® treated material, they will die. But Termidor® doesn’t stop there. It kills termites by contact as well. And since termites can’t detect its presence, termites directly ingest and contact Termidor® as they go about their normal routines.
The Unique Termidor® Transfer Effect™
Whenever a termite touches Termidor®, it can become a “carrier,” transferring Termidor® to other termites it contacts. Secondary carriers continue transferring Termidor® to other termites they contact, spreading it like a virus throughout the colony. This unique “Transfer Effect™” is one of the reasons no other termite treatment can control termites like Termidor®.
