Q&A Guide for Termidor Usage

TERMIDOR USAGE Q&A GUIDE FOR TERMITE TREATMENT


One of the most tested termite solutions in history
Before Termidor was made available to American homeowners through Termidor certified professionals, it was subject to some of the toughest tests in history. For seven years, grueling USDA-Forest Service ground board and concrete slab trials in four states tested Termidor. At every application rate and every last location, Termidor proved 100% effective.

Termidor - 100% Results After Seven Years
With Termidor, termites are killed, dead. No excuses, and a lot less waiting around. Government and other tests in the US and abroad have shown that in 7 years there has been no break or reduction in Termidor's effectiveness.

Termidor is a responsible, low dose treatment
Termidor is effective at very low application rates. Typically, when your pest control professional applies Termidor, the active ingredient fipronil will be just 0.06%. That's a lot lower than old-fashioned termiticides and less than most insecticides. Termidor also binds to the soil, so there's no leaching through rainfall or irrigation.

Will it kill all of the termites, or just some?
Termidor's unique mode of action achieves 100% control of termites in 3 months or less. This 'termite control' is not just limited to the termites who happen to forage in the soil treated with Termidor. Termites are social insects living in large nests, often underground. Our research has shown that termites foraging through treated soil come in contact with Termidor but do not die quickly, these contaminated termites contact others in the nest (by food transfer, grooming or just climbing over and rubbing against each other) and transfer Termidor to these other termites. No other termiticide or termite-control system has achieved the same level of efficacy as Termidor.

Can I apply it myself?
No. Termidor can and must only be applied by a Certified Termidor Professional.  

The active ingredient in Termidor is fipronil and it works quite differently from other termiticide active ingredients. Most termiticides are repellents, which means they keep termites away from a treated area, rather than killing them. These repellent termiticides also kill termites. However, since the termites are repelled when they come in contact or just before actually contacting pyrethroid treated soil, the 'killing power' is less dramatic and if anyone took the time to count dead termites, less efficient. Termidor is non-repellent. Termites can't detect it. Since they don't know it's there, they forage freely in a treated area.

Like other leading liquid termiticides, Termidor is lethal to termites when they ingest it (which they do readily since they don't know it's there). But, unlike all other termiticides, Termidor is lethal by contact as well. Once a termite comes into contact with Termidor, they carry it back to the colony on their bodies. Every other termite it contacts will itself become a carrier, contacting and infecting others. This is known as "The Transfer Effect".

Does Termidor have an odor?
No, Termidor is odor free.


Is Termidor safe?
The active ingredient in Termidor, fipronil, has been used since 1995 for flea and tick control on millions of cats and dogs. Termidor is fully approved by the EPA as well as other government authorities around the world.
