This product is America’s #1 choice for conventional termite treatments. Our staff experts are specifically trained to use this product to eliminate termite colonies. It has been used for years around exterior perimeters and it clings to the soil it’s applied to. Termites don’t know it’s there and will be eliminated by eating material treated with Termidor as well as by transfer of the ingested material from other termites in the colony. We place the product on the outside so that it will cling to the soil. It is undetectable by termites which means that they do not recognize it as a threat and will not avoid it. Once Termidor is ingested by termites, they become carriers and will infect the rest of the colony
Termidor utilizes an advanced nonrepllent or “undectable”, liquid technology. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid it. Instead, they contact, ingest, and share Termidor, completely unware that doing so will inevitably kill them.
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. This dual action sets Termidor apart from most other termite control products. But the unique Termidor “Transfer Effect” elevates its effectiveness to a whole new level.
Whenever a termite ingests or touches Termidor, it can become a “carrier”, transferring Termidor to other termites it contacts. These termites in turn can become secondary carries, behaving normally while they transfer Termidor to other termites they contact, spreading it like a virus throughout the colony. Termidor is formulated to give individual termites ample time to transfer it to others in the population before they die. This unique, spiraling process is called the “Transfer Effect”, and it helps deliver devastating results to termites in order to maximize protection of your home.
A termite colony is like a vast, dynamic city, focused on growth and expansion. The colony has a sophisticated caste system and can contain millions of termites, all working together to turn your home into a giant buffet. Here’s who you may be unwittingly inviting over to dine:
The pair of reproductive termites that successfully establishes a new colony is called the king and queen. The queen’s sole purpose is to reproduce, laying thousands of eggs every year. Some live for as long as 30 years.
These blind, wingless termites make up the largest caste and are the most likely to be found in infested wood. They build, repair, forage for food, and care for other termites. Workers can molt into nymphs or soldiers.
Nymphs are newly hatched termites that have not yet assumed a colony. They can molt into different castes; workers, primary reproductive, or supplementary reproductive.
Soldiers are sterile, wingless, and blind. Their sole function is to defend the colony.
These termites can leave the colony and swarm to a new location, where they shed their wings and pair up to start new colonies.
