How does Termidor Work?
Termidor is applied to areas in and around the home where termites can be found, and begins working immediately to defend a home against them. Because of its advanced undetectable technology, termites can’t smell, see or feel it. Consequently, they forage freely in the treated zone, ingesting Termidor and getting it on their bodies.
Whenever a termite ingests or touches Termidor, the termite becomes a “carrier,” transferring Termidor to every other termite it contacts. These termites in turn become secondary carriers, transferring the termiticide to every termite they contact.
Because Termidor is slow acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire colony. This unique, spiraling process is called the “Transfer Effect™,” and it helps Termidor deliver devastating results unmatched by any other product.
Why should homebuilders choose Termidor for pre-construction termite control?
Although pre-construction termite treatments have generally been price-driven, today more pest professionals than ever are working with homebuilders to use premium products like Termidor for pre-construction termite prevention. Many custom and upscale homebuilders view a premium termite defense treatment like any other premium accessory or appliance installed in a home and are marketing it to homebuyers as a valuable property enhancement.
Builders are also recognizing that even a few “problem” termite homes can seriously damage their reputations, and, consequently, appreciate the value of using the best termite defense product.
In nationwide testing performed by the US Department of Agriculture Forest Service, Termidor has provided 100% control at all concrete slab and ground board testing sites since 1994. In these tests, no termites have ever penetrated Termidor-treated soil, and no damage has ever been noted through 10 years. This length of control is unmatched by any other commercially available termite defense.
