Termidor Termite Products

After reviewing customer feedback, ingredients, and technology of Termidor, we have given this insecticide 4.8 out of 5 stars. Professionals who have used this product rave about the effectiveness and customers are happy with the results they receive as a result of using Termidor.
We particularly like the fact that Termidor is odorless, tasteless, and colorless, which means it is not a repellent for any type of termite. The transfer technology can effectively take place if the termites don’t know they are ingesting something poisonous.
We could not give Termidor a full 5 out of 5 stars due to the fact that the active ingredient in the liquid (Fipronil) is deadly to honey bees, which is an endangered bee species. When a honey bee comes in contact with a treated flower, they will transfer the poison to their hive, effectively using the transfer technology that works so well to kill the termites to kill their entire hive.
Overall, this is a great product if you’re looking for a long-term and effective solution for your termite issues. After you complete the treatment using Termidor, you don’t have to worry about another treatment for years and years to come.

When you decide to purchase a home, you also decide to take on some of the toughest aspects of homeownership: pests. One of the most damaging pests to a home is the termite. Termites are small insects that attack your home’s wood surfaces/materials by eating through the wood to cause major damage to your home’s construction.
One of the requirements before you purchase a home is to have a termite inspection completed by a professional to ensure there are no issues prior to purchasing the home. However, there are times when termites can be undetected, or a termite infestation can take over your home months/years after your initial purchase.
When this occurs, it is vital that you treat the infestation immediately and take action to ensure your home is safe from any further structural damage. A great termite treatment defense is Termidor®. This insecticide, or termiticide, is a professional termite control product and packs a punch against native subterranean termites, Formosan termites, and drywood termites.
Like with many other pesticides used on ants and other small insects, Termidor uses a colorless, odorless, and tasteless liquid that termites cannot detect. This makes Termidor highly desirable as a protectant and defense against termite infestations! This review will help you decide if Termidor is the right choice for your termite treatment needs. Let’s take a further look at Termidor.
How Does Termidor Work?
Termidor is a highly-sought after insecticide that will allow for the complete elimination of termites that are present in your home’s wooden structures. After you apply Termidor to your infected areas (and other wood structures that don’t seem to be infested yet), the termites ingest the liquid on-site.
After the termites ingest the Termidor, they then carry the liquid back to their colony and share with the rest of the termites in the colony. This takes care of the infestation quickly and efficiently as it becomes an inside job completed by one of their own.
When Termidor is applied directly to termites/colonies, you will notice an immediate result. But even if you cannot treat the termites directly with Termidor, you can treat the area that you suspect is infested/shows signs of infestation, and the termites will take care of the rest.
Of course, there are different types of termites, so it is important that you find the right Termidor product for your specific type of termite infestation. If you have drywood termites, a professional can apply Termidor Dry to ensure that you are using the correct type of Termidor to effectively treat your infestation.
Undetectable By All Termites
Termidor is known for being odorless, colorless, and tasteless, which means that you will have no problem getting termites to come to the insecticide. Your termite professional may choose to treat the area in which the colony is located (if it can be found), or they may choose to apply it to affected areas.
Should they choose to apply it affected areas, the termites will come to the liquid poison and ingest it immediately. Because this termite control product is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, termites will not be repelled from the liquid. Instead, they will carry the liquid back with them to the colony to spread it effectively. This ensures that the termites will be eliminated quickly and efficiently.
Effective and Inexpensive in the Long Run
Even though Termidor must be applied by a professional termite specialist, it is one of the least expensive options compared to the amount of time it lasts in your treated areas. And, because it takes care of the colony with the transfer technology, your home will be protected from termites for years after the initial treatment and elimination. This is a huge plus for Termidor because it means you spend less money in the long run for longer protection.
External Contact Safe for Humans and Pets
Many different insecticides are extremely harmful to humans and pets, but Termidor is actually relatively safe when external contact is made. While it is not recommended to ingest Termidor, if ingestion does accidentally occur, it is only considered mildly toxic and can be treated with medication. This key feature is crucial for homeowners who may have infested areas that are exposed to outside elements (humans, pets, etc.).
Buying a home can be one of the scariest events in your life. Getting a termite inspection can be even scarier because the purchase of the home depends on the termite inspection. If you were to find that your home had termites (before or after purchase), getting the infested areas treated as soon as possible is the only way you’re going to have a chance to save your home.
You can be confident that your termite situation will be fully taken care of the first time, leaving you with little worry that you will have to treat again for a very long time. Because of the formula and transfer technology, using Termidor on your termite infestation will ensure that you eliminate the colony and effectively protect your home from any further attack and infestation.
It truly is a great choice for your termite needs. If you fear that your home has an infestation, make you it benefits from Termidor termite treatment today.
