Most termites that infest a home or business are subterranean termites – meaning they live in colonies in the soil. They require moisture from the soil to survive and can travel hundreds of feet to reach a feeding site. When they are ready to eat, they come out of the soil looking for wood to feed on. The wood in your home is an easy target for termites, and they have the power to be massively destructive – termite damage totals over $5 billion dollars per year, according to the National Pest Management Association. As a home or business owner, you should be aware of the termite risk to your property, especially because most insurance policies do not cover termite damage.
Termites can’t avoid what they can’t detect.
Termites are smart enough to stay well away from anything as deadly to them as Termidor—if only they knew it was there. But Termidor is a new technology liquid called nonrepellent or “undetectable.” That means termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid it. Instead, they contact, ingest, and share Termidor, completely unaware that doing so will inevitably kill them.
Termidor kills termites in 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. This dual-action alone sets Termidor apart from other termite control products. But Termidor’s unique “Transfer Effect™” elevates its effectiveness to a whole new level.
Better than other undetectable liquids.
Whenever a termite ingests or touches Termidor, it, in effect, becomes a “carrier,” transferring Termidor to every other termite it comes in contact with. These termites in turn become secondary carriers, transferring Termidor to every termite they contact – and so on throughout the colony. Because Termidor is intentionally engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire population. This unique, spiraling process is called the “Transfer Effect” and it helps Termidor deliver devastating results that are unmatched by any other product, including other undetectables – 100% control in 3 months or less.
