Termidor® termiticide/insecticide is a professional termite control product that is effective on native subterranean termites and Formosan termites. What makes Termidor so effective is its advanced nonrepellent, or “undetectable,” liquid technology that termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid. Instead, they contact, ingest, and share Termidor, completely unaware that doing so will inevitably kill them.
How a Termidor Treatment Works
To eliminate subterranean termites, a liquid Termidor® termiticide/insecticide termite treatment is applied with precision along the foundation walls or exterior perimeter of your home. The treatment uses time-tested application methods at very low rates. It is virtually odor free and will not cause any disruption to your family’s normal routines.
Termidor binds tightly to the soil to create the “Termidor Zone.” Since this protective termite treatment zone is undetectable to termites, termites cannot avoid it and therefore will not try to find a way around it (something they could do if other repellent termite treatments are used).
Termidor Kills and Controls Termites 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.
The Unique Termidor “Transfer Effect™”
Whenever a termite touches Termidor, it can become a “carrier,” meaning it will transfer Termidor to other termites it contacts. Secondary carriers continue to transfer Termidor to other termites they come in contact with, spreading it like a virus throughout the colony. This unique “Transfer Effect™” is one of the reasons no other termite treatment can control termites like Termidor does.
Checkups Are Recommended
Regular follow-up inspections and monitoring are the most important keys to maintaining your Termidor protection and ensuring termite control over time. Island Pest Control may place monitoring devices around your home to detect potential new termite threats. Thorough inspections will also ensure that the Termidor Zone hasn’t been disrupted by subsequent home improvements, alterations, or landscaping you may choose to have done.
With Island Pest Control and America’s #1 termite defense working together to protect your home, termites and the costly damage they cause won’t be something you ever have to worry about again. Termidor is truly the best option for termite control because it eliminates present termites but also prevents future termite damage through its unique transfer effect.
Why is Termite Control Important?
Unfortunately, due to their ability to make their way into extremely small spaces, the presence of termites often goes undetected, and the damage they cause might not become apparent until it is quite significant. Termites can enter homes and other buildings in many unexpected ways. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. With a treatment so simple and effective as Termidor, there really is no question that it is the most effective termite control method.

Fun Facts About Termites
Although we tend to shy away from anything having to do with termites, you may wonder what purpose, if any, they serve. Termites actually speed up the process of dead tree deterioration, which allows new trees to begin growing faster. They also never sleep and are found in all 50 states except Alaska. That means that the potential for termite control issues exists just about everywhere.
