Award Winner 2003 Termidor Termite Control Product - on the grounds of proven effectiveness, safety and environmental considerations. Termidor represents a quantum leap in termite control technology available in USA, Japan, France and Australia.

Termidor is used for soil barrier treatment at the base of a building to prevent termite entry into the building AND by a unique delayed transfer effect can eliminate termite colony nests surrounding the building. Termidor has been tested in the USA for more than 8 years with outstanding results.

termite control Most other alternative termiticides are repellents - they keep termites away from a treated soil area around the base of the building. This means any gap in the barrier can be detected by the termites, to enable their entry into the building. With Termidor, the termites cannot detect the termiticide chemical in the soil as it has no odour, taste or smell to the termites. The dual action effect of Termidor is a proven winner to make Termidor the best termite control product on the global market.

Termidor has a unique dual-action effect

Termites tunneling in the Termidor treated soil area abutting the building (of higher Termidor concentration levels - near the point of application) are killed outright, within a few hours.
Termites unknowingly tunneling in the outer parts of a Termidor treated soil area (of lower Termidor concentration) cannot detect the Termidor chemical which sticks to their bodies and has a delayed lethal effect of a few days - enough time to be transferred back to the central colony nest.

The affected termites spread the Termidor chemical to other termites during regular physical contact, particularly when working together in close proximity, grooming and feeding other termite colony members.
Termites are an ancient insect with a 250 million year history. They have evolved a very thin waxy skin (called an exoskeleton). Termidor is designed to stick to the termite and be slowly absorbed into the termite's body, in order to kill the affected termites within a few days.

Termites often cannibalise or carry away other dead termites, further spreading the deadly effect of the Termidor chemical to other termite colony members.
