Termidor is applied at very low rates. Typically, the active ingredient (fipronil) is just 0.06% of the solution, a concentration much lower than that of older liquids and less than most insecticides.
It is the only termite treatment that combines a unique mode of action, a long residual, and the ability to manage colonies faster than a baiting system.
Why use smelly, dangerous pesticides when there are much safer alternatives for you and your family?
Why Bother about Termite Inspections? There are about 2000 known species throughout the world. In
Australia., the Subterranean species, which build underground nests, are a concern
in every state except Tasmania. They are extremely destructive,
because they tunnel their way to wooden structures (like your home), into which
they burrow to obtain food. Termites all share a virtually insatiable appetite
for wood and other cellulose-containing materials. Given enough time, they will
feed on the wood until nothing is left but a shell.
Those "Ants" Might be Termites Both have two pairs of wings, but ants' wings are different
sizes while termite's wings are all the same size. Also, ants have narrowed
waists and elbowed antennae while termites have thick waists and short, straight
antennae that resemble strings of beads. Don't be fooled by colour or size. Ants
can vary in size, and winged termites can be brown or black like ants.
Look for Signs You're more likely to discover you have a white-ant problem by discovering the
evidence they leave behind rather than the actual insects themselves. If you
encounter any of these telltale signs, there's a good chance termites are busy
snacking on your home:
Piles of small, delicate wings shed
Small piles of sawdust
Mud tubes built for
travel above ground
Damaged or hollow sounding wood
Pinholes in wall or wallpaper
Of course, it's quite possible to have a hidden problem even if you
never notice any of these signs. The best way to be sure is to contact a
licensed pest control professional to conduct a complete inspection of your
home. A Professional will be able to determine if you have termites and
recommend the best course of action for eliminating them quickly and completely.

Will it have or leave an odour? No, our low toxic pesticides and Termidor are odour-free.
What makes Termidor different from other options, such as bait
systems? Termidor utilizes a unique action known as the "Transfer Effect" to effectively
eliminate termite populations up to six times faster than bait systems. And,
unlike older liquids, Termidor does not repel termites, termites can't smell,
see or feel the insecticide, so they crawl freely through treated areas. When a
termite eats or even comes in contact with the insecticide, it unknowingly
transfers Termidor back to the colony on its body. Every termite it contacts
will transfer Termidor to other termites. It is the most effective and fastest
at completely eliminating termite populations up to six times faster than bait/
monitoring systems. Baits can take from many months to several years to
eradicate a colony.
What will a treatment cost? The cost of a Termidor treatment varies and largely depends on your particular
situation and the treatment plan you and your pest control company agree upon.
In the long run, a Termidor treatment plan generally will cost less than a
termite bait system and will provide more effective, longer lasting protection.

history. Termidor is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency and can
only be applied by a pest control professional who has been trained in correct
application methods. It has proven to be incredibly effective even at low application
It bonds to the soil in which it is applied, so homeowners need not worry about
soil movement. In addition, Termidor's active ingredient, fipronil, is used
extensively on food crops around the world and as the leading product for flea
and tick control on dogs and cats since 1995.
