Termidoris 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
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
Small piles of sawdust
Mud tubes built for travel
Damaged or hollow sounding
Pinholes in wall or wallpaper
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.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Where can I buy the best pest
control products? Residual pesticides that are the most effective cannot be directly
purchased or applied by homeowners. Only licensed pest control
professionals are authorized to purchase and apply them for the safety
of the community and environment. All Guard only uses the most
effective treatments that are a the same time environmentally friendly.
How fast will it work? Generally pest control treatments take at least 2-4 weeks to provide
protection of your home. Termite protection of subterranean termites
where found to be up to six times faster than termite bait/monitoring
systems in scientifically controlled tests.
Can your treatments be used for
both residential and commercial buildings? Yes, our pest & termite professionals can treat most any type of
structure that is at risk for pest & termite damage, including
residential homes, churches, office buildings and schools.
How long will it take to complete
an application? A residential application is typically completed by a trained,
accredited technician in less than an hour for pest control and less
than a day for most termite protection treatments.
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.
Is it environmentally responsible? Yes, it is one of the most thoroughly reviewed termite products in
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 rates.
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.
