It's not too good to be true.
It's just in a different league from every other termite solution on the planet.

Termites are a concern for homeowners in 49 of the 50 states. In any given year termites damage more homes than fire. The cost of termite damage is about twice that of storm damage.

One of the most tested termite solutions in history

Before Termidor* was made available to American homeowners, it was subject to some of the toughest tests in history. For six years, grueling USDA-Forest Service ground board and concrete slab trials in four states tested Termidor. At every application rate and every last location, Termidor proved 100% effective.

How Termidor's "Transfer Effect" works

The active ingredient in Termidor is fipronil and it works quite differently from other termiticide active ingredients. Most termiticides are repellents, which means they keep termites away from a treated area, rather than killing them. These repellent termiticides also kill termites. However, since the termites are repelled when they come in contact or just before actually contacting pyrethroid treated soil, the 'killing power' is less dramatic and if anyone took the time to count dead termites, less efficient. Termidor is non-repellent. Termites can't detect it. Since they don't know it's there, they forage freely in a treated area.

Like other leading liquid termiticides, Termidor is lethal to termites when they ingest it (which they do readily since they don't know it's there). But, unlike all other termiticides, Termidor is lethal by contact as well. Once a termite comes into contact with Termidor, they carry it back to the colony on their bodies. Every other termite it contacts will itself become a carrier, contacting and infecting others. This is known as "The Transfer Effect".

Termidor - 100% Results After Six Years

With Termidor, termites are killed, dead. No excuses, and a lot less waiting around. Government and other tests in the US and abroad have shown that in 6 years there has been no break or reduction in Termidor's effectiveness.

Bottom line, you can count on at least 5 year's worth of 100% termite protection when you choose Termidor.

Termidor is a responsible, low dose treatment

Termidor is effective at very low application rates. Typically, when it is applied Termidor, the active ingredient fipronil will be just 0.06%. That's a lot lower than old-fashioned termiticides and less than most insecticides. Termidor also binds to the soil, so there's no leaching from rainfall or irrigation.

FAQs

Question:
What makes Termidor different from other termite treatments?

Answer:
Termites can't detect it. They forage freely in a treated area. Termidor is lethal to termites that ingest or contact it. A termite carries it back to the colony and infects every other termite they contact.


Question:
How fast will Termidor work once applied properly to a home?

Answer:
In every test, Termidor has achieved 100% control of termites within three months or less. That's significantly faster than termite baiting systems, which typically take six to 18 months to control termites.


Question:
How long does Termidor last once applied?

Answer:
Time and again, Termidor is proven to have staying power. In numerous tests, Termidor continued to provide 100% control of termites for at least five years.


Question:
Does Termidor have/leave an odor?

Answer:
No, Termidor is odor-free.
