We Use America's #1 Termite Defense

How Termidor Works

A little bit of Termidor goes a long way in treating your home
 
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. For an average home treatment, only about 8 ounces of the active ingredient is actually used. Keep in mind, too, that since 1995, fipronil has been used around the world for flea and tick control on household pets and on agricultural crops to protect food supplies. And Termidor has virtually no odor, which means you and your family won't notice a thing.

Advanced undetectable technology
Termidor is made from a revolutionary new nonrepellent or "undetectable" chemical technology treatment. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste or avoid Termidor. Instead they contact, ingest, and share it with their nestmates. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can finds breaks in or avoid completely.

How the transfer effect works, transferring termiticide from one termite to another.

How Termidor protects your home from termites

After Termidor is applied, termites that contact it transfer it to every other termite they in turn contact in a unique process called the "Transfer Effect." And because Termidor is engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire termite population.

Better than bait... without the wait
Baits can take years to control a termite colony. Termidor begins working immediately to wipe out termites inside and immediately surrounding your home. Termidor is the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating termite populations — up to six-times faster than bait systems.

No better choice for protecting your home against termites.
Termidor is the only termite defense that combines a unique mode of action, a long residual, and the ability to manage colonies faster than a baiting system all in a low-dose, low-odor formulation that meets the stringent standards of the Food Quality Protection Act. There simply is no better choice for termite defense. More info...

 Termite Prevention Tips

When it comes to gaining access to your home, termites are amazingly proficient. The last thing you want to do is make their job easier. Follow these 3 steps to effective Termite Defense and make sure that your home doesn't become their home. Contact Insecta X immediately.

Step 1: Get professional help

Small holes in wood, crumbling drywall, sagging doors or floors, insect wings, and small mud tubes are some of the more obvious potential signs of termites. But even if you don't notice any of these signs, that doesn't necessarily mean termites, or the conditions that invite them, aren't there.

Regular inspections by a licensed pest professional are the only way to ensure your home truly is, and remains, free from termites and the damage that they cause. Qualified pest professionals have the training in termite biology and behavior to identify, prevent, and treat termite problems. A pest professional will perform a thorough inspection of your home to determine if, where, and how termites are getting in. They can also explain how to correct any conditions in your home that invite termites.
For example:

  • Don't affix wooden trellises to exterior walls.
  • Keep mulch, wood debris, scrap lumber, sawdust, and firewood away from your home. If you do keep firewood outside your house during the winter, keep it raised off the ground.
  • Trim all shrubs, bushes and other dense greenery away from the foundation of your home. Move mulch away from the foundation as well.
  • Don't bury wood debris near your home.
  • Remove infested trees and stumps.
  • Repair leaking faucets and water lines, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Fix leaky roofs and gutters.
  • Don't allow leaves to accumulate in gutters and drains.
  • Grade soil so that water (including air conditioning condensate) runs away from foundations.
  • Ventilate crawl spaces and attics to reduce humidity.
  • Cover at least 90% of the soil in crawl spaces with plastic sheeting.
  • Ideally, wood siding, stucco, and foam board should be at least six inches away from the ground.
  • Seal all cracks and holes in your home's foundation, which may provide a handy access point for termites.

Step 2: Employ the best defense: Termidor™

If the inspection reveals termites, your pest professional can get rid of them and keep them from returning. If your home is currently free of termites, congratulations! Now, it's time for your pest professional to take preventative action to ensure it stays that way. For the fastest, most effective way to address either situation, your pest professional will recommend Termidor®, America's #1 Termite Defense Product.

Step 3: Schedule regular professional check-ups

A clean bill of health from a doctor today doesn't mean it's not important for you to get regular check-ups in the future. Your home after a Termidor treatment is no different. Regular check-ups by Insecta X will make sure Termidor continues to do its job, and that your home remains termite-free for as long as you live there.
