What is Termidor?

Termidor is a professionally applied termite defense product that is undetectable to drywood and subterranean termites. Since its introduction, over 3.75 million homes have been protected with Termidor, making it America’s #1 termite defense product.


What types of termites does Termidor control?

Termidor controls Subterranean termites, including the extremely destructive Formosan Subterranean termites, Dampwood termites and Drywood termites.


Through the years, other products have promised homeowners protection from termites. How can homeowners be sure that Termidor works?

Termidor is made from a revolutionary nonrepellent or “undetectable” chemical technology. In numerous trials across the United States and around the world, Termidor has consistently proven itself to be the most effective and fastest at eliminating termites—a level of efficacy that no other commercially available termite control system of any type has ever achieved. And, Termidor is proving to be equally effective in keeping termites from coming back.

Ongoing field trials by the United States Department of Agriculture – Forest Service show no signs of termite damage in covered slab plots treated with Termidor WG at labeled rates for more than 14 years after treatment—results no other commercially available termite control product can match.


Where can I buy Termidor?

Termidor cannot be directly purchased or applied by homeowners. Only licensed pest control professionals who have taken Termidor Certification Training are authorized to purchase and apply Termidor. You can find a Termidor Certified Professional in your area using our online locator.


How does a professional apply Termidor to my home for termites?

A Termidor Certified Professional will apply a liquid dilution of Termidor along the foundation walls of your home to create a continuous treatment zone. The application method is called “trenching” or “trenching and rodding,” and may sometimes require drilling holes through slabs or other hard surfaces adjacent to the foundation of your home for maximum protection. Your Termidor Certified Professional may also treat conducive or termite active areas from the interior of your home, depending on the extent of the termite infestation and damage. Depending on your situation, a minimally disruptive Termidor treatment along the exterior perimeter (PerimeterPLUS™) of your home may be all the protection your home will need.


How fast will Termidor work to eliminate termites?

Termidor applied according to label directions has provided 100% control of infesting termites in three months or less after treatment.


Can Termidor be used for both residential and commercial buildings?

Yes, Termidor Certified Professional can offer termite protection to most any type of structure that is at risk for termite damage, including residential homes, churches, office buildings, commercial businesses, warehouses, manufacturing sites and schools.


How long will it take to complete a Termidor termite treatment?

A residential Termidor termite treatment is typically completed by a trained Termidor Certified Professional in less than a day, offering your home or building termite protection that begins immediately.


Will Termidor have or leave an odor?

No, Termidor has virtually no odor.


What makes Termidor different from other termite control options?

Like many other termite control products, Termidor termiticide/insecticide is a liquid—but that’s where the similarities end. Among liquid termiticides, Termidor is the most effective. That’s because Termidor is undetectable so termites neither avoid its treatment zone nor try to find a way around it.

Some nonrepellent liquids claim to be “nearly,” “virtually,” or “almost” as effective, but the difference between “almost as good as Termidor” and Termidor itself can make all the difference in the world when it comes to protecting your home from termites.


How much will a Termidor termite treatment cost?

The cost of a Termidor termite treatment varies and largely depends on your particular situation, the treatment plan and service package you and your pest control professional agree upon.


Is it real-world proven?

Termidor is one of the most thoroughly reviewed termite control 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. Termidor is incredibly effective even at low application rates and bonds to the soil in which it is applied, so homeowners need not worry about leaching of the product. Termidor is applied with water, is not a petroleum based material and will not cause harm to plants adjacent to the areas of application.
