Termidor – The Townsville Homeowners Choice
Your Local Trusted Termidor Applicators
When dealing with a termite infestation, you need to make sure the termiticide you use is of high quality. Termidor is one of the most popular products used on subterranean termites, a very common species of termites in Queensland, Australia. At Pro Pest Control Townsville, we can help you reap all the benefits that Termidor has to provide.
What Is Termidor?
Termidor is a liquid termiticide that is frequently used by pest controllers to prevent or stop an ongoing termite infestation or prevent a future one from appearing. It can be used in various ways, such as through live spraying, the installation of a termite barrier, or refilling a termite reticulation system. Rather than repelling termites, Termidor is a product used for killing them instead.
How Does Termidor Work?
Unlike most termiticides that repel termites, Termidor is odour-free . Which makes it unnoticeable to termites. The active ingredient is Fipronil, which is a growth inhibitor. Upon ingestion, the termites will be unable to moult. A process necessary for them to reach maturity or simply age. If they do not moult, the termites will die.
Termidor also works through something called the “carrier/transfer effect.” Once a termite ingests the chemical, it will carry it to the colony, infecting other termites. This way, it will be able to kill the termite queen as well, preventing more eggs from being laid and hatched.
Termidor is an odourless and water-based product, which means that it won’t damage the surrounding environment. Whether it’s the air or the plants. The active ingredient of the termicide is also used in flea control for dogs, making it a safe option for your pet as well.
For the residents of Australia, where termite damage is very common on unprotected homes, Termidor offers something referred to as the “$2 million warranty.” This means that clients are insured for structural damage on the house up to that amount.
Bear in mind that in order for this warranty to apply, regular termite inspections need to be done. Moreover, the product must be applied by an Accredited Termidor Applicator. Once applied, the warranty will be in effect for the next 12 months, with early extensions after an inspection.
Our pest controllers are all accredited Termidor applicators. This means that we know precisely how to handle the termicide – thus, we’ll ensure that you get the most out of the product and the warranty.
