How do termite control treatments kill termites?
One of the most tested termite solutions in history
Before Termidor was made available to American homeowners through Termidor Certified Professionals, it was subject to some of the toughest tests in history.The active ingredient in Termidor is fipronil. 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 contracting pyrethroid treated soil, the ‘killing power’ is less dramatic. And if anyone took the time to count dead termites, they’d find it less efficient. Termidor is non-repellent. Termites can’t detect it. Since they don’t know it’s there, they foray 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.”
