Customers worried about termite damage to their homes will often ask us what is the best product to protect their homes from termites. The answer is Termidor. Termidor is a professional termite treatment product that has been extremely effective for us for around 12 years now. Termidor utilizes an advanced non repellent liquid technology that is undetectable to termites. Instead of avoiding the treated areas, termites contact, ingest, and transfer Termidor through the termite colony, completely unaware that doing so will inevitably kill them.
While there are many products on the market for us to utilize to protect your home from termites no other product comes close to the over all performance of a Termidor termite treatment. We have used several products over the almost 40 years of our professional termite protection service. Before Termidor most companies were overwhelmed during termite swarm season which of course may seem like a good thing for a termite control company. But prior to switching to Termidor I would estimate that roughly 10% of our calls were homes currently under contract that were experiencing termites returning. This was extremely frustrating and all companies had to endure this. Once we made the switch our termite call backs and damage claims have almost disappeared. It is now extremely rare for us to find a re infestation of termites in homes we have under contract.
In our opinion the biggest benefits to using termidor have been.
- Very low rate of re infestation = very few call backs
- Label options that allow us to use the "perimeter plus" treatment method (less intrusive treatment)
- Very low odor and safe
- Long lasting residual and effectiveness (we currently offer 10 year warranties)
- Customers are familiar with the active ingredient (Fipronil) because it is the same active ingredient used in the #1 vet recommended flea treatment for Cats and Dogs "Frontline".
If your home is older than 10 years and you are not currently under a termite contract with a professional termite control company I highly recommend contacting one asap. The best value will usually be found with a local company that has been in business for at least 10-15 years and has a good Better Business Bureau rating.
