There is no product on the market at the moment which works with the efficacy of Termidor. Some other products may claim to work as well as Termidor but there is a reason why this product has remained the benchmark.
The manufacturer, BASF, has done extensive testing in Australia and the USA and has demonstrated the product to be effective for up to eight years if applied correctly.
So why is Termidor so good?
Simply, because it is non-repellent and the termites cannot detect it in the ground. Termites tunnelling through the higher concentrations of Termidor in the soil nearer the treated building, the treatment zone, are killed rapidly – dying in a few hours.
Termites crawling or tunnelling through lower concentrations of Termidor further from the building, carry the chemical on their bodies back to the nest, transferring it to other termites during grooming, feeding or close physical contact.
Termites clean up their dead by cannibalising or carrying away the dead bodies. This results in further spread of the Termidor protection and can result in eventual eradication of the termite colony.
Termidor has become the termite treatment of choice for many homeowners in South East Queensland for a good reason. It works.
