Termites are very stubborn pests that can do a lot of damage if left to their own will. There are a variety of treatment options, but one of the most recommended solutions is Termidor because of its ability to control infestations, its effectiveness against termites and other pests and the fact that it won’t harm the surrounding soil or plants. What makes this type of treatment so effective is that it has the unique “Transfer Effect” that allows the pesticide to be transferred to the termites from the soil without them tasting, smelling or feeling the treatment.
Let’s take a closer look at how it works.
How Termidor Works
Since termites don’t suspect the main ingredient in Termidor, they crawl through it and become carriers of the insecticide. They begin passing the ingredient to other members of the colony through everyday tasks such as grooming and feeding. It doesn’t matter how termites come into contact with the active ingredients in Termidor; once they do, it’s an end-all for them. That’s why Termidor says that all termites will be wiped out within 90 days. If you live in an area with a high termite problem, ask your neighbors if they would be interested in Termidor. The more coverage, the better.
Why We Love Termidor
So, what exactly makes Termidor such a great option when compared to do it yourself termite treatment methods? The first difference is the Transfer Effect that we discussed, which other pesticides lack because they can be sensed by termites. Once these active ingredients are detected by the termites, they will be sure to relocate their colony and avoid coming into contact with the traps.
Another benefit of Termidor is that it begins working immediately, which means your problems are addressed immediately, and within 3 months, you will be free of termites. Best of all, it’s not 98 or 99 percent of termites that are gone – it’s 100 percent, guaranteed.
And if you do business with Dugas Pest Control, you can relax knowing you will receive our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!
Is Termidor Safe for the Family?
One of the most common questions we get with any type of pest control treatment is, “Is this treatment safe for my family?” That’s a great question, since the majority of our customers have pets or children that regularly play outside the home.
Thankfully, Termidor is a very safe termite control option for the family, and is one of the most routinely reviewed and tested insecticides. It’s used in over 1 million homes, and the product is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency. Termidor was tested in labs for 9 long years before it was used in homes, and we know a lot about the main ingredient, fipronil. This ingredient has been used for over 20 years to keep crops safe from fleas, ticks and other pests.
Can I Administer Termidor on My Own?
Termidor is a product that can only be administered by a professional, and not just any landscape expert. The company must be officially certified, which is why you should always check the qualifications of your landscape expert. This certification means that your landscape professional received adequate training on the product and has passed a certification test.
Dugas Pest Control is a Termidor Certified Pest Professional in Baton Rouge, and we’re able to administer the entire treatment in one day or less. We always tell our customers not to worry if they continue to see termite activity for the first few days. The termites will remain active until the Termidor starts killing off the termites, and it will start to work through ingestion, grooming and contact. While Termidor can certainly be an effective long-term solution, you should have your home regularly inspected for termite activity.
The Cost of Termidor
It’s hard to believe that anyone would choose anything other than Termidor when the facts are loud and clear: Termidor is the most effective treatment for killing termites. To us, it’s best to do it right the first time around and get your home termite free with Termidor.
