Termidor® termiticide/insecticide is a professional defense product effective on ants, native subterranean termites, Formosan termites, and drywood termites. It utilizes an advanced nonrepellent, or “undetectable,” liquid technology that insects cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid. Instead, they contact, ingest, and share Termidor, completely unaware that doing so will inevitably kill them.
Termidor has been proven to be the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating problem ant populations. It has changed the way pest management professionals are approaching ant control. Chances are that the ants in your house actually have their nest outside they travel back and forth for food and water. So, since they live outside, it makes sense to control them there. Termidor Ant Control is applied to the exterior foundation walls of your house, creating a treated area of protection. In the past several years, the professional pest control industry has been revolutionized by new control technologies, especially in the area of nonrepellents or “undetectable” liquid treatments. Unlike older insecticides, undetectables can’t be smelled, tasted, or even felt by pests. So they crawl through the treated area, not knowing that by ingesting treated materials or merely contacting the insecticide, they’ll die.

Q. Which Termidor products are registered for general pest control, eg. cockroaches, ants, etc?

Q. How are the above Termidor products properly used indoors for general pest control?
A. Applications to exposed interior surfaces, such as flooring, walls, or baseboards, are not permitted with Termidor. However, Termidor foam applications may be made in wall voids to control pests referenced on the label.
Q: If ants are trailing from a home to an area in the middle of a yard, is treatment along the entire ant trail approved?
A: No. The Termidor label only permits treatment of ant trails and nests within one (1) foot up and one (1) foot out from the base of the structure foundation or on the structure itself. Treating greater than 1 foot away from the house will increase the possibility of runoff of Termidor to nearby water bodies.
How does a professional apply Termidor to my home for ants and other general pests?
Termidor is applied outside to the exterior foundation of your house, creating a treated area of protection.
The effects of Termidor should begin within one to three days and most pests will be controlled within the first week following the treatment.
Will Termidor have or leave an odor?
No, Termidor has virtually no odor.
