Trenching & Rodding
Termidor is America's #1 termite defense against drywood termites and subterranean termites. No other termite treatment system of any type has ever achieved such a high level of efficacy.
How does Aloha Termite apply Termidor to my home?
Aloha Termite & Pest Control, a Termidor Certified Professional, will apply a liquid dilution of Termidor along the foundation walls of your home to create a continuous treatment zone. The application method is called "trenching and rodding," and may sometimes require drilling holes into the concrete foundation of your home for maximum protection. Aloha Termite may also treat the interior of your home, depending on the extent of the termite infestation and damage.
How Termidor protects your home from termites?
After Termidor is applied, termites that contact it transfer it to every other termite they in turn contact in a unique process called the "Transfer Effect." And because Termidor is engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire termite population.
How fast will Termidor work?
Termidor has consistently shown to provide 100% control of subterranean termites up to six times faster than termite bait/monitoring systems.
Better than bait... without the wait
Baits can take years to control a termite colony. Termidor begins working immediately to wipe out termites inside and immediately surrounding your home. Termidor is the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating termite populations — up to six-times faster than bait systems.
What makes Termidor different from other termite control options, such as bait systems?
Termidor utilizes a unique action known as the "Transfer Effect" to effectively eliminate termite populations up to six times faster than bait systems. And, unlike older liquids, Termidor does not repel termites, termites can't smell, see or feel the insecticide, so they crawl freely through treated areas. When a termite eats or even comes in contact with the insecticide, it unknowingly transfers Termidor back to the colony on its body. Every termite it contacts will transfer Termidor to other termites. Termidor is the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating termite populations up to six times faster than bait/ monitoring systems. Baits can take from many months to several years to control a colony. That's because many bait systems work by recruitment, in which termites must first discover a bait station and then recruit sufficient colony members to it as well. Only then is the termite control product added to the station. Plus, there's no guarantee termites heading for or already in your home will find the bait stations at all. Termidor starts working immediately.
Advanced undetectable technology
Termidor is made from a revolutionary new nonrepellent or "undetectable" chemical technology treatment. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste or avoid Termidor. Instead they contact, ingest, and share it with their nestmates. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can finds breaks in or avoid completely.
Where can I buy Termidor?
Termidor cannot be directly purchased or applied by homeowners. Only licensed pest control professionals who have taken Termidor Certification Training are authorized to purchase and apply Termidor.
