Termites can't avoid what they can't detect.
Termites are smart enough to stay well away from anything as deadly to them as Termidor - if only they knew it was there. But Termidor is a new technology liquid called non repellent or "undetectable." That means termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid it. Instead, they contact, ingest and share Termidor, completely unaware that doing so will inevitably kill them.
Termidor kills termites several ways.
When termites eat Termidor-treated material, they will die. But Termidor doesn't stop there. It kills termites by contact as well. And since termites can't detect its presence, termites directly ingest and contact Termidor as they go about their normal routines. This dual action alone sets Termidor apart from other termite control products. But Thermion's unique "Transfer EffectTM" elevates its effectiveness to a whole new level.
Better than other undetectable liquids.
Whenever a termite ingests or touches Termidor, it, in effect, becomes a "carrier," transferring Termidor to every other termite it comes in contact with. These termites in turn become secondary carriers, transferring Termidor to every termite they contact - and so on throughout the colony. Because Termidor is intentionally engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire population. This unique, spiraling process is called the "Transfer Effect" and it helps Termidor deliver devastating results that are unmatched by any other product, including other undetectables - 100% control in 3 months or less.
Better than older liquids, too.
Like many other termite control products, Termidor is a liquid - but that's where the similarities end. Many older liquid termite controls are repellents, which termites can not only detect, but also take great pains to stay away from and circumvent. In fact, given the tiny entry gaps that termites are able to find and easily fit through, it is virtually impossible to maintain a secure chemical repellent barrier around your home. Since Termidor is undetectable, termites neither avoid it nor try to find a way around it - which is what puts Termidor in a far more effective league of its own among liquid termiticides.
