The Pest Company are accredited applicators of Termidor & Termidor HE. We have completed hundreds of chemical applications using Termidor without any failures. We recommend Termidor for chemical treated zone applications and for live termite infestations.
We have found when it comes to treating live active termites, that using Termidor and a registered foaming agent or Termidor Dust we gain the elimination of live termite infestations in homes.
TPC® use Termidor for live active Termite treatments as it provides us with the confidence of knowing we have begun the first part of the Termite Management program on the front foot, however unless a full Termidor treated zone is installed around the property foundations (but not limited to) as per the Australian Standards AS3660, will the property be protected.
"Our 18 year experience in the pest industry and our Termidor accreditation is what provides the strength in the fight against Termites"
Feel you need even more confidence? Then rest assured we are accredited Termidor HE (High Efficiency) installers. Termidor HE is the best available termiticide on the market.
When drilling concrete paths, patios and tiles becomes a worry for home owners, then Termidor HE maybe the product you are looking for, however you'll need to get the basics on what the differences are between Termidor Residual Termiticide & Termidor HE when it comes to installing the product in accordance with the label and the price difference.
Termidor HE has numerous benefits that provides value for the home owner, however one main point most home owners are impressed by is the increased distance between the drill hole spacing's of the original "Termidor SC" (between 150 - 200mm, depending on soil conditions) compared to Termidor HE (350 - 450mm, depending on soil conditions), meaning less drill holes, especially if you have nice tiles.
The below images show how many holes are needed to be drilled for most applications using Termidor SC, where Termidor HE the hole spacing's are far wider, leaving a neater finish.
Life Expectancy of Termidor; Both Termidor SC and Termidor HE have a life expectancy of *8 years as listed on the label. Noting that the actual protection period is affected by factors such as Termite pressure, climatic and soil conditions and subsequent soil disturbance. Our experienced technicians will also point out any external or internal drainage concerns or leaks that are present during our first initial inspection and report carried out at the property.
Re Inspections - As with all chemical termiticides regular Termite Inspections are essential (at least annually) by a competent Termite Management Inspector who is licensed in Timber Pests as bridging and breaching of treated zones can occur. The need for re treatment should be determined as a result of these inspections.
Re Treatment - To re-establish the treated zone after the 8 year Period of Protection or depending on site conditions treatment maybe earlier, re-application at full rates is required.

Did you know, Termidor is a "Non Repellent Chemical"
Why is this important?
Termites travel with limited fear, they love moisture and food and they do whatever it takes to get it. Using a "Non Repellent Chemical" like Termidor is beneficial as Termites travel through the treated zone area with limited fear, however unknowingly transfer the chemical on to their body and transfer it to each by contact, grooming and exchanging of food that assists in preventing concealed termite entry, whilst increasing the chances of achieving colony elimination.
What is a "Repellent Chemical"?
A repellent chemical is designed to prevent termites gaining entry into the treated soil by forcing / repelling termites away from the chemical to protect a home from termite attack. Now we understand repellent Chemicals repel termites, we need to look at some of the limitations that may occur when dealing with unpredictable and determined termites that are smarter than we think.
Termites know if a repellent chemical is in its way, and by knowing this, they will bypass the chemical in the never ending search for food and moisture that could lead to termites trying other alternative ways to enter the home, this is why we use a "non" repellent chemical like Termidor due to its innovative non-repellent technology which provides The Pest Company with confidence.
We recommend Termidor as we have the results to prove it's success and the ongoing support provided by the manufacturer, BASF.
At TPC® We understand that not every chemical termiticide, even Termidor isn't suited for every situation as construction makes installations difficult, that's why The Pest Company have other options up our sleeve if needed!
