Termidor has a life expectancy of 8 years as indicated on the label. * In ideal Conditions
Termidor not only has 8 years life expectancy on the label it is a "Non Repellent Chemical"
Why is this important ? - Termites travel with limited fear, they love moisture and food and they do what ever it takes to get it.
"Non Repellent Chemical" - Termites travel through the Treated zone area, once a single termite comes into contact with Termidor, it will unknowingly transfer Termidor on its body to other termites it makes contact with which increases the chances of achieving colony elimination.
"Repellent Chemical" - Termites are repelled by the chemical
Repellent Chemicals repel Termites which is great, right! - But what if the Termites are smarter than we think!! and they avoid the treated areas and continue searching for a weakness in the barrier, like a crack in the slab and an unknown area not treated that maybe well beneath the ground.
Real facts, Termites know if a repellent chemical is in its way, knowing this they by pass the chemical in the never ending search for food and moisture, basically they will never stop looking for a way in for a feed. If the barrier is in perfect condition then can we rest assure!! Maybe not as termites only need a few millimeters of soil not treated correctly for example - When drilling into concrete and injecting chemicals for protection of the home, there can be limitations like rocks, hard clay, soil types that all place risk on the barrier. Voids in particular in the soil play havoc with Chemical Barriers, that's why we recommend Termidor for that added support.
We recommend Termidor as it is a non repellent Treated Zone, where termites can't detect Termidor due to its innovative non-repellent technology which provides The Pest Company with confidants.
We also understand that not every chemical is suited for every application, that's why The Pest Company provide options in Termite Management which involves a few options when it comes to making a selection.
Termidor is noted to have a transfer effect from one Termite to another and so on, which is achieving great results in Termite Management.
THE PEST COMPANY - Accredited applicators of Termidor & Termidor HE
The Pest Company are accredited operators of Termidor. The Pest Company have completed hundreds of Chemical applications using Termidor without any failures. We Recommend Termidor for Chemical Barrier applications and live infestations.
We have found that with the use of Termidor and a registered foaming agent combined together and or Termidor dust we gain elimination from infestations in homes. The product provides confidants, however without technical know how and experience in treating live termites, Termidor like any product is limited in the wrong hands.
A live active treatment even using Termidor does not protect the home unless a full treated zone is installed around the property as per the Australian Standards AS3660.
Feel you need even more confidants, then rest assure we are accredited Termidor HE (High Efficiency) installers. Termidor HE is the best available termiticide on the market.
