What makes Termidor different from "do-it-yourself" ant control options?

Many “do-it-yourself” ant control efforts can actually make things worse. In fact, most over-the-counter sprays and repellents can cause a phenomenon called “budding,” in which foraging ants, separated from their nest and queen by a repellent spray, will actually start new colonies. Termidor is an advanced undetectable treatment that is applied outside your home. Ants never know it’s there, so they can’t react to it or avoid it. Instead, they pick up Termidor on their routine travels to and from your home. Then, they spread it to the other ants in their colony.

How much will a Termidor ant treatment cost?

The cost of a Termidor ant treatment varies and largely depends on your particular situation, the treatment plan and service package you and your pest control professional agree upon.

Is Termidor real-world proven?

Termidor is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency. It should only be applied by a pest control professional who has been trained in correct application methods. Termidor is effective even at low application rates. Termidor is not a petroleum based material and will not cause harm to plants adjacent to the areas of application.
