What is Termidor? Everything You Need to Know

When implementing proper pest control, a few things come to mind that separate professional pest control from do-it-yourself (DIY) pest control: training, experience, and chemical treatments. With DIY pest control in terms of termites and ants, you can certainly try to fend off pests with bait traps or other sprays, but virtually nothing does the job like a professional, chemical treatment.

At Urban Desert Pest Control, our tried-and-true chemical treatment for termites, ants, and a variety of other pests, is Termidor. You might ask, “But what is Termidor? And what should I know about it when hiring the professionals at Urban Desert Pest Control to effectively take care of my pest infestations?” We’ll explore all of that and more in this article.

Termidor: The Basics

Because it has a low odor and long-lasting residual, Termidor is the number one choice of pest control companies in America. Termidor kills termites, ants, and other pests, and it is mixed with water and applied in areas depending on need, such as in the soil, home perimeters, or wall voids.

Termidor has a unique domino effect on termites and ants, meaning that once the pest is exposed they slowly start to die from the infection. Because termites and ants are social creatures that frequently interact with each other, they will infect other pests in turn, causing a ripple effect of Termidor infestation and eradication. Termidor also cuts down on time and labor because it requires shallower treatment depth, fewer drill holes, and smaller trenches. It’s a product with a terrific return on its use and investment.

Termidor: Is It Safe?

When hiring a professional pest control company to use chemicals and certain treatments for your home, many worry about the chemical’s safety. We can assure you that Termidor is absolutely safe. Everything is applied under the soil, so you won’t need to worry about your child or pet roaming outside and getting exposed to the product.

Termidor: How Is It Applied?

As for your home with Termidor, Urban Desert Pest Control applies the chemical wherever there appears to be a subterranean pest problem. If it’s the exterior, we trench all of the dirt areas and drill the concrete (slabs, front porch, back patio, garage, etc.). If the termite activity is inside, we will foam the plumbing voids (your toilets and bathtubs) where the termites can penetrate through the foundation. We’ll also foam inside the wall where they are active. With both an exterior and interior treatment, Urban Desert Pest Control is highly effective at eradicating and keeping away termites, ants, and more pests.

Termidor with Urban Desert Pest Control

Urban Desert Pest Control sets itself apart from the competition in a number of ways. But one thing we especially pride ourselves on is our chemical treatment. We even offer a 5-year warranty upfront with the option to renew it for an additional 5 years: essentially a 10-year warranty. Other pest control companies trying to dig at your pockets and peace of mind only offer a 1 or 3-year warranty for their work. You can tell how confident a company is by how long they guarantee their work, and that’s why Urban Desert Pest Control stands above the rest.
