LEARN TO PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT termidor header

Your property is likely to be the most expensive purchase you’ll ever make.  The destruction brought on by termites can ruin your investment.  That’s why you need to take steps to prevent it from happening.  Let HILSEN be your line of defense against termite invasions.

Here you will discover the major differences between Termidor liquid termiticide and bait/monitoring systems.  HILSEN utilizes the advantages from both systems into what we call THE HILSEN METHOD.  

Millions of property owners like you have made Termidor the #1 termite control product in America.  No other termite control system has ever achieved such a high level of efficacy, with 100% effectiveness in eradicating termites according to the U. S. Department of Agriculture.

Termidor is environmentally responsible.  Termidor was put through some of the toughest efficacy and environmental tests in history.  For 9+ years of government testing throughout the U.S., Termidor was proven to be 100% effective against subterranean termites, in even the most challenging situations, climates, and environments.  Termidor is also USDA Forest Service tested and meets the stringent standards of the Food Quality Protection Act. Termidor is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency and can only be applied by a pest control professional who has been trained in correct application methods. 

Termidor is incredibly effective even at low application rates.  For an average treatment, only about 8 ounces of the active ingredient fipronil is actually used, at the 0.06% labeled rate.  Fipronil is used extensively on food crops around the world and as the leading product for flea and tick control on dogs and cats since 1995.  Termidor is the only termiticide that combines a unique mode of action, 100% control, a long residual, and the ability to manage colonies faster than a baiting system all in a low-dose, low-odor formulation.

What makes Termidor work BETTER and FASTER than any other option?

The “Transfer EffectTM” 

Termites who contact Termidor transfer it to every other termite they contact in a unique process called the Transfer Effect.  The Transfer Effect controls the whole colony in the quickest way possible to eliminate your current TransferEffectPicture problem.  Termites feed each other primarily by passing food from mouth to mouth.  They groom each other. They contact each other as they forage for food.  Termidor is designed to take advantage of termite’s social behaviors in this Transfer Effect.  Because the active ingredient in Termidor is slow acting and allows the termite to continue its normal routine, it remains active long enough to transfer the Termidor to a large number of other termites in the colony. 

Unlike older liquids, Termidor does not repel termites.  Termidor is made from a revolutionary new nonrepellent or “undetectable” chemical technology.  That means termites can’t smell, see or feel the insecticide, so they crawl freely through treated areas.  When a termite eats or even comes in contact with the insecticide, it unknowingly transfers Termidor back to the colony on its body.  Every termite it contacts, feeds, or grooms will also transfer Termidor to other termites.  Termidor starts working immediately and can provide 100% control within days.

Termidor is proving to be equally effective in keeping termites from coming back.  Ongoing field trials by the USDA show no signs of reinfestation at all study sites more than nine years after treatment with Termidor, results no other termite control product can match.

TermidorCertifiedTechTermidor cannot be directly purchased or applied by property owners.  Only licensed pest control professionals who have taken Termidor Certification Training are authorized to purchase and apply Termidor.  All of HILSEN’Stechnicians have taken this extensive training.

HILSEN’S certified technician will apply a liquid dilution of Termidor along the exterior foundation walls of your property to create a continuous treatment zone.  Our technician may also treat the interior of your home, depending on the extent of the termite infestation and damage. Termidor bonds to the soil molecules for long lasting protection.

This combination of ingestion, contact, and the Transfer Effect results in unparalleled efficacy.  Termidor is the fastest out of all termiticides and known for its industry changing effectiveness in eradicating termites.

Quick facts

  • Termidor is odor-free.
  • Termidor does not require any special new equipment for application. 
  • 100 gallons of diluted Termidor solution contains only 8.4 ounces of active ingredient.
  • Termidor isn’t affected by debris, dryness, insects, or fungal decay.
  • Termidor is effective throughout all of the U.S, with all types of soil, in all kinds of climates, and on many species of termites.
  • The odds of termites foraging or tunneling through a Termidor-treated zone are much greater than running into a bait/monitoring station.
  • Termidor’s results speak for themselves, more than one million homes treated in just three years.
  • Responsible termite control demands periodic inspections.

Recruiting can take years to control a colony:

Many termite bait/monitoring systems work by recruitment, which mean termites eat the bait and return to the colony to recruit others to eat the bait.  They work only by ingestion.  Termidor works by contact.  Bait/monitoring systems depend on the termites to stumble upon them.  However, this process cannot begin until activity is identified in a monitoring station.  Bait/monitoring systems can take months to years to control a colony, while your property is being destroyed.  Termidor works immediately, there is no waiting.  To learn more about how Termidor compares to bait/monitoring systems consult the easy-to-follow pictorial guide below.
