Termidor® SC Termiticide/Insecticide

Unparalleled Termite Control.

Termidor® SC Termiticide/Insecticide is 100% effective at controlling termites in three months or less. That's why since its introduction in 2000, pest management professionals have made Termidor America's leading termite control, with over 4 million structures treated.

Termidor eliminates termites by both ingestion and contact, and is lethal to termites simply through contact with other Termidor-tainted individuals. And because Termidor is a non-repellent - undetectable to termites - the pests freely forage through treated areas, unknowingly ingesting, picking up and transferring Termidor throughout the population. It's the product's unique "Transfer Effect," allowing Termidor to achieve 100% control of termite populations at the very low rate of just 0.06% active ingredient.

This mode of delivery elevates the effectiveness of Termidor termiticide/insecticide to a much higher level than other termiticides. Whenever a termite ingests or touches it, the termite can become a “carrier,” transferring the product to other termites it contacts. These termites in turn can become secondary carriers, behaving normally while they transfer the termiticide to other termites they contact, spreading it like a virus throughout the colony. The unique, spiraling process of this Transfer Effect helps it deliver devastating results to termites and maximize structural protection.

Perimeter Pest Control

For years, the same nonrepellent, undetectable technology that has made Termidor SC termiticide/insecticide America’s #1 termite defense has also proven highly effective in controlling many species of nuisance ants. Ants are controlled through genuine Transfer Effect technology when they freely cross through treatment areas they become donors of the treatment when they return to the colony resulting in complete colony elimination. Now, Termidor SC termiticide/insecticide is labeled for a broad range of other frequently encountered general pests, like spiders, cockroaches, paper wasps, earwigs and millipedes.
