The active ingredient in Termidor SC is Fipronil, a compound undetectable by termites. When the pests walk and forage through treated areas, they will ingest the product, pick it up on their bodies, and transfer it between other members of their colony.
Because of this fast and simple transfer effect, Termidor SC can achieve 100% control of termite populations in just 3 months – using a very low rate of just 0.006% active ingredient.
Termidor SC easily eliminates all types of termites, including subterranean, formosan, and drywood varieties, but it isn’t just for termite control. It’s also effective against other pests including ants, spiders, paper wasps, earwigs, millipedes, and cockroaches.
In addition, when used as an in-ground barrier treatment, Termidor SC will provide protection for over 10 years – making it extremely efficient and cost-effective.
