Rid Your Greater Knoxville Property of Termites
Termites are organized, persistent and destructive creatures. Each year they cause over $6 billion in damage to homes in the U.S. alone. The best defense you have in stopping termites from destroying your home is an effective termiticide treatment applied by a trained professional, like the ones at Southeast Termite and Pest Control.
Do You Have Termites?
If subterranean termites discover your home, they will search it for wood fiber. They will squeeze through cracks as narrow as the thickness of a penny in search of it. Expansion joints, foundation cracks, tiny gaps around plumbing and electrical service entries are all opportunities for termites.
Termites often leave some evidence of their presence. Look for small holes in wood, crumbling drywall and sagging doors or floors. Insect wings are another sign as termites shed their wings when they swarm. You may also see the shelter tubes, which termites have built to serve as their passageways.
If you suspect you have termites, call a certified pest management professional to perform a thorough termite inspection.
A Termidor-certified professional is your best choice.
Termidor Is Your Solution and the World's Best Termiticide
If an inspection reveals that you have termites, your Termidor-certified professional will recommend a treatment plan to get rid of and keep them from coming back. The key ingredient in the plan is Termidor termiticide/insecticide, a remarkable termite control product offering unprecedented results.
In trials across the U.S. and around the world, Termidor has proven 100 percent effective in eradicating termites in three months or less, a level of efficacy that no other termiticide or termite control system has ever achieved. Termidor is proving to be equally effective in keeping termites from coming back. Ongoing field trials by the U.S. Department of Agriculture show no signs of re-infestation at study sites more than 15 years after treatment with Termidor.
Since Termidor went on the market in March 2000, more than 4 million U.S. homes infested with termites have been treated with it. The results continue to be remarkable. There simply is no better termiticide available and no better way to address a termite problem.
"TRANSFER EFFECT™" CONTROLS THE WHOLE COLONY TWO TO SIX TIMES FASTER THAN A BAIT SYSTEM.
Thanks to Termidor's unique "Transfer Effect™," termites don't even need to contact the insecticide in order to die from it. All they need to do is make contact with another termite that has already contacted or ingested Termidor. In fact, termites infected with Termidor will spread the insecticide to every termite they contact. Because termites are social insects that live in large colonies and feed and groom each other, the "Transfer Effect™" provides for entire colonies to be controlled in three months or less – two to six times faster than the best bait systems.
Is it safe? Does it smell?
Termidor is used at very low rates. Typically, the active ingredient is present at just 0.06 percent. Keep in mind, too, that fipronil, the active ingredient in Termidor, is used around the world for flea and tick control on cats and dogs, and on agricultural lands to protect food supplies. Termidor has virtually no odor, which means you and your family won't notice a thing.
No Better Choice for Termite Control
Termidor is the only termiticide that combines a unique mode of action, unmatched control, a long residual and the ability to manage colonies fast, all in a low-dose, low-odor formulation. There simply is no better choice for termite control.
