When it comes to getting rid of termites, there are many treatments available that all have varying degrees of success. For the most part, the two main types of termite treatment are liquid termiticides (Termidor) and baiting systems. Termidor works to eliminate almost all types of termites, making it one of the most favored methods by pest control companies. Besides these two methods, there is also heat treatment, orange oil, direct soil or wood treatment, and more.

What is Termidor?

Termidor utilizes an advanced undetectable liquid technology. That means that termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid it. Instead, they contact, ingest, and share Termidor, completely unaware that doing so will inevitably kill them. Termidor spreads throughout a colony in the following ways:

  • Whenever a termite ingests or touches Termidor, it becomes a carrier and transfers Termidor to other termites it contacts. These termites in turn can become secondary carriers, behaving normally while they transfer Termidor to other termites they contact, spreading it like a virus throughout the colony.
  • This unique, spiraling process is called the “Transfer Effect,” and it helps deliver devastating results to termites in order to maximize the protection of your home.
  • Studies have shown that nothing is as effective as Termidor at eliminating 100% of termites. No other liquid and no other bait product can match the fast acting or long term protection that Termidor provides.

Do Bait Stations Work as Well as Termidor?

Bait stations are monitors that are placed every 8–10 feet around the perimeter of your home. Bait stations do not seek out termites. Instead, termites have to find a bait station for it to do any good. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that termites that are already inside or heading for your home will ever find a bait station at all. With most baiting systems, there is no active solution placed inside the bait stations at first which means there is absolutely no protection against termites.

Other Methods of Eliminating Termites

There are a number of other termite treatments that have varying degrees of success. Besides baiting systems and liquid termiticides, some of the most common additional methods of treatment include orange oil, borate solutions, heat treatments, and more. In almost every case, bait stations or liquid termiticides will be used to control termites with great degrees of success.
