Termidor Dust is the culmination of over 10 years research in Australia to find the perfect termite nest elimination product. Termidor Dust is applied by professional Pest Control Operators directly on to the termites, either inside your house or onto activity around the yard (trees, fences etc). Termidor Dust is also perfect for treating active termite bait stations.
After treatment, the termites carry the dust particles on their bodies and eventually back to the nest (where ever that may be) via the unique Transfer Effect™. Extensive Australian research proves that it takes as little as 2 to 4 weeks for total termite elimination.
This is much faster than expensive baiting systems and you will not require numerous visits from the Pest Control Operator to achieve success. Eradication of one termite colony with Termite Dust does not guarantee protection from a future attack by other colonies in the area.
Termite dusting is not designed and should not be used as a standalone treatment. Therefore a continuous chemical treatment such as Termidor Residual Termiticide should be applied immediately following successful eradication of termite activity in the home to ensure protection in the future.
There are some situations where termites may be present in the house with no connection to the exterior. This may have occurred because of a previous treatment conducted with older termite control products that are repellent, thus trapping them inside with no choice but to feed solely on the house timbers. Also, leaking plumbing inside the house can create conditions where the termites do not need to return to the soil for their moisture source.
Under these conditions, no liquid treatment will be effective. However, Termidor Dust will eliminate them from the house. Termite activity is on the increase in Australia and the Pest Control Operators are busy people, therefore upon inspecting a house and confirming termite activity, it may be several weeks before they can return to apply a Termidor treatment. However the Pest Control Operator may apply Termidor Dust to eliminate activity before applying the preventative Termidor treated zone to the soil. The Australian Standard for termite control states that an initial remedial treatment, such as a dusting, be conducted before installing a chemical treated zone.
