The past 20 years have seen the development of Termidor to become the top choice when it comes to termite control products.
Recent years have witnessed the growing popularity of termite control services. This is partly because climate change has created ideal conditions for termites to thrive. To put it simply, high temperature with high humidity paves the way for massive bushfires and flooding. This motivates pests and insects, including termites to move into homes.
Years ago, pest control companies would use chemicals to keep termites away from houses and commercial structures. These chemicals often contain substances which disturb the signals left by pests on their trails and nests to communicate with one another. Another effect is that pests sense the chemical and then stay away on their own. This proves to be a great choice to get rid of pests and for pre-construction prevention.
Yet, there are many obstacles to creating such a barrier. One scenario is that termites may make their way in between walls. Because the location is hidden, it is very difficult to detect and kill the pests.
Termites can tunnel through soft surfaces like soil. This explains why the chemical liquid termite treatments have failed to solve termite problems all the time.
Then, a great invention got in and changed the entire termite control market. Many companies presented their non-repellent pesticides. On April 1, 2000, Aventis launched Termidor, which has proved to be one of the best solutions to termite control over the past 20 years.
Termidor is a spray that is devised to deal with termite species that thrive in Sydney’s climate.
Most termiticides in the market keep termites away, rather than killing them. However, since the termites are repelled when they come in contact with a surface, such as wood, the effect is less strong. As Termidor is non-repellent, termites are not able to detect it.
Termidor, like most pesticides, is toxic to termites when they absorb it willingly as they do not know it’s there. Once a termite touches Termidor, they take it back to their colony. Every other termite it contacts will itself become a carrier to infect others. Experts call this “The Transfer Effect”.
The “Transfer Effect” makes Termidor a powerful pest spray. Because termites live in colonies and transfer food back to their colonies, they will carry Termidor along as well, harming even the termites that have no direct access to the spray.
Termidor’s efficacy has been proven not only in Australia but in other countries as well. Since its launch, it has been used in millions of homes struggling with termite problems.

If there are termites in my yard, does that mean these pests are already in my house?
Should I be worried?
Should I book a termite control service?
What signs should I look for to determine how bad the problem is?
This article is created to answer these sorts of questions.
It’s not unusual for homeowners to find termites in their yard or garden while digging or planting. On rare occasions, you might even catch these insects above ground foraging at night. Termites have been known to collect grass pieces from your lawn to carry back to their nest.
Termites serve an important role in our larger ecosystem. These creatures are recyclers and decomposers of dead wood, which helps maintain an essential balance among the living organisms that make up our backyards.
You may have some knowledge of the destructive power of termites. You may have heard that they cause billions of dollars of damage to structures every year. You may have also read about how thoroughly they can destroy a house. An experienced pest professional will tell you they can feast on your home without you even knowing it. Termites have earned the nickname “silent destroyers” for this ability to threaten a homeowner’s largest investment.
So, if you spot a termite in your yard or garden, is it really a big deal? On the one hand, no.
Termites naturally feed on various types of plant material, which may include bark, leaves, humus, wood, and even the droppings of herbivores. However, once they’ve exhausted the food resources near their colony, termites will move on, and could begin feeding on the wood found on whatever structures they encounter.
Basically, their quest for food may bring termites to your house. If they find wood to feed (which they soon will, for sure), termites will build mud tubes leading from their colony to your home.
Termites may cause structural damage, especially if your house is primarily built of wood.
Even if the structure does not have a wood exterior, termites may cause structural damage by damaging walls, foundations, and many more.
Termites could get into your home and feed on furniture, ceilings, floors, and cabinets. Termites can damage other cellulose-based materials, such as carpets, books, clothes, and photo frames.
Since termites feed 24/7, the damage they cause may progress quickly if the right countermeasures aren’t put in place.
If you suspect termites in your backyard, the best idea and solution is to have a professional inspect your home. Termite inspections are often free, unless you need a formal report for use in a real estate transaction, so might as well take advantage of that.
Pest professionals have heard all the questions mentioned above and other countless others similar like them - and many times over.
We understand that finding termites outside is something that leaves homeowners wondering what they should do next. Thus, allocate the time to do something about this or prepare the budget if needed.
