FREE Termite Inspection – and termite control in Houston with Termidor. The statistics are startling – one in thirty homes in the United States may be infested with termites each year.
The average cost of termite treatments and damage repairs exceeds $8,000. Termites cause an estimated $5 billion in property damage a year in the United States.
In fact, they cause more damage to wood-based structures than fire, flood, or wind, according to the National Pest Management Foundation.
Your residence is probably the largest, most expensive single acquisition you will ever make. It’s probably your single biggest investment, too.
And to think that it can be greatly damaged by little, hard working insects – that’s just frightening. When you think about how much you are putting into your Houston area home, are you thinking about how much is being taken out of it by termites? You need to take steps to defend your home before termites can damage it.
An excellent place to start is a termite inspection and then to educate yourself on the options you have available. Gulf Coast Exterminators is here to help.
Here, you will gain knowledge of the differences between Termidor (the product we feel to be the best in termite control) and termite baiting systems.
One of the most tested Termite Solutions in History
Before Termidor was made available to American homeowners through Termidor Certified Professionals, it was subject to some of the toughest, most rigorous tests in history. For 8+ years, Termidor was subject to grueling USDA-Forest Service ground board and concrete slab trials in four states. At every application rate and every last location, Termidor proved 100% effective.
How Termidor’s “Transfer Effect” works
The active ingredient in Termidor is fipronil and it works quite differently from other termiticide active ingredients. Most termiticides are repellents, which means they keep termites away from a treated area, rather than killing them.
These repellent termiticides also kill termites. However, since these are repellent to termites, they are repelled when they come in contact or just before actually coming in contact with pyrethroid treated soil, the ‘killing power’ is less dramatic and if anyone took the time to count dead termites, less efficient.
Termidor is non-repellent. Termites can’t distinguish treated soil from untreated soil. Since they don’t know it’s there, they contaminate themselves while looking for food in treated areas.
Like other leading liquid termiticides, Termidor is lethal to termites when they ingest it (which they do readily since they don’t know it’s there). But, unlike all other termiticides, Termidor is lethal by contact as well. Once a termite comes into contact with Termidor, they carry it back to the colony on their bodies.
Every other termite it contacts will itself become a carrier, contacting and infecting others. This is known as “The Transfer Effect.”
The Termidor Zone vs. Bait Systems
Interesting Facts About Termidor
Termidor does not require any special equipment to apply. The same equipment PCO’s have been using for years is all that’s required.
When your home is treated with Termidor, a “Treated Zone” is established around the home. This is done using established, time tested techniques that our Termite Control Professionals are very knowledgeable about and familiar with.
Termidor – Day One
Termites wander into the treated zone and pick up the active ingredient. Already, some are “carriers” that are beginning to “infect” others in the colony. No termites have wandered into the monitoring stations yet.
Termidor – A Few Days Later
Termidor has been transferred to many in the colony. Many have already died, but the “Transfer Effect” continues to those who have not even gone into the treated “Zone.” Still, there may be no activity in the stations. Just termites eating your home.

100% Termite Control! No more termites to damage your home. And the Termidor is still in the soil around your home providing protection against any new invading termite colonies. Termites might have found the monitors at this point. However, unless there is sufficient activity, the PCO still might not apply any bait materials yet. Even if there is enough termite activity to bait, those critters are still feeding on your home, too.
When a Bait System is installed around your home, you have monitors placed every 8 to 10 feet around the perimeter of the house. In most systems there is nothing more protecting your home but wood “monitors.” Bait will not be added until there is termite activity in one or more of the stations.
Bait System – Day One
No termites have wandered into the monitoring stations yet.
Bait System – A Few Days Later
Still, there may be no activity in the stations. Just termites eating your home.
Bait System – A Few More Days Later
Termites might have found the monitors at this point.
However, unless there is sufficient activity, the PCO still might not apply any bait materials yet. Even if there is enough termite activity to bait, those critters are still feeding on your home, too.
- The odds of termites wandering into a Termidor zone are much greater than wandering into a bait or monitoring station.
- 100 gallons of Termidor solution contains only 8.4 ounces of the active ingredient! (When mixed at the label rate of .06% WG formulation.)
- Termidor is not affected by debris, dryness, insects, or fungal decay.
- Termidor is effective with all types of soil, in all kinds of climates, and on many species of termites.
