Why Termidor® SC?

The ultimate defence against termites.

A unique, single action product, Termidor®SC contains the active ingredient, fipronil, the result of extensive research and development by BASF. Fipronil is the first active ingredient of a highly efficient class of insecticides (phenyl pyrazoles). Fipronil takes action through blocking the GABA receptor. Hyper-excitation of the nervous system leads to death.?

Unlike other products on the market, Termidor® SC does not contain organo-chlorines, organo-phosphates or pyrethroids. There is therefore no risk of cross-resistance with other insecticides, and no resistance to the product has yet been found.

Mode of Action:

Termidor® SC undetectable and non-repellent, termites are unaware that they have ingested or come into contact with the insecticide. The unique ‘Transfer Effect’ means that termites act as carriers, transferring Termidor® SC to other termites in the nest. Correctly applied, Termidor® SC can eliminate a termite infestation within weeks.

Termidor®SC, the sensible choice in the fight against termites

Innovative mode of action:

Termidor® SC is undetectable to termites and therefore non-repellant and more effective.

Effective: The unique ‘Transfer Effect’ brings about the elimination of the entire colony as the termiticide is passed from termite to termite through contact.

Diverse: Termidor® SC is equally effective as a preventative as well as a curative treatment.

Safe: Termidor® SC is odourless and non-invasive. As it is used at low doses, it has very little impact on the environment and its inhabitants.
