Termidor vs. Bait Stations
Trust Us for Effective Termite Pest Control in Tulsa, Broken Arrow & Beyond
Most pest professionals will offer one of two termite treatments: bait systems or liquid treatments. These two treatments work very differently, and the level of termite control provided by each can vary significantly. Guardian Angel Exterminating can help you determine which termite pest control is better for your home. As the top choice exterminator in Tulsa and Broken Arrow since 2005, we’ve tried and tested several types of termite treatments on the market, including bait systems and Termidor treatment. We know the effectiveness of each and can guide you on whether you should choose one over the other.
What Are Bait Stations?
Bait stations are plastic devices that a termite exterminator places in the ground around your home or commercial building. These stations contain either wood, paper, or cellulose that is laced with termite poison. They act as the first line of defense, keeping termites from entering your home. However, homeowners who choose bait systems in Tulsa must be willing to wait for protection. Baits are effective only through ingestion, which cannot begin until termite activity is found in a bait station and the insecticide is added. There is no guarantee that termites heading for or already in a home will ever find the bait stations. Additionally, the distance between installed bait systems is typically 10 feet. The combined open space between bait stations leaves up to 95% of your home’s perimeter unprotected from termites.
Benefits of Termidor
Termidor® termiticide starts working immediately and is the most effective and fastest at eliminating termites inside and around your home. In fact, full Termidor treatment can protect the entire home.
Why get a Termidor treatment instead of using baits?
- Unlike bait systems, Termidor works as an active defense against termites from day one. Termidor begins working immediately to wipe out termites both inside and around a home and provides 100% control in 3 months or less.
- While it is easy for termites to miss a bait system on the way to your home, a preventative Termidor treatment provides an immediate defense and ring of security around a home that termites cannot avoid, even if they try. That’s because they cannot smell, see, or otherwise detect the Termidor as they are crawling through it.
- Preventative treatment with Termidor will save a homeowner time and money in the long run, because it is ultimately more expensive to repair termite damage than to prevent it from happening in the first place.
How Is Termidor Different from Other Liquid Treatments?
The effectiveness of liquid treatments differs from one product to the next. Older treatment types act as a barrier, repelling termites as they approach a home. However, termites can be as small as the size of a grain of rice and will find breaks in the barrier, rendering these treatments less effective.
Termidor is the most effective liquid termite treatment. It is an undetectable, non-repellent termiticide that allows termites to forage in a treated area. When a termite ingests or contacts Termidor, it becomes a “carrier,” transferring Termidor to other termites it comes into contact with. Termidor is the only treatment that uses this unique Transfer Effect™ and is the only treatment that consistently wipes out 100% of termites in a home or commercial building.
