Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide TERMIDOR BASF

Description

Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide

Active Ingredient: Fipronil @ 100g/L

Similar or comparable to TermiForce 100SC Termiticide and Insecticide (Indigo), Surefire Termiticide and Insecticide (PCT) & Warden 100SC Insecticide (ADAMA)

Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide is for the protection of structures from subterranean termite damage and for the control of subterranean termites, ants, domestic cockroaches, earwigs, houseflies, web-spinning spiders, daddy-long-legs spiders, millipedes, pillbugs, and house crickets around domestic and commercial structures

Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide provides the most superior levels of control across a broad range of external pests, including ants, cockroaches, spiders and flies.

Termidor has been developed with BASF’s advanced nonrepellent technology, providing significant advantages over other inferior insecticides.  This nonrepellent technology results in reduced insecticide use, unsurpassed efficacy and superior residual characteristics.  Data currently available indicates that this product, when applied as a soil treatment around or under a building or structure in accordance with this label, will be effective against subterranean termites for a minimum period of eight years.

Termidor’s unique Transfer Effect ensures the powerful active ingredient can be passed effectively throughout the pest population ensuring pests continue to interact with the insecticide without detection or disruption in behaviour – leading to unsurpassed levels of efficacy & long-term residual control.

Termidor is applied as a continuous chemical soil zone around and under the home.  Some termiticides are repellent and rely on keeping termites away from treated structures. Termites cannot detect Termidor and will not avoid the treated area.  As a result, termites continue to forage through the soil until they encounter Termidor and pick up a lethal dose.

When a single termite comes into contact with Termidor, it will unknowingly transfer it back to the colony on its body, including every termite it contacts on the way, thus infecting termites that have not even been near the Termidor treated zone.  This is the “Transfer Effect” and a key reason why no other termiticide performs as well as Termidor.

Termites can’t detect Termidor due to its innovative non–repellent technology, so they can pick up a lethal dose while foraging in treated areas. As a result it works quicker and faster. Affected termites transfer Termidor to others by contact, grooming and exchange of food.

Termidor will also control ants, domestic cockroaches, web-spinning spiders and houseflies by direct contact and residual activity on treated surfaces.  When applied as a surface spray as directed, Termidor will give up to 3 months’ control of ants and is best applied as pest activity increases in early spring.

    Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide is not registered or recommended for use in termite bait stations. But your theory is sound, especially if you keep the attractant in the bait station after treating it with Termidor. Results can't be guaranteed because this is an 'off-label' application.

    Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide can be legally purchased in Australia by customers for domestic use. The manufacturer of Termidor, however, recommends that chemical treatment for termite control around existing buildings should be considered part of an integrated approach to reduce the risk of termite attack and should be conducted by Licensed Pest Control Operators.

    Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide can be applied to the area between the brickwork & timber frame on buildings where Termimesh has been installed. It is fine to use Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide before laying concrete paths or pavers if it has also been applied before laying the pavers. Another system you might like to consider if concrete paths or pavers are being installed is a reticulation system. This allows Termidor to be easily reapplied under the path/pavers as required.

    Answered by the admin

    Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide is known for its effectiveness in controlling termites and other insect pests. However, it is important to note that Termidor is typically designed for application in soil or targeted areas where termites are likely to enter a structure. It may not be the most appropriate method when applying Termidor on top of a concrete slab. Termidor is primarily intended for creating a treated zone in the soil around a structure to prevent termites from gaining access. Applying it directly on top of a concrete slab may not provide the same level of protection or effectiveness. Other termite prevention and control strategies may be more suitable for concrete slabs, such as implementing physical barriers during construction, using pre-construction soil treatments, or employing alternative methods recommended by termite control professionals (i.e. Rodding). These methods are often designed to address the specific challenges associated with termites and concrete slabs.

    Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide is a contact insecticide that can be applied in many situations.  To be effective, a termite must come into contact with the Termidor.  It will unknowingly transfer it back to the colony on its body, including every termite it contacts on the way, thus infecting termites that have not even been near the Termidor-treated zone.  If you believe termites are active behind the bricks and are confident that you can apply the insecticide where they are active, then there isn't any reason why you can't use the Termidor in those areas.  Remember that you may not be covering the track they are using, so no contact will be made.

    You may need to include other control methods such as Trelona Termite Baits that will attract the termites in your control strategy.

    Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide has detailed directions for use that you must consult thoroughly before application.  These are available on the Specialist Sales website for each product in the 'Technical & SDS' tab.

    For 'Vertical Treated Zones', the trench needs to be a minimum of 150 mm wide and continue to at least 50 mm below the top of the footing. Assuming a 150 mm wide trench with a 300  m distance to the top of the footing, this would equate to a 150 mm x 350 mm trench in which you would apply 5.25 L of prepared spray per lineal metre of the trench.

    The active ingredient in Termidor is Fipronil, which is also used in many other products, including spot-on flea treatments for pets.  In some US studies, fipronil was found to be highly toxic to some birds but practically non-toxic to ducks. Fipronil was also highly toxic to honey bees but not toxic to earthworms.  Before spraying Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide, remove animals and pets from the areas to be treated.

Tips For Use

General Pest Control:

  • Termidor will control ants, domestic cockroaches, web-spinning spiders and houseflies by direct contact and residual activity on treated surfaces.
  • When applied as a surface spray as directed, Termidor will give up to 3 months control of ants and is best applied as pest activity increases in early spring.
  • A follow-up application during summer may be required.
  • Do not apply more than 2 residual applications per year.
  • Termidor will control earwigs, daddy-long-legs spiders, millipedes, pillbugs and house crickets by direct contact (spot treatment) only.

Termite Control:

  • Chemical treatment for termite control around existing buildings should be considered to be part of an integrated approach to reduce the risk of termite attack and should be conducted by Licensed Pest Control Operators.
  • The steps below best describe the procedure for optimum termite management:
    The building owner should try to minimise water entering under and around the building and improve drainage to reduce moisture accumulating in these areas.
  • Ventilation of sub-floor areas should also be optimised to reduce moisture accumulation.
  • The area under the floor should be kept free from debris-timber such as off-cuts of wood or firewood. Treat with a residual chemical zone treatment such as Termidor in compliance with AS3660.2.
  • Regular inspections should be carried out (at least annually as recommended by AS3660 Series).
  • If any additional subsequent building or landscaping work causes disruption to the chemical soil treated zone it must be restored to maintain protection.

Mixing:

  • Half fill the spray tank with water then add the required quantity of Termidor.
  • Stir then top up the spray tank to the required volume.
  • The use of this product in a tank mix with other insecticides is not recommended as the behaviour and efficacy of the product may be affected.
  • Ensure equipment is free of leaks and clean from residues of other chemicals before mixing.

Restraints:

  • Avoid runoff. Do not apply to excessively wet soils, immediately after or during heavy rain.
  • Do not apply at less than label rates.
  • Do not apply to internal surfaces.

Precautions:

  • Residents and pets should not be allowed in a room being treated.
  • Any spills should be cleaned up before leaving the room (refer to the SDS).
  • Ensure all heating/air conditioning ducts, air vents, plumbing pipes, sewer lines, floor drains, heating pipes and electrical lines/conduits are known and identified before commencing any application of termiticide.
  • Do not puncture or contaminate any of these.
  • Avoid application around edible plants.

Re-Entry Period:

  • Do not re-enter treated areas until spray has dried.

Protections:

  • Protection Of Wildlife, Fish, Crustaceans And Environment.
    • Highly toxic to fish and aquatic organisms.
    • Do not apply to areas where surface water is present.
    • Rinse waters and run-off from treated areas must be prevented from entering drains or waterways.
    • Do not apply if heavy rains are expected to occur within 48 hours of application.
    • Do not contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.
  • Dangerous to bees.
