Termites can enter a building through any material directly in contact with the soil. They also enter through foundation cracks, concrete joints, gaps between water pipes and the concrete slab, bath traps, and via transportation (mud) tubes they create over or through the foundation.*

Wood Destroying Insect Inspections and Reports

Termidor® is an advanced undetectable liquid technology. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid it. Instead, they contact, ingest and share Termidor®, completely unaware that doing so inevitably will kill them.
Whenever a termite ingests or touches Termidor®, it can become a “carrier,” transferring Termidor® to other termites it contacts. These termites, in turn, can become secondary carriers, behaving normally while they transfer Termidor® to other termites they contact—and so on within the colony. Because Termidor® is slow-acting, it gives individual termites ample time to transfer it to others in the population. This unique, spiraling process is called the “Transfer Effect,” and its devastating results maximize the protection of your structure.
