Termite Control


As a property owner, you may have many questions regarding whole-structure fumigation with Vikane® gas fumigant. Here you will find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about whole-structure fumigation and the fumigation process.

What is Vikane® gas fumigant?

Vikane is a colorless, odorless gas that quickly penetrates structural materials during whole-structure fumigation. Vikane, backed by nearly 50 years of university research, practical use and published reports is nonstaining, noncorrosive and nonflammable. Vikane quickly dissipates from the structure into the atmosphere and does not damage the ozone layer.

Soil Treatments

Termidor® termiticide/insecticide has a number of flexible application options. Your pest professional will determine what type of Termidor treatment will work best for your particular situation. If there are no active termites in your home, Termidor will help ensure there wonʼt be any in the future. This not only protects your peace of mind, but adds value to your home as well.

Termites canʼt avoid what they canʼt detect. 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.

Termidor eliminates termites several ways. When termites eat Termidor treated material, they will die. But Termidor doesnʼt stop there. It eliminates termites by contact as well. And since termites canʼt detect its presence, termites can directly ingest and contact Termidor as they go about their normal routines.

The Termidor “Transfer Effect™” 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.
