Termidor , manufactured by BASF, is a termiticide and insecticide used for termite control and prevention. Made with the active ingredient Fipronil 9.1%, Termidor Termiticide uses a unique “Transfer Effect” to eliminate termite and ant colonies.
Since Termidor Termiticide is a non-repellent insecticide, termites, ants, and other labelled insects will unknowingly come into contact with the insecticide and spread it to their nest mates through contact or food sharing, resulting in colony elimination. Termidor is also used to control other common pests, such as cockroaches, spiders, ticks, and more.
Termidor can be used for pre and post-construction termite applications and general pest control, including termite trenching injections, structural void applications, and exterior surface spraying.
To apply Termidor you will need either a handheld pump sprayer, a backpack sprayer, or a spray rig for large volume applications. For use as a termite trench treatment, you will need a pickaxe or shovel to dig the trench, and a bucket with at least a 5 gallon capacity to mix and apply the Termidor.
How to Use
First, you will need to determine how much Termidor you will need for your application. Measure your treatment area in square feet. You can find your treatment area’s size by measuring its length and width in feet, and then multiplying the results together (length x width = square feet). For termite trenching, measure the perimeter of the structure in feet. Termidor can be mixed between 0.4 fluid ounces per gallon of water to 1.6 fluid ounces per gallon of water depending on the desired dilution ratio. For most applications, we recommend using 0.8 fluid ounces of Termidor per gallon of water for a 0.06% dilution. For general exterior surface spraying, one gallon of Termidor dilution will treat about 1,000 square feet. For termite trenching, you will need 4 gallons of Termidor dilution to treat 10 linear feet.
