Frequently Asked Questions
Termidor termiticide/insecticide is a professional termite defense product that utilizes nonrepellent, or “undetectable,” technology. Termites cannot smell, taste, or avoid the product. Instead, they contact, ingest, and share Termidor termiticide/insecticide, completely unaware that doing so will inevitably kill them.
Subterranean termites are quite good at avoiding detection because they typically live in colonies below ground. To avoid drying out and meeting predators, they will create mud tubes that connects from the colony to its food source. If you spot termite mud tubes on your foundation or even inside your home, there's a good chance termites have infested your home.
In addition to mud tubes, you should look for the following signs of termites:
- Wood in your home that sounds hollow when tapped
- Blistering wood inside
- Bubbling paint
- Doors & windows that are suddenly hard to open or close
- Termite swarms inside or outdoors
- Discarded wings near doors and windows
