Termidor is a clear choice, for termite or ant treatment, when only the best will do. Termidor is the new standard in Termite and Ant control world-wide. Products come and go. Some are better than others. I plan to give you my take of the effectiveness and longevity of the termite treatment products I review. My opinion isn’t the final word by any means, but trying new things and then having years to measure the results, is worth passing along to my clients and the world.
Features of Termidor
Termidor is made up of 91.9% of inert ingredients whereas the rest of the 9.1% consists of an ingredient known as “Fipronil”.
Fipronil is an active ingredient that has been marked safe for use with no harm to humans and pets by the Environmental Protection Agency.
The ingredient remains harmless unless or until it is ingested.
Termidor is odorless and is made from a nonrepellent or “undetectable” chemical technology.
Furthermore, it controls subterranean termites, including the extremely destructive Formosan subterranean termites, damp wood termites, and dry wood termites
However, it contaminates water so if there is a water body on your property avoid using it on the grounds, especially near any waterways. Keep in mind Termidor is toxic humans, fish, and wildlife if ingested.
Termidor Reviews From Users
“Being a licensed applicator, I can truthfully say that nothing else in the market can compare to the results that you can get from Termidor. I used to work for one of the bigger exterminator companies and about 80% of every problem call was due to ants. In almost every case, it would only take one proper exterior application of Termidor to take care of the ants. The same is true for termites. This stuff is the BEST!
Other users say since the use of Termidor, there have been no more termites in or around the house, and the product was more than effective in treating a very bad infestation.”
Another user has shared concerns over the health warnings displayed on the label which scares them from using the product at their home. But we should keep in mind that you can’t control such a nasty pest without any chemicals.
If you can treat a mall infestation, a natural remedy like orange oil could work. But for large infestations, you don’t have any other option to get substantial control.
It highly depends on the end-user. How they perceive pesticides and how severe the problem is. The more you understand its application and labels, you won’t have any problem whatsoever.
“Termidor works because the treatment does not have to be perfect. Get some in the area where they are active and they will carry it back to the colony. There is no need to pay for costly drilling inside your home anymore.”
“First, I was impressed with just the bottle. Termidor SC is designed so you can pour exactly the right amount of mix with no trouble. Second, I have had a chronic carpenter ant problem for years. It costs a minimum of Kes 20,000 for a professional to do 1 treatment or Kes 35,000 for a year. For about Kes 7,000 total and 20 minutes of my time, I knocked out the ant problem. I have enough left over for at least three years. All the ants running up and down and inside my house walls disappeared in a couple of hours. There are dead ants everywhere outdoors, with a couple staggering around in circles.”
“As a Termite and Pest Control professional, NOTHING beats Termidor SC. By far the most effective and safe termiticide on the market. Do not trust anything else to protect your home!”

“We have used this product successfully for 5 years, we have done over 100 termite barriers using Termidor without a single site failure. We put this down to correct mixing of the product, correct site preparation, and our specialist tools and pumps to apply the product.”
“One of my rental houses has been in the family for over one hundred years and is infested with termites. Since I am a do-it-yourself, and hiring a “Professional Company” is way too expensive for this old house, I am so glad that I found out about your product that I can apply and monitor myself. This way it is affordable. Thank you for offering an effective affordable product like Termidor to owners of the marginal property.”
“I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly my order was delivered. Thank you.”
“Use it for termites, ants, and spiders. I spray only outside, but it controls the insects. I like it very much.”
Let us conclude user reviews. You always should take external reviews as a grain of salt and make your own educated decision based on your type of infestation, where you live, and how much damage infestation can do to your structure.
Termite control is very expensive if you want to hire a specialist. I would suggest you give it a try and see if you can save some money. If you aren’t able to control it yourself, I would suggest hiring a professional termite control company.
How to Apply Termidor Yourself
The application of Termidor isn’t too technical. If you want to do it yourself and don’t want to spend hundreds and even thousands of shillings on pest control companies, please watch the below video and step-by-step instructions to learn how you can apply this product.
- Get started with digging a trench of 6 inches wide and 6 inches deep around the base of your house. It is necessary and it doesn’t matter if your house is built on blocks or slabs.
- Wear gloves and other protective gear like Goggles, Face Mask, etc.
- Start by pouring one-third of the water into a sprayer. If you don’t have a sprayer you can use a bucket to fill it with water.
- Add the correct amount of Termidor as prescribed on the label.
- Fill the water to the top and wait 2-3 minutes so that Termidor dissolves in water.
- Spray or Pour the Termidor in the trench you dug in step1. Make sure you apply 15L of Termidor for every 10 feet of the length of your trench.
How Long does Termidor Last?
Termidor termite barriers will provide complete termite protection for 10 years. We recommend yearly termite inspections as part of the 10-year life expectancy to ensure the termite-treated zone isn’t weakened or breached by conducive conditions.
Conducive conditions may include
- Hot water drip tubes or A/C drip tubes dripping against wall edges (Moisture attracts termites)
- Landscaping modifications
- Mulch against wall edges or treated zones
- Drainage issues
Can Termidor Get Rid of Ants?
Termidor works extremely well on ants also due to its transfer effect, Ants can be eliminated from lawns using the product. Usually, we will apply a fine spray over the top of the grass and lawn areas using enough product to wet the soil. This means when the grass is cut the Termidor will still be bonded to the soil.
As ants pass through the treated areas and then underground to their nests, complete elimination is achieved through the transfer effect.
What Makes Termidor Different From Other Termite Control Options?
Like many other termite control products, Termidor is a liquid—but that’s where the similarities end. Among liquid termiticides, Termidor is the most effective. That’s because Termidor is undetectable so termites neither avoid its treatment zone nor try to find a way around it.
Some nonrepellent liquids claim to be “nearly,” “practically,” or “almost” as effective, but the difference between “almost as good as Termidor” and Termidor itself can make all the difference in the world when it comes to protecting your home from termites.
