Termite Control in San Antonio, TX.

The professionals at Accurate Pest Control use Termidor® to eliminate termites 100% from homes and other properties in three months or less. Termidor® has been named America's leading termite control by pest control professionals. Termidor’s liquid treatment will get rid of your termite problem.

How Does It Work?

Termidor® eliminates termites in San Antonio by both ingestion and contact, and it is lethal to termites simply through contact with other Termidor-tainted individuals. And because it’s a non-repellent—undetectable to termites—the pests freely forage through treated areas, unknowingly ingesting, picking up and transferring the lethal liquid treatment throughout the population. It's the product's unique "Transfer Effect™," that allows Termidor to exterminate termites (which helps with commercial termite control as well) at the very low rate of just 0.06% active ingredient.

Termidor Research and Studies

New Research Provides First-of-its-Kind Documentation of both Horizontal and Vertical Fipronil Transfer within Termite Colony.

Dr. Xing Ping Hu of Auburn University debuts groundbreaking video footage, research findings at 2006 National Conference on Urban Entomology

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC (MAY 22, 2006) – For the first time today, members of the pest management industry were presented video documentation and research results of lethal fipronil transfer among termites, both horizontal (worker to worker) and never-before-documented vertical transfer (worker to reproductive) within functional colonies in a simulated natural setting.

Presented as part of a larger study of termite behavior and management conducted by Dr. Xing Ping Hu of Auburn University, this footage vividly captures termite behavior within functional colonies including tunneling and foraging into undetectable Termidor-treated soil and the transfer of fipronil, the active ingredient in Termidor® insecticide/termiticide. Termidor, America’s #1 termite defense product, is manufactured by BASF—the Chemical Company.

“Without question, the power of the fipronil molecule has been well documented in our industry by any number of lab studies and real-world testing. My objective in this study was to document both analytically and visually, termite behaviors within functional colonies and in response to interaction with fipronil-treated soil,” says Dr. Hu, an entomologist who regularly conducts research on termites, including Formosan termites and various integrated pest management methodologies. “The footage demonstrates exactly how quickly and how completely fipronil can be transferred among colony members, including workers and reproductives, resulting in colony elimination.”

Termidor, with its active ingredient fipronil, is the only liquid termiticide to have such direct evidence supporting both horizontal and vertical transfer throughout termite populations. Hu concludes that the vertical Transfer Effect™ is responsible for control of reproductives, subsequently affecting whole termite populations, not just workers.

More research to document Termidor’s unique Transfer Effect will be forthcoming throughout the next eighteen months, according to Bob Hickman, a market development specialist for BASF, who has collaborated with Dr. Hu on this and other Termidor research. “BASF prides itself on having strong, mutually respectful relationships with university researchers across the country. They are among our best resources for new knowledge on our products, and their findings always lead to greater improvements for the industry overall,” says Hickman. “Dr. Hu is an invaluable part of this research network. Her findings and documentation will be utilized for years to come in our termite biology and product-specific education efforts within the pest management industry.”

Termidor® from BASF is 100% effective at controlling 100% of termites in three months or less – a statement no other termite control product can make. That's why since its introduction in 2000, pest management professionals have made Termidor America's leading termite control, with over 2.6 million structures treated. Termidor is not approved for use in the state of New York.

BASF – The Chemical Company, markets the most effective range of professional pest control solutions, including Termidor® and Phantom® termiticide-insecticides.
