The two main types of termite treatments for existing homes are
traditional liquid barriers (drilling, trenching, rodding), and
termite baiting systems (bait stations filled with a bait matrix
cartridge which is implanted in the ground). Both treatments are offered by

is made from a revolutionary new non-repellent
liquid termiticide. Termites cannot see, smell, taste or avoid Termidor.
Instead they share it with others in their colony by touching or
ingesting it. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite
controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can find breaks
in or avoid completely. Termites who contact Termidor transfer it to
every other termite they come in contact with. The "Transfer
of Termidor is
engineered to be slow-acting so that termites have plenty of time to
spread it throughout the entire termite colony.

it an Ant or is it a Termite?
That's a Termite swarmer on my index finger. Most people know that
termites have wings and fly, sometimes in vast numbers. Ants have the
ability to fly as well. Termite swarmers and ant swarmers look very
similar. Both have wings and they are black. Termites have 4 very
delicate wings, (See Termite swarmer picture on my thumb) which
are the same size rounded at the end.
Termite swarmers have 2 segments; a head and a long body, but no
on the other hand, have a pinched-in abdomen and have three segments;
the head, thorax, and abdomen. See pic to the right. (Do
you see the thin spine in the middle of the carpenter ants swarmers
body?) Compare that to the picture to the left and picture of termite
Insurance homeowner policies underwrite damage caused by hail, fire,
floods, tornados or hurricanes like Katrina. They will not cover damage
(estimated at 2 to 3 Billion Dollars annually) caused by another force
of nature, such as termites.
Termites evolved from wood eating roaches
over 200 million years ago. In the African Savannah termites recycle 1/3
to 1/2 of all the carbon available. They are the best recyclers on the
planet. They eat cellulose and in your house that means wood, wood
framing, siding and sheet rock; basically the majority of your
structure. You don't want termites to recycle your house.
