Termidor Eliminates All Termites
Termidor® will eliminate all termites attacking your home or business in 3 months or less, and with Termidor’s transfer effect; termites will transfer the treatment to other termites in the colony, even those that do not come in contact with the treatment, ELIMINATING the termites attacking your home. Termidor will eliminate all active termites now, and any that try to attack in the future.
Bait Systems will eliminate all termites that come in contact and feed on baited stations installed around your home or business within 2 years. With bait transfer, if the colony continues to feed on the bait for over 30 days, those termites feeding on the bait will be eliminated. HOWEVER, if the colony attacking your home now, or in the future does not come in contact with a station, there is no protection, and the colony will continue to feed on your home.
Termidor is ALL You’ll Need
Termidor is a stand-alone product. Wingate’s Termidor HE exterior treatment, without drilling floors and foundations, does not need a bait system to help back it up to eliminate termites and protect your home or business. Termidor eliminates termites in 3 months or less and protects your home and business for at least 10-years with one treatment.
Bait Systems companies back their systems up with Termidor. Because Bait Systems can take up to 2 years to eliminate termites, most will use Termidor to treat active termites for faster elimination. And, because termites are constantly found going in between stations and feeding on the structure they are trying to protect, local treatments are performed to address this activity.
Termidor is Guaranteed Protection
Termidor provides permanent protection against termites currently attacking your home or business now, and any other colonies that try and attack in the future. Termidor ongoing field trials by the United States Department of Agriculture show no signs of termite re-infestation in field test plots for over 18 years and going. Once applied, the treatment adheres to the soil around the home and stays there, eliminating termites for years to come. The constant band of protection Termidor provides around the home eliminates any opportunity termites might have to find gaps that other liquid or bait systems allow, including Bait Systems.
Bait Systems provides protection only if termites actually hit stations. Bait Systems stations are installed around a home or business with 5-10 foot gaps between each station. If termites do not come in contact with a station, or the stations become too wet, dry, moldy, ant infested, or broken, the system provides no protection against infestation. Most Bait Systems companies will treat areas of active termites with Termidor when installing their system. All Bait Systems companies will offer a backup liquid treatment if termites do not hit stations and eliminated. They ALL use Termidor.
Termidor Offers the Best Warranty
Termidor treatments provided by Wingate have an initial 10-year warranty that can be extended for life. We do require annual inspections and an annual renewal, but the renewal does not go up every year. Inspecting the structure is critical in any warranty program, not because the structure is the monitor, but because our $250,000 termite protection plan begins as soon as we treat your home. If any new activity is found during the warranty period, we will treat at no additional charge. If any termite activity causes any new damage, we will repair the damaged area at no additional charge. There is a grace period of up to a year for renewals, and all warranty’s transfer to new home owners if the home is sold.
Bait Systems installations generally will have a life time renewable contract available. Unfortunately, the annual cost of renewal will continue to go up every few years, if not every year. As discussed, if any active termites are found, they will generally treat that area with Termidor at no additional cost, you will, however, continue paying for a system that is not providing stand-alone protection. Most Bait Systems companies will also offer a protection plan for damage, but that protection plan isn’t available until a few years of contract. And, if you don’t pay your annual renewal fee to your installation company, the Bait Station Company will have the stations removed, leaving you with zero protection.
