Time is takes for Termidor Treatment to work?

We had Termidor applied over 2 weeks ago and I am still seeing a massive swarm every morning. How long does it take for the termites to be gone???


Termidor can take up to 90 days to kill the termite colony completely.  It is perfectly normal to still have termites swarm and see activity for a couple of months after the treatment.  This is a good thing, it means the termites are still walking through where the company placed the Termidor.  Termidor does not kill termites right away for a reason.  It takes awhile to kill the termites so they can take it back underground to where the colony and the queen are and spread the Termidor around to the entire colony, thereby killing the entire colony dead.  Termidor is the best termite treatment product available and as long as the termite company applied it correctly, it will no doubt solve your termite problem in due time.
