What do I need to use just for preventative temite control?

We built our house 5 years ago and had it treated for termites then. We haven't done anything since then. What should we use for preventative termite control?


Termidor SC (or Taurus SC the generic of Termidor SC) is our most popular choice for a termite preventative. Termidor will protect your home and eliminate almost any termite problem in less than 90 days. In addition, when used as an in-ground barrier treatment, Termidor will protect your home for over 10 years. Termidor is completely undetectable by termites and once termites touch it they contact, ingest and spread the termiticide until it eliminates the entire colony. Termidor controls all types of termites including subterranean, formosan, and drywood termites. Please take a few minutes to read our article How to do a termite treatment to learn how to perform your own barrier treatment.
