Altriset vs Termidor

Can you please explain the difference between Altriset and Termidor? Which one do you recommend for a termite treatment?


Altriset Termiticide and Termidor SC are both used as an outdoor treatment for termites. Altriset is labeled only for subterranean termites. The active ingredient is chlorantraniliprole. Altriset is labeled Reduced-Risk by the EPA and presents no health risk to humans or domestic animals when used as directed. This product is only labeled to last for at least 5 years in the soil. Termidor SC is labeled for all kinds of pests, including termites, ants, crickets, etc. Termidor SC cannot be used on pets for any reason. It does last for 10 years in the soil.

We recommend Termidor SC for a termite treatment due to how long it lasts in the soil.
