Termites cause over $5 billion in damage to private property every year. They infest over 600,000 homes and cause $30 billion in damage to crops and other manmade structures. Finding out that you have termites in your home or business can be devastating news- or it used to be.
In the past, a termite problem meant that you’d need to spend thousands of dollars on trenching and rodding along with repairing any damage done to your property. Today, expert pest removers like Thomas Pest Control use the Termidor® HP High Precision Injection System to get rid of termites in record time with no trenching or damage to your landscaping.

Why Termites Are a Serious Problem
A termite infestation can spell disaster for your home or office buildings if left unchecked. Termites live in colonies that average 60,000 – 100,000 individuals but that can grow into millions of insects. A colony of Formosan Subterranean Termites, a species commonly found throughout the southern United States including North Carolina, was discovered in Louisiana with over 70 million termites. This termite species alone causes over $1 billion in damage annually. The biggest colonies can consume up to a pound of wood a day, though an average-sized colony would consume more like 7 pounds a year.
Termites multiply fast, too. A single queen termite can produce over a thousand eggs a day in her prime. Queens are the heart of termite colonies and can survive for up to three decades, their sole task reproduction. Because the queen can be replaced by another reproductive termite if necessary, controlling termites requires that the queen and the rest of the colony are removed for the problem to be definitively eradicated.
What Termite Control Used to Look Like
Termite removal has customarily required you to dig a trench around your building and inject termiticide into the surrounding ground over several months. Digging a 6x6 inch trench around your entire perimeter is time-consuming and can cause significant damage to your landscaping and soil quality.
This type of termite control also requires pest removers to mix the termiticide themselves, opening up the possibility for dilution errors and oversights. What’s more, the trenching and rodding process needs a great deal of water to be effective, increasing the overall cost of removal for home and business owners. Oftentimes, this process would need to be repeated multiple times over several months to be completely successful.
How the Termidor HP Can Solve Your Termite Problem in Record Time
The Termidor HP High Precision Injection System approaches termite control from an entirely new angle. With a slim design adaptable to tight spaces, pest removal specialists use the Termidor HP along the perimeter of your building where a trench might have been dug before. Instead of digging, the Termidor HP shoots 6 jet streams of termiticide 12 inches into the ground with every application. This leaves the surface almost untouched and helps distribute the termiticide equally within the ground column.
The Termidor HP also uses 75% less water than traditional methods of termite removal, cutting down on waste and additional expense. Because each Termidor HP has its own onboard computer that perfectly measures the necessary mix of termiticide that should be used down to 1/10 of an inch. You never need to worry about operator mixing errors again. Pest control experts using the Termidor HP can clear up most termite infestations in less than three months, much faster than those who do not use this technology.
