Termidor HE Tutorial
ST. LOUIS, Mo. — BASF Pest Control Solutions today announced it has received federal registration for its new termiticide, Termidor H·E High-Efficiency Termiticide Copack with Termidor H·E Technology. Termidor HE Copack is the next generation of innovation from BASF, giving Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) productivity gains with a formulation and application standard that can result in 50 percent less water usage and 33 percent less labor.*
“Termidor HE Copack is truly an industry breakthrough that saves time, labor, and requires less water, yet still delivers the unmatched protection of Termidor,” said Dan Carrothers, business manager for BASF Pest Control Solutions. “This unique formulation and application for treating for termites allows PMPs to make productivity gains which will afford them greater flexibility, efficiency and opportunities to increase profits within their own operations, and BASF is pleased to deliver this to our customers.”
Termidor HE Copack expands upon the proven Termidor SC formulation with the addition of a BASF proprietary molecule that temporarily “boosts” the transport of fipronil, the active ingredient in Termidor, into the soil and creates an enhanced protection zone around the structure being treated. Benefits can include applying 50 percent of the water, and thus half the finished solution of a typical Termidor PerimeterPlus application.* It also requires 77 percent smaller trenches and allows for wider hole spacing so the job can be done in about half the time of traditional jobs.
Use of Termidor HE Copack can provide additional benefits to PMPs including less physical exertion and savings on long-term fixed costs of drill bits, rods and fuel. Termidor HE Copack will receive state registrations in 2012, and will be on sale this May.
