Brandon Pest Control, a full-service pest control company headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. Stuart talks to us about what Termidor® High Efficiency Termiticide with THE Technology means for his business and customers.
Brandon Pest Control has been a Termidor® termiticide/insecticide user since day one. We were one of the first groups trained and authorized in North Florida and have been using the product ever since.
One of the main benefits of Termidor® HE Termiticide Copack our company appreciates is the ease of treatment. My technicians look forward to jobs when we’re using Termidor® HE Termiticide Copack because they know the application will not be as taxing as traditional termite treatments. With new homes using PVC pipes, drilling fewer holes decreases our chances of hitting pipes and making costly repairs and causes us to wait before we can start again. PVC material isn’t as easy to detect as older metal pipes. Drilling fewer holes saves us drilling and patching time and it is a visual benefit to our customers, regarding their porches and patios.
Another big benefit is the minimal amount of trenching required. In Florida, we have a lot of vegetation around properties (e.g., shrubs, trees, flowers). Having to dig larger trenches next to these often poses problems. Smaller trenches alleviate some of the difficulty we might have on a property with a lot of landscaping around the perimeter of the home.
For me, the major benefit of the labor savings with Termidor® HE Termiticide Copack is keeping my guys refreshed. While we still perform the same amount of termite jobs each day per technician they are able to increase their quality and spend more time with the customer. Using the new Termidor® product doesn’t burn them out as much as traditional treatments.
One of the benefits we have with Termidor® HE Termiticide Copack is how the product moves through the soil. The technicians realize the Termidor® HE technology provides for enhanced movement and excellent coverage at 18” spacing. This matters, especially when you have tougher situations like treating around air conditioners where there are a lot of pipes that affect drilling or trenching. Knowing the product is going to disperse and penetrate into these tough areas is really comforting.
When BASF Pest Control Solutions introduced Termidor® HE Termiticide Copack I had no reason to doubt the new product or transition my crew to using it. We have confidence in BASF and appreciate the new technology and innovations they bring to market that make our jobs easier.
