Drywood termites cause hundreds of millions of dollars in damage every year. But you can stop them with Vikane® gas fumigant – the most commonly used whole-structure treatment for more than 50 years.

In an era when cellphones, televisions and computers only last a few years, the technology and research supporting Vikane® is unmatched — that’s why it has been trusted to rid more than 2 million structures of drywood termite infestations. With Vikane®, you can rest assured that all the drywood termites eating away at your home — your biggest investment — are gone.

With Vikane® gas fumigant, it’s one treatment and done. Whole-house fumigation with Vikane® is completed in one treatment. While a brief displacement from your home may be inconvenient, it is worth the peace of mind that fumigation offers. There’s no need to be home multiple times for pest technicians to apply spot treatments again and again.

Spot Treatments Do Not Compare

Imagine trying to find a needle in a haystack. For a spot treatment to be successful, it is necessary to find and thoroughly treat every drywood termite colony in a structure. An infested home may have multiple colonies in different areas. Finding colonies is not easy — it takes a lot of time, effort and expense.  Unfortunately, every home contains many areas that are inaccessible to inspection or treatment. Vikane® gas
fumigant penetrates the whole house, so it eliminates termite infestations in the structure — even those hidden in areas that are not possible to inspect or reach with a spot treatment. Spot treatments are not always 100 percent effective. University research comparing the efficacy of various spot treatments to whole-house fumigation with Vikane® gas fumigant documented that drywood termite activity often rebounded within one year after spot treatment. These researchers concluded, “Fumigation is a desirable treatment when total eradication must be ensured or when infestations are widespread or difficult to access for local treatment.”1

With Vikane®, It’s One and Done

And Vikane® gas fumigant is an inorganic gas that leaves behind no odor or surface pesticidal residue. Much like a deflating helium balloon, the gas quickly dissipates.
