Termidor® DRY Termiticide receives state registration in New York

ST. LOUIS, MO, July 27, 2011 – Termidor® DRY Termiticide from BASF Pest Control Solutions is now registered in the state of New York. Termidor DRY is a new method of treating drywood and subterranean termites, in virtually any wood, almost anywhere.

About Termidor DRY:

  • Patented Microllose™-based formulation is a purified micro-crystalline cellulose matrix, an extremely appetizing (more so than wood itself) termite food source
  • For use in gallery treatments inside structures and on off-structure treatment sites including trees, utility poles, fencing, decking, railroad trestles, piers, beams and other structural or landscape timbers
  • Comes in small, prepackaged, ready-to-use vials, which can be used to treat multiple structures and sites depending on termite infestation
  • Kills termites and can be transferred among termites via the Termidor “Transfer Effect™”

 “We are thrilled to be able to offer Termidor DRY to our New York-based customers,” said Nick Tresslar, Marketing Manager, BASF Pest Control Solutions. “The Termidor DRY formulation, applicator, method and uses create significant opportunities for the industry. Termidor DRY can be used in nearly any wood, almost anywhere, offering pest management professionals (PMPs) another option for termite control and opportunities to expand their termite business.”
