FUSE Termiticide - A Unique Chemistry Combo
FUSE insecticide/termiticide uses a combination of active ingredients with various modes of action for an unique and effective product. This combined chemistry by Control Solutions uses two non-repellents, (Imidacloprid 21.4%) and (Fipronil 6.6%) for very effective termite and perimeter pest control applications. The active ingredient, imidacloprid is used in Dominion 2L and and the Fipronil is used in both Taurus SC and Termidor SC. It not only controls termites and ants, but a number of the outside perimeter pests.
FUSE Foam is an expanding foam with a 30:1 expansion ratio to foam into ant and termite nests and galleries and structural voids. When sprayed, FUSE Foam expands with an expansion ratio of 30:1, uses one oz of product in approximately 5 seconds producing about 1 quart of foam.
FUSE Termiticide (Non-Repellent)
FUSE is non-repellent; therefore, termites and other insects do not know that Fuse treatment is there. Pest readily enter a treated zone, picking up a lethal dose and in the case of social insects like termites and ants, sharing that dose with their nest mates. So there is a greater chance of taking out the entire colony, increasing your success. Independent studies show that FUSE as a non-repellent readily transfers from treated "donor" termites to their untreated "recipient" nest mates.
- FUSE 27.5 yields between 50-100 gallons of finished solution, mixed between 0.3 oz -0.6 oz per gallon.
FUSE Insecticide -Perimeter Pest Applications - Why It Is Important
FUSE offers flexible exterior perimeter pest control application options as compared to products containing fipronil alone, such as Termidor or Taurus. FUSE may be applied as a perimeter treatment up to eight times a year. Applications permitted by the product label are based on the rate and spray swath chosen. Termidor and Taurus are limited to twice a year perimeter control spraying.

How FUSE works
Since FUSE has a combination of two different active ingredients, it has two different modes of action.
- The Imidacloprid attacks the nervous system of insects by their nicotine acetylcholine receptors.
- The Fipronil blocks GABA chloride channels (prevents chloride ions) that are needed in the insects nervous system.
- Unique combination of imidacloprid and fipronil
- Flexible perimeter exterior treatments
