FUSE Termiticide/Insecticide contains both imidacloprid and fipronil as its active ingredients. Both ingredients work by affecting the insects' nervous systems, creating a highly effective method of pest control. It is labeled for termite and perimeter pest control applications. In addition to termites, Fuse will control many other insect pests including ants, earwigs, millipedes, boxelder bugs, silverfish, and pillbugs. Please consult the label for a complete list. Fuse is non-repellant, which means that the insects cannot detect it and will readily come into contact with it. In doing so, they will receive a lethal dose of the insecticide. With insects such as termites and ants, they will also carry this lethal dose back to the colony and spread it among the other insects as well.
* Fuse is not labeled to be used directly on pets
Fuse is now available in a 7.5 oz bottle. This is a convenient size for backpack, handheld sprayer and large tank applications. One bottle will make up to 25 gallons and is great for exterior perimeter pest programs.

FUSE contains imidacloprid and fipronil. Both act in the insects’ nervous systems, but in different locations. Imidacloprid targets post-synaptic nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in insects, causing over-stimulation of the insects’ nervous systems. Fipronil acts as a post-synaptic gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) inhibitor, also resulting in over-stimulation of the insects’ nervous systems.
For subterranean termite control, specific treatment recommendations may differ due to regulations, treatment procedures, soil types, construction practices and other factors. The purpose of chemical soil treatment for termite control is to establish a continuous treated zone (horizontal and/or vertical) between the wood and other cellulose material in the structure and the termite colonies in the soil. The establishment of an aerial or above ground colony may require additional treatments to control the termites, as well as landscape modifications, and/or structural repairs to deny termites of a moisture source. Use a 0.067% to 0.13% dilution based on current recommendations. For a typical control situation, a 0.067% dilution is used. A 0.13% dilution may be used when a severe or persistent infestation exists.
