Does the time of year or temperature of ground change the effectiveness of Termidor? I live in Texas w/ 96+ temp and currently in a drought condition. Should I wait for spring or fall to apply?


When it comes to termites, you should never wait.  Especially if you are worried about activity.  The dryer the soil the better for Termidor SC.  Termidor SC is made to bond to the soil, and the less moisture in the ground, the easier it is for it to take hold and provide long lasting protection.  The only temperature that effects Termidor SC is when it is below freezing.  Termidor SC should not be applied if the ground is below freezing, or it will not take hold.  The 96 degrees will effect you, but not the Termidor SC.  Drink LOTS of Water!
