"Hey I'm Chris the Bug Guy from, and today I'm going to show you how to get rid of termites using Termidor SC. Termidor SC is considered the #1 non-repellent termiticide on the market for treating termites with the active ingredient fipronil. Most professional companies provide Termidor termite treatments because once you apply it, it lasts for over 10 years, and it kills termite colonies in as little as 90 days. Termidor is a concentrate that comes in a 20 oz bottle. One bottle can make 25 gallons of finished solution and treat 60 lineal feet. Each house usually needs 3-4 bottles. Now let's go outside and show you how to use Termidor in the trenches around your house. Step 1 is digging the trench. The trench against your house should be 6" wide and 6" deep. You can use a shovel or a pick axe, and the trench will be directly against the foundation. Once you have dug the trench, it is 4 gallons per 10 feet, 10 lineal feet, along the house. So you are going to mix in the termiticide, make a line on the bucket if you need to for 4 gallons, and once it's mixed we're going to evenly distribute it over the trench. So we have a 10' section over here. You are going to evenly distribute those 4 gallons over the 10', and then move on to the next section. By the time you get back around this should have dissipated into the soil. Now once you have finished trenching and filling the trench with the termiticide, and it's had time to dissipate into the soil you need to put the back fill back into the trench. Now the dirt right now is untreated. This is the dirt we took out of the trench, but you want to make sure that you treat it before you put it back in because you don't want a layer of untreated soil on top of the treated soil. If termites happen to go right near the surface, they are going to skip the termiticide you placed in the trench. So this is a lot easier with two people. You want to mix some termiticide in a 1 gallon pump sprayer, and then you want to have a shovel or a rake to push the dirt back in the trench. The person with the sprayer is going to go ahead and start just wetting the dirt down, not so much that it is muddy, but just start wetting the dirt down, and as you are pushing it back in with the shovel or rake, the other person is going to wet it down. Just move on down the line. Let him wet it down a little bit. As you shovel it back in they're just going to wet down that back fill and get it mixed well with the termiticide. Now your house is completely protected by the professional termiticide. I hope you found this video useful. For more information click here."
