Termidor SC (the SC stands for Suspended Concentrate) is an excellent professional termite control product for killing termites and protecting your home from future infestations. In addition to its superior protection against termites, Termidor is an excellent do it yourself pest control product to have on hand as it also kills ant colonies, as well as many other insect pests. Termidor will protect your home and eliminate almost any termite problem in less than 90 days. In addition, when used as an in-ground barrier treatment, Termidor will protect your home or business for over 10 years.

Termidor controls all types of termites including subterranean, formosan, and drywood termites.

Termidor SC is also one of the best outdoor ant control products that money can buy. An exterior above ground spray one foot up and one foot out is all you need to knock out ant colonies and carpenter ants trying to invade your home!

How To Apply Termidor SC - Termidor Termite Treatment (Video)



Article: How to do a Termite Treatment

How Termidor SC Works

Advanced undetectable technology
Termidor is made from a revolutionary new nonrepellent or "undetectable" chemical technology treatment. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid Termidor. Instead they contact, ingest, and share it with their nestmates. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can find breaks in or avoid completely.

The "Transfer Effect"
Termites who contact Termidor transfer it to every other termite they in turn contact, in a unique process called the "Transfer Effect." And because Termidor is engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire termite population.

Better than bait... without the wait
Baits can take years to control a termite colony. Termidor begins working immediately to wipe out termites inside and immediately surrounding your home. Termidor is the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating termite populations--up to six-times faster than bait.

Termidor for Ant Control:

Chances are that the ants in your house actually have their nest outside where they travel back and forth for food and water. So, since they live outside, it makes sense to control them there. Termidor SC can be applied above ground to the exterior foundation walls of your house, creating a treated area of protection for excellent ant control.

Unlike older insecticides, Termidor can't be smelled, tasted, or even felt by ants. So they crawl through the treated area, not knowing that by ingesting treated materials or merely contacting the insecticide, they'll die.

Termidor is unique because ants not directly exposed to the Termidor-treated area will be controlled as they come into contact with affected ants. This Transfer Effect means you'll see its effects on ants in one to three days, and most species will be controlled within the first week following the treatment.

Termidor for Carpenter Ants

Many people ask us if Termidor SC can be used to treat Carpenter Ants. The answer is yes. Termidor SC is one of the most effective products on the market today for treating Carpenter Ants.

*Termidor SC may take up to 90 days to kill termites depending on the colony size.

Target Uses of Termidor SC

Termidor SC is the termiticide most widely used by professional pest control companies. It is also terrific for ant control outdoors around the perimeter of structures. Termidor SC can be used for pre-construction and post-construction termite treatments, for prevention and for active infestations. Termidor SC is also labeled for several other crawling pests as an outdoor perimeter treatment.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Fipronil 9.1%

Termidor SC Application Instructions

Always read the product label completely before use.

1. For Termite Control: To protect your home from future termite infestations, Termidor must be mixed with water and poured in a 6-inch deep trench that is dug around the foundation of the home. Please read below for more information.

2. For Control of Ants and other Target Pests: Termidor is mixed at a rate of .80 fl oz. to one gallon of water in a pump sprayer and sprayed around the outside foundation of the home. For example, you would spray 1 foot up the foundation of your home, and 1 foot out onto the ground.  The treatment will last about 4-6  months, and will then need to be reapplied.

For Termite Control, each 20 oz. bottle will make 24 gallons of solution and treats 60 lineal feet of trenching. For termite pre-treatment use 1 gallon of finished solution per 10 sq. ft.  For ant and general insect control, each 20 oz. bottle will make about 24 gallons of diluted solution and will treat approximately 16,600 sq. ft. (You will need to use approximately 1.5 gal of diluted solution per 1,000 sq. ft.)

Standard Application Dilution Rates / Mixing Rations for Termidor SC:

*For Termite control mix at a rate of 0.80 fl. oz. for each gallon of water used.

* For ant and general insect control around the exterior of a structure the mix rate is 0.80 fl. oz. per gallon of water.

How much Termidor should I buy?
One 20 oz. bottle of Termidor will make 24 gallons of finished solution and will treat approx. 60 lineal feet around your home for a termite treatment.

Use 4 gallons of finished solution per 10 lineal feet around the house.

Example: A home with 200 lineal feet around the foundation would require 4 bottles of Termidor. Most homes require at least 4 bottles.

Termidor SC is for use in the following areas:

Outside surfaces and along foundation of Residential, institutional, commercial and industrial buildings and utility enclosures; wall voids of listed structures; NOT for indoor use; for pre-construction and post-construction treatment for termites, including concrete structures such as patios, porches, sidewalks and foundation slabs; concrete slab (including monolithic, floating and supported concrete slabs) on ground or in basements; hollow block foundations or voids in masonry; structures with French drains and sump pumps; basement structures; crawl spaces; around bath traps and shower drains; posts, poles, and wood landscape ornamentation

Indoors

*Termidor SC is for Outdoor use only. Indoor spraying is limited to spot treatments for live termite infestations. The product cannot be used indoors for ant or pest control.

Outdoors

Termite Control – See How to Do a Termite Treatment

Termidor is most often used as an in-ground treatment, where it is mixed and then poured in a trench around a house to create a barrier against future termite infestations. However, the product can also be applied to live termite infestations as a liquid spray, liquid dilution or as a foam application. Please see the label for detailed use instructions.

A professional company that would come and treat your house with Termidor would usually have either a 50 gallon or 100 gallon spray rig on the back of their truck, with a hammer drill for drilling holes in your garage concrete slab, if you have one, and slabs around your house like porches and patios. Commercial rental places, such as United Rentals, may have these products.

Most homeowners that apply Termidor themselves use a 5 gallon bucket. It takes longer, because you can only mix 5 gallons at a time, but it gets the job done. You should apply 4 gallons of Termidor every 10 lineal feet around the foundation of your home. Homeowners can estimate 4 gallons by using a 5 gallon bucket and only filling the bucket most of the way full. You will need to dig a small trench against the foundation of the home about 6 inches deep and 6 inches wide, into which you will pour the finished solution and mix it with the soil. It is also important to treat the backfill, which is the dirt that you took out of the trench laying next to it. If you just put this dirt back untreated, the termites could go through this untreated section and not be affected. You should either push the dirt back in right away to mix with the 4 gallons you put in the trench, or take a one gallon sprayer and soak the backfill dirt down before pushing it back in the trench. This will create a termite-proof barrier around your home that will last up to 10 years. Please read the label carefully when applying Termidor as it will give more detailed instructions and precautions.

    5 of 5 stars  The Writing on the Wall
    By Greg in Omaha, NE on 01/31/2010
    Verified Purchase

    As a termite sales representative for a major pest control company I saw the “writing on the wall” several years ago when Termidor first became available. Why would someone pay thousands of dollars for a termite treatment and hundreds of dollars every year to maintain a guarantee when a product so easy to use and so effective was available. Two years ago, after leaving the Company, I discovered that my house was re-infested with termites. I spot treated the area where I found the termites with Termidor purchased from Do My Own Pest Control and I placed some wood monitors in the area a few weeks later; they took no hits. This past Summer I noticed some damage on my siding and as I continued to pull off pieces I found a lot of termite damage, but no termites. Termidor works because the treatment does not have to be perfect. Get some in the area where they are active and they will carry it back to the colony. There is no need to pay for costly drilling inside your home anymore.

    5 of 5 stars  Knocked out my ant problem!
    By Charles on 08/29/2008

    First, I was impressed with just the bottle. Termidor SC is designed so you can pour exactly the right amount of mix with no trouble. Second, I have had a chronic carpenter ant problem for years. It costs a minimum of $200 for a professional to do 1 treatment, or $350 for a year. For about $70 total and 20 minutes of my time, I knocked out the ant problem. I have enough left over for at least three years. All the ants running up and down and inside my house walls disappeared in a couple of hours. There are dead ants everywhere outdoors, with a couple staggering around in circles.

    5 of 5 stars  Termites Eating My Pool Liner.... NO MORE!
    By Chip in Pittsburgh, PA on 09/21/2009

    I couldn't figure out why my above ground pool was losing water. I hired a professional "leak buster" outfit to help me find the source. It turned out there wasn't one hole in my liner, there were thousands of tiny holes caused by moisture seeking subterranean termites! I tried treating the issue myself with some Home Depot bait stakes. That liner lasted 1 season before the pool started losing water again. I somehow found this site and started to research this Termidor stuff. I bought a jug and a pump sprayer. Since the lining needed replaced (again) I got all set up. When the old lining was removed, I soaked the sand base with my sprayer filled with the Termidor solution. I replaced the liner. Then, I sprayed the outside base of the pool and let the solution roll down the sides through the gravel. Since I had about 12 bait stake holes, I pumped them full of the diluted solution as well. I used the entire bottle on my pool. It's been two full seasons since I treated with Termidor and needless to say, I am thrilled. Not even a hint of termites! If I were to ever install a pool again, I would treat with Termidor as a preventative measure. I had no idea termites hunted for water in swimming pools. I highly recommend this product and this website!

    5 of 5 stars  I am sold!
    By Myron on 09/03/2008

    An excellent product. I do maintenance for our church and school and use Termidor SC for ant control. I was spraying or using granules every week. This product has sold me on a true ant control product that you only have to use every once in awhile. This product will save you money because of time and labor involved in normal products.

    By Sarah in Front Royal, VA on 07/13/2018

    I used to be a pestcontrol tech and i know all about termidor SC. When my husband and i moved into our new house about a month ago the WDI said we were fine..but sure enough we move in and then there were carpenter ants running around everywhere. So I bought this, sprayed it aroud the perimeter of the house and deck, and the wood piers of the house, and viola! ( used one gallon) No more carpenter ants! The company i used to work for would have charged me $800 for treatment but I only paid 64$ and have mutiple treatments to use when they come back. It also prevented any spiders and other insects from coming in the house. Seriously if you dont wanna get ripped off and are comfortable spraying pesticides buy this product!!

QIs there a difference between Termidor and Termidor SC?
Is there a difference between Termidor and Termidor SC? Is the Termidor only for licensed professionals? Is it stronger?

A

Termidor and Termidor SC are the same product, its just that no one ever says the SC part. SC stands for suspended concentrate. This is the same product the professionals use. The only difference is that licensed professionals can buy this product in larger bottles.  Termidor is made in a larger 78 oz bottle, but it can only be sold to homeowners in the 20 oz bottle.

QWhat is the difference between Termidor 80 WG and Termidor SC?

ABoth Termidor 80 WG and Termidor SC when mixed with water, make the same type of solution.  The "WG" in Termidor 80 WG stand for wettable granule.  The "SC" in Termidor SC stands for suspended concentrate.  They are just different formulations of the same product.  The Termidor 80 WG is easier for professional termite control operators to carry in their trucks, and it is easier to mix.  However, Termidor 80 WG cannot be sold to homeowners, it can only be sold to licensed professionals.  Only the Termidor SC in the 20 oz bottle can be sold to homeowners for personal use.

QCan Termidor SC be applied to the surface only with no trench?
If a trench is needed, how deep does it need to be?

ATermidor SC can only be applied to the top of the soil when you are using it as a perimeter pest control treatment against ants.  If you are using Termidor SC to treat for active termites, or to protect your home against termites, you must apply the product into a trench.  This is because termites do not walk across the ground like ants do, they live beneath the soil and enter your home below the grade level of the dirt.  Therefore, you must place the Termidor SC into the ground to have a chance at them coming into contact with the product.  Please read our informational article written for homeowners:  "How To Do a Termite Treatment" which will tell you how deep to dig the trench and how to properly apply Termidor around your home.

08/05/2018 Raul from Miami, Fl

QCan I use Termidior SC on the drywood termites in the wood on my outdoor terrace?

A

 For Termidor SC to work on Drywood termites, you have to drill directly into the piece of wood the termites are in and inject Termidor into the wood.  Termidor does not penetrate into wood, so you have to inject it into the center.  It has to touch the termites to work, but the benefit is that it only has to contact a few termites, and then they can pass it on to the rest of the colony. 

For Drywood termite treatments on wood, we recommend applying a product called Bora-Care. This product is applied to raw wood and penetrates further than any other product.

QI am putting a new kitchen plywood subfloor can I use Termidor for preventative termite treatment

A

Termidor is not a wood treatment product. Timbor is a great product, but it does not penetrate or last as long as another product made by the same company called Bora-Care.  Bora-Care is the best wood treatment product available because it penetrates all the way through a piece of wood where Timbor will only penetrate the outer coating.  If you have older wood then you should always use Bora-CareBora-Care will also stay in the wood forever, preventing any new infestations for years to come.

QBrick Basement Treatment
My home was built in 1923 and has a full basement with brick walls. I started removing some wood walls and noticed live termites where one of the wood walls was attached to the brick. The termites were entering right where the brick wall meet the concrete floor through a cracked mortar joint. This entry point is aprox 4 feet below grade. I have ordered product to do a perimeter treatment of the house. Is there anything special I need to do in addition to the standard perimeter treatment since the termites are entering the basement so far below grade?

A

If you are doing a perimeter treatment and there is a basement below grade, then the recommended treatment would involve rodding in addition to the standard 6 in x 6 in trench. A professional company would use a long rod attached to a truck spray rig to inject more termiticide every 12 inches to a depth of at least 4 feet. Since a homeowner does not have those tools, you could use a hollow rod or pipe, or a long drill bit (18-24 inches) to help create space to force more termiticide into the ground, ideally at least what you would use for regular treatment, which averages about ½ gallon of solution every 12 inches.

QAfter the 6x6 perimeter trench has been treated, would it be advisable to fill the trench with rock or gravel
Would filling the trench with rock or gravel allow for future treatments without re-digging the trench as the rock/gravel would remain permeable? Perhaps this would reduce effectiveness of the treatment as it would also allow water to access the treated soil.

A

The trench should be filled back with the soil you removed to create it so that it can be treated and create the area termites will go through to contact the Termidor SC.  It will last 10 years or more in the soil.

QWhat to use outside for ants
We have these small ant like bugs in the bathroom. They are about the size of a PEN DOT. We have looked for intrusion but could not find anything. They are coming from outside. So we need a chemical that's powerful and waterproof. We live in Savannah

A

 

Termidor SC is the # 1 choice for ant control around the outside of your home. Termidor SC is a non-repellent insecticide that also has a transfer effect. That means that ants cannot tell that the Termidor SC is there and will walk right over it and then pick the product up on their bodies and inadvertantly carry it back to the colony, then through normal social interaction the ants spread the Termidor SC and wipe out the colony. Termidor SC only needs to be applied two times per year and is effective for a wide variety of insects including ants, centipedes, roaches, spiders, silverfish, wasps and many other nuisance insects.

Termidor SC does need to be applied directly to soil.  If you have concrete up against the foundation around the home you would need to drive every 10-12 inches through it and inject/spray ½ gallon into every hole as outlined in our Prevention guide here

If concrete such as a carport slab or sidewalk is against the foundation in the area where you need to treat, you will be required to drill through the concrete to apply the termiticide solution to the soil. Using the hammer drill with a 1/2" x 18" concrete drill bit, drill holes every 12" into the concrete along the foundation wall.

You are not only drilling through just the concrete here, but also as deep as you can into the dirt. The deeper the better. Once the holes are drilled, you fill at the same rate you did the trench, 4 gallons per 10 feet. If you drilled the holes 12 inches apart, then you would have 10 holes over 10 feet that you are trying to fill with 4 gallons. This works out to be a little less than half a gallon per hole. To fill these I would recommend using the one gallon sprayer on a "pin stream" setting so you can force the liquid down the hole and not splash it everywhere. You can also use a funnel and pour the termiticide down the holes. It is difficult to get 4 gallons per 10 feet in the holes, so it is important that you use a long drill bit, at least 18" long so you can bore out enough dirt to hold the termiticide. Sometimes the ground is slow to soak up the termiticide you place in the holes. You may need to fill the holes, then go work on something else for an hour, come back and fill them again, go work on something else... 3 to 4 times to get the proper amount down the holes. Once the holes are filled all you need to do is patch them with a concrete patch filler you can buy at a home improvement or hardware store or you can use our Trebor plugs that will close the hole with no concrete mess.
