Termidor SC cannot be applied indoors or for flea control. We do carry an Indoor Flea Kit that will be great for this application. You will vacuum daily (discarding the bag or emptying the canister after each use) and spray once every two weeks. It is highly recommended to make a minimum of two applications indoors but may require additional applications depending on the level of fleas.
Termites do not attack live, healthy trees. If the tree has been damaged by termites it would be advisable to remove the tree and perform a liquid termite soil treatment with Termidor SC to ensure subterranean termites to not find a food source inside of your home. Please take a few minutes to read our article How to Perform a Termite Treatment which will explain how to do the treatment in laymens terms and also explain any needed equipment. Most folks find that they only need a 5 gallon bucket and perhaps a drill in some situations. You should follow the Termidor product label and you should mix Termidor with water as specified. No special equipment is needed to diltute Termidor because it is a water based product and readily mixes with water.
Termidor SC is not labeled to be used inside except for spot treating active infestations. If applied as a crack and crevice spray inside cabinets it would be recommended to thoroughly clean the area with warm soap and water or an all-purpose surface cleaner.
If you are doing a trench application for termites and there is concrete surrounding the foundation, then holes will need to be drilled all around the home to properly apply the Termidor SC. The holes need to be drilled every 10-12 inches apart, 18 inches in depth to reach the soil beneath the concrete and anywhere from 3/8 inch – ½ inch in diameter. Please refer to our Termite Treatment Guide for a more in depth step by step on how to treat your home for subterranean termites.
We recommend that you treat the inside and the outside of the home with one of our Roach Control Kits. They include an insecticide, an insect growth regulator (IGR) and a roach bait gel. Termidor SC can be applied only on the outside of the home once every six months (1 ft up and 1 ft out directly around the structure). Below are some great articles with information on the treatment for roaches that you might find extremely helpful. Please read the product labels for each product for specific application instructions. If you need additional advice, please contact us at 866.581.7378.
