    Q
    Do I still use the trench method to apply Termidor SC when my lower level floor is 4ft below grade?
    I have a split level home. The front side is 4ft below grade to the lower level floor. Do i still apply termidor using the trench method at the standard mix to treat for subterranean termites? A stump near my house had a swarm last week and just trying to treat my home for piece of mind.
    A

    Yes, you would still apply Termidor SC or whatever termiticide you are using in the 6 in x 6 in trench at the standard rate of 4 gallons per 10 linear feet. Where you would apply additional product would be where there are footers, where you would use a termite rod or hollow tube to apply additional product from grade to the top of the footing.  Per page 7 of the product label

     When the footing is more than 4 feet below grade, the applicator has the option to either (1) trench and rod to a minimum depth of 4 feet into the trench along the foundation walls or (2) trench alone along the foundation walls to a minimum depth of 4 feet. The actual depth of treatment will vary depending on soil type, degree of compaction, and location of termite activity. When the top of the footing is exposed, the applicator must treat the soil adjacent to the footing to a depth of 4 feet but not to exceed the bottom of the footing. DO NOT treat a structure below the bottom of the footing.

    Q
    Can Termidor SC be used indoor for roaches, and is it safe for my dogs?
    A
    No, Termidor SC should not be applied indoors at all. It is an exterior treatment product only. We do carry Roach Control Kits that are very effective in controlling this type of insect indoors and/or outside. Any of the products mentioned should be applied in the labeled areas when the animals are not in the area until completely dried.

    Q
    I treated my house 2 years ago with Termidor Sc and now I am seeing what looks to be dry wood termites, Why?
    I saw the Formosan termites at the end of May and through June, but now I see something different. I treated my house per directions and it still looks like I have a problem. What should I do? What should I use?
    A

    Drywood termites are all contained in a piece of wood.  They do not go back to the ground like subterranean termites. So if you did a trench with Termidor it will not treat the Dry wood termites. Please see our Drywood Termite Control Page.

    Q
    Our house has a crawl space. Can we spray Termidor directly on the ground to prevent termites?
    A
    Spraying just on the surface of the ground with Termidor SC will not offer any protection from termites in the crawl space.  We would recommend doing the crawl space with Termidor by trenching the inside perimeter and around all of the piers, and treat just as you would around the outside.  We have a great video with instructions here on how to do so.

    Q
    Should plumbing chases be treated with Termidor SC where the pipes penetrate the ground?
    My house is a single story with a concrete slab on grade foundation and has interior plumbing chases easily accessible through access panels. When a panel is opened, I can see the water and sewer pipes going directly into the untreated soil below. Should the exposed soil in these cavities be sprayed or soaked as part of the treatment process? Does Termidor give off dangerous gases?
    A

    If you are able to access the soil around the pipes, yes, it would be recommended to treat the top few inches with Termidor SC around them.    There is no harmful fumes released.

    Q
    How come termidor sc is not sinking in my concrete?
    I drilled 1/2" wide and about 20" deep on my concrete, but my termiticite is not sinking in. Is there any solution to this?
    A

    Sometimes the ground is slow to soak up the Termidor SC 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.

    Q
    how to treat under slab house without drilling
    I believe the nest of the termites attacking our house is directly under it. Our house is on a slab but we cannot drill into it because we have radiant heat in the floors. In my research I've seen it mentioned that you can insert rods under the slab to treat but I cant find more detail on how to best do this...and we would like to do it ourselves. Please advise oh how to do this!
    A

    Rodding under the slab of a house from the exterior is a complex and detailed process that we do not recommend attempting yourself. We recommend that you contact a local reputable termite company for an inspection and estimate for something like this. If you have termites in the home, then you can spot treat where there are active termites using a ready-to-use termiticide foam such as Termidor Foam which will transfer throughout the rest of that termite colony.

    Q
    I need 4 to 6 bottles of Termidor. How many to a case and is there a case lot discount?
    Besides treating foundation perimeter, have signs of termite activity in two areas of open soil, 9'x18' and 15'x15' where lumber was left on ground. What is recommended to treat those areas? And what quantity?
    A

    There are 4 bottles to a case of Termidor SC. For this particular product there is not a lot discount available but we do offer fast, free shipping! We apologize for any inconvenience. Termidor SC is labeled to treat carton nests only away from the structure. The trench and drilling up against the foundation of the structure is very important. Please refer to our termite treatment article for additional helpful information on mixing and application.

    Q
    Can Termidor SC be applied to soil that has growing on it?
    A

    Termidor SC can be applied to the soil topically (1 ft up and 1 ft out directly up against the foundation) and in a trench for termite control. There should not be any harm done to any grass sprayed.

    Q
    What is the best product for controlling ghost ants
    A
    The most effective way to get rid of ants will be to use a product that will not only kill the ants that actually come into contact with treated surfaces but will also be transferred back to the nest. There are a variety of liquid concentrates that work with a transfer effect such as Termidor SC, Taurus SC, Dominion 2L and Adonis 2F. All of these products are for use outdoors only and should be sprayed directly on or immediately adjacent to the structure for ant control (they cannot be used indoors and they cannot be broadcast sprayed outdoors and they cannot be used on edible vegetation). You can also use ant baits indoors and outdoors for ghost ant control. Ant Baits will be picked up by the foraging ants and carried back to the nesting area and shared. Most folks choose to use a combination of products. They use ant baits indoors and in sensitive areas and they use the liquid concentrates outdoors

    Q
    Termite tubes are back twice in 3 years since professional service
    Termite tubes are back twice in 3 years since professional install, The first time was in laundry room ceiling which is just inside the garage in the front of the house. - they foamed that area and it seems fine now. Now there is one tube coming up from the center expansion joint if the garage. No sighs of any tubes on any interior of exterior walls any part of the house. If this is one spot is in the center expansion joint in the garage (don't know yet) what should te be addressing. At minimum drilling inside the garage and trenching the outside. Maybe drilling center of expansion joint?- they won't re-do the whole house, just the affected area. which seems to be the front. I'm probably going to trench treat the rest of my exterior
    A

    If that expansion joint is the only area of activity and Termidor SC was used for the initial treatment, most professionals would just treat that area of localized activity. It is possible the termites there came from a colony deep under the soil surface where they would not have come into contact with the existing liquid barrier. You would treat the expansion joint similarly to how you would treat the foundation, using 4 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet, applying evenly into drilled holes. Instead of placing the holes all on one side, however, you would drill them in a zig-zag pattern along the expansion joint. Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Q
    Can I still use Demon WP for perimeter?
    I am probably going to be doing a Termidor treatment, but am wondering if continuing perimeter treatments of Demon will have any negative effect on the termidor treatment and vice versa. I have used demon to get rid of spiders and have had great results...no roaches/bugs at all.
    A
    When Termidor SC is used as a termite treatment it is put in a trench and then covered up with the back fill and is mainly going to effect subterranean termites. When Demon WP is used as a perimeter treatment it is applied topically and will not contact the trenching treatment at all. You can use both products around the same structure without them interfering with each other as long as you follow the product labels on each product.

    Q
    For normal maintenance, how long will Termidor SC application last?
    A

    Termidor SC if sprayed around structure perimeters for ants and other insects can be reapplied every 6 months. If applied in a trench for Termites, it will bind with the soil and last up to 10 years.
