Termidor SC can be applied around a mobile home if used as directed.
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 can stay in the ground for at least 10 years. We still do not recommend that you consume any edibles that have grown in the treated area.
Termidor SC contains fipronil, which is not well absorbed by plants when it is applied to the soil. If fipronil does get into plants, it can partially break down, reducing any risk of translocating. According to the maufacturer, it is best to not apply Termidor within one foot of the drip line of edibles but does not mention ornamentals.
Termidor SC is the top termite product on the market for treatment and prevention.Termidor SC is completely undetectable by subterranean termites and once termites touch it they contact, ingest and spread the termiticide until it eliminates the entire colony and it will last for about 10 years in the soil.

When applying Termidor SC to a home with a raised foundation for subterranean termites, you would trench around the outside of the foundation and around each pier/post accessible under the crawlspace. Everywhere you dig you will follow the method of digging a 6x6 trench and use 4 gallons to every 10 linear feet. There are complete instructions on the Termidor SC product label (page 5) on how to use the product in an accessible and inaccessible crawlspace.
Termidor SC would be applied as a foaming application only to directly spot treat active infestations. This can be done anytime of year.
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.
