    Q
    Is Termidor SC safe for horses even after it dries?
    We have two horses on our property that are stalled at night but out in the yard during the day grazing on the grass. We are able to separate the front and back yards if needed by closing the gates on our property. If we were to treat one half while keeping the horses on the other half, would this product be safe for the horses once it dries (say 3-4 days following the application)?
    A

    Termidor SC is only labeled to be used adjacent to a structure 1 to 2 feet up and out.  It cannot be used in lawns nor can it be used where animals graze.

    Q
    Unable to dig trench too rocky will spraying area heavily be effective
    A
     Termidor needs to be put into the ground give 10 years of protection. You may want to try drilling to get the Termidor into the ground so that it can bind with the soil. Please read our article Barrier and Soil termite treatment.

    Q
    Can you use Termidor SC if you have a well?
    We live in the country and have a well and septic system. Is this safe to use in this case. We found termites in our out building. How many bottles should we purchase?
    A

    The Termidor SC product label states that you cannot use Termidor SC closer than 5 feet from a well or cistern. The amount of product you will need will be dependent on the total linear footage you’re treating.  One 20 ounce bottle will treat approximate 60 linear feet of trenching.

    Q
    What 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

    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.

    Q
    Will Termidor uptake into plants and affect pollinators or other insects?
    I plan to do a termite treatment around the house foundation were I have plants with flowers within a minimum of 2 ft of the treatment area. Once Termidor has dried and bound to the soil, will Termidor continue to uptake into the plant and harm the pollinator insects such at bees?
    A

    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.

    Q
    drilling every 10 to 12 inches in concrete doesnt this create a weak spot in your slab or a breaking point?
    A
    The 10 -12 inches spacing is the required amount to ensure that the drilling will not cause weakness in the concrete slab. You do not want to drill any more than 1/2 inch wide.

    Q
    Is it true that Termidor is essentially ineffective on exposed wood (for termites) once it has dried?
    Is there no residual benefit?
    A
    Termidor SC is formulated specifically to bond to soil molecules and will last for around 10 years when applied properly to soil. When applied to wood Termidor SC will last at most for about 6 weeks. If you are looking for a long lasting product to treat or protect wood you should check out Bora-Care.

    Q
    Termites in Alder trees
    I have termites in my Alder trees in So California. I purchased some Termidor SC from you guys. Should I mix and pour around the base of the infected tree or inject into tree limbs that already have died from termites? Help!
    A
    Termidor cannot be used in the manner you have described and is not labeled for use on trees as you described.  Termites do not normally attack live, healthy trees so you most likely will not find any products that will work as a ground barrier around the trees.  Most people are primarily concerned with protecting the big investment, their home, and Termidor would be the product to use for that.  It is only labeled to be used adjacent to the structure though.  Please take a moment to read over our article on "How to do a Termite Treatment" for complete details

    Q
    What is the best product for termite prevention?
    A

    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.  You should perform a liquid termite treatment in the ground to get the termites where they are entering your house and for furture prevention.Please take a few moments to review our article and videos on How to Get Rid of Termites prior to treating.

    Q
    What is the best approach to apply Termidor to a raised home on brick pillars?
    Our home is raised on brick pillars, and is about 60 years old. Fermosan termites are a big consideration in our area. I’m also curious about using Termidor to spray for ants and spiders under the home, in the crawl space. How often would the Termidor spray treatment be required under the home as a protective barrier?
    A

    Termidor SC is sprayed twice a year for general pest control at 0.8 fl oz per gallon of water, sprayed 1 to 2 feet up the foundation and out on the ground.

  • Asked by Rick from Greenville, Sc
    01/24/2017
    Q
    When using Termidor SC to treat a home on a slab, do you only treat the outside of the home via trench?
    Do you also need to drill holes inside the perimeter of the home and apply there or only outside?
    A

    When doing a termite treatment with Termidor SC, on a slab, the trenching method is going to be most effective. It is only necessary to drill holes if you have a garage, patio or any other contiguous slabs against your home. Please take a look at our Termite Treatment Guide

  • Asked by Jeremy from Virginia Beach
    10/11/2018
    Q
    Can I just spray 4 gallons of Termidor SC per 10 feet around the entire inside of the crawlspace and the piers? Do I have to trench?
    And treat the entire outside foundation as well.
    A

    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.

  • Asked by Tem from Boone, Nc
    12/02/2017
    Q
    While spot spraying the interior for pests, I am wondering if Termidor SC will work on flea pest control?
    A

    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.
