    Q
    Can I use Termidor SC if I put down something for carpenter ants and termites?
    I found active termites and had some spectracide Termite and carpenter ant killer in ready to use bottle so I dumped the whole thing across a 15 ft. area. I did not dig out any dirt before dumping, I just dumped. Can I still use the termidor? This was about a month ago that I poured the stuff on the ground. I also needed to know how these commercial companys make such neat trenches, do you have any suggestions?
    A
    We recommend that you check the product label of the product that was previously used in that area for the length of time of the residual prior to applying any product in that area. You may also call the manufacturer of the product for the information.

    Q
    What is good to spray a large lot for crazy ants, and also spray indoors?
    A
    Termidor SC used outdoors and Phantom used indoors have been the most effective products to control Crazy Raspberry Ants. Ant baits and synthetic pyrethroid insecticides do not seem to do an effective job controlling this ant species. Texas A&M University has done extensive research regarding these ants and you can find detailed articles on their extension website. We have linked a specific article about them HERE. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

    Q
    Do I have to dig a trench around my pillow blocks under my house to treat for termites?
    A

    If the pillow blocks are under the surface you will not need to dig around them for you treatment. You will want to focus on treating outside around the structure for your trenching area so that the solution will absorb into soil enough to leave a residual where the termites are migrating from. Please let us know if you need more information.

    Q
    We have millipedes bad! What methods would you use with Termidor SC to get rid of them?
    They are getting into my basement, and my building, they're all over my driveway, and all over my Foundation! It's driving us crazy!
    A

    Termidor SC can only be applied outside around the foundation 1 to 2 feet up and out for general pest control but you would not treat on porous surfaces such as a driveway.. We do have a guide here that can help for getting rid of millipedes.  For areas further out in the yard and around the perimeter edges of the driveway you can use something like Talstar P.

    Q
    How do I apply Termidor SC before pouring a tension slab with piers and beams?
    I will be pouring a post tension slab with piers and beams and want to pre treat for termites. Where should I apply the Termidor SC? I'm thinking around all the plumbing penetrations & the 2' deep exterior footer. Before the concrete is poured a plastic sheeting will be put down, do you apply the Termidor before the plastic is put down or can you apply it on top of the plastic?
    A

    Termidor SC should be applied directly to the soil. It is recommended that you treat around each pier. You will mix at a rate of .80 fl oz. for each gallon of water used. Each 20 oz bottle will make 25 gallons of solution and treats 60 lineal feet of trenching. You could also treat the wood directly with Boracare. You will use a 5:1 ratio. This will last for the life of the wood.

    We would also recommend that you check out our Termite Guide. It has very useful information and tips on how to treat and prevent termites.

    Q
    How wet do I spray Termidor SC: just fog it or real wet?
    A

    When apply Termidor SC as a perimeter spray, apply at a rate of 1.5 gallons of solution per 1,000 square feet, using 0.8 ounces of concentrate per gallon of water. You should spray to evenly cover with a low-pressure coarse spray, so you do not need to drench the areas you are treating. Termidor SC should be used in a pressurized sprayer, not in any type of fogging or misting machine. For general perimeter treatments with Termidor SC, see the last two pages of the product label.
