    Q
    If you use Termidor SC in a crawl space, do you need protective gear?
    We will be treating ourselves and need to know if we need protective gear (face mask, etc) to use in the crawl space.
    A

    You should wear chemical resistant gloves, long sleeve shirt, long pants and close toed shoes when applying Termidor. If you are applying the product in a non-ventilated area, a respirator is will be needed. Termidor is a safe product for most folks to use. We do encourage our customers to read the product label and the MSDS before they purchase a product to be sure they will be comfortable using it.

    Q
    What if don't trench around the house with Termidor SC?
    Will the treatment still serve the same purpose?
    A
    Termidor SC should be applied in a trench and drilled holes for a proper termite treatment so there is a complete barrier around the structure. If treated properly, it will last 10 years in the soil. If you are treating for ants, you will spray topically a foot up and a foot out directly up against the structure once every six months.

    Q
    Hand-held sprayer vs commercial one when applying Termidor SC?
    Should I be worried if I use a hand-held sprayer vs ask a pest control company to inject Termidor into the concrete slabs? Plus how would I keep track to make sure 0.4 gallon per hole is poured in?
    A
    To apply Termidor in the slabs you want to drill holes 18in deep and 12 in. apart and disperse the 4 gallons mixed solution per 10 feet into those holes. You can use any type of sprayer to inject the solution into the slab. The B&G Accuspary with termite injection tip would be very helpful when injecting the solution into the slabs.

    Q
    What do you recommend for a drywood termite infestation on a beam in the garage?
    After inspections by three different companies all have found signs of infestation only in this location, but two of them recommend fumigation, one will do spot treatment with Termidor for a lot of money. What method do you recommend for DIY?
    A
    If this is the only area, then Termidor would be a great choice.  Termidor does not penetrate through wood, so you cannot just apply it on the wood.  The trick is you have to drill holes into the center of the wood and inject it so it touches the termites.  As long as it only touches a few termites it will work.  You will only use a small amount of the Termidor, which is a concentrate, but the product will last for 5 years on the shelf and is also the best product for treating ants around your home as well.

  • Asked by Mike from Florence, Sc
    09/27/2013
    Q
    We are treating an active termite infestation with Termidor. Other than exterior trenching, what should we do?
    We've been told we have active termites under our house, which has a crawlspace foundation with concrete block piers. What should we do besides treating the exterior foundation with the Termidor SC? We've also been told that they are under the concrete steps. We have 10 rental properties and are trying to treat all of them.
    A
    If you know where the termites are active we do recommend directly treating that area. You should trench and treat around the wall inside the crawl space and trench and treat around each pier for best results. Drilling through the concrete steps to apply Termidor to the area under the steps is needed as well as many contractors hide buidling debris in these areas and termites are known to frequent this area.

  • Asked by Kim from United States
    04/16/2015
    Q
    Can I place the termite liquid treatment along the foundation of my home where there is just a small gap?
    The gap is between the foundation an a cement walkway. I plan to place backer rod and sikaflex to fill the gap. Would the treatment be effective if I placed it on the opposite side of the cement walkway (side not up against house)?
    A
    We would reommend drilling through the gap or 3 inches away from the foundation of your home. Holes should be spaced 12 inches apart and drill holes should be a minimum of 6 inches deep below the cooncrete. Concrete is typically 3-4 inches in depth, therefore, you wold need to drill a total of 10-12 inches.

  • Asked by Martha

    Q
    How do I use Termidor SC to get rid of termites in my front door trim?
    My husband is having trouble on how to apply it. What is the best way to do this?
    A
    You can mix Termidor SC in a one gallon hand pump sprayer and apply directly as a spot treatment to the affected area.  You can do this by taking the trim off and spraying the termites directly, or by drilling a hole and spraying in the wall void.  The bigger issue though is that your home has probably not had a termite treatment recently to protect it against termites in the first place.  You should read our "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article to learn how you can protect the rest of your home against future invasion.

  • Asked by Hayes from Monroe, Ga

    Q
    What size hole should I drill in the concrete slab adjacent to foundation to apply Termidor SC?
    I need to treat a concrete patio and walkway adjacent to the slab of the house. If I drill a hole each foot, how much liquid will I put in each hole? What kind of funnel do I use?
    A
    The hole needs to be 1/2 inch. You can use funnels found at a local discount store to apply the Termidor SC into the holes. You should drill a hole every 10-12 inches apart and disperse 4 gallons of solution evenly every 10 feet.

  • Asked by Clive from Encino Ca

    Q
    How do I inject termidor SC into holes and can it be done with the undiluted material?
    and can i purchase a small amount... Dry wood termites in painted 4x4 beams with small hole showing the dust and residues coming out
    A
    Termidor SC must be diluted according to the product instructions. The smallest container it comes in is the 20 oz bottle. In order to inject the liquid into the beams you will need to drill holes every couple of inches and use a sprayer with a pinpoint stream or a straw attachment to get the application into the holes. Another option would be to use Termidor Foam which comes in a ready to use can with the small attachments to get the foam into the drilled holes.

    Q
    When is it safe for children to be around when using Termidor inside?
    We are drilling holes inside our house on the concrete slab and using Termidor. Is it safe for children to be around, or how long before it is safe for them?
    A
    No, we would NOT recommend using Termidor SC when children are around. Once the product is dry, it is safe for your children to return to the area. Termidor SC normally dries within a matter of hours depending on the temperatures outdoors.

  • Asked by John
    01/12/2016
    Q
    How often do you have to spray Termidor outside your house to keep termites out?
    A

    Termidor SC is applied as a spray once every six weeks topically up against the foundation for insects that crawl on top of the soil, such as ants. If you are trying to treat for subterranean termites, you will want to dig a trench up against the structure, and if there is concrete up against the foundation you will need to drill to apply the product. Please take a few moments to review our article on How to Get Rid of Subterranean Termites for specific application instructions.

  • Asked by Chuck from Billings Mo
    07/11/2015
    Q
    Can I mix/spray Termidor SC in the same equipment that I use for Talstar P?
    A

    If the equipment has been tripled rinsed and the nozzle and wand have been rinsed out, you can use them in the same sprayer just not at the same time. Termidor SC is a non-repellent insecticide. This means the insects cannot tell that it is there and they will readily walk over treated areas. Termidor SC also has a delayed reaction time and a transfer effect which allows them time to get back to the colony and spread it around before they succumb to the effects of the product. Talstar P on the other hand is synthetic pyrethroid which many sensitive insects such as ants can detect. Insects may avoid the areas treated with Talstar and those that do cross over treated areas are the only ones that will be killed by the product. Talstar P does not have a transfer effect so it will not be transferred back to the colony. While the Termidor SC will not actually be deactivated by Talstar P, it will be much less effective if it is over-sprayed with Talstar P. You can spray Talstar P on your trees, bushes and lawn for mosquito control as long as you are not actually overlapping the areas where Termidor SC was applied.

    Q
    How do I use Termidor SC for a pier and beam home foundation?
    A

    To apply Termidor SC to a home with a pier and beam foundation, you will need to trench around each pier.  You will need to trench around any point where a support for the home touches the home.  If the piers are hollow blocks you also have to drill a hole in each pier to treat the inside space where termites could potentially travel up without hitting the treated soil around the pier.

    Q
    Can I use Termidor SC for ants around a honey bee hive?
    I would like to spray it on the ground around hive and also my home. Will it kill my bees? Is there anything better / safer to use?
    A
    We would not recommend using Termidor SC around a honey bee hive. Instead, we would recommend using Mavrik Perimeter. Mavrik Perimeter is for outdoor use and is known for its immediate control of a variety of insects including mosquitoes, ants, spiders, ticks, springtails, cockroaches and fire ants. With Mavrik Perimeter there is no lingering odor or visible residue and when dry it is non toxic and non repellent to honey bees.

  • Asked by Fahim
    06/21/2011
    Q
    Is the application procedure of Termidor SC the same for Carpenter Ants as termites?
    When reading the instructions for Termidor SC, it says to make a trench for termites. Is the same procedures applies for dealing with carpenter ants? I read that you apply it on the ground and 1 to 2 feet above the ground. Is this correct? When doing a perimeter spray how does one deal with a wooden deck and a concrete driveway because you can not trench them?
    A
    If you are treating for Carpenter Ants, you will spray around the perimeter of the house as you described, 1-2 ft up the foundation and 1-2 ft out onto the ground, around door frames, window frames, places where cables, pipes or wires go through the wall and any other crack or crevice where the ants can gain entry into your home. If you are treating for termites, you will need to make a 6 inch x 6 inch trench right up against the foundation and pour in 4 gallons of diluted Termidor SC for every 10 ft of trench. We recommend that you read our article How To Do a Termite Treatment to learn how to deal with porches, decks and driveways when performing a termite treatment

    Q
    Can I use Termidor to treat bathtub drain trap if termites were present?
    A
    Yes, you can.  Termidor can be used indoors but only as a spot treatment where you have termites in a wall void or a plumbing access.  Typically on a bath trap you would pour 1 gallon of solution over the trap into the soil.

    Q
    Does Termidor work at home on scorpions?
    If sprayed on outside of home as a residual will it keep scorpions out?
    A
    Termidor is not labeled to treat scorpions and will not kill them quickly at all.  Therefore it will not prevent scorpions from getting in your home.  We recommend using Equil Lambda that is in our Scorpion Control Kit.  It has a much quicker kill than Termidor and will last longer outdoors than Termidor will.
