    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.

    Q
    Termites are eating the hard wood trees and palm trees in my yard. Can I treat the soil around the trees with out harming them?
    A
    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 SC 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
    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

    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

    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.

    Q
    Do you treat a pier and beam house any differently?
    My house is pier and beam. Hence there is dirt under the entire house. (ie we have back steps running along 80% of the back of the house... do I trench at the base of the steps or get under the house and luxuriate as I trench in a 2 foot crawl space?)
    A
    To treat pier and beam you would trench around the piers and beams and apply termidor. You would also trench in the crawl space. Please see our article on barrier treatments.

    Q
    What treatment is recommended for Crazy Raspberry Ants?
    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.

    Q
    I have a horrible thief ant problem. What will kill them? HELP
    I have tried Maxforce FC bait stations, Combat Source Kill bait stations, and Terro, Borax, and Boric Acid mixed with peanut butter (to attract them). I'm tried of wasting money and time on products that don't work. What would be your top suggestion for thief ants? They do (and only ever) prefer proteins. (Sorry if this is a repeat submission, there was an error and I was unsure if the last question was submitted).
    A
    If the ants are not taking the Maxforce bait we would recommend to use advance 375A as it is a protien based bait. You could also instead use Termidor SC. Termidor is a non repellent and thus when the foraging ants come in contact with it they will transfer the active ingredient back to the colony and it will cause a domino killing effect. Termidor is mixed at a rate of .80 fl oz. to one gallon of water in a pump sprayer and sprayed around the outside foundation of the home. For example, you would spray 1 foot up the foundation of your home, and 1 foot out onto the ground.  The treatment will last about 4-6  months, and will then need to be reapplied. Th

  • Asked by John from Potwin, Ks
    10/01/2015
    Q
    Why do you have to put Termidor SC in a trench?
    A

    Termidor SC should be applied in a trench and drilled holes to provide a barrier around the structure where the termites can gain access. They travel beneath the soil so this application is necessary for eradication and protection.
