    Q
    Is there a test kit for Termidor solutions?
    I had a sample out of the tank and was wondering after a year can I get a sample of the soil and test for Termidor or rather Fipronil to see if any amount is still active?

    There is not a soil sample test kit for homeowners use that we know of.  However, most states department of agriculture's have a way to test soil for termiticides.

    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.

    Q
    How do I treat the house on a full basement for subterranean termites?
    Read how to do outside perimeter. Do we need to drill basement floor and treat same way as outside concrete? (Established infestation.)
    A

    Yes, you can apply Termidor to drilled holes in your basement. You would drill along the inside perimeter 12 in apart. Be sure to apply 4 gallons mixed solution per 10 linear feet. The only permissible ways Termidor can be used indoors is when it is applied to drilled holes or wall voids.

    Q
    I was hoping to get some facts on pesticides being used at my home & the safety for small children and fetuses.
    I recently read an article suggesting a link between pesticides and autism. The evidence was weak, but I was hoping to get some facts on pesticides being used at my home and the safety for small children and fetuses. The pesticides used are Delta Dust, Cy-Kick CS, Mother Earth Granular scatter bait, and Termidor SC. We are never present during application. Are these safe for home use around children/pregnant women?
    A

    We understand your concerns and are happy to address them. Delta Dust is placed inside the wall voids so this is inaccessible to children and adults as well. Cy-Kick CS is safe once it is dry. Children should be kept out of the area that MotherEarth Granular Scatter Bait  is placed until the application is complete. Termidor SC should only be used outdoors unless there is an active termite infestation indoors and you are applying it directly to the infested area. This is another product that children should be kept out of the area while it is being applied.

    These products are safe to use around your home if they are being used correctly. We recommend always following the labels on products and taking the necessary precautions.

    Q
    Number of trenches per side?
    Directions say "six-inch wide and six-inch deep trench directly against the foundation everywhere the ground comes up to the structure" and fill with Termidor. Just want to make sure, but do I dig more than one trench on one side of house 10 feet apart, or just one trench and add total gallons depending the length of that side?
    A
    You will need to dig one continuous trench and just mark it off in 10 ft sections and apply 4 diluted gallons of Termidor Sc for every 10 foot of trench.

    Q
    When it rains a lot, will it wash Termidor SC off my house?
    A

    Termidor SC is labeled for against structures 1 ft and 1 ft out. It is safe if it had at least 24 hrs after application to dry prior to rain. We do offer products that are great for other areas on the structure for carpenter bees. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Carpenter Bees and our Carpenter Bee Control Kit.

    Q
    I have an all brick home and no active termites. do you recommend doing trenching & drilling?
    Used a pest control co. for last 7 years with monitoring stations and yearly inside inspection. I want to do my own pest contol and uncertain if I need to dig & drill?
    A
    If you are able to continue using the stations in the yard they used you can certainly continue to monitor these for activity. If they used the same type we carry on our site, then we can provide you with the necessary replacement parts as needed and guide you on how to check and treat the stations. If you do not have this ability, the best way to protect your home is to do the trench treatment around the foundation of the home and drill where you need to where any concrete touches the home(ie:driveway, garage, patio, etc.). By using Termidor you are protecting your home from any future infestations for the next 10 years. Please review our article on How To Do A Termite Treatment to see what would be involved in a home owner treatment, and feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

    Q
    Is there any conflict between using Termidor SC and Bora-Care to treat the same area?
    We have a concrete slab den that used to be a porch. We have had several incidents of termite damage over the past 20 years, despite termite treatment and annual inspections. We are now planning to have a professional company treat the foundation and slab with Termidor SC (trench and rod). We also are planning to treat the wood sill plates and plywood subfloor, as well as the top of the concrete slab, with Bora-Care. Our termite company says this should not present a conflict between the products, but we wanted to make sure, since they do not deal with Bora-Care.
    A
    Using Termidor SC and Bora-Care in/around the same structure is done all the time and should pose no conflict. Termidor SC and Bora-Care are superior termite control products and should offer you great results.

    Q
    Can I mix Termidor with a weed killer?
    I am working around several large warehouses and would like to do both at once to save some time.
    A

    Due to the nature of Termidor SC it would not be advisable to mix it with anything else. Adding in other products could decrease the non repellency effect of Termidor SC.
