    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.

    Q
    Termidor SC was mistakenly applied inside empty kitchen cabinets. What can be done to make the cabinets safe?
    A

    Termidor SC is not labeled to be used inside except for spot treating active infestations.  If applied as a crack and crevice spray inside cabinets it would be recommended to thoroughly clean the area with warm soap and water or an all-purpose surface cleaner.

    Q
    We are cleaning crawlspace for mold, then sealing. Can Termidor still be used?
    Mold was found in our crawl space. The cleaning company is planing on sealing the space after killing the mold. Will our termidor applications still be able to be done?
    A

    If your crawlspace is sealed then no you would not be able to dig a trench and apply Termidor inside the crawlspace, you would only apply it around the outside perimeter of your home.

    Q
    How effective is Termidor SC against termites? Is it easy to apply Termidor SC?
    A
    Termidor SC is very effective in treating termites in the soil and lasts longer than any other liquid concentrate labeled for termites. Treating with Termidor SC can be easy but requires a lot of labor when trenching and drilling. Please read the following article by clicking on the link on How to Perform Your Own Termite Treatment for step by step instructions.

    Q
    Termidor/Tarus concentration and depth penetration....
    I have a two spots where the termites look like they are entering. I will use either Termidor or Tarus, but there are different concentrations. Is 0.06% ok or better to user higher in those spots. Additionally 4 gal per 10 feet is standard. Should I be decreasing the feet to get product deeper into ground in trouble areas.... If so how much? Lastly ok to use product day after rain
    A
    Both Termidor and Taurus would be applied at .8 oz per gallon of water.  The 6 inch deep trench is deep enough and there is generally no need to go lower than that.  Decreasing the footage the 4 gallons covers does not make the product penetrate deeper as it is going to bind to the soil it is applied to.  It is ok to use the product a day after rain but you want to make sure the soil is not too saturated with water from the rain.

  • Asked by Emily from Central Texas
    06/20/2014
    Q
    When applying Termidor SC for ant control is it a good idea to dampen the soil prior to treatment?
    or water it in after treatment?
    A
    According to the label, you should not apply Termidor SC when precipitation is occuring or treat soil that is water-saturated or frozen. It is best to wait until you have a few days of no rain in the forecast so there is at least 24 - 36 hours time after you treat before it rains.  Termidor SC is made to bond to the soil but it needs time to "set" and bond to hold up against a rain event.

    Q
    What temperatures for outside trench application for termites
    A
    When it comes to termites, you should never wait as there is never a best time.  Especially if you are worried about activity.  Having said that the dryer the soil the better for Termidor SC when you are using it as a prevention in a trench around the perimeter of the home.  Termidor SC is made to bond to the soil, and the less moisture in the ground, the easier it is for it to take hold and provide long lasting protection.  The only temperature that effects Termidor SC is when it is below freezing.  We recommend reading our 'How to Perform A Termite Treatment'article. It offers information on application, tools needed, product recommendations and other instructions.

    Q
    What is the best way to treat a Fire Ant mound with Termidor SC?
    I already treat around the perimeter of my house. But there are several mounds out in the yard. I have sprayed some termidor SC on them & after several days to a week, they have a new, living mound right beside it.
    A

    Termidor SC is only labeled for application right up against a structure and is not labeled to treat fire ant mounds.  We do carry Extinguish Plus Fire for fire ants.

    Q
    Can I use Termidor SC around trees with and without termite infestations?
    A

    Unfortunately, Termidor SC is not labeled to be used in a tree application. Only up against a structure. If you need a product that can be used around trees we would recommend using a product like Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate which can be used in this type of application.

  • Asked by Steve from Brattleboro Vt
    06/29/2015
    Q
    Would we use Termidor SC to treat an old nesting sight and very minimal termite damage?
    A
    We recommend that you apply a termiticide in a trench and drilled holes around the perimeter of your home to provide a barrier that will last up to 10 years in the soil. It will eradicate the termites in as little as 90 days depending on the size of the colony or colonies. If you plan to treat the home yourself, we recommend that you get the meausrements (lineal footage) and read the How to Perform a Termite Treatment Article.

    Q
    Can you recommend a sprayer and nozzle to inject Termidor SC into wall voids?
    I have Subterranean termites along a wall that I want to treat locally; plan is to drill holes into wall directly above the baseboard and injecting Termidor SC into wall void. Can you recommend a Sprayer and nozzle suited to spray thru holes into wall voids?
    A

    Just about any 1 gallon pump sprayer will do. We prefer the Chapin  Premier 1 Gallon Pump Sprayer 21210XP because of the brass construction in the shutoff valve, wand, and nozzle. The nozzle is adjustable and using the pin stream spray would allow you to spray through a hole in the wall.  All of the parts are replaceable when they wear out and when cared for properly will last for many years.   You may want to look over our How To Do A Termite Treatment article to learn how you can protect the rest of your home against termites in the future.
