    Q
    I have drop ceiling in garage. Can I spray Termidor between sheetrock and block wall and would this help?
    A
    Termidor SC is only labeled to be used outside as a termite prevention in a trench.  Inside it would only be used to treat active infestations by drilling directly into the wood they are infesting and spraying into the gallery.

    Q
    If I can see where the termites are entering, why is it necessary to trench with Termidor SC?
    A

    We recommend trenching with Termidor SC because it binds to the soil and creates a continuous barrier. Most members of termite colonies remain hidden and there are often multiple colonies, so if you only treat one area where you visibly see them, there is no way to ensure that all the termites will encounter the amount of Fipronil needed to eliminate a colony. While Termidor does have a transfer effect, the idea is to create a barrier and as the termites travel through the treatment, they will absorb enough of the active chemical used in the treatment and then die.

    Q
    Will Termidor SC kill brown scorpions found in Georgia?
    A
    Termidor SC will most likely kill scorpions. Since it is not labeled to do so, we can not tell you how effective it would for this use. We usually recommend Cyper WP for scorpion control. Cyper WP is also available in our scorpion control kit

    Q
    Is termites emerging from soil directly after Termidor SC treatment normal?
    Hi, I just performed a treatment of Termidor SC around the foundation of my house. While digging the trench along my foundation I discovered a small pocket of active subterranean termites (the nasty little white-ish ones, not winged) in the soil right around 6" down. After pouring in the treatment, spraying down the backfill thoroughly, and backfilling, I came back about 2 hours later to find the termites emerging from the soil and making their way along the foundation towards the bottom of my siding. Is this normal, for them to come up out of the soil after a treatment? I've seen the winged termites come out of the ground but never the subterranean ones.
    A
    It is normal to see the termites emerging after a colony has been disturbed. They go into panic mode and begin to act out of character. As long as they were contacted by the treatment they will be eliminated.

    Q
    Can I drill holes at six inches apart instead of 12 inches and just cut in half the .4 oz dose?
    In my mind it seems like more continuous coverage(saturation)
    A
    We recommend to mix .8 oz Termidor per gallon of water. We cannot advise to cut the mizing ratio in half. This could jeapordize the effectiveness of the products. You can drill every 6in, but we cannot recommend to cut down the mizing ratio.

    Q
    I want to make my own wood bait. What mixture would I use Termidor SC and water? Dry wood first or use wet?
    I want to soak 30 pieces of pine wood 1/2" X 1 1/2" X 6" in Termidor SC and then place them in the ground around my house. Assuming I will use a 5 gallon bucket, what is the highest Termidor SC and water mixture concentration I can use so that the wood is soaked thoroughly with termiticide and still remain a nonrepellant and undetectable to termites? Is it best to place the wood outside and air dry the pieces after soaking or simply place them into the ground immediately after the soaking treatment?
    A
    Termidor SC is not labeled to be used in the manner that you have described and we do not recommend you use it in this manner. Instead we recommend that you read our article How to do a liquid termite barrier treatment so you can understand how the product should be used so that is effective for termite control. If you still want to try to use it to make your own baits you should contact the manufacturer BASF for more information. You can reach BASF by calling 800-526-1072.

    Q
    How can I use Termidor SC when I have a slate patio against the house 10ft by 15ft.
    So you can’t remove slate and side view of said patio connects to concrete steps and the makeup of said patio looks like rock/concrete. I notice subterranean terminated along side surface of patio. Will drill down through top of patio through slate reach the intended termites?
    A

    To treat areas with Termidor SC that have a soil to foundation interruption such as a patio, you would drill holes in the patio using a ½ diameter concrete drill bit that is 18-24 inches long.  The holes will be drilled every 12 inches and filled at a rate of 4 gallons of finished solution every 10 feet, just like you were doing in the trench.

    Q
    Termidor treatment in basement
    I recently found evidence of carpenter ants in one of the bedrooms in my home and I also found a frass pile in the basement near the floor beams. Can I use termidor in that wooden floor beam area to treat any potential nests? And would I be able to use some termidor in that bedroom that I observed carpenter ants activity?
    A
    Termidor can only be used indoors if you are injecting it into a wall void or piece of wood and not applying it out in the open along baseboards or window sills like you would other pest control products.  Termidor is mainly intended for use around the outside perimter when used for ants.  We do sell a carpenter ant kit that is for indoor/outdoor use which is our most popular product for carpenter ants when you do not know where the nest is.   You could either use the carpenter ant kit inside and/or use Termidor as an injection in the area where the frass is hoping you contact the nest directly.

    Q
    Looking on the web, I see 2 different 20oz bottles of Termidor SC. What is the difference?
    A

    Termidor SC comes in a 20 ounce bottle, as well as the generic equivalent of Taurus SC.  Both products contain the same amount of active ingredients and are used the same way.  Both will bond to the soil for up to 10 years when used as a termite trenching solution.

    Q
    Does Termidor bond to mulch too?
    I understand that Termidor bonds to soil, but does it also bond to mulch?
    A

    Termidor SC does not bond to mulch the same way it bonds to the soil.  When applied to the soil per label instructions, it will bond with the soil to remain effective for up to 10 years.

    Q
    Will Termidor SC and Suspend SC kill fleas inside and outside of my home?
    A

    Termidor SC is not labeled for fleas and it is also not labeled for use in a lawn so it is not what we recommend for outdoor flea control. Suspend SC is labeled for fleas and for indoor use, but it is not the best choice for indoor flea control because you can not broadcast spray it over carpeted areas. We recommend you use our Outdoor/Indoor Flea Kit to get rid of fleas in and around your home. Please take a few moments to review our article on How to Get Rid of Fleas for a successful eradication program.

    Q
    What can I use in my yard for crazy ants? I have almost 3 acres and and these ants are everywhere! Please help
    I am purchasing phantom for my house and termidor sc around the house. Could I use the termidor in the yard and if so how many bottles do I need for 3 acres? How many can I purchase at one time? Any info woukd be heloful!
    A
    That is great news that you are using Termidor around the outside perimeter and phantom indoors. Unfornuantly, Termidor cannot be used out in the yard. We recommend using something like Invict Blitz Ant Granules. All turf and landscaping areas of the property can treated with 4-8 oz per 1000 sq ft., or 10-20 lbs. per acre.

    Q
    Is it safe to use Termidor SC around the outside edge of may raised beds to treat carpenter ants?
    The raised bed is empty now but plan to plant it in about 30 days with edible plants. Carpenter ants are leaving piles of sawdust at the soil contact with 6" x 6" juniper beams
    A

    Termidor SC should only be applied outside within 1 foot of a house or other structure that we are trying to protect. You also should not apply Termidor SC near or on edible plants. The supplemental label of this product does allow for treatment of active carpenter ants in landscape timbers: in this case, the Termidor SC finished solution would need to be injected into the wood where the ants are found. A safe option for use around the outside of the raised bed would be to use a bait such as Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Granules.

    Q
    How can I dig a 6x6 trench fast when treating with Termidor SC?
    I dug a trench ith a pick axe about 80 feet out of 210 and it took me 4 hours then there was unexpected rain, so I filled the trench back up. I have a tiller that can dig a 6 inch wide trench. Can I use a tiller? All videos and information online shows only the use of manual tools to dig
    A

    When getting ready to treat with Termidor SC and digging a trench, you can use whatever equipment you have at your disposal as long as you’re able to safely trench the perimeter of your home. Also, when trenching and if it rains, you could use a tarp to cover up the area to protect what’s already been done.

    Q
    Leaking of Termidor into the garage?
    In one of my houses, the garage foundation leaks a little water when we have hard rain. Will the trench method cause the termidor or any other product to leak into the property? I really don't want this stuff in my living space, do I?
    A
    Termidor has low solubility in water. It will bind with the soil and should not leak into your living space.
