    Q
    How rain fast is Termidor?
    I applied Termidor for a major ant problem around the house at 8:30 pm. The next day around noon we had a torrential downpour. Do I need to reapply? How quickly should it work?
    A
    Termidor SC will become rain fast after it has dried. This can take up to 6 hours. As long as the treated area was dry, you should be safe.

    Q
    Is Termidor SC or CyKick CS better for black ants and dry wood termites?
    Which product has less of an odor?
    A

    Cy-Kick CS is a great product, but Termidor SC is the preferred product for your situation. Termidor SC is a non-repellent insecticide that also has a transfer effect, this means that the ants will not know that Termidor SC has been applied, and therefore cannot avoid the treated area and as they come into contact with other ants they will spread the insecticide and wipe out the colony. Termidor SC can also be used for drywood termites. It is important to remember that you must apply the product into the spaces that these termites will actually come into contact with it. That could mean that you would need to drill into the wood or possibly even foam the product into the space.We have never had a complaint about the smell of Termidor SC and the MSDS says that it is odorless.

    Q
    Advantage = fipronil +imadocloprid. Is this true?
    I read in our local paper that Advantage flea products are made with fipronil and imadocloprid. The author bought a gallon of each from you and mixed it according to instructions supplied with the product. If this is all true I am very interested in doing the same thing for my pets. I have two small dogs and four cats.
    A
    We apologize but none of the products we carry with those active ingredients are labeled to be used to make your own flea products.  We have actually been in touch with that website to have our information removed from their site as it is very misleading.  Products must be used following the instructions on the product labels. We do carry several products for use on pets for fleas though and they can be found here.

    Q
    If there is no difference between Termidor SC and Taurus SC, why would a state ban one product and not the other?
    A

    Termidor Sc and Taurus SC are essentially the same product they are just made by different manufacturers. They both carry almost the exact same label and there is not any advantage to using one product over the other. There are many reasons that include: state restrictions, licensing etc that are involved with allowing products to certain states.

    Q
    We applied Termidor SC in a trench around our house last summer. This spring I have a lot of termites in the garden.
    I have termites in my vegetable garden in my back yard. It is not near the foundation. Does this mean the treatment did not work? Do we need to retreat?
    A

    The trenching application of Termidor SC is for protecting your home from termites.  If you’re no longer finding evidence of termites invading your home, then the Termidor was successful.  Termites travel in all directions under the surface of the soil.  There can be multiple colonies in your yard alone.  There is no termiticide that can be used in your garden.  You can use Termite Bait Stations around your garden perimeter to help treat termites in that area.

    Q
    Can you put Termidor SC in water based latex paint and then apply the paint to wood to deter termites?
    A

    Termidor SC cannot be mixed with paint to deter termites.  It would be best applied in trench around the home for termite prevention.  We have a step by step guide that will walk you through how to do your own termite trenching treatment. You can see the guide by clicking on the link here.  For treating wood before you paint you would use something like Timbor or Boracare which penetrate into the wood and last for the life of the wood.  Once the surface is dry after application you can then paint.

    Q
    DoesTermidor SC contaminate the groundwater to any extent after normal application to the foundations .
    I have a borehole 40m deep about 5m from the application site
    A

    Termidor SC is not known to leech through the soil. You will need to follow the Termidor SC product label which has specific instructions for treating near a well to avoid any contamination issues:

    TREATMENT AROUND WELLS OR CISTERNS: Do not contaminate wells or cisterns.
    Structures With Wells/Cisterns Inside Foundations: Structures that contain wells or cisterns within the foundation of a structure can only be treated using the following techniques:
    1. Do not apply within 5 feet of any well or cistern by rodding and/or trenching or by the backfill method. Treat soil between 5 and 10 feet from the well or cistern by the backfill method only. Treatment of soil adjacent to water pipes within 3 feet of grade should only be done by the backfill method.
    a) Trench and remove soil to be treated onto heavy plastic sheeting or similar material or into a wheelbarrow.
    b) Treat the soil at the rate of 4 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet per foot of depth of the trench, or 1 gallon per 1.0 cubic feet of soil. Mix thoroughly into the soil taking care to contain the liquid and prevent runoff or spillage.
    c) After the treated soil has absorbed the solution, replace the soil into the trench.
    Structures With Adjacent Wells/Cisterns and/or Other Water Bodies: Applicators must inspect all structures with nearby water sources such as wells, cisterns, surface ponds, streams, and other bodies of water and evaluate, at a minimum, the treatment recommendations listed below prior to making an application.


    1. Prior to treatment, if feasible, expose the water pipes) coming from the well to the structure, if the pipes) enter the structure within 3 feet of grade.
    2. Prior to treatment applicators are advised to take precautions to limit the risk of applying the termiticide into subsurface drains that could empty into any bodies of water. These precautions include evaluating whether application of the termiticide to the top of the footer may result in contamination of the subsurface drain. Factors such as depth to the drain system and soil type and degree of compaction should be taken into account in determining the depth of treatment.
    3. When appropriate (i.e., on the water side of the structure), the treated backfill technique (described above) can also be used to minimize off-site movement of termiticide.

    Q
    I get my drinking water from my well. I own a manufactured home and is Termidor SC safe to use?
    A
    Do not apply Termidor SC within 5 feet of a well or cistern. Treatment within 5 to 10 feet of a well or cistern must be done by backfill method only (removing the dirt to be treated and replacing it after it has been treated elsewhere or in a container such as a wheelbarrow).

    Q
    I live in south TX, will Termidor SC work for the termites down here?
    Also, today I saw a 5 inch line of holes in one of my outer walls thru the outside on the side of my house. I had a couple of old boards and moved them and saw they had a lot of termites. I killed most of them by stepping on them and took the boards to my truck to get thrown away, How can I battle the ones inside my walls?
    A

    Termidor SC is labeled for all types of termites.  How you use it is determined by the species of termites you are dealing with.  If you have termites in your home, we recommend doing the liquid treatment as outlined in the "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article and then inside the home where you know you have the termites you will treat them directly by injecting the Termidor into the wall or cutting a hole into the wall and spraying on the wood or however you can get the product to the termites. It only needs to touch a few termites to work.

    Q
    Does Termidor SC work on caterpillars?

    Q
    Is Termidor SC useful against smoky brown (German) roaches?
    A

    We would not suggest that Termidor SC be the product of choice for eradicating German Roaches as it can only be applied to the exterior of the structure only. We do have a Roach Control Rotation A Kit that will be great to treat your home with. Please take a few moments to read our article on How to Get Rid of German Roaches. You will find some really great tips on applying the products for the best control. Please let us know if you need anything else.

    Q
    What is the reason that Termidor cant be used inside as a spot spray for carpenter ants?
    A
    The label of a product is the law, and the manufacturer and the EPA decided on a label that does not permit Termidor to be used indoors for ants or other insect control, only termite control.  We are not sure exactly why, but the label is the law so we cannot recommend using a product against what the label says.  We do have an excellent product to place inside the home for carpenter ants called Maxforce Carpenter ant bait gel.  It is in our carpenter ant kit and has a very high success rate.

    Q
    Is Termidor SC safe to spray outdoor?
    To spray outdoor of home. What if there's plants bushes around house, can I spray along the perimeter of that?....
    A
    Termidor SC should have no effect on plants that are inadvertently sprayed with the product. It is important to read and follow the Termidor SC product label which states that you can only treat one foot up from and one foot out from where the ground meets the structure. The label also recommends that you remove or prune away plants, shrubs or tree branches that touch the structure. Vegetation that comes into contact with the structure may offer a route of entry for the ants allowing them to enter the structure without ever having come into contact with the treated area.

    Q
    What pump or tool would you recommend to use for interior drywall injection for spot treatment of Termidor SC?
    I'm looking for a pump with an injection needle on a budget.
    A

    Professionals would use a sprayer with a crack and crevice straw or termite injection tip to apply Termidor SC into drywall areas, such as that of the B&G AccuSpray with Termite Injection Tip. Keep in mind that you will only apply Termidor in wall voids where there are active termites. An easier way to spot treat would be with a ready-to-use product that comes with a tube and injection tip such as Termidor Foam. You would drill into the infested wood and apply the product directly into the termite gallery. Please see our Termite Treatment Article for more information.

    Q
    Is spraying the exterior wall from the crawl space an effective method of application?
    I have subterranean termites noticed when they began to build mud tunnels inside my house at grout indentations on the floor. I have a brick patio abutting the house which may be the source of termites. I don't want to disturb the bricks and flower gardens so I thought I can spray Bora Care from the crawl space. Is this an effective way to apply Boracare and eliminate these termites? Or, do I need to spray/trench from the outside? How long will it take to notice any results?
    A

    To treat subterranean termites we always recommend to trench where you can and also treat the crawlspace. Termidor SC can be used in crawlspaces. There are complete instructions on the Termidor SC product label (page 5) on how to use the product in the crawlspace, so if a bit inadvertently goes into the crawlspace it should not pose a problem.

    Q
    I recently got rid of terminex, what should I use as a perimeter/band treatment?
    They were using something with IMIDACLOPRID, CYFLUTHRIN 0.075%
    A
    By far our most popular liquid Termiticide is Termidor SC with Fipronil active ingredient. For termites, you want to dig a 6inx6in trench all the around the perimeter of the structure. Please see our Termidor Application instructions on the product page.  If you are wanting to use a product for general pest control Talstar is always a great product that covers many different pest and can be applied outdoors and indoors. Let us know if you have any more questions.

    Q
    Do I also need to trench-treat around all of my pressure treated deck posts/steps that are attached to house with Termidor SC also?
    A
    Termidor SC should be applied to the trench directly around the structure and in drilled holes in the concrete that is attached to the structure. You may need to remove some boards if they are close to the home to access the soil directly up against the foundation for the trenching.
