    Q
    tremoder sc: After trenching will re-planting and watering a treated area compromise the termite treatment.
    need to know soon........thank you
    A
    You should not dig up any area that is part of the Termidor treated barrier or you do indeed risk interrupting your barrier treatment. We recommend never planting within 6 inches of a home (where your trench is located), because this allows pests to hide and increases chances that they will invade your home too.

    Termidor SC is not labeled for use on any bearing fruit trees.  We would not recommend eating any fruit grown on the treated trees for at least 1 year.

    Q
    Applying termidor around long tree perimeter
    i have termite prob on a living tree how far from their tree base do I need to dig trench for treatment? Could product harm tree?
    A
    Termites do not usually infest any living piece of wood or tree as they go after dead and decaying wood matter. Are you sure they are termites or that part of the tree isnt dead? Termidor cannot be used away from the foundation of the home/structure unless you are direct treating a carton nest as defined by the Termidor product label. It is not allowed to be used as a trench treatment or drench on or around a tree out on the property for control of any pest. A better option would be to use a product like Talstar P around the base of the tree if you are concerned there could be termites in that vacinity. Talstar would safe to use on the tree and would eliminate any insects in the soil where you treated and any that pass through the soil as well.

    Q
    What is a linear foot?
    A
    The term linear foot refers to the number of feet in a straight line, generally without regard to the width. If you need to measure for a termite treatment, you will measure straight across the front, each side and back of your home. Add up each measurement and you will have the total linear feet.

  • Asked by Ryan from Maine
    05/17/2013
    Q
    Generally how long till I no longer see carpenter ants?
    I had a pretty bad carpenter ant problem... was seeing dozens of them every day. I applied Termidor about 2 feet up the foundation and 2 feet out onto the dirt soil. It's been a week and I still see them, although I've noticed they're not showing up in such high numbers. Generally, how long should it take until they completely disappear? I've heard some people say 24 hours and others say several weeks.
    A
    When using Termidor SC to treat carpenter ants it may take anywhere between 30 to 90 days to eradicate the colony. Termidor kills by transfer. The foraging ants will come out and make contact with the active ingredient. The kill is delayed long enough for the ant to transfer the active ingredient throughout the colony producing a domino killing effect and ultimately killing the queen.

    Q
    Can I use Termidor SC to treat my brick house wood subfloors and crawl space?
    I believe the termites are traveling in my tree roots because under my house looks like a lot of termite mounds with a lot of damage. Should I spray inside or outside of the house.
    A

    While you can use Termidor SC to treat voids in your subfloor, we would recommend to use Boracare instead because it can be applied to raw wood, be absorbed and last the lifetime of the wood. You can use Termidor SC in your crawl space if there's soil, you can trench around the piers to protect your home.

    Q
    I made a gallon of Termidor SC how long will it keep, or do I have to use all the solution the same day.
    A
    The rule of thumb when using any diluted solution is to make sure to use the diluted solution within 24 hours of mixing. The shelf life of the concentrate is 3 years if kept in a cool dry area.

    Q
    Can Termidor for Termites be applied outside when raining?
    A

    You should not apply Termidor SC if it is going to rain the same day.  It is best to wait until you have a few days of no rain in the forecast. 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
    Used TermiDor around the foundation of my house. Three hours later had massive down pour.
    Should I re-apply the application?
    A
    Termidor becomes rainfast aproximately 6 hours after it  has been applied. Since you had a massive downpour only 3 hours after your treatment, another application would be recomended.

    Q
    How do I treat soil for termites where mole or gopher tunnels exist?
    After drilling 1/2" holes in the concrete pads which butt up to the foundation of my house, I noticed that I had drilled through some mole or gopher tunnels. If I pour Termidor into the 1/2" holes where the tunnels exist, the product will disperse into the tunnels instead of saturating the soil between the tunnels and the concrete. Any suggestions?
    A
    We think this is actually a good thing, because it is better for the Termidor to spread out underneath the slab if possible so you get better coverage.  If you drilled holes every 10 to 12 inches apart and filled them with the Termidor, then there is most likely gaps between where you drilled the holes.  If the holes go into a void area then the product will spread out.  Also, keep in mind that termites come from deep underground so when they decide they are hungry and go up towards the surface, all that matters is that they walk through the Termidor somewhere, no matter where the treated soil is.  So if you pour the product in the hole and it spreads out, in our eyes there is a better chance that the termites will walk through the Termidor then if the product was only every 10 to 12 inches apart.

    Q
    Treating Removed Trench Soil - back fill when wet or dry?
    Your video states to wait until the Termidor has dried in the trench, then treat the back-fill with Termidor as I fill in the trenches. However, others mention I can backfill while there is still Termidor fluid in the trench and mix it in, while wet. Is this method acceptable? I was planning to do a 10 foot section at a time, and then back-fill right after I poured the treatment in while there is still plenty Termidor to mix it with.
    A
    Once the trench is filled with the proper amount of termiticide, cover the trench back with the dirt that was removed. You want the dirt that you place back in the trench to be treated also, so that you have a complete barrier against your house and no untreated soil. If you place the dirt back in the trench while it is still filled with the termiticide, it will mix and be treated. If the ground has already soaked up the termiticide, than you will need to pour extra termiticide on the backfill as you are pushing it back into the trench so it will be treated also.

    Q
    Can Termidor be used inside a upper flat to control silver fish, and centipedes?
    She has no pets, and she has access to the attic if need be, she also has half the basement with no access to the other half. Her half is empty. Should the lower tents be warned if she does use Termidor.
    A
    Termidor Sc is not labeled for any type of indoor use other than applying to wall voids. Our most popular general use product is called Talstar.  It is widely used by pest control companies because it is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer and it can be applied in cracks and crevices indoors where these insects harbor.

    Q
    I mixed 1 gallon of Termidor SC 3 weeks ago in my pump sprayer. Will it still be effective?
    A
    It should still be effective, but you should shake your sprayer very well to agitate the product and make sure it mixes well in case any of the active ingredient has settled at the bottom.  In the future, it is usually recommended that you only mix what you plan on using because the products are not supposed to be left in a sprayer for long periods of time.

  • Asked by Jessica from Garden City Missouri

    Q
    My fruit tree trunks were sprayed with Termidor SC before I knew they were spraying.
    I don't know if the company was aware the trees they sprayed were my apple trees. They treated a couple barns and decks with Termidor SC, then as they were leaving they were spraying our tree trunks up to about 4 feet on the trunk which we hadn't discussed them doing. I was shocked! They've been a good company for us before, but now I'm really upset because I don't want to get poisoned eating our apples. They said it's safer than agricultural spray and the fruit should be edible in at least a month. What do we do?
    A

    Termidor is not labeled for use in or around edibles. Any edibles sprayed with Termidor should be discarded.  Please contact the manufacturer BASF for further instruction 800-526-1072.

    Q
    What can I use to treat an active termite infestation inside my home? Why can Termidor SC not be used inside?
    A

    Termidor SC can be used for small spot treatments indoors if you know exactly where the termite infestation is and can treat it directly. If you are unsure of where the infestation is and would like to treat indoors, Phantom Termiticide would be a good option.
