Yes if the soil was disturbed, removed, or displaced after Termidor SC it could change effectiveness of barrier.
For Termidor SC to work on Drywood termites, you have to drill directly into the piece of wood the termites are in and inject Termidor into the wood. Termidor does not penetrate into wood, so you have to inject it into the center. It has to touch the termites to work, but the benefit is that it only has to contact a few termites, and then they can pass it on to the rest of the colony.
For Drywood termite treatments on wood, we recommend applying a product called Bora-Care. This product is applied to raw wood and penetrates further than any other product.
Termidor SC is an excellent professional termite control product for killing termites and protecting your home from future infestations. Termidor will protect your home and eliminate almost any termite problem in less than 90 days. In addition, when used as an in-ground barrier treatment, Termidor will protect your home or business for over 10 years. Termidor is completely undetectable by termites and once termites touch it they contact, ingest and spread the termiticide until it eliminates the entire colony. Termidor controls all types of termites including subterranean, formosan, and drywood termites.
Termidor SC should be used within 24 hours of mixing and should not be stored.
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.
Yes, you should drill a hole 2" from the foundation wall (1/2" in diameter/18" deep) every 10-12" apart. You will be dispursing the same amount of finished soultion in the drilled holes as you will the trench around the structure. Termidor SC will be mixed at 3.2 oz per 4 gallons of water per 10 lineal feet (in trench or drilled holes). Please let us know if you need anything else.
Yes, you can drill into the slab and apply product.When performing a termite treatment and treating concrete slabs, the holes should be drilled about 2-3 inches away from the house, and 10 inches apart. Typically a 1/2 inch drill bit is used. You can fill the holes using a funnel or a one gallon hand pump sprayer with the nozzle turned so the sprayer shoots out a pinstream. You are supposed to apply 4 gallons per 10 feet in the drill holes as well as the trench. This is very hard to do. Usually you would just fill the holes and then come back 30 minutes later after the soil beneath the slab has soaked up the product and fill the holes up again. Do this 3 times and then patch the holes or use our Trebor Plugs.
We would also recommend doing a trench around the entire structure. You will dig a 6 by 6 inch trench and pour 4 gallons of solution per 10 lineal feet. This can be done with Termidor SC as well.
There would be no valid reason to mix Talstar P and Termidor SC together. This would nullify the non repellent factor of the Termidor SC. Termidor can only be used 1-2 feet up and out around the home and around entry points for pests and would be the better product for ants, but is not labeled for stink bugs. If you are looking for a product that you can use more freely around your home for ant control as well as other insects, then the Talstar P would be the better option to stick with.
