    Q
    What's your opinion on the best approach for termite control, the Bait Systems, Termiticide liquid, or both?
    A
    The most superior treatment hands down for termites is a liquid foundation treatment.  This is because the point of the treatment is to completely surround your home.  You should follow the instructions as outlined in our How To Do A Termite Treatment Article.

    Q
    How often should you spray Termidor SC as a normal pest control?
    I had our house treated for termites last year an was told it is great for normal pest control. I was wondering how often I should spray it around the house for ants, spiders ect. Around the base of the house an on the stucco of the house.
    A

    Termidor SC can be applied twice a year (1 ft up and 1 ft out) up against the structure for a pest control barrier at 0.8 oz per gallon of water. It can be applied four times a year at 0.4 fl oz per gallon of water in the same area.

    Q
    Do I have to drill and treat the wall where the attached garage meets the house?
    House is on slab with attached garage. Also wondering about wood deck directly up against house. Do I treat around deck or have to remove boards up against house so I can treat soil directly against concrete slab?
    A
    The goal is to treat against the foundation around the entire house.  So yes, you should drill the slab in the garage just as if it was a patio slab up against the foundation.  Also, if you are lucky enough to have the boards on your deck running parallel to the house, then you should remove the first 2 or 3 runs so you can trench the ground beneath the deck up against the house.  This does mean a little extra work, but it is the right way to treat your home for termites. Termidor would be a great product to apply.

    Q
    Soaking the foundation
    I need run a series of soaker hoses around my house to adequately soak the foundation asap, however, i did just notice a bit of termite infestation in one area of my house. What is my best course of action here?
    A

    Termidor SC would be used to directly spot treat the active infestation by drilling into the infested wood and spraying into the gallery directly.  You would also want to apply in a trench around the home.  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.

Thanking you in advance, Ralph Boswell.

  • Asked by Gary from Oregon
    05/08/2017
    Q
    If I use Termidor as an ant barrier spray and later use weed/moss killer over it, will the Termidor still be effective?
    A

    You will want to give adequate time for the herbicide to dry and absorb into the plants you are treating with it before using another product over top. This will help to make sure there are no compatibility issues between the two products as well as to ensure the insecticide application does not wash away any of the herbicide you applied. Termidor SC should be applied only to the ground 1 foot out from the foundation and 1 foot up onto the structure.

    Q
    Applying along garden bed
    I have a few rose bushes along one side of the house (2 feet away and I don't think the roots will be a problem i.e alow for a breach) I want to trench right up against the house however will constant watering over time make the solution ineffective (dilute)? Thank you
    A
    If you do a trench around the foundation of the home with the Termidor, you would need to let it dry for at least 24-48 hours after applying before any form of rain or irrigation. Once the Termidor has dried completely it will be there for at least 10-15 years protecting the home and watering of your plants next to the home will not dilute it or make it inneffective.

  • Asked by Laura from Shamrock, Tx

    Q
    Spraying the whole house for bed bugs, can you spray over 2-3 days? Or one day tx? Small infestation...
    Found bed bug nest in one bdrm a month ago. Sprayed with Pyrethin, clean and vacuum everyday, have found less than 24 since. Ordered Temprid SC, Fenvastar, Phantom, SteriFab, and Gentrol IGR from you. Almost have everything in bags, but have no room to put bags out of the way, where do you put the clothes and linens and everything you move to spray? I have thrown away things, washed and dried everything I have. Still have bags of clean clothes in back yard basking in sun, afraid to bring them in and no where to put if I did. Im going crazy. Washing, packing, cleaning, staying up all night to find bugs and have only found 2 in 2 weeks and that was in a bathroom. I have tore apart the 3 bdrms at least 2x each. (the orginal bdrm is now isolated, by tape, dust, caulk, etc). Outside of that room I have found one bug on me...(after cleaning), 4 in the adjoining bathroom, and one in living room, after disposing of mattress, and none in the adjoining bdrms. We have used CO2 traps and cardboard sticky traps and nothing outside of that room. We are a little over 4 weeks into this process. Can I spray one room at a time? or 2 rooms, one night and then the rest the next? Or must I do the whole house at once? I want the bugs gone but feel by myself I cannot do it all in one night. I need help in Texas. Will start spraying tonight.
    A
    It really sounds like you have a good hold on this Bed bug treatment. You really want to try and get the whole treatment finished in one day. This will lessen the risk of Beds Bugs getting through any untreated areas. We also sell Nuvan Pro Strips which work wonders on items that are sealed up in bins or bags. Keep up the good work!

    Q
    Can we pour Termidor SC in the hole when the post is removed?
    We have active termites in a post on our concrete porch.
    A
    Yes, you may drench the soil where the termite damaged post has been removed with Termidor SC. However, this will only protect that localized area and would not help protect the rest of your home from termite damage. We would recommend treating the entire perimeter of your home with Termidor SC. Please read over our Termite Treatment Guide for more information regarding protecting your home long term from destructive termites.

    Q
    How do you put Termidor SC or Taurus SC under a porch?
    We are unable to get under our porch to dig a trench to pour the solution in. What is the best way to apply under the porch?
    A

    If the porch is wood, you can remove the wood temporarily so that you can treat the soil with Termidor SC or Taurus SC. If the porch is concrete, you will need to drill through the concrete to apply the solution.

    Q
    Can Termidor can be used to treat pavement ants in brick pavers and also brick paved driveways?
    I Did these treatments a few years back and now the boss Is questioning If we can do these or not it will really help our revenue as we have a serious problem with pavement ants And his treatment seems to work better than anything we’ve ever used
    A

    Termidor SC can be used for ant treatment if it is within 1 foot of a structure. Per the product label, you cannot use Termidor SC farther out in yards or around ornamentals outside of that range. A better product to use around pavers would be a dual-active product such as Temprid FX Insecticide. You can treat around the perimeter of the homes, plus treat where there are ant trails around the pavers. The product label also allows you to apply Temprid FX much more frequently than Termidor (only 2-4 times per year, depending on the rate used).

    Q
    Is Termidor SC harmful to bees or birds?
    A

    Once Termidor SC has dried, it should not be harmful to people, pets or wildlife.  It can be toxic for bees if they come in contact with treated areas once it has dried.  To lessen this risk, apply in the morning or evening when bees are least active.  Please refer to the product label for complete application instructions.

    Q
    I have hear that Termidor warranties their product against termite damage, is this true?
    If Termidor does warranty their product against termite damage, does it only apply if installed by a professional?
    A
    This would normally only apply if a professional has treated your home, as the manufacturer can not be liable for any damage when they are not there to make sure you do the treatment properly. If you would like further information you can always contact the manufacturer BASF at 1-800-526-1072.

    Q
    I am putting a new kitchen plywood subfloor can I use Termidor for preventative termite treatment
    A

    Termidor is not a wood treatment product. Timbor is a great product, but it does not penetrate or last as long as another product made by the same company called Bora-Care.  Bora-Care is the best wood treatment product available because it penetrates all the way through a piece of wood where Timbor will only penetrate the outer coating.  If you have older wood then you should always use Bora-CareBora-Care will also stay in the wood forever, preventing any new infestations for years to come.

    Q
    I have seen a couple of Termite swarmers. Is it time to panic and use Termidor SC?
    Killed a couple of "swarmers" in a window sill yesterday, first I've seen of them. Trying not to panic. Haven't done a thorough investigation, but quick glance doesn't turn up any mud tubes, etc. Should I dive into using Termidor SC to treat the perimeter of the house?
    A

    There is no need to panic. We would recommend using Termidor which is one of the best termiticides on the market and is the treatment of choice with professional companies.  For the activity you have inside, you would drill a hole or tear out a piece of sheetrock and treat directly into the wall void with some Termidor in a one gallon sprayer.  For the outside treatment, you would apply Termidor around the perimeter of the structure according to the guidelines in our "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article. This is the best way to protect your home.

  • Asked by Josh from Ohio
    04/24/2013
    Q
    Is Termidor affected by herbicides/weed killers that I would use in the flower bed next to my house?
    I need to kill the weeds in my flower beds but I'm afraid to apply any killer in liquid or granule form because I don't know if it will negatively affect my Termidor treatment I had done a year ago.
    A
    We don't think the herbicides will be a problem with the Termidor. The problem will be if plants are growing through that barrier treatment and disturbing the barrier that was put into place.
