    Q
    I live on a lake house, is Termidor good for spiders and webs? If not what is?
    I live in new jersey
    A
    Termidor should not be used near a body of water.  If you are located very close to the lake, or are treating spiders in a boat house, you have to be very careful because insecticides are very detrimental to aquatic life.  If you live very close to the water then you should use Eco Exempt IC3.  It is an all natural product and will kill all insects.  Best of all it is not harmful to aquatic life.

    Q
    Can Termidor SC be used to control hive beetles?
    Can this product be used to kill and control the Hive Beetle larvae that grow in the ground around Beehives? If so would it be a different application rate than for termites or ants?
    A

    Termidor SC is only labeled to be used up against a structure and not for any type of lawn application.  We would recommend a product like Cyzmic CSCyzmic CS is a water-based insecticide concentrate that provides excellent control of dozens of insect pests in a powerful micro-encapsulated formulation with long-lasting control and little to no odor.

  • Asked by Theresa from Springfield Oregon
    06/03/2014
    Q
    Why is Termidor labeled outdoor use only?
    Label says outdoor use only but you are targeting Ants, Cockroaches.
    A
    The Termidor SC is legally only allow to be used outdoors per the manufacturer and the EPA for the insects listed on its label. It can be used around the outside foundation of the home for ants, spiders and other pests listed on the label and will have a far reach as it transfers through the colony on any that cross that barrier. However it is not safe to be used or label to be used on baseboards inside the home. If you wanted a non-repellant transfer product like the Termidor that is safe for indoor use and will control the ants and cockroaches as well, you would want to use Phantom Termiticide/Insecticide.

    Q
    Using Termidor as a perimeter pest control treatment against ants
    What is the proper application rate when using Termidor as a perimeter pest control treatment against ants—carpenter ants in particular. The label does not seem to cover this use. (But then my wife says I could stare right at something and not see it so...)
    A
    The usage instructions for ant control and general pest control using Termidor SC is all the way at the very end of the product label and can be hard to find. You will need to use 0.80 fl oz (fill to the red measuring line on the bottle) per gallon of water for ant/general pest control outdoors around the perimeter of your home.

    Q
    Which is more effective for Subterranean termites? Termidor SC, or Dominion 2L ?
    A
    Termidor SC and Dominion 2L are both labeled for subterranean termites and will effectively kill them. The main difference between the two is the active ingredient and the amount of time it stays in the soil. Termidor SC will last about 10 years in the soil, while Dominion 2L will last about 5 years.

  • Asked by Joyce from Waynesboro
    05/26/2018
    Q
    Do I need to treat my crawl space if I am doing a trench application with Termidor SC?
    I have termites in a very small crawl space where a room was added on. How would I treat this area if I am not able to get in the space?
    A

    We actually recommend, if possible, to apply Termidor in a trench inside the crawl space. You will use the same method as you do around the entire structure.  If you are not able to do so it might be best to contact a professional company for options.

    Q
    We had Termodor treatment done under our house foundation and aroind its perimeter...
    A few days after Termidor treatment around the perimeter and under the foundation, we had a trench 5 feet deep dug up along the foundation walls to install a french drain. Does that mean that we dug out the Termidor and it will not be effective?
    A

    Yes if the soil was disturbed, removed, or displaced after Termidor SC it could change effectiveness of barrier.

    Q
    Does this product work on drywood termites?
    A

     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.

    Q
    Can a dirt filled porch with a finished floor be treated horizontally through the brick with Termidor SC?
    I have a 12x12 sun room atop a dirt filled porch connected to the house. It's approximately 32" above grade with brick exterior. I do not want to drill vertically through the finished floor.
    A

    Yes, you could drill through the sides of the porch and treat underneath the top cover from the sides. You would also want to trench and treat around the exterior of the porch or sunroom as well in addition to drilling it from the sides. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    How can I treat my nectarine tree for termites?
    I have fruit trees in brick and cinder block planter in my backyard on the side of the house. The fruit trees trunks are spaced about five feet apart. My nectarine tree may have been damaged/decayed from other pests, but now has been infested by termites (I was told either drywood or subterranean or both). Is there a method to treat the tree without contaminating the soil or the other fruit trees with dangerous chemicals? Can I just chop down the whole tree and remove it, stump, roots, and all? Also, the tree is about 10 feet away from my house so if it is subterranean and I remove the tree, will they seek my house? If I have to use chemicals, which would you suggest and what methods should I undertake?
    A
    Termites do not attack live, healthy trees. If the tree has been damaged by termites it would be advisable to remove the tree and perform a liquid termite soil treatment with Termidor SC to ensure subterranean termites to not find a food source inside of your home. Please take a few minutes to read our article How to Perform a Termite Treatment which will explain how to do the treatment in laymens terms and also explain any needed equipment. Most folks find that they only need a 5 gallon bucket and perhaps a drill in some situations. You should follow the Termidor product label and you should mix Termidor with water as specified. No special equipment is needed to diltute Termidor because it is a water based product and readily mixes with water.

    Q
    Is trenching best down with wet or dry soil, hot cold weather, when bugs are present or not?
    I live in So Fla where there is sandy soil
    A
    Termite trenching is best done when the soil is a bit moist and when the temperatures are below 85 degrees. Having bugs present or not will have no effect on the treatment.

    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.

    MY DOG JUMPS ON TREESS AND POST TRYING TO CHASE SQUIRRELS AND LIZARDS. i HAVE A REAL BAD INFESTATION OF ANTS ON PRPOERT AND THERE EATING MY TEES AND FENCE POSTS
    A
    Termidor SC can only be applied around the foundation of your home or other building structure for ant control. You cannot use the product out around the trees or fences because it is not labeled for this type of application. We recommend using ant bait graules in the places where you cannot use the Termidor SC. You can see our ant bait granules here: Ant Bait Granules

  • Asked by Brian from Knoxville
    05/07/2017
    Q
    Does Termidor SC affect plants around house?
    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.
