    Q
    Can I treat the area under fiberglass shower with Termidor and how long will protection last?
    I had to cut sheet rock wall to get to open area (open to ground) in slab under shower to repair drain leak. Now I want to treat the open area in slab under the shower for long term protection before I repair sheet rock. Treated area will be resealed behind sheet rock, under shower base and is not accessible unless wall is again cut, which I would prefer not to do for a long time. Also, will there be a noticeable odor from area, even thought sheet rock walls will be sealed and area is under fiberglass shower stall?
    A
    You can treat with Termidor under the shower if you are treating the soil. If you are treating the slab or any wood that is under the shower it should be treated with Boracare. Termidor does not have a strong odor so any odor left after the treatment should be gone pretty quickly.

  • Asked by Rod from Lakeland, Fl

    Q
    How do I treat areas where the foundation is covered by concrete?
    A

    We recommend that you trench the areas where there is soil and drill 10-12" apart and inject the solution into those areas. You will disperse the same amount of finished solution in the drilled holes as you would the trench, 4 gallons of solution every 10 lineal feet.

    Q
    What's the best way to apply Termidor SC in drilled holes in concrete?
    my driveway is attached to my house and connected to my stoop, which if I look in my basement is where I've seen mud trails; right underneath my stoop in the double 2x4 sill plate. Ok going to apply termidor sc with a trench on the other areas but my question is after I drill the holes in the slab which I hear is every foot, how do I apply the product? Do I just pour it in? And how much? And also how deep does the drill have to go into the ground?
    A

    Termidor SC can be applied in drilled holes every 10-12 inches by using a funnel or a sprayer set on a pin stream setting.  The hole needs to drilled deep enough to apply 1/2 gallon of finished solution to each hole.

  • Asked by Jeff from Pleasanton

    Q
    I live in CA, Orange Oil is advertised regularly. Is Termidor an orange oil?
    A
    No, Termidor is not Orange Oil. Orange Oil is a completely natural product that some people try to use for control of termites as well as other insects. We are not as familiar with Orange Oil and how well it actually works in comparison with the professional grade products we carry. We can tell you however that Termidor SC is the top professional product on the market for subterranean termite control and is completely safe when used according to the product label for treatments. If you would like to see how Termidor should be used to either treat an active infestation or protect the home from any infestations of termites, you can see our guide How To Perform A Termite Treatment, which gives you step by step instructions as well as a full "How To" video.

    Q
    How long does it take for Termidor to start killing ants that have come in contact with it?
    How long does it take for Termidor to start killing ants that have come in contact with it if you spot treat either inside or outside?
    A

    You will typically start seeing results within a week of applying Termidor SC. Ants do not know they are coming in contact with the treated area so that is how it spreads throughout the colony.

    Q
    I just found a termite colony under my house in my crawl space? I want to use the strongest Termidor solution.
    A

    Termidor SC is a great choice for termite treatments. It lasts 10+ years in the soil if applied as directed. I have included a termite article below for additional information on treating around your structure. If you are going to be treating the wood in the crawlspace, we recommend that you apply Bora-Care if treating for drywood termites.

  • Asked by Samuel from Greenwich, Nj

    Q
    Should I use Termidor SC to treat dirt in the crawl space under my kitchen floor?
    I know that I have termites since they destroyed the joists and flooring in my kitchen, but what do I use to treat the dirt in the crawl space? I'll probably be buying Bora-Care to treat all of the wood that I can see under the crawl space.
    A

    If you have subterranean termites, you should perform a termite trenching treatment outside the structure and in the crawl space in accordance with our Subterranean Termite Treatment Guide with a non-repellent termiticide such as Termidor SC. Just spraying insecticide on the surface of the dirt will not help and is not an approved or appropriate use.

  • Asked by Kay from Gulf Breeze, Florida

    Q
    Is Termidor SC safe to apply in an opened interior wall?
    We had treated and killed a termite infestation in May, and just recently began to repair the termite damage. When we took off the drywall to begin repairs, we found a colony of living termites. Is it safe to apply termidor and cover the open wall with a plastic sheet?
    A
    Termidor SC is safe to apply as a spot treatment in voids. You can apply to an open wall and us a plastic sheet to cover while you are allowing the treatment to dry. You must then seal the open wall back up.

    Q
    Can I spray Termidor SC on exposed wall studs inside a detached garage that is rarely used?
    We are trenching outside and wanted to spray the inside studs. Is this dangerous?
    A

    Termidor SC is only labeled for use on inside wall voids.  So that would not be the best product for your needs in this case.  I would recommend Bora Care for those exposed wall studs.

    Is Termidor SC soil treatment safe for pregnancy?

     Termidor SC, when used as directed, is safe to use with people inside the home and you do not have to evacuate anyone from the premises.  It should be perfectly safe for a pregnant woman since you will be treating outside.

    Q
    Do I need a new sprayer to use Termidor SC?
    I have problem of carpenter ants and bought Termidor SC from local DIY pest store and the guy at the store told me that I would need a new sprayer dedicated to Termidor SC. Is that correct?
    A

    While Termidor SC is a non repellent insecticide and most others are repellent, as long as you are thoroughly rinsing the sprayer between products it should be fine.  We would recommend triple rinsing all parts of the sprayer before changing products.

  • Asked by Virginia from United States
    03/20/2015
    Q
    Is it possible to have termite damage and not ever see a live termite when doing repairs?
    While remodeling my laundry room and living room we found termite damage. There were no live termites only their trails and the damage in both rooms. I've got pest control to come out and treat home. My question is, is it possible for termites to damage only 2 rooms and then disappear completely? Also we had bats in our attic, but got rid of them in Sept. 2013, could the bats have eaten the termites?
    A
    It is very possible that there may have been a colony there at one time, or that it has moved somewhere else in the structure. You want to contact an exterminating company in your area to do an inspection. Normally, no charge. They will be able to tell you if you have termites and what species. Once we know, we can make an effective treatment plan.

  • Asked by David from Dacula, Ga.
    04/08/2013
    Q
    Termidor was trenched in my vegetable garden; can I use that area now or ever?
    Also, can I transfer dirt to another area as I have been using that spot for 12 years now and the soil is great. The trenched area was only 8 inches into garden; can I just plant away from that area.
    A
    You cannot use the soil that was treated with Termidor SC for planting edible plants. You must keep any edible garden plants far enough away from the soil so that the roots do not enter that area. You should also note that if you disturb the trenched area where the Termidor SC was applied you will be disturbing the barrier and could cause an opening for termites to cross.

    Q
    How do I apply Termidor SC against black widow and brown recluse spiders?
    We found black widow and brown recluse in our garage, how to I apply Termidor SC in order to be effective? Do I spray around the walls and corners or is there another way?
    A

    Termidor SC may be used outdoors only for spider control, per the product label. We do have a great Spider Control Kit that includes CB-80 Aerosol Insecticide for contact spraying, and Temprid SC, which can be applied indoors as a crack and crevice or spot treatment. This kit also contains glue boards, which are excellent tools for monitoring and for catching stray spiders indoors. Please see our Spider Treatment Article for more information and tips about preventing spider infestations.
