When applied in a 6x6 inch trench/drilled holes, Termidor SC will cover 60 feet of trenching/drilled holes (10-12" apart).
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).
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.
Yes, you can use the same sprayer to apply both products. Please remember you should NOT apply Demand CS in the areas where you apply Termidor SC. You will want to make sure that you throughly wash your sprayer between uses.
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-Care. Bora-Care will also stay in the wood forever, preventing any new infestations for years to come.
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.
If treating in the barn at all for termites with Termidor you would want all the bunnies and any other animals out of the entire area during the treatment and until its dried and settled, typically over a couple of hours time frame. Bunnies can be sensitive to chemical use so having them all removed from the whole barn during that process is recommended.
Termidor SC is the top termite product on the market for treatment and prevention.Termidor SC is completely undetectable by subterranean termites and once termites touch it they contact, ingest and spread the termiticide until it eliminates the entire colony and it will last for about 10 years in the soil. You should perform a liquid termite treatment in the ground to get the termites where they are entering your house and for furture prevention.Please take a few moments to review our article and videos on How to Get Rid of Termites prior to treating.
Termidor SC starts to work within a few days of termites contacting a treated area but if you suspect an active infestation you will need to search and locate exactly where in the home they are infesting and spot treat the gallery directly. Otherwise there is no real way to know if the Termidor in a trench is working. Trenching is only part of protection and treatment for subterranean termites but if you are dealing with drywood, it would not have any effect on the termites since they would never have gone through the treated soil.
