    Q
    Can I spray the Termidor SC on Austrian pines?
    A

    Termidor SC cannot be used away from the foundation of the home/structure unless you are direct treating a carton nest as defined by the Termidor product label. It is not allowed to be used as a trench treatment, drench, or spray on or around a tree out on the property for control of any pest. A better option would be to use a product like Talstar P around the base of the tree if you are concerned there could be termites or other insects in that vicinity. Talstar would safe to use on the tree and would eliminate any insects on the tree, and any that pass through treated soil as well.

    Q
    Termidor sc mata las carcomas que hacen agujeros en la madera debajo de la casa?
    A

    Si usted esta encontando termitas en la madera, Termidor SC no es el producto que recomendariamos. Termidor SC debe ser mezclado con agua y distribuido en una zanja de 6 pulgadas de profundidad que se cava alrededor de la base de la casa, o rociado 1 pie arriba y 1 pie havia fuera contra la estructura. 

    Bora-Care suele ser la opción preferida si la mayor parte de la madera está expuesta y es la madera cruda que está tratando, lo que significa que no está pintado, manchado o sellado, es sólo madera normal. Bora-Care se hace sólo para la madera, y usted no tiene que saber exactamente donde las termitas son para que funcione, que es una ventaja. Bora-Care se pulveriza uniformemente sobre todas las superficies expuestas de la madera y realmente penetra a través de toda la pieza de madera. Cuando las termitas de la madera tratan de consumir la madera después de haber sido tratada, ingieren el Bora-Care con la madera y mueren. No importa dónde estén en el bosque, Bora-Care los encontrará siempre y cuando trate la madera expuesta que puede ver. El otro beneficio principal es que Bora-Care se queda en la madera para siempre, por lo que no tendrá que preocuparse por termitas o escarabajos infestando la madera que trató de nuevo.

    Q
    How to treat a new home with Termidor?
    We are getting ready go build a new home this fall. Do you recommend treating the entire ground underneath the basement floor before it is poured? Will the termidor sc be just as effective if we put it in the trench around the footing of the basement which will be 10 ft deep or must the termidor sc be applied to a trench that is only 6 inches deep? Is it necessary to treat our entire area of land that the house will sit on as an old house was there before?
    A
    If you are building a home you should treat the ground before any footings or slabs are poured.  This is because you will never have the opportunity again to treat underneath slabs.  When treating these areas, you are supposed to apply 1 gallon of Termidor per 10 square feet.  Treat all areas that will have a slab poured including basements, patios, porches, and garage slabs.  Then, when the house is completed and all grade levels have been placed next to the house, you should do a 6 inch trench and treat around the home as well.  This is the proper way to treat a new construction home.

    Q
    I have "Crazy Raspberry" Ants. They are tearing up my wiring in my well and septic.
    They are able to out-compete fire ants because they reproduce faster. The ants are not attracted to ordinary ant baits, are not controlled by over-the-counter pesticides, and are harder to fully exterminate because their colonies have multiple queens. (Taken from Wikipedia) I have read that the only type of pesticide which will kill them is fipronil. Does your MaxForce product have this pesticide in it? I didn't see it listed on the product sheet
    A
    I believe the Fipronil product they were referring to was Termidor SC. Termidor SC used outdoors and Phantom used indoors have been the most effective products to control crazy Raspberry Ants. Ant baits (including the maxforce product that contains fipronil) and synthetic pyrethroid insecticides do not seem to do an effective job controlling this ant species. Texas A&M University has done extensive research regarding these ants and you can find detailed articles on their extension website.

    Q
    Do I still use the trench method to apply Termidor SC when my lower level floor is 4ft below grade?
    I have a split level home. The front side is 4ft below grade to the lower level floor. Do i still apply termidor using the trench method at the standard mix to treat for subterranean termites? A stump near my house had a swarm last week and just trying to treat my home for piece of mind.
    A

    Yes, you would still apply Termidor SC or whatever termiticide you are using in the 6 in x 6 in trench at the standard rate of 4 gallons per 10 linear feet. Where you would apply additional product would be where there are footers, where you would use a termite rod or hollow tube to apply additional product from grade to the top of the footing.  Per page 7 of the product label

     When the footing is more than 4 feet below grade, the applicator has the option to either (1) trench and rod to a minimum depth of 4 feet into the trench along the foundation walls or (2) trench alone along the foundation walls to a minimum depth of 4 feet. The actual depth of treatment will vary depending on soil type, degree of compaction, and location of termite activity. When the top of the footing is exposed, the applicator must treat the soil adjacent to the footing to a depth of 4 feet but not to exceed the bottom of the footing. DO NOT treat a structure below the bottom of the footing.

    Q
    Can Termidor SC be used indoor for roaches, and is it safe for my dogs?
    A
    No, Termidor SC should not be applied indoors at all. It is an exterior treatment product only. We do carry Roach Control Kits that are very effective in controlling this type of insect indoors and/or outside. Any of the products mentioned should be applied in the labeled areas when the animals are not in the area until completely dried.

    Q
    I treated my house 2 years ago with Termidor Sc and now I am seeing what looks to be dry wood termites, Why?
    I saw the Formosan termites at the end of May and through June, but now I see something different. I treated my house per directions and it still looks like I have a problem. What should I do? What should I use?
    A

    Drywood termites are all contained in a piece of wood.  They do not go back to the ground like subterranean termites. So if you did a trench with Termidor it will not treat the Dry wood termites. Please see our Drywood Termite Control Page.

    Q
    Our house has a crawl space. Can we spray Termidor directly on the ground to prevent termites?
    A
    Spraying just on the surface of the ground with Termidor SC will not offer any protection from termites in the crawl space.  We would recommend doing the crawl space with Termidor by trenching the inside perimeter and around all of the piers, and treat just as you would around the outside.  We have a great video with instructions here on how to do so.

    Q
    Should plumbing chases be treated with Termidor SC where the pipes penetrate the ground?
    My house is a single story with a concrete slab on grade foundation and has interior plumbing chases easily accessible through access panels. When a panel is opened, I can see the water and sewer pipes going directly into the untreated soil below. Should the exposed soil in these cavities be sprayed or soaked as part of the treatment process? Does Termidor give off dangerous gases?
    A

    If you are able to access the soil around the pipes, yes, it would be recommended to treat the top few inches with Termidor SC around them.    There is no harmful fumes released.

    Q
    How come termidor sc is not sinking in my concrete?
    I drilled 1/2" wide and about 20" deep on my concrete, but my termiticite is not sinking in. Is there any solution to this?
    A

    Sometimes the ground is slow to soak up the Termidor SC you place in the holes.  You may need to fill the holes, then go work on something else for an hour, come back and fill them again, go work on something else.....3 to 4 times to get the proper amount down the holes.

    Q
    how to treat under slab house without drilling
    I believe the nest of the termites attacking our house is directly under it. Our house is on a slab but we cannot drill into it because we have radiant heat in the floors. In my research I've seen it mentioned that you can insert rods under the slab to treat but I cant find more detail on how to best do this...and we would like to do it ourselves. Please advise oh how to do this!
    A

    Rodding under the slab of a house from the exterior is a complex and detailed process that we do not recommend attempting yourself. We recommend that you contact a local reputable termite company for an inspection and estimate for something like this. If you have termites in the home, then you can spot treat where there are active termites using a ready-to-use termiticide foam such as Termidor Foam which will transfer throughout the rest of that termite colony.

    Q
    I need 4 to 6 bottles of Termidor. How many to a case and is there a case lot discount?
    Besides treating foundation perimeter, have signs of termite activity in two areas of open soil, 9'x18' and 15'x15' where lumber was left on ground. What is recommended to treat those areas? And what quantity?
    A

    There are 4 bottles to a case of Termidor SC. For this particular product there is not a lot discount available but we do offer fast, free shipping! We apologize for any inconvenience. Termidor SC is labeled to treat carton nests only away from the structure. The trench and drilling up against the foundation of the structure is very important. Please refer to our termite treatment article for additional helpful information on mixing and application.

    Q
    Can Termidor SC be applied to soil that has growing on it?
    A

    Termidor SC can be applied to the soil topically (1 ft up and 1 ft out directly up against the foundation) and in a trench for termite control. There should not be any harm done to any grass sprayed.
