    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.

    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.

    Q
    Can I use Termidor in a barn where I keep bunnies?
    I’ve recently found drywall termites in my barn where I run a Rabbit Rescue. They were isolated in one spot, under a water heater in a back bathroom. I’ve since moved bunnies from the room, but can Termidor be used in that space with other bunnies in the barn or do all need moved out?
    A

    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.

    Q
    Which product can I use t for subterranean termite prevention?
    I live in CA and built a sunroom with subterranean perimeter insulation. The contractor dug a trench (still open) for slab insulation, so really easy to get deep in the ground. I understand the insulation is very attractive to termites, so want to be on this.
    A

    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.

    Q
    How does the home owner protect his home from termites?
    A
    Please check out our article Barrier and Soil Treatments. This article gives you a step by step guide to treating and preventing termites. Termidor works so well, because whenn it is applyed in the ground, it actually binds with the soil, providing protection for us up to 10 years.

    Q
    is it possible to mix termodor sc with quickset concrete to control insects outside
    A
    You cannot mix Termidor SC with concrete for insect control. Termidor SC can be used in the soil under concrete or you can drill holes through the concrete to reach the soil but it cannot be mixed with the concrete itself. Please read the Termidor SC product label for a full listing of the ways Termidor SC can be used.

    Q
    How many days before slab is poured can Termidor SC be applied?
    A

    Termidor SC needs atleast 24 hours to bond to soil before pouring a concrete slab. You should apply Termidor SC at the rate of 1 gallon per 10 square feet.  You should apply slightly more around the perimeter edges and around any plumbing pipes or expansion joints that will be in the slab.

    Q
    How will I know if the Termidor has worked after I applied it to a trench around my house?
    How will I know if the Termidor has worked after I applied it to a trench around my house? I want to know if there are active termites inside my home (under my floorboards is where they were before this).
    A

    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.

    Q
    I have a large frame house. Do I have to spray Termidor SC underneath the house as well as digging a trench?
    What are my options? I don't want to crawl underneath the house to spray.
    A

    When applying Termidor SC to a home, you would follow the method of digging a 6x6 trench, around the foundation and use 4 gallons to every 10 linear feet. Be sure to read our Liquid Termite

    Q
    Can I spray/ broadcast or foam an attic for drywood termites in CA?
    Does termidor soak into the attic member wood?
    A
    No, Termidor SC is not applied inside the structure as a spray or broadcast application. It can be mixed with ProFoam and applied using a PolyFoamer for voided areas (spot treat only-see product label for specific application instructions). Termidor SC is not a wood treatment product. 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
    What would be the best product and approach to use for an ongoing ant problem?
    We are in Florida for the winter months. We arrived back early Dec this year and have had a continuous ant problem every since. I have never seen anything like this before and I've been coming down for 10 yrs. The ants are in every single area of the house, on the table, counter tops, bathroom counter etc...lots of ants. I even had pest control come in and spray once, but didn't seem to help at all so gave up on that. I'm leaving to go back to Wi soon and am wondering if I leave enough of the right poison out, if maybe it will help while I'm gone. Any suggestions? Thanks
    A
    Termidor SC would work fantastic to put a barrier up outdoors.
    Termidor is the # 1 choice for ant control around the home. Termidor is a non-repellent insecticide that works with a delayed reaction amd also has a transfer effect. That means that ants cannot tell that the Termidor is there and will walk right over it and then pick the product up on their bodies and inadvertently carry it back to the colony, then through normal social interaction the ants spread the Termidor and wipe out the colony. Termidor only needs to be applied two times per year and is effective for a wide variety of insects including ants, centipedes, roaches, spiders, silverfish, wasps and many other nuisance insects. You will need to apply Termidor SC 1-2 ft up the foundation and 1-2 ft out onto the ground, around door frames, window frames, places where cables, pipes or wires go through the wall and any other crack or crevice where the ants can gain entry into your home. Indoors you can use Phantom to treat cracks and crevices.

    Q
    Termidor bubbling my concrete
    I had my home treated for termites and on my colored concrete is a white patchy substance that is eating my concrete. What can I use to remove that if it is indeed from the treatment. It gets this weird white stuff almost like snow on it?
    A
    We apologize but we have never heard of Termidor bubbling concrete or any other surface or causing any sort of discoloration. We would suggest contacting the manufacturer of Termidor directly at 800-669-2273 or the company who installed your colored concrete to find out what kind of chemicals it may have to cause a reaction with other items.

    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.
