    Q
    Can Termidor SC be used first, then Boracare sprayed on top of it in crawlspaces?
    A

    Termidor SC is not really meant to be used as a crawl space wood treatment.  If you are going to be applying Boracare, it is not necessary to also use Termidor.  Boracare will penetrate completely into the wood and will remain active for the life of the wood.

    Q
    If there is no difference between Termidor SC and Taurus SC, why would a state ban one product and not the other?
    A

    Termidor Sc and Taurus SC are essentially the same product they are just made by different manufacturers. They both carry almost the exact same label and there is not any advantage to using one product over the other. There are many reasons that include: state restrictions, licensing etc that are involved with allowing products to certain states.

    When it rains a lot, will it wash Termidor SC off my house?
    A

    Termidor SC is labeled for against structures 1 ft and 1 ft out. It is safe if it had at least 24 hrs after application to dry prior to rain. We do offer products that are great for other areas on the structure for carpenter bees.

    Q
    Does Termidor bond to mulch too?
    I understand that Termidor bonds to soil, but does it also bond to mulch?
    A

    Termidor SC does not bond to mulch the same way it bonds to the soil.  When applied to the soil per label instructions, it will bond with the soil to remain effective for up to 10 years.

    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
    Soaking the foundation
    I need run a series of soaker hoses around my house to adequately soak the foundation asap, however, i did just notice a bit of termite infestation in one area of my house. What is my best course of action here?
    A

    Termidor SC would be used to directly spot treat the active infestation by drilling into the infested wood and spraying into the gallery directly.  You would also want to apply in a trench around the home.  We have a step by step guide that will walk you through how to do your own termite trenching treatment. You can see the guide by clicking on the link here.

    Q
    After the 6x6 perimeter trench has been treated, would it be advisable to fill the trench with rock or gravel
    Would filling the trench with rock or gravel allow for future treatments without re-digging the trench as the rock/gravel would remain permeable? Perhaps this would reduce effectiveness of the treatment as it would also allow water to access the treated soil.
    A

    The trench should be filled back with the soil you removed to create it so that it can be treated and create the area termites will go through to contact the Termidor SC.  It will last 10 years or more in the soil.

    Q
    Brick Basement Treatment
    My home was built in 1923 and has a full basement with brick walls. I started removing some wood walls and noticed live termites where one of the wood walls was attached to the brick. The termites were entering right where the brick wall meet the concrete floor through a cracked mortar joint. This entry point is aprox 4 feet below grade. I have ordered product to do a perimeter treatment of the house. Is there anything special I need to do in addition to the standard perimeter treatment since the termites are entering the basement so far below grade?
    A

    If you are doing a perimeter treatment and there is a basement below grade, then the recommended treatment would involve rodding in addition to the standard 6 in x 6 in trench. A professional company would use a long rod attached to a truck spray rig to inject more termiticide every 12 inches to a depth of at least 4 feet. Since a homeowner does not have those tools, you could use a hollow rod or pipe, or a long drill bit (18-24 inches) to help create space to force more termiticide into the ground, ideally at least what you would use for regular treatment, which averages about ½ gallon of solution every 12 inches.

    Q
    What will counteract the effects of Termidor SC?
    The dog may have ingested water after yard was sprayed.
    A

    In California, Termidor SC is only labeled to be sprayed along the foundation exterior perimeter to an area six inches up and six inches out from where the ground meets the foundation, it is not to be broadcasted over the yard. If you feel your dog was exposed to the solution before it dried, you need to contact your vet as soon as possible.

    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.
