    Q
    Each 20 oz bottle covers how many square feet?
    A
    This will depend on how you are using it. If you are diluting it to be used as a general insect barrier spray around your foundation, then each gallon you mix up at the .8 ounce rate will cover roughly 1000 sq/ft. So you are looking at a total of 20,000 sq/ft for the whole bottle. If you are doing a termite trench treatment, each 20 ounce bottle will cover 60 lineal feet. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Q
    Can I mix Talstar and Termidor together @ gallon doses?
    A
    No, Talstar P and Termidor SC should NOT be tank mixed. Termidor SC can only be applied outdoors. Talstar P can be applied to indoor cracks and crevices and outdoors. If mixed together they will be ineffective as Termidor SC is a non-repellent. We are unsure what you are treating for so please provide additional information so that we can offer you more information.

    Q
    Will Termidor SC work for Florida carpenter ants and other carpenter ants?
    Are both attracted to the same baits? Florida carpenters seem more finicky-can't get them to take baits.
    A

    Carpenter ants in FL would be the same as carpenter ants in other regions of the country. We generally recommend using Termidor SC outdoors around the perimeter of your home. This is labeled to be used every six months outdoors.

    What types of bait are you using? We would be happy to make another recommendation if you have been using them for a while.

    Q
    Can I use Termidor SC to treat for termites where my well is located in my basement?
    How much product would I need to treat a 650 ft sq ft house?
    A

    We recommend contacting our office for treatment recommendations as we will need more information in order to advise on the correct way to treat for termites with Termidor SC . The depth of the basement walls, how close the well is to the exterior wall, and how many linear feet you are treating around the exterior. The square footage is not important as you need to know how many linear feet it is around the exterior of the home. You may reach us at 1-866-581-7378 Mon - Fri 9am-5pm EST.

    Q
    What are the best sprayer recommendations and products for indoor and outdoor insecticides? What would be the best treatment for Drywood Termites?
    Do I need a special gas powered type of equipment?
    A

    The Chapin Premier 1 Gallon Poly Sprayer 21210XP is a great general purpose hand pump sprayer that works great for general pest control applications both indoors and outdoors. For outdoor lawn applications, The Chapin Professional 4 Gallon backpack sprayer is a great option. The most popular general purpose insecticide is Talstar P. It is labeled for both indoor and outdoor use, treats over 75 insects, lasts 30 days outdoors (perimeter, ornamental, lawn and broadcast applications) and 90 days indoors (crack and crevice applications only)

    Drywood Termites are best treated with a termiticide foam like FUSE Termiticide Foam or BoraCare. You can see our How to Treat for Drywood Termite Guide here

    Q
    Where can Termidor SC be sprayed for spiders?
    A

    Termidor SC is labeled for spiders, but it can only be sprayed one foot up and one foot out around the exterior of a structure. A better option would be our Spider Control Kit. This kit contains the products you need to prevent or eliminate spider activity in and around your home. Using the three products in this kit after a thorough inspection of the target area will lead to a successful spider treatment program. This kit contains the liquid concentrate Temprid FX in easy-to-use single dose bottles. Temprid FX has two active ingredients that target most common crawling and flying pests long after the initial spray. The included CB-80 is a ready-to-use aerosol insecticide that kills spiders and insects quickly on contact. Finally, Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitors trap spiders and insects to help identify which pests are present and to monitor your treatment.

    Termidor SC would only be applied inside if using to spot treat an active infestation per the product label.  It cannot be used for prevention inside.

    Q
    Will Termidor treat moisture ants? How long will it take to get rid of all the ants including the colony?
    We found moisture ants in attic above the garage. I am not sure if there are any more ants behind the dry wall. If I spray the area I could see, will the ants be killed eventually? How long will it take if that's the case? Thanks.
    A
    We do not know what species of ant you are referring to as there is no ant called a "moisture" ant and ALL ants are attracted to moisture and must have it to survive. Do you know the exact species? There are no known resistance species of ant to Termidor so it would work to kill any ant colony. However, Termidor can not be used in any indoor space unless you are doing a direct spot treatment in a regularly unaccessible area on the whole colony. If you see an area they are trailing you could try either Termidor Foam to use in the galleries you think they are hiding in as this form of termidor has a broader label in where it can be used; or you can try the Complete Ant Kit and use a bait that they would take back to feed to the colony. You will want to check around your home for where the ants could have come in to either seal off these areas or cut back any bushes and trees that touch the home and use a general barrier spray regularly to keep them away in the future. Talstar would be a great easy to use and safe option for a barrier spray.

    Q
    What procedure do I use when concrete steps are in the way of drilling Termidor treatment holes?
    Steps for entering house are in the way for drilling perimeter of concrete patio for Termidor. Is it okay to keep the recommended hole pattern and drill around the concrete steps. Steps protrude away from house 3 feet and this is the site of known termites.
    A
    The steps should be drilled as well to apply the Termidor SC if possible. We recommend that you drill the holes 10-12" apart and disperse 4 gallons of finished solution every 10 lineal feet.

    Q
    What is the interior version of a Termidor to target ants?
    I want to use the Slow contact Kill method Like a TERMIDOR Type product. ONLY for the ( Interior of a House ) what is the best INTERIOR ANT Residual hands down ? Wes~
    A

    Phantom Insecticide would be a good option for ants indoors. It is a non-repellent product like Termidor SC. It does have a different active ingredient, however, it is a very good product for interior and exterior use. The mixing ratio is 3 fl. oz. per gallon of water.

    Q
    I've been using Termidor SC in one tank for about 5 years now, and there seems to be a rotten egg smell.
    seems like it only does it at the start of each new job after the tank has set up overnight. maybe some of the product was left in the hose. is there anyone else complaining about this. thank you
    A
    We have never heard of any one reporting this smell. Perhaps their is a high sulfur content in the water you are using. We recommend making sure you triple rinse the tank and hoses after use.

  • Asked by Tony from Palm Harbor, Fl

    Q
    What would be the best product to treat for white footed ants outdoors?
    A

    Baits do not normally work on White-Footed Ants so alternative methods will be needed. You will need to treat the lawn and any mounds you see with  Talstar P. Spray the Talstar around window and door frames. Please review our detailed article on How to Get Rid of White Footed Ants for more information on eliminating them from your home. Termidor SC is effective against all ants. Termidor SC is the most effective ant treatment product available because it does not just kill the ants that come in contact with it, but it also kills the queen and the rest of the colony when the ant that first came in contact with the product returns to the colony. Be sure to use Termidor SC in a very clean hand pump sprayer. If you use a sprayer that still has remnants of other products in it, you could ruin the way Termidor SC works. It is applied only in a 1 ft by 1 ft band around the exterior of the structure (do not spray Talstar P to the same area).

    Q
    If Termidor SC was sprayed on a rug, how long till I can use the rug in the house?
    If the rug is on the floor, after it is dry, is it safe for pets to walk, lay on?
    A

    Termidor SC is not labeled to be sprayed on rugs or carpets. We would recommend disposing of the rug. If you choose not to dispose of the rug, you may contact the manufacturer for information on how to clean it so it can be used indoors again.

    Q
    Treating around perforated tiled and white rocked perimeter.
    As we were building our house about 3 years ago, the inspector suggested that we add a second perforated tile (there was already a French Drain 7-8ft deeper at the walk-out basement floor height) right next to the foundation just below the surface (4-12") and fill the whole area with white rock. I really don't want to dig all of this up to apply the Termidor. Can I just trench down into the white rock a few inches and apply the Termidor next to the foundation as usual or do I need to get all the way down to the dirt? If the Termidor worked it way into the perf tile, would it still be effective? The construction is 12" filled block on a mono-slab and there is about 8" of block exposed before any wood, so I think I would see any tunnels if termites were in the area.
    A
    Termidor SC is made to bind to soil molecules. When Termidor SC is put in the ground as a soil treatment, it will last for at least 10 years. Although, it is a little different when it is applied to porous surfaces such as rocks. Porous surfaces will actually absorbe the active ingredient meaning that it would only last a few months. Therefore, we would recommend that you remove the rocks and be sure to treat the soil below according to the label instructions.
