    Q
    Am I required to keep pest control on my house?
    My pest control company told me I have to keep pest control on my house, or I won't ever be able to sell it (without proof of constant pest control) but it is expensive and they never find termite activity. I know that is always subject to change, but isn't there a way I can do it myself and not suffer the consequences if I decide to sell? Thank you!
    A

    We cannot answer that question for you.  You are definitely not required, however, if your state requires a termite letter at the time of closing, only professional companies can issue these letters and if you do not have an active contract with a company you will usually be forced to pay a large sum to have your house treated to get a clearance letter.  You should call your state Department of Agriculture which is usually the department that manages pest control companies and ask if your state is one that requires a termite closing letter when selling a house.

    Q
    How effective is Termidor SC against termites? Is it easy to apply Termidor SC?
    A
    Termidor SC is very effective in treating termites in the soil and lasts longer than any other liquid concentrate labeled for termites. Treating with Termidor SC can be easy but requires a lot of labor when trenching and drilling. Please read the following article by clicking on the link on How to Perform Your Own Termite Treatment for step by step instructions.

    Q
    Termidor/Tarus concentration and depth penetration....
    I have a two spots where the termites look like they are entering. I will use either Termidor or Tarus, but there are different concentrations. Is 0.06% ok or better to user higher in those spots. Additionally 4 gal per 10 feet is standard. Should I be decreasing the feet to get product deeper into ground in trouble areas.... If so how much? Lastly ok to use product day after rain
    A
    Both Termidor and Taurus would be applied at .8 oz per gallon of water.  The 6 inch deep trench is deep enough and there is generally no need to go lower than that.  Decreasing the footage the 4 gallons covers does not make the product penetrate deeper as it is going to bind to the soil it is applied to.  It is ok to use the product a day after rain but you want to make sure the soil is not too saturated with water from the rain.

  • Asked by Emily from Central Texas
    06/20/2014
    Q
    When applying Termidor SC for ant control is it a good idea to dampen the soil prior to treatment?
    or water it in after treatment?
    A
    According to the label, you should not apply Termidor SC when precipitation is occuring or treat soil that is water-saturated or frozen. It is best to wait until you have a few days of no rain in the forecast so there is at least 24 - 36 hours time after you treat before it rains.  Termidor SC is made to bond to the soil but it needs time to "set" and bond to hold up against a rain event.

    Q
    What temperatures for outside trench application for termites
    A
    When it comes to termites, you should never wait as there is never a best time.  Especially if you are worried about activity.  Having said that the dryer the soil the better for Termidor SC when you are using it as a prevention in a trench around the perimeter of the home.  Termidor SC is made to bond to the soil, and the less moisture in the ground, the easier it is for it to take hold and provide long lasting protection.  The only temperature that effects Termidor SC is when it is below freezing.  We recommend reading our 'How to Perform A Termite Treatment'article. It offers information on application, tools needed, product recommendations and other instructions.

    Termidor SC is only labeled for application right up against a structure and is not labeled to treat fire ant mounds.  We do carry Extinguish Plus Fire for fire ants.

    Q
    Can I use Termidor SC around trees with and without termite infestations?
    A

    Unfortunately, Termidor SC is not labeled to be used in a tree application. Only up against a structure. If you need a product that can be used around trees we would recommend using a product like Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate which can be used in this type of application.

    Q
    Should I wear some type of mask when using Termidor SC ?
    Is it safe to breathe any fumes that come from mixing it?
    A

    Termidor SC is a very safe product and widely used by professional companies inside homes every day across the country.  Termidor SC is odorless and does not have any fumes. You only need to wear a face mask if you will be doing the application in a poorly ventilated or enclosed area. All other applications will require you to wear long sleeves, long pants, shoes and socks and gloves. Be sure to wash your hands after the application before you eat, drink, chew gum or use the restroom.

  • Asked by Steve from Brattleboro Vt
    06/29/2015
    Q
    Would we use Termidor SC to treat an old nesting sight and very minimal termite damage?
    A
    We recommend that you apply a termiticide in a trench and drilled holes around the perimeter of your home to provide a barrier that will last up to 10 years in the soil. It will eradicate the termites in as little as 90 days depending on the size of the colony or colonies. If you plan to treat the home yourself, we recommend that you get the meausrements (lineal footage) and read the How to Perform a Termite Treatment Article.

    Q
    Can you recommend a sprayer and nozzle to inject Termidor SC into wall voids?
    I have Subterranean termites along a wall that I want to treat locally; plan is to drill holes into wall directly above the baseboard and injecting Termidor SC into wall void. Can you recommend a Sprayer and nozzle suited to spray thru holes into wall voids?
    A

    Just about any 1 gallon pump sprayer will do. We prefer the Chapin  Premier 1 Gallon Pump Sprayer 21210XP because of the brass construction in the shutoff valve, wand, and nozzle. The nozzle is adjustable and using the pin stream spray would allow you to spray through a hole in the wall.  All of the parts are replaceable when they wear out and when cared for properly will last for many years.   You may want to look over our How To Do A Termite Treatment article to learn how you can protect the rest of your home against termites in the future.

    Can I spray a wood fence that has termites?
    It's on top of cinder blocks.

    Termidor SC works best if applied in a trench around the fence post or in this case Cinder blocks. If you want to treat the damaged areas directly then you can drill and inject Jecta

    Q
    Is 6 inches deep enough when trenching? How come drilled holes have to be deeper?
    I am getting more confident in being able to tackle trenching and drilling for Termidor. I noticed that the guide states when you are drilling around the foundation, the deeper you go, the better. How come this is not the case for trenching? Do sub-termites not live deeper than 6 inches into the soil? And what is the recommended method in pouring Termidor down the drilled foundation, should you use a funnel?
    A
    The trench should be 6" x 6" as stated in the product label as the large volume of dilution will go deeper than the 6" (the termites usually come closer to the surface to forage as that is where the wood will come into contact with the soil). The drilled holes should be deeper because you are trying to pump in such a large volume of diluted product into a tiny space and the deeper the thin hole the easier it will be for the product to disperse into the soil.

    Q
    I have dry wood termites in a live tree and want to try to rid the tree of tremites. What is the best product?
    A

    Termites do not normally attack live, healthy trees so you most likely will not find any products that will work as a ground barrier around the trees.  Most people are primarily concerned with protecting the big investment, their home, and Termidor SC would be the product to use for that.  It is only labeled to be used adjacent to the structure though.  Please take a moment to read over our article on "How to do a Termite Treatment" for complete details.

    Q
    I have drop ceiling in garage. Can I spray Termidor between sheetrock and block wall and would this help?
    A
    Termidor SC is only labeled to be used outside as a termite prevention in a trench.  Inside it would only be used to treat active infestations by drilling directly into the wood they are infesting and spraying into the gallery.
