Tenting & trenching for active infestation. Proposing to 'flood crawlspace of my 100 year old home with Termidor SC. Would this do anything? Says 40 gallons or so (900 sq ft house). Says eventually will sink into ground but I cannot find anything on effaced of this as a treatment. Also, 'rodding for subterranean but I don't think plan on trenching...says every 10 to 12" using pressure gun. Does this create a barrier?
We cannot recommend or advise to flood a crawlspace with Termidor SC unless concrete will be poured over it afterwards. You may view our Termidor SC and Flooding Q&A for more information on this. Also, here is the full product label so you may review complete application instructions and methods.
Professional companies usually will not dig a trench, but they will use the rodding method because they have the truck rig to be able to do so. This method is a much faster process. Rodding will still help to control termites.
