I have termites in my Alder trees in So California. I purchased some Termidor SC from you guys. Should I mix and pour around the base of the infected tree or inject into tree limbs that already have died from termites? Help!
Termidor cannot be used in the manner you have described and is not labeled for use on trees as you described. 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 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
