George from Baltimore County, Md writes
Am I going to need any special equipment / tools for the Termidor application? I heard the termite guy on the local radio who said that if the person who applies the product does not possess a commercial grade mixer, Termidor won't be properly mixed and as a result won't be effective at all. He also suggested that applying Termidor requires a special equipment to apply the solution deep inside the soil. I wanted to make sure that my diy Termidor treatment is going to be effective. Kindly advise on the tools, equipment necessary to complete the procedure. Thank you.
Termite companies do want you to believe that special equipment is needed to do a termite application because of course they want your business. Please take a few minutes to read our article How to Perform a Termite Treatment which will explain how to do the treatment in laymens terms and also explain any needed equipment. Most folks find that they only need a 5 gallon bucket and perhaps a drill in some situations. You should follow the Termidor product label and you should mix Termidor with water as specified. No special equipment is needed to diltute Termidor because it is a water based product and readily mixes with water.
