How to use Altriset in just 3 steps:
Altriset is for OUTDOOR USE ONLY and is made to be used as an in-ground subterranean termite treatment to control and prevent termites from infesting your home.
1. Dig a 6-inch deep by 6-inch wide trench right against and around the outside foundation of your home.
2. Pour the recommended amount of diluted Altriset into the trench (4 gallons per 10 feet of trench). Most professionals would use a 100 gallon spray rig on the back of a truck to mix and apply this product. However, if you do not have access to such equipment, we recommend using a 5 gallon paint bucket and drawing a line at the 4 gallon mark. Mix 1.3 oz. of Altriset per 4 gallons of water (.34 oz per gallon). Pour 4 gallons of mixed solution for every 10 feet of trench around your home.
3. Allow the mixture to to seep into the trench. Replace the backfill into the trench, but remember to make sure to mix some of the diluted Altriset with the backfill to achieve a complete barrier.
Is Altriset Better than Termidor?
Altriset introduces a whole new type of chemistry that is similar but different than Termidor SC. Both products are transferred throughout the termite colony for total colony elimination. However, unlike Termidor, Altriset is the first and only termiticide labeled Reduced-Risk by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
- Eliminates termites in less than three months when used in accordance with the label
- Halts termite feeding within hours
- Provides residual protection for more than five years
- Non-repellent chemistry is indiscernible to termites
- Behavioral impact on termites enhances translocation throughout the colony
- Mode of action like no other termite control product
- Excellent environmental and toxicological profile
- First and only reduced-risk liquid termiticide

First, my experience with your company was exceptional! All of my future pest control needs will be handled through you. I can't say whether or not Altriset works or not as the 3 month timeframe has not expired yet, but I can say how easy it was to use; very easy. Also the added benefit of not having to worry about our various outdoor pets made this purchase a no brainer. The price was in line with other top brands since it would have taken multiple containers to cover the same area as one Altriset. A local pest control company wanted $1200 to do what I did for less than $200, and I probably did a better job.

May 25, 2011Ian asked:
QCan Altriset be safely used inside a crawl space? It is represented as an exterior product.
I am working with a friend. We have an active infestation of eastern subterranean termites. The crawl is very low but mostly accessible, and includes two large stumps that were not removed prior to construction. The floor of the crawl is sand over clay. Wood damage is evident in the hot spot in the house above. I'd like to apply the Altriset inside the crawl space, specifically treating all joists and the stumps as well as the sandy '"floor" of the crawl. I do realize from its video that Altriset can be applied in a trench around the building after dilution. Is it safe for interior use or crawlspace use?
AAltriset as well as all other termite products are intended for use around the outside of the home as well as underneath the home. When a termiticide says that not for use inside the home, it means you cannot spray it inside around baseboards, window sills, and other places like you would a pest control spray. Termiticides are not pest control sprays. The crawl space under the house is not considered the inside actually because it is not the living space, so they intended for use under the house.
June 14, 2011Brian asked:
QCan a homeowner plant a garden in soil that was treated with Altriset?
AYou should not plant a garden that will contain edible vegetation in the same soil that was treated with Altriset. Altriset persists in soil for at least 5 years and it is not labeled to be used in places where edible plants will be grown. If you really do want to plant a vegetable garden in an area that was treated with Altriset you will need to remove all of the soil and replace it with untreated soil. You should note though that if the soil is removed and it is in the termite treatment barrier zone you will be left with a hole in your termite barrier. If you just want to plant a flower garden you should not run into any issues.
February 27, 2011Tyler asked:
QCan you do a perimeter (plus style) treatment with Altriset like you can with Termidor SC?
EPLI... no trenching the inside wall in a crawl space.
AAt this time, the Altriset label does not permit to do a Termidor SC type treatment. We would have to recommend treating the entire structure as instructed on the Altriset label. We can only recommend what is permitted on the label.
February 3, 2013Amanda from Houston, Tx asked:
QWill the sense clay soil around my house impact the absorption/dispersal of Altriset?
AWe have dense clay here in Georgia also and termite treatments are not an issue. It may take longer for the solution to absorb into the soil, but it should absorb none the less. It definitely helps to wait until the soil is rather dry, to soak up the solution easier, rather than treat if the soil is a little saturated from a previous rain event.
June 29, 2013Agi from Los Angeles,ca asked:
QWhat is the distance allowed to plant vegetables from the area of treatment with Altriset?
there are 2 houses in one lot. If the back house is treated with altriset what is the distance that is safe to plant edible vegetables?
AThe edible plants root system needs to be out of the treated area. Usually as long as the area treated with Altriset is at least 10-15 ft from the edible plants that is sufficient to make sure the roots are not going into the treated zone.
May 20, 2011Ron asked:
QCan I use Altriset to address a carpenter ant issue similar to how Termidor is used?
I am looking for the safest (least hazardous) option for perimeter treatment of home in central PA targeting carpenter ants.
AUnfortunately Altriset is not labeled for use against carpenter ants. Altriset is labeled for subterranean termites only. Almost all of the concentrated liquids that are labeled for carpenter ants do have a bit of a higher level of toxicity than you may be comfortable with. Products such as Termidor SC are still very safe you just need to be sure you are reading and following the product label. Once Termidor SC is applied as a perimeter treatment it will only last for about 6 weeks in the environment. If Termidor SC is not for you, there are other viable options such as baiting. One of the least hazardous treatment options would be a bait such as Intice Granules. According to the Intice Granular Bait MSDS "The product is considered practically non-toxic via the oral, dermal or inhalation routes and not considered dermally irritating or sensitizing".
May 21, 2011John asked:
QCan Altriset be used in termite mounds?
AWe are not sure what you mean by termite mounds, but Altriset is a great termiticide and if you get the product where the termites are and it touches them, then they will pass it around and it will kill them. Please read the product label for full treatment instructions.
June 30, 2011Larker asked:
QWill Altriset work on leafcutter ants? What is the best product for these types of ants? Would Termidor work?
AAltriset is not labeled for use on ants. Termidor SC will work for most species of ants but it is not specifically labeled for leaf cutter ants. We believe the reason leaf cutter ants were not included on the label is because most people do not have leaf cutter ants on their homes or trying to gain access to their homes and Termidor is only allowed to be used on or immediately around a structure. Leaf cutter ants can be a difficult pest to get rid of. The colonies are large and the ants make their own food so poison baits only have limited effects on this species of ants. According to several university websites Maxforce Complete Granules containing hydramethlynon are some what effective, though they will usually eliminate only about 30% of a large colony in one treatment and will need to be reapplied several times. DeltaGard granules is one of the only products actually labeled for leaf cutter ants. The product label recommends treating the mound directly and lightly watering the granules in. Again it may take several treatments to get the desired results. We also recommend contacting your local cooperative extension office to see if they have any recommendations for products that have worked for other people in your region. We have had several positive results from customers that used Termidor around the outside of their home for leaf cutter ants
January 25, 2011Joey asked:
QIs Altriset safe if it comes into contact with plants?
AAltriset should not cause damage to plants. Having said that, it is important to realize that Altriset is not labeled to spray on plants so care should be taken to apply Altriset only as instructed on the product label.
November 12, 2013Ralph from Livermore, Ca asked:
QFruit trees, how close can they be to the Altriset trenchline?
Is it safe to eat the fruit, my orange tree is 7 feet from the outside house perimeter, my lime tree is only 27 inches, and my apricot is 9 feet.
April 30, 2013Tito from Ga asked:
QIn front of Garage drilling for termites?
I have a 3 houses in my neighborhood that have same house with termite. The pro came and did not drill in front of garage or inside. Should not drill too?
AYes, we always recommend performing a complete barrier treatment around the structure. That includes the 6inx6in trench where you can dig, as well as drilling along the inside of garage by the foundation. Directions for drilling are to use a 18in long drill bit that is 1/2in or 3/8in wide and drilling holes 12in apart.
October 6, 2013Paul from Lancaster, Pa. asked:
QCan I spray Altriset Termiticide on and around the pallets to prevent termite infestation?
I have firewood laying on wood pallets in my yard by my garage. The pallets are sitting atop bricks.
A We apologize but we would not recommend that you spray the firewood with any insecticide. The manufacturers do not recommend this. Any insecticide should not be breathed in, and when burned these toxins can become airborne. It would be suggested to not burn the wood that you treat with anything. Altriset is only labeled to be applied adjacent to structures but you could spray Dominion 2L around the firewood only on the ground but be careful to not apply to the firewood.

QI need the buy america certification on this Altriset Teriticide.
AWe are not sure what certification this is. You should contact the manufacturer directly. You can reach Dupont by calling 1-800-441-7515
April 23, 2013Gaston from Ga asked:
QDrilling driveway, patio, and front porch for Altriset
I have a garage attached to the house. I have to drill in the driveway around the house I believe. How can I know I will not hit water or sewage. I also have to drill front porch, back patio. My slab is 4 in in back and 8 in front of the house.
ANormally, the water and sewage lines are a lot lower than than 18in. because they are laid in the ground before the land is graded to build on. If you are still unsure, we recommend contacting your city or county for the blue prints.
