Q&A Home

Dawn from Monclova, Ohio writes,

Did a trench treatment for termites. Stormed the rest of the day. Will this ruin the effectiveness of Termidor...

Termites found around the frame of a vinyl clad basement window. 6 - 8 inch deep trench dug, out 6 feet on either side of the window. Back filled the trench. Two hours later the rain started and continued all day. Should I treat again? How will this alter termidor's effectiveness?


Since you were able to add the back fill before the rain, your Termidor Termite barrier should be fine. You may want to re spray the perimeter 2 feet up and out in 6 months. Please call us at 866-581-7378 with any questions.
