Jc from Southern, Az writes,

Does Termidor SC kill black widows, brown recluse, tarantulas, and scorpions besides ants and termites?

I have a lot of black widow spiders, scorpions, and tarantulas around the house in addition to ants. I'd like to know if I can use Termidor SC to kill them keep them away from the house since I will be buying for ants/termite protection.


Termidor Sc is labeled for black widow and brown recluse spiders but it is not labeled for scorpions or for tarantulas. Termidor SC does not have an immediate knockdown but instead uses a delayed reaction kill which makes it especially effective for social insects like ants, termites and certain species of wasps. You should note that we are not aware of any product that is labeled for tarantulas.
