Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate

Dominion 2L is an excellent termiticide and insecticide used for subterranean, drywood, dampwood termites and carpenter ants that contains the exact same active ingredient and precentage as Premise 2 and I Maxx Pro 2F. Dominion 2L can be sprayed directly on an active termite infestation, or poured in the ground around a home or building to protect against subterranean termites. Dominion 2L is also non-repellent, meaning that termites will crawl over the product without detecting it, and spread it to each other by touch and food sharing, eventually eliminating the entire infestation. Yields 50 gallons of finished solution per bottle.

How To Apply Dominion 2L Termiticide

How Dominion 2L Termiticide Works

Dominion 2L Termiticide/Insecticide is a versatile non-repellent liquid concentrate with the active ingredient Imidacloprid. Imidacloprid is in the class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids, neuro-active insecticides that are modeled after nicotine. Imidacloprid works by disrupting inhibiting stimuli transmission within an insect’s nervous system. More specifically, imidacloprid blocks a certain type of neuronal pathways which are much more prevalent in insects than mammals.

Termites and ants do not detect Dominion 2L and pick up the active ingredient through contact and ingestion. Because the active ingredient works slowly, ants and termites continue their regular activity and pass the active ingredient throughout the colony through touching and food sharing, eventually eliminating the entire colony.

Dominion 2L also works as an insecticide for turf and ornamental pests. Dominion 2L works as a foliar spray, killing insects on contact, or as a systemic insecticide. As a drenching treatment, Dominion 2L works from the ground up, being absorbed through a plant’s root system and killing insects that feed on that plant, such as aphids and whiteflies, by ingestion.

Target Uses of Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate

Dominion 2L is a liquid concentrate termiticide and insecticide for use outdoors around residential and commercial structures. As a termiticide, Dominion 2L is extremely popular as a ground treatment, either pre-construction or post-construction trenching for the prevention and treatment of subterranean termites. Dominion 2L has the same ingredient as Premise 2 Termiticide, but at a much lower cost. Indoor applications of Dominion 2L are limited to spot treatments for live termite infestations.

Dominion 2L is also an excellent systemic insecticide for a variety of turf an ornamental pests. Dominion 2L can be applied as a foliar spray on ornamentals and turf, or as a soil drench or injection around trees and shrubs. Dominion 2L can also be used as part of ant management programs to control aphids, scale insects, mealybugs, and other sucking pests on ornamentals to limit the honeydew available as a food source for ant populations.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Imidacloprid 21.4%

Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate Application Instructions

For subterranean termite control, the purpose of chemical soil treatment is to establish a continuous chemical treated zone (horizontal and/or vertical) between the wood and other cellulose material in the structure and the termite colonies in the soil. Structures containing wells or cisterns within the foundation of the structure can only be treated using the treated backfill method. Using a 0.1% solution (0.6 fl. oz. per gallon of water), use 4 gallons of finished solution per 10 lineal feet of 6 in. by 6 in. trench around the structure. For soil treatments to be covered by concrete slab such as under carports, porches, or basement floors, apply at a rate of 1 gallon or sufficient volume of solution to accurately and uniformly cover 10 square feet.

See our article How to Do a Subterranean Termite Treatment for further details of trenching treatment.

Dominion 2L can be converted to a foam to treat voids or hollow block to create a continuous treated zone or to treat active infestations of subterranean termites in structures at expansion rates of 5:1, 10:1, or 20:1.

  • For carpenter ants, use 0.6 fl. oz. per gallon of water to treat around the perimeter of a structure, concentrating on areas where pests may enter the structure.
  • For turfgrass, make applications preceding or during the egg laying period of the target pest. Most favorable applications will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pests, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Do not make applications when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water. Applications cannot exceed a total of 1.6 pints per acre per year.
  • For ornamental applications, the product must be placed where the growing portion of the target plant can absorb the active ingredient. The addition of a nitrogen containing fertilizer, where applicable, into the soil may enhance the uptake of Dominion 2L application can be made by foliar application or soil applications, including soil injection, drenches, and broadcast sprays.

* For soil drenching of trees and shrubs, use 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. per inch of trunk diameter or per foot of shrub height and apply through soil injection or soil drench.

* Always read the product label completely before use.

Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios for Dominion 2L:

  • 0.3 fl. oz. (9 mL)/gal. of water – 0.05% - some termite treatments
  • 0.6 fl. oz. (17 mL)/gal. of water – 0.1% - most termite applications, perimeter treatment for carpenter ants
  • 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. (14 to 17 mL) per 1,000 sq. ft. – 1.25 to 1.6 pt/Acre – Turf grass applications, ornamental broadcast applications, flowers and groundcovers – use highest rate for suppression of chinchbugs and mole crickets
  • 1.5 fl. oz. (45 mL) per 100 gal. of water or 6.0 fl. oz. per Acre – foliar applications to trees, shrubs and ornamentals
  • 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) per inch of trunk diameter or per foot of shrub height – soil injections/drench

Dominion 2L is for use in the following areas:

Termite treatments around structures and building construction; turfgrass (including sod farms), landscape ornamentals, fruit and nut trees (non-commercial), trees, shrubs, flowers and groundcovers, and interior plantscapes; turfgrass in home lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, and sod farms; in and around industrial and commercial buildings and residential areas: trees, shrubs, evergreens, flowers, foliage plants, groundcovers, interior plantscapes; state, national, and private wooded and forested areas (soil injection and soil drench applications); Pome Fruit trees: Apple, Crabapple, Loquat, Mayhaw, Pear, oriental Pear, Quince; Pecan trees; Grapes


Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate can only be used indoors for localized treatment of active termite infestations.


Perimeter Pest Control: Treat soil, turf, or ground cover adjacent to the structure where ants are trailing or may find food or harborage. Apply to flower, shrub or ornamental plant beds adjacent to the structure where ants may find food or storage. To control ants tunneling in soil apply a 0.05% to 0.1% solution as a drench or soil injection at intervals to establish a continuous treated zone. Treat along the edge of walls, driveways or other hard surfaces where ants are tunneling beneath the surface. Maximum application is once per month. Do not use against native or imported fire ants, pharaoh, or harvester ants.

Turfgrass: Apply Dominion 2L in sufficient water to provide adequate distribution in the treated area. Use equipment which will produce a uniform, coarse droplet spray, using a low pressure setting to eliminate off target drift. Do not apply through any irrigation equipment. Use 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. per 1,000 square feet. For chinch bug suppression, apply 0.6 fl. oz. (17 mL) before hatching of the first instar nymphs. For best control, irrigation or rainfall should occur within 24 hours after application to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Avoid mowing are until after irrigation or rainfall.

Foliar applications: Use 1.5 fl. oz. per 100 gal. of water for foliar pests on trees, shrubs, flowers, groundcovers, etc. Begin applications before the onset of high pest populations and reapply as needed. For broadcast applications, use 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. Use enough water to mix the product and thoroughly apply to the treatment area. Do not use less than 2 gallons of water per 1,000 sq. ft. For best results, irrigate after application to incorporate Dominion 2L into the upper soil level.

Soil drench: For trees, use 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. per inch of truck diameter (or per foot of shrub height for shrubs). Apply uniformly as a drench around the base of the tree in not less than 10 gallons of water per 1000 square feet. Direct application to the root area. Remove plastic or any other barrier that will stop solution from reaching the root zone. For soil injection, Use enough water to mix the product and inject an equal amount of solution in each hole. Use low pressure and sufficient solution for distribution of the liquid into the treatment area. For best control, keep the treated area moist for 7 to 10 days. Do not use less than 4 holes per tree or shrub.

    5 of 5 stars  Dominion 2L Product Review
    By Patrick in La Mesa, CA on 04/29/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I don't know why the wood adjacent to my bath tub wet-wall was moist? I found no leaks and the plumbing vent to the roof was well sealed. Condensation? The bath drainpipe and water inlets come up through a hole in the slab. The subterranean termite varmints tunneled 10' or 40' under the house slab and surfaced at this point of exposed earth attracted by the moist wood. They swarmed the first warm days in Spring. I treated the exposed earthen area with the Dominion 2L termiticide and then filled it in with sand which is known to obstruct termites. I treated the slab, wood framing, floor and molding with a 2:1 water to Bora-Care mixture. I sprayed Bora-Care down from the attic and drilled holes in the walls where there was no other access. I finished by treating the ground around the house with Dominion 2L. This is my first experience with a termite infestation and my problem appears to have been solved for under $170. I Thank for providing professional products at fair prices.

    2 of 5 stars  Unsure at this time
    By Gary in New Jersey on 04/28/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I had a major infestation of flying drone termites in my house. I trenched around my entire house 6-8" down and 4-5" away from foundation where I could and drilled a 1/2" hole 18" deep at the stoop and driveway every 10" and applied Dominion 2L at the rate shown for heavy infestation. I still had them in my house 5 days later though not as bad. I then went to the basement and exposed the exterior framing at the foundation and proceed to spray the BoraCare. 1/2 way through this process I found huge piles of dirt and trails a plenty underneath my front door. At this time I saturated the wood using the Dominion 2L. It is now over a week since then (2 weeks since treating outside) and I am still finding one or two termite upstairs everyday.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Dominion 2L is a non-repellent termiticide, meaning it does not kill the termites right away.  The product is a delayed kill so the termites above the ground have time to take the product back to the colony and the queen that is below ground.  This ensures that the colony is completely eliminated.  For this reason Dominion 2L and all other non-repellents including Termidor, take up to 90 days to kill a termite colony.  So it is normal to see activity for up to 90 days after treating your home.

    By Robert in Bloomfield ,CT on 05/21/2010

    I found the process not that difficult.  I used a short pickax to dig the trench, and needed 2 containers of Dominion. I found the tech support from the website to be great, but still have to wait a while to see if all termite activity ceases.  So far so good, no new mud tubes, and its been 3 weeks since the application.

    Order and delivery went as expected. This is the second time I was asked to review the product. I tried to mix and apply the product per the Purdue and Michigan State application notes. Took a lot of work for 7 large ash trees. Won't know if the product worked for a couple of years. The chemical concentration was much greater the the Bayer product.

    By Ron in Phila pa on 07/04/2016

    This is less expensive and a good alternative to taurus or termidor. I decided to purchase this instead of taurus or termidor because the area I needed to treat was a wooden shed about 60 feet from my home.I trenched the area and within a couple of weeks no signs of termites. If I had to treat my home I probably would have went with taurus or termidor because it has a longer life span in the soil.

    I waited too long and my Ash tree is paying the price from the Emerald ash borer. I couldn't afford another recommended product that cost $100+ and found this product. I have some lower dead limbs but the drench I have applied is looking to have stopped the spread.

QHow does Dominion 2L compare to Termidor?

ADominion 2L and Termidor SC are both non-repellent termiticides. One of the features of a non-repellent is that the product is undetectable by pests--they walk over it and touch it without knowing it, and then they are able to transfer the product to each other eventually wiping out the entire colony of termites or ants. Termidor SC does have a slightly longer residual in the ground. Termidor lasts about 10 years in the ground, and Dominion 2L will last around 7 years. Dominion 2L is a much better deal money wise; you can make double the amount of solution for a little more than half of the price.

QHow long does a Dominion 2L application last, and is it as good as Termidor SC?


Dominion 2L is a non-repellent just like Termidor SC, but it has a different active ingredient. Dominion 2L will last about 7 years in the ground and Termidor SC will last for 10 years.  Other then the length of time in the ground, they are both applied the same way.  Dominion 2L is half the cost of Termidor SC and that is the main reason why it has been so popular.  Dominion 2L is our best seller for termite control as of late and our customers have been very pleased with the results.

QI am out in southern Arizona, and we just had an inspection and we have couple of termite mud tubes.
I am planning on buying the Dominion 2L product. My questions are as follows: 1. We have two cement patios/porches that are about 5-7' wide-- do I need to drill or can I just apply the Dominion on the perimeter? 2. The termite company said they were going to spray something into the walls, and they called it an HP Mister? Do I need to inject anything into the walls? The walls are insulated so I assume the foam products wouldn't work. Is this an unnecessary step or is it just another layer of added protection? 3. Will the termite bait stations work if one of the mud tubes is coming up between a sidewalk and the stem wall? Or do I need to treat that with the Dominion 2L? Thanks for your help!


Dominion 2L is a great product for termite control.  When treating slabs you are supposed to drill where the slab meets the house. The goal of any termite treatment is to completely surround your home around the perimeter of the foundation. To get the product against your foundation where you have a slab you should drill through the slab. If you decide to trench around the slab then you will be leaving this important area against the house exposed to termites. 

I am not familiar with a HP Mister or what they could be placing in the wall.  Foam is not necessary if you can get to the termites under normal conditions.  

Termite bait stations are just a secondary form of protection.  A Baiting System will no take care of any termites that have already found wood in your house.  They are a preventative treatment only and will only intercept new colonies in the ground coming towards your house.  The only way to eliminate termites already in your home is to treat them directly with a liquid treatment.  

Please let us know if you have any further questions.  You should also read our "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article if you have not already.

QWhat treatments do you recommend for the Emerald Ash Borer? Can I spray the bark or sprinkle the material under the tree?


Dominion 2L<span font-size:13.3333px"=""> is labeled to use on trees to help protect against boring beetles. Treatments should begin in May or June and should be done every year to protect trees from the Emerald Ash Borers. Most people use a 5 gallon bucket or a large watering can to apply Dominion as a soil drench. You will need 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) of Dominion 2L per inch of trunk diameter for trees. It is recommended that you use the higher rate for boring beetles. The amount of water that is used will vary depending on soil conditions and volumes that are easy for applicators to use. The minimum amount of water that should be used is 1 pint per inch of trunk diameter for trees but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per inch of trunk diameter for trees. Denser soils such as clay do not accept water as readily, so the lower volume of water is suggested.  Since sandy soils can accept more water, using the higher volume of water is preferred. After the soil drench has been applied you should water it in with at east 1/2 inch of water. Note: Water simply acts as a carrier and it is important that even distribution of the product is achieved. Thus, more water may be used if the applicator feels runoff will not occur and proper penetration of the root zone is achieved. Insecticides applied to the soil are taken up by the roots and trans-located throughout the tree or shrub. Root/soil drenches offer the advantage of requiring no special equipment to apply (other than a bucket or watering can). However, surface layers of organic matter, such as mulch or leaf litter, can bind the insecticide and reduce uptake. Before applying drenches, it is important to remove or pull back any mulch or dead leaves so the insecticide solution is poured directly on the mineral soil. It is also important to keep the soil around the tree or shrub moist for the next 10-14 days after applications to encourage uptake.

QHow does Dominion 2L compare to Talstar P for Red Carpenter ants?
I bought Talstar from you and you have a great service. I sprayed once but still find Florida Red Carpenter ants outside. I did perimeters within perimeters to box them in. I looked for their trails and sprayed them. Did area at base of house all around as directed. Dominion 2L is non-repellant so maybe it is a better choice. Carpenter ants are so smart.


Talstar P will kill ants that come in contact with it, but will not eradicate them. Dominion 2L sprayed around the outside perimeter of the structure will. You should mix .6 fluid oz. per gallon of water to treat for carpenter ants. This will give you approximately 1000 sq. feet of treatment. Please see our Carpenter Ant Treatment Guide for more information and tips about treating for carpenter ants.

QIs Dominion 2L applied on the ground or on top of the foundation?


Dominion 2L Termiticide/Insecticide can be used in the soil and/or around the foundation. Where you are using the product will depend on what you are treating for. For termites, you will dig a trench around the structure and apply directly to the soil. For pests, such as ants, you will apply topically one foot up and one foot out.

QHow long to see results for Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate treatment of bronze birch borer?
How long should it take to see results for treatment of bronze birch borer in a tree 3.5 " in diameter and 15 feet high? The soil drench was done May 30th and the foliage has not yet returned in the upper crown of the tree.

A Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate  systemic will translocate up a tree approx. 2 feet per month.

QHow would I perform a soil drench treatment in my house is on a slope?
I would like to buy Dominion Termiticide to apply as a barrier around the house and set and forget (for 7 years at least). Several sides of my house has steep declining slopes against the house. What is the best method of trenching and applying to account for the slopes. I'm afraid that trenching 10ft then pouring the diluted mixture will run off. Thank you.


You can do the soil drench treatment by digging a 6x6 inch trench around the foundation and pour 2.4 fl oz of Dominion 2L into 4 gallons of water per 10 feet. With the sides of the house with the slope make sure you are doing a backfill method. With the backfill method you want to treat the soil that was removed when digging the trench before placing it back into the trench. If you need any more information about our performing a soil drench treatment you can look on our Termite Treatment guide
