Kevin from Redlands, Ca writes,

I have seen a couple of Termite swarmers. Is it time to panic and use Termidor SC?

Killed a couple of "swarmers" in a window sill yesterday, first I've seen of them. Trying not to panic. Haven't done a thorough investigation, but quick glance doesn't turn up any mud tubes, etc. Should I dive into using Termidor SC to treat the perimeter of the house?


There is no need to panic. We would recommend using Termidor which is one of the best termiticides on the market and is the treatment of choice with professional companies.  For the activity you have inside, you would drill a hole or tear out a piece of sheetrock and treat directly into the wall void with some Termidor in a one gallon sprayer.  For the outside treatment, you would apply Termidor around the perimeter of the structure according to the guidelines in our "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article. This is the best way to protect your home.
