Don writes,

How often through out the summer should I treat my homes outer perimeter with Termidor SC?

I bought Termidor SC from you and what I need to know is this. If I treat the perimeter of my home outside walls ground etc..,and also my wood fences and grass areas how will rain affect this treatment? If its treated for a week and it rains should I retreat areas between rains to keep carpenter ants at bay?


We strongly encourage you to read and follow pages 13-14 of Termidor SC product label which deals specifically with outdoor perimeter applications. According to the product label you are only permitted to apply Termidor two times per year as a perimeter spray. As long as Termidor SC was allowed to dry before you had rain there is no reason to reapply the product as it will not wash away. Also, the product label limits the area that you are allowed to spray to one foot up the foundation of the structure and one foot out onto the ground around the structure. You are not permitted to spray around your fence line or around your yard with this product. In these restricted areas we recommend that you use Advance Carpenter Ant Bait.
