I noticed a termite line in between windows of a home. Is Termidor SC a good product to treat this?

It is on the interior of the home where I noticed the lines that look very similar to ant beds. My husband and I own our own business remodeling foreclosed homes and I've seen numerous amount of termites and termite indications before to know what it is. However when I told my grandfather that is what it was and to call a pest control company. The pest control company after looking for maybe 5 minutes on a nearly 2500 sq ft house determined he didn't see any termites and there was no need for worry. However I pointed out to him the spot I first noticed and it's when he said oh this gives me concern and then wanted to have my grandpa pay 1500.00 for a treatment. I said NO! My grandfather assumes I talked the man into saying he has them however I'm positive it is what I saw. So, he's wanting to do a self treatment however we are not sure which product to use considering we are not sure which type of termites he has. Termidor SC or Domininon 2L....please give me your suggestions so we can go from here and purchase. THANKS in advance for your much needed expertise in this matter.

Answer:

Termidor SC and Dominion 2L are both great options for termite treatments. The main difference between them is that Termidor SC can last up to 10 years in the soil, while Dominion 2L lasts about 5 years. You will still dig a 6 by 6 inch trench around the structure you are treating. You will pour 4 gallons of solution per 10 lineal feet. Also, make sure that you treat the dirt that you dug up as well.
