Termidor SC
  • Alternate Image 1

Termidor SC (the SC stands for Suspended Concentrate) is an excellent professional termite control product for killing termites and protecting your home from future infestations. In addition to its superior protection against termites, Termidor is an excellent do it yourself pest control product to have on hand as it also kills ant colonies, as well as many other insect pests. Termidor will protect your home and eliminate almost any termite problem in less than 90 days. In addition, when used as an in-ground barrier treatment, Termidor will protect your home or business for over 10 years. Termidor is completely undetectable by termites and once termites touch it they contact, ingest and spread the termiticide until it eliminates the entire colony. Termidor controls all types of termites including subterranean, formosan, and drywood termites.

Termidor SC is also one of the best outdoor ant control products that money can buy. An exterior above ground spray one foot up and one foot out is all you need to knock out ant colonies and carpenter ants trying to invade your home!

Want to know how to get rid of crazy rasberry ants or how to treat crazy rasberry ants?  Termidor is the answer for crazy rasberry ant control, as well as all other ant species.

Termidor is labeled for OUTDOOR use only.  It can only be used indoors to spot treat termite or insect activity inside wall voids (for example when treating a live termite infestation in a wall void) .  It cannot be used indoors for ant or pest control other than inside wall voids.

Termidor CANNOT be used on pets for any reason. Termidor SC is not labeled for fire ants and cannot be used out in yards for ant mound control.

Article: How to do a Termite Treatment

How Termidor SC Works

Advanced undetectable technology
Termidor is made from a revolutionary new nonrepellent or "undetectable" chemical technology treatment. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid Termidor. Instead they contact, ingest, and share it with their nestmates. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can find breaks in or avoid completely.

The "Transfer Effect"
Termites who contact Termidor transfer it to every other termite they in turn contact, in a unique process called the "Transfer Effect." And because Termidor is engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire termite population.

Better than bait... without the wait
Baits can take years to control a termite colony. Termidor begins working immediately to wipe out termites inside and immediately surrounding your home. Termidor is the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating termite populations--up to six-times faster than bait.

Termidor for Ant Control:

Chances are that the ants in your house actually have their nest outside where they travel back and forth for food and water. So, since they live outside, it makes sense to control them there. Termidor SC can be applied above ground to the exterior foundation walls of your house, creating a treated area of protection for excellent ant control.

Unlike older insecticides, Termidor can't be smelled, tasted, or even felt by ants. So they crawl through the treated area, not knowing that by ingesting treated materials or merely contacting the insecticide, they'll die.

Termidor is unique because ants not directly exposed to the Termidor-treated area will be controlled as they come into contact with affected ants. This Transfer Effect means you'll see its effects on ants in one to three days, and most species will be controlled within the first week following the treatment.

Termidor for Carpenter Ants

Many people ask us if Termidor SC can be used to treat Carpenter Ants. The answer is yes. Termidor SC is one of the most effective products on the market today for treating Carpenter Ants.

*Termidor SC may take up to 90 days to kill termites depending on the colony size.

Termidor SC Target Pests

Termites, Carpenter Ants, Crazy Ants, Argentine Ants and other ant species including crazy rasberry ants (please see the label).

Target Uses of Termidor SC

Termidor SC is the termiticide most widely used by professional pest control companies. It is also terrific for ant control outdoors around the perimeter of structures. Termidor SC can be used for pre-construction and post-construction termite treatments, for prevention and for active infestations. Termidor SC is also labeled for several other crawling pests as an outdoor perimeter treatment.


Termidor SC Application Instructions

Always read the product label completely before use.

1. For Termite Control: To protect your home from future termite infestations, Termidor must be mixed with water and poured in a 6-inch deep trench that is dug around the foundation of the home. Please read below for more information.

2. For Control of Ants and other Target Pests: Termidor is mixed at a rate of .80 fl oz. to one gallon of water in a pump sprayer and sprayed around the outside foundation of the home. For example, you would spray 1 foot up the foundation of your home, and 1 foot out onto the ground.  The treatment will last about 4-6  months, and will then need to be reapplied.

For Termite Control, each 20 oz. bottle will make 24 gallons of solution and treats 60 lineal feet of trenching. For termite pre-treatment use 1 gallon of finished solution per 10 sq. ft.  For ant and general insect control, each 20 oz. bottle will make about 24 gallons of diluted solution and will treat approximately 16,600 sq. ft. (You will need to use approximately 1.5 gal of diluted solution per 1,000 sq. ft.)

Standard Application Dilution Rates / Mixing Rations for Termidor SC:

*For Termite control mix at a rate of 0.80 fl. oz. for each gallon of water used.

* For ant and general insect control around the exterior of a structure the mix rate is 0.80 fl. oz. per gallon of water.

How much Termidor should I buy?
One 20 oz. bottle of Termidor will make 24 gallons of finished solution and will treat approx. 60 lineal feet around your home for a termite treatment.

Use 4 gallons of finished solution per 10 lineal feet around the house.

Example: A home with 200 lineal feet around the foundation would require 4 bottles of Termidor. Most homes require at least 4 bottles.

Termidor SC is for use in the following areas:

Outside surfaces and along foundation of Residential, institutional, commercial and industrial buildings and utility enclosures; wall voids of listed structures; NOT for indoor use; for pre-construction and post-construction treatment for termites, including concrete structures such as patios, porches, sidewalks and foundation slabs; concrete slab (including monolithic, floating and supported concrete slabs) on ground or in basements; hollow block foundations or voids in masonry; structures with French drains and sump pumps; basement structures; crawl spaces; around bath traps and shower drains; posts, poles, and wood landscape ornamentation


*Termidor SC is for Outdoor use only. Indoor spraying is limited to spot treatments for live termite infestations. The product cannot be used indoors for ant or pest control.


Termite Control – See How to Do a Termite Treatment

Termidor is most often used as an in-ground treatment, where it is mixed and then poured in a trench around a house to create a barrier against future termite infestations. However, the product can also be applied to live termite infestations as a liquid spray, liquid dilution or as a foam application. Please see the label for detailed use instructions.

A professional company that would come and treat your house with Termidor would usually have either a 50 gallon or 100 gallon spray rig on the back of their truck, with a hammer drill for drilling holes in your garage concrete slab, if you have one, and slabs around your house like porches and patios. Commercial rental places, such as United Rentals, may have these products.

Most homeowners that apply Termidor themselves use a 5 gallon bucket. It takes longer, because you can only mix 5 gallons at a time, but it gets the job done. You should apply 4 gallons of Termidor every 10 lineal feet around the foundation of your home. Homeowners can estimate 4 gallons by using a 5 gallon bucket and only filling the bucket most of the way full. You will need to dig a small trench against the foundation of the home about 6 inches deep and 6 inches wide, into which you will pour the finished solution and mix it with the soil. It is also important to treat the backfill, which is the dirt that you took out of the trench laying next to it. If you just put this dirt back untreated, the termites could go through this untreated section and not be affected. You should either push the dirt back in right away to mix with the 4 gallons you put in the trench, or take a one gallon sprayer and soak the backfill dirt down before pushing it back in the trench. This will create a termite-proof barrier around your home that will last up to 10 years. Please read the label carefully when applying Termidor as it will give more detailed instructions and precautions.

    5 of 5 stars  The Writing on the Wall
    By Greg in Omaha, NE on 01/31/2010
    Verified Purchase

    As a termite sales representative for a major pest control company I saw the “writing on the wall” several years ago when Termidor first became available. Why would someone pay thousands of dollars for a termite treatment and hundreds of dollars every year to maintain a guarantee when a product so easy to use and so effective was available. Two years ago, after leaving the Company, I discovered that my house was re-infested with termites. I spot treated the area where I found the termites with Termidor purchased from Do My Own Pest Control and I placed some wood monitors in the area a few weeks later; they took no hits. This past Summer I noticed some damage on my siding and as I continued to pull off pieces I found a lot of termite damage, but no termites. Termidor works because the treatment does not have to be perfect. Get some in the area where they are active and they will carry it back to the colony. There is no need to pay for costly drilling inside your home anymore.

    5 of 5 stars  Knocked out my ant problem!
    By Charles on 08/29/2008

    First, I was impressed with just the bottle. Termidor SC is designed so you can pour exactly the right amount of mix with no trouble. Second, I have had a chronic carpenter ant problem for years. It costs a minimum of $200 for a professional to do 1 treatment, or $350 for a year. For about $70 total and 20 minutes of my time, I knocked out the ant problem. I have enough left over for at least three years. All the ants running up and down and inside my house walls disappeared in a couple of hours. There are dead ants everywhere outdoors, with a couple staggering around in circles.

    5 of 5 stars  Termites Eating My Pool Liner.... NO MORE!
    By Chip in Pittsburgh, PA on 09/21/2009

    I couldn't figure out why my above ground pool was losing water. I hired a professional "leak buster" outfit to help me find the source. It turned out there wasn't one hole in my liner, there were thousands of tiny holes caused by moisture seeking subterranean termites! I tried treating the issue myself with some Home Depot bait stakes. That liner lasted 1 season before the pool started losing water again. I somehow found this site and started to research this Termidor stuff. I bought a jug and a pump sprayer. Since the lining needed replaced (again) I got all set up. When the old lining was removed, I soaked the sand base with my sprayer filled with the Termidor solution. I replaced the liner. Then, I sprayed the outside base of the pool and let the solution roll down the sides through the gravel. Since I had about 12 bait stake holes, I pumped them full of the diluted solution as well. I used the entire bottle on my pool. It's been two full seasons since I treated with Termidor and needless to say, I am thrilled. Not even a hint of termites! If I were to ever install a pool again, I would treat with Termidor as a preventative measure. I had no idea termites hunted for water in swimming pools. I highly recommend this product and this website!

    5 of 5 stars  I am sold!
    By Myron on 09/03/2008

    An excellent product. I do maintenance for our church and school and use Termidor SC for ant control. I was spraying or using granules every week. This product has sold me on a true ant control product that you only have to use every once in awhile. This product will save you money because of time and labor involved in normal products.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Crazy ants
    By James in Gonzales, Texas on 09/16/2016

    I had a bad infestation of ants on the outside and inside of my home. I tried several different products for ants that you could buy at your local box store. None of them had any affect on the ants. I had some Tempo SC that I use for scorpions and sprayed with that. The next morning my porch was covered in dead ants and thought I had won that war. In a couple of days the ants were back on the house and invading the weep holes. About two weeks ago I order Termidor SC, mixed up two gallons of solution and sprayed the base of my house . As of today I still have a few dead on my porch but don't see any crowing on my house and none in the house. I have already recommended Termidor SC and where they can get it to several people with the same problem with ants that I had.

QIs there a difference between Termidor and Termidor SC?
Is there a difference between Termidor and Termidor SC? Is the Termidor only for licensed professionals? Is it stronger?


Termidor and Termidor SC are the same product, its just that no one ever says the SC part. SC stands for suspended concentrate. This is the same product the professionals use. The only difference is that licensed professionals can buy this product in larger bottles.† Termidor is made in a larger 78 oz bottle, but it can only be sold to homeowners in the 20 oz bottle.

QWhat is the shelf life of Termidor SC?


Termidor SC has approximately a 5 year shelf life when kept out of direct sunlight and out of extreme temperatures. However, once placed in the ground around a home, Termidor SC will last almost 10 years or longer.

QWhat is the difference between Termidor 80 WG and Termidor SC?

ABoth Termidor 80 WG and Termidor SC when mixed with water, make the same type of solution.  The "WG" in Termidor 80 WG stand for wettable granule.  The "SC" in Termidor SC stands for suspended concentrate.  They are just different formulations of the same product.  The Termidor 80 WG is easier for professional termite control operators to carry in their trucks, and it is easier to mix.  However, Termidor 80 WG cannot be sold to homeowners, it can only be sold to licensed professionals.  Only the Termidor SC in the 20 oz bottle can be sold to homeowners for personal use.

QCan Termidor SC be applied to the surface only with no trench?
If a trench is needed, how deep does it need to be?

ATermidor SC can only be applied to the top of the soil when you are using it as a perimeter pest control treatment against ants.  If you are using Termidor SC to treat for active termites, or to protect your home against termites, you must apply the product into a trench.  This is because termites do not walk across the ground like ants do, they live beneath the soil and enter your home below the grade level of the dirt.  Therefore, you must place the Termidor SC into the ground to have a chance at them coming into contact with the product.  Please read our informational article written for homeowners:  "How To Do a Termite Treatment" which will tell you how deep to dig the trench and how to properly apply Termidor around your home.

QDoes the time of year or temperature of ground change the effectiveness of Termidor? I live in Texas w/ 96+ temp and currently in a drought condition. Should I wait for spring or fall to apply?


When it comes to termites, you should never wait.† Especially if you are worried about activity.† The dryer the soil the better for Termidor SC.† Termidor SC is made to bond to the soil, and the less moisture in the ground, the easier it is for it to take hold and provide long lasting protection.† The only temperature that effects Termidor SC is when it is below freezing.† Termidor SC should not be applied if the ground is below freezing, or it will not take hold.† The 96 degrees will effect you, but not the Termidor SC.† Drink LOTS of Water!

QWhat are your thoughts on mixing Suspend Polyzone with Termidor SC?
Suggested by a co-worker I'm guessing they figure a GREAT knockdown for roaches and GREAT for ants all in one..just wondering thank you!


There is no reason for Suspend Polyzone†and Termidor SC to be mixed together. †Suspend Polyzone†will not provide a quick knockdown and is considered a repellent type product. †If you are having problems with an insect like ants/roaches outside†that you need a transfer effect for, you could use the Termidor twice a year around the foundation of your home 2 feet up and 2 feet out. After 30 to 60 days after spraying the Termidor, you could do remedial sprays with†Suspend†in between to keep insects at bay and out in areas of the yard where the Termidor can not be used. Or, if you are not having a heavy infestation of an insect that would need the transfer of Termidor, you should only use†Suspend Polyzone†to treat your home and your lawn. You never want to spray the two in the same area or at the same time as the Suspend will take away from the non-repellancy and transfer effect of the Termidor which is what it is used for. †Another option is to use the Termidor SC outside (as it cannot be applied inside) and the Suspend Polyzone inside in cracks and crevices.

Is it possible to use a shovel to force the soil away from the foundation by wedging a shovel in between to create a gap, and then pouring the mixed Termidor SC solution into the gap instead of creating a trench? Once soaked in, pressing the soil back against the foundation?

QDoes Termidor SC work in sandy soil applications with the trenching method?
The sandy soil in my area Of Florida is hydrophobic and does not absorb water or chemicals. Will one of the two foaming agents that you sell for use with Termidor SC Act as a surfactant or wetting agent? Will either of these two foaming Products disrupt the non repellent nature of the Termidor? Or is there another wetting agent that you would recommend?


Termidor SC has soil binding molecules in it that will allow it to bind to any soil regardless of the density. It is not labeled to be used with a foaming agent in the trenching method.

QWhen using one of the two foaming agents that you sell along with Termidor SC, how is the foam generated?
Is the foam generated by the chemical activity of the foaming agent when mixed with water or Termidor SC? Or is the foam generated by the activity of the pump up foamsprayer and it's nozzle?


When applying Termidor SC as a foam, it is both the chemistry of the foaming agent and the pressurized application from the foaming equipment that generate the foam, so we must have both of these components to create a foam from a liquid†insecticide concentrate.

QI have a 30 foot white pine tree that has fallen in a wind storm. When I went to remove it I found the base and stump are infested with termites
When I went to remove it I found the base and stump are infested with termites. How should I treat this stump to kill the colony and avoid spreading to nearby trees. This is a tree lined property line of more than 30 trees.


Termidor SC cannot be used in tree stumps but you could use another product called Dominion 2L. †You can drill into the stump and then inject Dominion 2L into the stump where the termites actively are using a hand pump sprayer. You can also choose to trench around the stump and apply the product to the trench. Dominion will help to eliminate the colony below ground as well as those in the stump. †Termites do not attack live, healthy trees so there is nothing that you can really do to protect the any nearby trees. †They are natures recyclers so they go after dead/decaying wood more. †

QShould you apply Termidor to your house if you have a water well 10 feet away?
Was told that it could contaminate our water be leaching into the ground.


Termidor SC is not known to leech through the soil. You will need to follow the Termidor SC†product label†which has specific instructions for treating near a well to avoid any contamination issues:

TREATMENT AROUND WELLS OR CISTERNS: Do not contaminate wells or cisterns.
Structures With Wells/Cisterns Inside Foundations: Structures that contain wells or cisterns within the foundation of a structure can only be treated using the following techniques:
1. Do not apply within 5 feet of any well or cistern by rodding and/or trenching or by the backfill method. Treat soil between 5 and 10 feet from the well or cistern by the backfill method only. Treatment of soil adjacent to water pipes within 3 feet of grade should only be done by the backfill method.
a) Trench and remove soil to be treated onto heavy plastic sheeting or similar material or into a wheelbarrow.
b) Treat the soil at the rate of 4 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet per foot of depth of the trench, or 1 gallon per 1.0 cubic feet of soil. Mix thoroughly into the soil taking care to contain the liquid and prevent runoff or spillage.
c) After the treated soil has absorbed the solution, replace the soil into the trench.
Structures With Adjacent Wells/Cisterns and/or Other Water Bodies: Applicators must inspect all structures with nearby water sources such as wells, cisterns, surface ponds, streams, and other bodies of water and evaluate, at a minimum, the treatment recommendations listed below prior to making an application.

1. Prior to treatment, if feasible, expose the water pipes) coming from the well to the structure, if the pipes) enter the structure within 3 feet of grade.
2. Prior to treatment applicators are advised to take precautions to limit the risk of applying the termiticide into subsurface drains that could empty into any bodies of water. These precautions include evaluating whether application of the termiticide to the top of the footer may result in contamination of the subsurface drain. Factors such as depth to the drain system and soil type and degree of compaction should be taken into account in determining the depth of treatment.
3. When appropriate (i.e., on the water side of the structure), the treated backfill technique (described above) can also be used to minimize off-site movement of termiticide.

QWhat is an equivalent to Termidor SC that can be shipped to New York State?
I am looking for the best pesticide for spraying around the perimeter of the house to eliminate ants in upstate NY.


Unfortunately, there really is not a product that has the same active ingredient as†Termidor SC for ant control that we are able to ship to New York.† An excellent non-repellent insecticide for ant control in New York is Arilon Insecticide.
