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.
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.
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.

Termites, Carpenter Ants, Crazy Ants, Argentine Ants and other ant species including crazy rasberry ants (please see the label). Also labeled as an outside perimeter pest control treatment only for the following pests: Asian Beetles, Boxelder Bugs, Pill Bugs, Centipedes, Cockroaches (Australian, Oriental, Smokey Brown), Crickets, Earwigs, Cluster Flies, Millipedes, Silverfish, Spiders, Brown Dog Ticks, Paper Wasps, and Yellow Jackets. Note: Termidor is not a knockdown product for wasps and yellow jackets.

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.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Fipronil 9.1%
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.

The Writing on the Wall
By Greg in Omaha, NE on January 31, 2010
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.

Knocked out my ant problem!
By Charles on August 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.

I am sold!
By Myron on September 3, 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.

Termites Eating My Pool Liner.... NO MORE!
By Chip in Pittsburgh, PA on September 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!
By Steve in Mooresville, NC on February 12, 2015
This product works great for getting rid of in-house & yard ants. Far exceeds other products I have used. Used the stuff along the outside of the house to rid in-house ants. Used outside hear ant hills to get rid of yard ants. Quickly eliminates the problem.
By John in Kenner, LA on January 21, 2015
I mixed it at maximum strength because I already had a good sized colony of termites at a building I just bought. I trenched back with shovel and sprayed then trench, then backfilled the dirt and sprayed the top dirt as instructed. I came back 1 week later cannot find any of the termites in the nest that had about 100 termites in the dirt just days before. I finally think I have them under control now. I used a garden 2gallon pump sprayer and wore disposable nitrile gloves just to be safe. Overall I am pleased with the product and the little bottle goes a long away. I bought two since I own 3 buildings that need treatment and this should be plenty.

Best ant eliminator I've ever seen! I've bought this product several times in the past and I am completely happy with it. It lasts about 4 months and then its time for a new application. It is definitely worth the price.

August 6, 2009 Jim asked:
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?
ATermidor 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 78oz bottle, but it can only be sold to homeowners in the 20 oz bottle.
July 27, 2009 Philip asked:
QWhat is the shelf life of Termidor SC?
ATermidor 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.
August 27, 2009 Ric asked:
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.
August 27, 2009 Walden asked:
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.
August 6, 2009 Jim asked:
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?
AWhen 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!
February 22, 2015
John from Silver Spring Md 20904 asked:
QWhat is your best selling product for killing ants?
A We would really like to know what type ants you are needing to treat? We recommend you use a product called Termidor SC around the exterior of your home. Termidor is the # 1 choice for ant control around the home. Termidor is a non-repellent insecticide that works with a delayed reaction amd also has a transfer effect. That means that ants cannot tell that the Termidor is there and will walk right over it and then pick the product up on their bodies and inadvertently carry it back to the colony, then through normal social interaction the ants spread the Termidor and wipe out the colony. Termidor only needs to be applied two times per year and is effective for a wide variety of insects including ants, centipedes, roaches, spiders, silverfish, wasps and many other nuisance insects. You will need to apply Termidor SC 1-2 ft up the foundation and 1-2 ft out onto the ground, around door frames, window frames, places where cables, pipes or wires go through the wall and any other crack or crevice where the ants can gain entry into your home.
February 17, 2015
QWhat temperatures for outside trench application for termites
A When it comes to termites, you should never wait as there is never a best time. Especially if you are worried about activity. Having said that the dryer the soil the better for Termidor SC when you are using it as a prevention in a trench around the perimeter of the home. 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. We recommend reading our 'How to Perform A Termite Treatment'article. It offers information on application, tools needed, product recommendations and other instructions.

Sandy from Glendale asked:
QTermidor bubbling my concrete
I had my home treated for termites and on my colored concrete is a white patchy substance that is eating my concrete. What can I use to remove that if it is indeed from the treatment. It gets this weird white stuff almost like snow on it?
A We apologize but we have never heard of Termidor bubbling concrete or any other surface or causing any sort of discoloration. We would suggest contacting the manufacturer of Termidor directly at 800-669-2273 or the company who installed your colored concrete to find out what kind of chemicals it may have to cause a reaction with other items.
February 2, 2015
Audrey from Dallas,texas asked:
QAnts coming in from outside?
A Do you know the exact species? There are no known resistance species of ant to Termidor so it would work to kill any ant colony. However, Termidor can not be used in any indoor space unless you are doing a direct spot treatment in a regularly unaccessible area on the whole colony. If you see an area they are trailing you could try either Termidor Foam to use in the galleries you think they are hiding in as this form of termidor has a broader label in where it can be used; or you can try the Complete Ant Kit and use a bait that they would take back to feed to the colony. You will want to check around your home for where the ants could have come in to either seal off these areas or cut back any bushes and trees that touch the home and use a general barrier spray regularly to keep them away in the future. Talstar would be a great easy to use and safe option for a barrier spray.

O. from Long Beach, Ca asked:
QI have termites inside my 32' sailboat, can I apply Termidor and how?
Termites are eating the inside wood of my boat.
Termidor SC is really designed to be used outdoors. Boracare would be best. The interior wood pieces that are exposed will have to be stripped prior to the application if they are painted or stained. The manufacturer has told us that Boracare is not corrosive and it should not harm the interior of the fiberglass that touches the wood. For more information you may want to contact Nisus directly by calling 800-264-0870

Qif im using termidor sc in my tank and want to use termidor 80 WG later do i need to clean and purge my tank?
I know they make the same chemical solution when mixed with water. But I know the 80 WG bonds better to surfaces and don't want to dilute the chemical.
A We would recommend cleaning out your tank fully after using any type of insectide. This will prevent it from clogging and the parts wearing out.

David from Gloversville, Ny asked:
QAdvantage = fipronil +imadocloprid. Is this true?
I read in our local paper that Advantage flea products are made with fipronil and imadocloprid. The author bought a gallon of each from you and mixed it according to instructions supplied with the product. If this is all true I am very interested in doing the same thing for my pets. I have two small dogs and four cats.
A We apologize but none of the products we carry with those active ingredients are labeled to be used to make your own flea products. We have actually been in touch with that website to have our information removed from their site as it is very misleading. Products must be used following the instructions on the product labels. We do carry several products for use on pets for fleas though and they can be found here.

Jeff from Snellville, Ga asked:
QHow to treat home with full basement, brick siding, and hollow block wall with solid cap?
One side of basement hollow block wall is almost completely under ground (7 feet). Brick does not go underground on that side but does on the other sides. Half of the basement is finished so there is no access to the hollow block walls in that section which includes half the wall that is almost completely underground. My house was built in 1982 and at some point block walls were drilled as was the attached garage slab. I have owned for 20 years. What should my trench goal be? Should I be concerned with creating a 1-foot deep barrier or do I attempt to reach the footing 7 feet below the surface? The finished portion of basement has drop tile ceiling and every year I inspect and find no termite evidence. But we do have termites in wood pile which is 60 feet from house.
A First, please review our Barrier treatment article. You still want to trench 6inx6in all the around the perimeter. You do not have to reach the footer. In places you cannot trench you would drill every 12 in using a 18 in long 1/2 inch wide drill bit. It is fantastic that you keep up with your inspections. Unfortunantly, many areas of the U.S. are prone to termites. It is very common to find termites out in the yard. The best way to protect your home from termites would be with this barrier treatment using Termidor SC. Once in the soil Termidor will bind with it and last up to 10 years. Each 20 oz bottle will give you 60 feet of trenching.

Tania from Nebraska asked:
QWhen is it safe for children to be around when using Termidor inside?
We are drilling holes inside our house on the concrete slab and using Termidor. Is it safe for children to be around, or how long before it is safe for them?
A No, we would NOT recommend using Termidor SC when children are around. Once the product is dry, it is safe for your children to return to the area. Termidor SC normally dries within a matter of hours depending on the temperatures outdoors.
