Termidor/Tarus concentration and depth penetration....
I have a two spots where the termites look like they are entering. I will use either Termidor or Tarus, but there are different concentrations. Is 0.06% ok or better to user higher in those spots. Additionally 4 gal per 10 feet is standard. Should I be decreasing the feet to get product deeper into ground in trouble areas.... If so how much? Lastly ok to use product day after rain
Both Termidor and Taurus would be applied at .8 oz per gallon of water. The 6 inch deep trench is deep enough and there is generally no need to go lower than that. Decreasing the footage the 4 gallons covers does not make the product penetrate deeper as it is going to bind to the soil it is applied to. It is ok to use the product a day after rain but you want to make sure the soil is not too saturated with water from the rain.
