Your Q&A for Termidor says it only lasts 6 weeks on wood - How long does Optigard Flex last?


When using Termidor to treat for termites it is meant to go in the ground.  It is not a wood treatment product.  Optigard Flex is an insecticide meant for indoor and outdoor perimeter treatments.  It is also not a wood treatment product.  You would not want to use Optigard Flex for termite or beetle control in wood.  You would want to use a wood treatment product like Bora-Care which stays in the wood forever and is meant to be applied on only wood.  It depends on what you are trying to control as to what product would be best for your needs.
