Can I pre-treat a new house for termites and spiders with Termidor SC?
If you want to pre-treat before the slab is pured to control termites, Termidor SC
would be the product of choice. Pre-slab and barrier treatments can last for up to 10 years for subterranean termite control. For general pest control around the inside of and the outside of the house can be done with Talstar P
. It is widely used by pest control companies because it is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets. It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer
. It will last for approximately 30 days outside in between treatments. It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and can be used on trees, plants, bushes and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests including Japanese beetles, mosquitoes, and other leaf eating pests.
