How long can you keep Termidor SC mixed in a gallon spray container and still be viable?
A friend gave me a sprayer with Termidor SC already mixed up to spray for ants around the base of my house and I haven't used it yet. It has been mixed for about 6 weeks. How long will the solution be viable once mixed with water?
The manufacturer of Termidor SC recommends that you use the diluted solution within 24 hours. The longer the product sits in a solution the less effective it will become. Also, leaving chemicals or even just plain water in a hand pump sprayer can cause the seals and gaskets to breakdown. This will eventually require you to purchase a repair kit for the sprayer or even a whole new sprayer much faster than someone that had properly maintained their sprayer.
