What do I use to treat for termites inside the house and outside the house?

I just found swarmers coming out of my ceiling above the shower. Maybe even soldiers as well. I want to tear into the wall(s) to treat and remove damaged wood as well as the attic, but would like to treat the area(s) prior to disturbing them. What do I use to treat inside the house and outside the house?


We would recommend using Termidor which is one of the best termiticides on the market and is the treatment of choice with professional companies.  For the activity you have inside, you would drill a hole or tear out a piece of sheetrock and treat directly into the wall voide with some Termidor in a one gallon sprayer.  For the outside treatment, you would apply Termidor around the perimeter of the structure according to the guidelines in our "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article.
