When is the best time to apply Termidor SC for termite or ant control? What about rain?

If I treat the outside of my house in the morning and its supposed to rain that same evening will that change the effectiveness of the Termidor SC? How long in between rains should I wait before applying?


You should not apply Termidor SC if it is going to rain the same day.  It is best to wait until you have a few days of no rain in the forecast so there is at least 24 - 36 hours time after you treat before it rains.  Termidor SC is made to bond to the soil but it needs time to "set" and bond to hold up against a rain event.
