ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Termidor termiticide/insecticide has a new label with updated use directions for general pest control.

“Termidor is a more inclusive pest control product than ever before,” said Dr. Bob Davis, market development specialist for BASF. “The new label directions provide pest management professionals with more specific guidance on using Termidor SC termiticide/insecticide and Termidor WG termiticide/insecticide for general pest control.”

The new Termidor label separates “outside surfaces” from “foundation perimeter,” with a listing of structures that includes residential, institutional, commercial and industrial buildings and utility enclosures.

“The improvement to the label directions adds clarity to treatment of structures beyond the one-foot up and one-foot out from the foundation treatments,” Davis said.

Apply 0.06% Termidor SC or WG finished dilution where listed pests enter the structure, where they trail or crawl and hide or where their nests are found. Treat using a low-pressure coarse banded pressure spray up to 18 inches in width around doors, windows, vents, pipes, or any other exterior openings and/or with a Crack and Crevice injection tip into foundation cracks or drilled holes where listed pests could enter the structure. Be especially careful to treat the joint where exterior siding (wood, vinyl, aluminum or any similar material) meets the cement, block or brick foundation. Treat areas where any wires (electrical, telephone or cable) enter the house. The new Termidor label also allows for foam applications into wall voids for general pest control.

Termidor SC and WG kills and provides residual control of the following ants: acrobat, Argentine, big-headed, carpenter, crazy, odorous, pavement, pharaoh and thief. Termidor also kills the following pests: beetles (Asian lady, darkling); bugs (boxelder, pill); centipedes; cockroaches (Australian, Oriental, smokey brown); crickets (house); earwigs  (European); flies (cluster); millipedes; silverfish; spiders (black widow, brown recluse, cellar and hobo); ticks (brown and dog); wasps (paper* and yellow jackets).

* Termidor is not a knockdown agent.
