TIPS TO REDUCE THE RISK OF TERMITES‡
In addition to using this product to spot treat for termites, there are some important steps you can take to reduce the risk of getting termites:
- Eliminate sources of moisture for termites (any areas that remain moist inside and outside the home)
- Remove food sources (any direct wood-to-ground contact, including branches for trees and shrubs)
- Apply a pre-treatment when building a new home
- Have a regular termite inspection
|‡Spectracide Terminate® Termite Killing Foam2 will kill workers and/or winged reproductive forms of termites present at the time of application only. For active structural infestations by subterranean termites, this product can be used only to supplement application of a federally registered stand-alone termiticide. Application of this product will not provide structural protection nor substitute for mechanical alteration or soil or foundation treatment with termiticide. This product is not to be used as sole protection against termites, as it will neither eliminate termite infestations nor provide protection against future infestations. A professional inspection is recommended.
FOR CARPENTER BEES
Treat active tunnels where carpenter bee activity has been observed. Leave the entrance hole open for 48 hours after application to allow the bees to contact and distribute the insecticide throughout the nest galleries. Then plug the entrance hole with a piece of wooden dowel coated with carpenter’s glue or wood putty. Plugging the hole will prevent re-infestation of old nesting tunnels and reduce the chances of wood decay.
