Is it worth to use termidor yourself instead of hiring a company provided you flow all instructions (trench, drill holes ...)

It depends on the extent of the problem your having. If your talking about a massive infestation you may want to let a pro handle it.

I am dealing with this atm also, mine are not subterainian though. Ordered mine this morning and i am going to give it a shot. $140 vs the 3 quotes i got for 200, 450 and 800. The $140 will be enough 3 or 4 treatments a year for two years. My plan is to try it for a year and if i discover new damage i will tent. Not my home, just trying to be a helpful tenant...landlord is not interested in tenting.

$140 was a sprayer + Termidor+a can of foam.

Yeah, I work with a Palm Coast Pest Control Company in Flagler. Termites seem out number anything else at times. Termidor works works here and everywhere.

A non pro can do as good a job as a pro and much better than some of the bozo's in the industry.

If you have the time to research you can do it yourself! JIm

Its a DIY site, why do people keep saying you cannot do it?
