A termiticide made up of granules, BioAdvanced Termite Killer is an effective, easy-to-use termiticide. Sprinkle the granules around the home’s perimeter, then water once they’re moist. When the moisture is present, the termite granules will disintegrate, releasing the active ingredient into layers of soil where termite foraging activity happens.
The active ingredient in BioAdvanced Granules is imidacloprid, which kills termites that come into contact with the insecticide. Its active ingredient, imidacloprid, works exactly like fipronil, killing insects by disrupting communication in their central nervous system, but it is less harmful to humans and pets. Unfortunately, this termite treatment must be used outside due to the method of activation, but it is a reliable choice as a protective barrier around the perimeter of a house.
Termites will be dead in a week after a single application. However, note that this is not a repellent. New termites will move in as the band of granules lose their effect. Although it won’t get rid of termites inside your home, it’s still one of the effective termite treatments to use when faced with an advanced infestation.

This product comes packaged ready-to-use with a built-in shaker applicator that uniformly distributes the granules within a recommended band of 6 inches wide. Dosing is handled easily. You may also use a spray form hose to water granules into the ground.
How To Use
To use, open the container and sprinkle the granules on the ground (bare soil, mulched areas, landscape beds, wood piles, or turfgrass) directly adjacent to the structure’s foundation. A band of sprinkled granules six inches wide should be placed around the wooden structure that will be treated. At the moment of application, water until the treatment is moist, but not runny.
The treatment coverage area for foundations is over 100 – 200 linear feet with the recommended 6-inch wide band. Around 1 cup granules per 5 – 10 linear feet is sufficient. For treating wooden posts and poles, 1.5 – 3 tablespoons of the product can be used for each linear foot.
Where To Use
Apply the product as crack and crevice and spot treatments to areas that surround the building structures that are prone to termite attacks. These would be in hidden places around sinks, storage areas, behind baseboards, around doors and windows, and similar areas. This package will treat the perimeter of a typical home (200 linear feet).
When To Use
Use as perimeter band applications upon the presence of termites and a preventive measure against termite infestations. It’s recommended to opt for liquid treatments and other termite treatment methods for more severe infestations.

Are children and pets safe from this product?
Make sure the insecticide is not placed near where animals could eat it. Please keep pets and children away for 24 hours.
Can you apply a product right after rain or before?

Nine pounds of termite killing granules are contained within the BioAdvanced Termite Killer. With its heavy and industrial action, it is applied to large places like buildings, fence posts, and wooden constructions which are susceptible to termite activity and the spread of other unwanted pests. The built-in spout with a 6-inch band makes it easier to apply it to affected areas. Moreover, the Bayer DIY Termite killer has been proven effective against Subterranean termites which is a rather strong species of termite.
Despite its strength, this particular chemical is easy to use at home and is a safe soil treatment method. To do this, you have to make sure that the band is at least 6 inches wide around the area that you are planning to treat. The area needs to be moisturized just right, but not too moist that water begins to run off. Getting maximum results requires not disrupting the treated soil. Because this product is formulated to take care of Subterranean termites, Bayer Advanced Termite Killer Granules is known to be one of the most reliable and popular termite killers in the market.
