I don't know why I did this but instead of dinging the trench up against the foundation, I dug 6" away from it. What are your thoughts? Do i need to re-apply? The one good thing that may make this mistake ok is that the soil here in Florida is basically beach sand.
We hate to be the bearers of bad news but we definitely think you should retreat. With the subterranean termites natural feeding instincts they likely will not surface until they get right up next to the food source, which in this case is your home, which means at this point your home is largely unprotected. Sorry!
