Can I apply termidor to all sides but the garage slab?
I want to apply termidor to my house, but I don't want to drill the holes on the concrete slab of the garage. Will termidor be as effective if I just dig a trench and apply termidor to all 4 sides of my house except the concrete slab? or can I just continue the trench around the sides of the concrete slab?
You can do that if you choose, but it is not as effective as drilling the slab inside the garage. This is because the garage is a separately poured slab, meaning the termites could come from deep underground and come up to the surface under the garage slab, and enter the wall where your door is going into the house untouched. You don't have to drill every wall in the garage, just the walls that are not exterior walls, where you have living space on the other side of the garage wall and apply Termidor. So it is a personal choice, but drilling the garage walls is the best way to protect all entry points.
