Can I spray Termidor on fascia and exposed wood siding?
I have replaced most of the more damaged fascia, but there are some additional areas that can be repaired with filler. This includes some shiplap wood under eaves. I am in Southern California and my house is mostly stucco, with wood fascia and exposes eaves. Do I need to drill holes in wood or will surface spray be okay?
Termidor is not a wood treatment product and will not penetrate into wood. It is meant to be applied to soil. So spraying Termidor on fascia boards or any other surface will not do much. If you are trying to take care of termites in wood, then you have to drill holes into the wood and inject the Termidor directly. It has to come into contact with the termites in the wood to be effective.
