Could spraying Dominion 2L on wood control subterranean termites?

I have subterranean termites in my store, and they are inside a big display wood structure. There's humidity in that areas and I am not able to fix that. Can I spray more than enough Dominion 2L on all the wood to control the subterranean termite infestation? I would have to destroy the whole structure to drill holes on the floor. If I must drill the floor, how much product should go in each hole?

Answer:

Dominion 2L is a great treatment for subterranean termites, but its main purpose is to treat for termites in the ground.  Dominion 2L does not penetrate through wood because it is not made for this purpose.  Since termites eat from the middle of the wood, the only way Dominion 2L would work is if you drilled holes into the display wood structure and injected Dominion 2L exactly where the termites were.  We do sell wood treatment products that will penetrate through the wood by just spraying on the surface, but they will only work on raw, untreated wood.  The wood treatment products would not work on wood that has been painted, stained, or sealed.  Bora-Care is the name of the wood treatment product if you wanted to go that route.
