Do you have to treat the interior of the garage if there is no activity of subterranean termites in it?
This is in regards to a full treatment at a home structure
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. So it is a personal choice, but drilling the garage walls is the best way to protect all entry points.
