I have 14 X 20 foot shed. It is 8 inches off the ground. What is the best way to treat for termitestermites....
How should I apply the treatment for termites. They were in some scrap wood stored under the shed. I have removed the wood.
You should perform a liquid termite treatment in the ground to get the termites where they are entering the shed. To perform a treatment just as a professional company would do, please read our How To Do A Termite Treatment Article which explains exactly how you should treat your home properly. Doing a treatment like what is described in the article will not only take care of existing termites that you have, but it will also protect and prevent future termites from entering for about 7 years. Even though the article talks about a home, the shed is no different. You should dig a trench around the structure as described in the article below, as well as try to trench around individual supports under the shed if possible, if any exist.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
