Hoping to Get a Reply Before I Open Wall...Thanks!
I left a message here very early AM on 6/2, so please excuse this second message so soon!!! I decided to wait to hear from you before I open the wall, but termites are eating my wall up so fast it is scary. I want to make sure my plan is sound. Basically I have active drywood termites in a wall. (They completely destroyed a 6 x 8 solid interior wood wall within a few days, and are still moving! I already have some of your Termidor SC (LIQUID, NOT FOAM). Since I will be taking down the indoor wood wall planks anyway where it is damaged, I thought I could just go ahead and spray the inside wall void directly with my Termidor SC liquid wherever I see the Active termites, tunnels, or other evidence. (I did not see any need to use the FOAM since I am opening my walls.) I am expecting termites to be within a 10 ft long wall area. Once I spray, I wanted to board the wall void area back up with TEMPORARY plywood for about a week just to make sure the termites had time to spread the product. After a week, I would then replace any damaged studs, and walls, and coat new good wood with your Bora Care before closing the walls back up. My feeling is that the Termidor SC liquid would spread throughout the colony perhaps better than the Boracare. This is why I wanted to use that directly on the termites that are already there before spraying the good wood with Boracare. Is my plan sound? Anything else you might suggest? THANKS!
Your plan sounds great! Yes, spot treat with Termidor let that do it's job, then 3 months later replace the wall. If you have more questions, let is know!
