How to do a preventive treatment of Termidor before pouring a slab?

I am building a garage and the footer and the wall are already up. We have placed 2B crushed stone around the wall of the foundation (the initial trench of the footer was filled with stone instead of soil to help water drainage). So if I spray Termidor on the perimeter it will likely penetrate very fast. Is it OK to spray the entire surface before pouring the slab or I should only focus on the inner perimeter.

Answer:

When building a structure you should apply Termidor to the entire area under where you are going to pour the slab.  You should apply Termidor at the rate of 1 gallon per 10 square feet.  You should apply slightly more around the perimeter edges and around any plumbing pipes or expansion joints that will be in the slab.
