How would I apply Bora-Care to a localized wood termite infestation under exterior stucco?
The wood above a window is infested (droppings are visible on the interior sill). We can't go through the inside because the wall is covered with rock so need to go through the exterior stucco. How much would I need to use and how would I inject it?
The only way to get the Bora-Care into the area where the termites are would be to drill holes through the stucco into the studs or through the window trim. We suspect maybe they are in the window trim based on your description. Since Bora-Care can only be applied to wood that is not painted, stained, or sealed, you have to drill a hole into the center of the window trim and inject Bora-Care by using a sprayer or some other method that might be available to you to get the product through the drill hole. Or you can remove the wood or stucco to get into the interior of the wall, but this is usually not a feasible step in the process.
