My house is on a crawlspace and there is an attached wooden deck that is too low to crawl under to trench.....
How would you treat this area?
If you are lucky enough to have the wood on the deck run parallel to the house, then you can remove 2 runs of wood running against the house, perform the trench and treat method under the porch, and then put back the wood. If your wood decking runs perpendicular from the house, then you don't have many options. You can trench around the perimeter of the deck and then pour some termiticide from the bucket against the house so hopefully most of it is saturated into the ground against the house. This is of course better than not doing anything at all, but you should keep a close eye on the area.
