Termites in a Fence

I have found that termites have just begun infesting my fence. Is this the correct product for treatment? I have seen that it should be applied around the foundation, however my fence is about 50 feet from my house.


Taurus SC is NOT labeled to be used around fences. You can drill into the fence, but you would need to know exactly where the termites are. For fences, we would recommend a product called Bora-Care. Apply only to bare wood or to wood surfaces where an intact water repellent or finish is not present. Remove paint or finish prior to application. Apply one coat of solution to all wood surfaces. Apply two coats to heavily infested areas and to those surfaces where access is limited to 1 or 2 sides of wood members. For an active infestation, you will use 1 gallon of Bora-Care to 1 gallon of water.
