Will perimeter treatment using Dominion 2L be sufficient on a paver floor?
I have a shed that has visible termite tubes. The shed has a cement footer around the perimeter but has pavers laid on sand for the interior of the 12x16 shed. My question is "Will perimeter trench treatment using Dominion 2L be sufficient to kill throughout the entire floor"?
The perimeter treatment with Dominion 2L will provide a great barrier treatment. The only concern is that the pavers will give cracks and access areas underneath the shed floor. If by chance the termites are deep in ground they do not come into contact with the Dominion 2L that you use for the barrier treatment, they will still be able to come up through the pavers through cracks and crevices. We recommend drilling into the pavers and pouring the mided solution directly into the holes. This ensures that you reach the soil underneath the floor directly. Come off the interior shed wall 2-3 inches, and drill 18-24" deep holes every 10 -12 inches apart. We recommend doing this in a checkerd board pattern over the entire slab. Mix 3.2 fl.oz / 4 gallons of solution and pour directly into drilled holes (each hole will hold approx 1/2 gallon of solution) You can refer to our article "How to Perform a Termite Treatment"
