How do I treat wood with Bora-Care that is underneath drywall where I see breakout points?

I've been told I have drywood termites, but there is not much exposed wood (it's mostly covered by drywall). How can I treat this?


The only way to get Bora-Care into the wood is to either tear off the sheet rock or drill holes through the drywall into the wood directly. When drilling holes into a stud, you have to drill them every 6 inches apart and drill the hole into the center of the wood at a downward angle so when you fill the hole with Bora-Care it does not run out.  The wood will soak up the Bora-Care once you inject it.  The key to treating drywood termites is that you have to get the product into the void exactly where the termites are.
