What can I use to spot treat termite activity inside a crawl space?
I saw a few swarmers in there. The area gas a concrete slab. It looks as if they are coming in from the edge of the slab, but I am not 100% sure
To treat a concrete slab, you will come 2-3 inches off the wall and drill holes 10-12 inches apart using an 18in-24in drill bit. Using a 5 gallon bucket, mix 4 gallons of mixed solution (.8 fl oz of Termidor SC per gallon of water) and pour the 4 gallons of mixed solution in the drilled holes for 10 linear feet. Usually each hole will take approx 1/2 gallon of solution. It is easier to use a funnel to pour the solution into the holes. If there is a crawl space at any point, dig a 6x6 inch deep trench around any post or cinder blocks in the crawlspace and pour the Termidor SC mixture into that soil.
