Dave from Lake Havasu City, Az writes,

What is the mixing ratio for active drywood termites and how many sq feet will a 25 gallon sprayer cover?

I have a 25 gal. sprayer, How much Bora- Care will I need to treat active dry-wood termites in my 25 gal. sprayer. How many sq. feet will this cover?


For an active Drywood termite infestation, mix 1 gallon of BoraCare with 1 gallon of water. 

One gallon of Bora-Care will treat approximately 100 lineal feet of 2 x 4 stud wall. Typically, one gallon of concentrate Bora-Care will treat 800 square feet of a 2x4 stud wall, and 500 square feet of a crawl space or attic.

Depending on how big of an area and what specifically you are treating for drywood termites (floors, furniture, crawlspace,etc) will depend on how much BoraCare to use.
