Chris from Foley, Alabama writes

Can Bora-Care be used as a stand alone pretreatment for termites in Alabama?

Is a liquid perimeter required as well as the boracare application?


While you can do the Bora-Care on the bottom 2 feet of the studs and sill plates as the walls are built, you should do a perimeter treatment as you mentioned for Subterranean termites. Since Alabama is prone to both Subterranean and Drywood termites, we would recommend trenching around the perimeter with a product like Taurus SC. You may view our Subterranean Termite Treatment Guide for more information about trenching.
