House is on slab with attached garage. Also wondering about wood deck directly up against house. Do I treat around deck or have to remove boards up against house so I can treat soil directly against concrete slab?
The goal is to treat against the foundation around the entire house. So yes, you should drill the slab in the garage just as if it was a patio slab up against the foundation. Also, if you are lucky enough to have the boards on your deck running parallel to the house, then you should remove the first 2 or 3 runs so you can trench the ground beneath the deck up against the house. This does mean a little extra work, but it is the right way to treat your home for termites. Termidor would be a great product to apply.
