How come I cannot get enough termiticide into the drill holes?
I used a pressurized pump to pour termiticide in the drill holes, but the holes filled all the time real quickly with not enough product in the hole. I used a tank sprayer to apply the product, but it takes a long time. Any solution to this?
Typically, most termite companies run into the same problem. Most drill holes will fill rather quickly. The only solution is to drill a deeper hole, or what most companies do is just fill the holes multiple times. Fill them till they top off, let them sit for a few hours and let the ground soak up the termiticide, then fill again and repeat the process. Do this 3 or 4 times and then cap the holes off and be done with them. Most companies do not even take the time to do this, so if you fill the holes 3 or 4 times you will be doing more than most professional companies.
