I will be pouring a post tension slab with piers and beams and want to pre treat for termites. Where should I apply the Termidor SC? I'm thinking around all the plumbing penetrations & the 2' deep exterior footer. Before the concrete is poured a plastic sheeting will be put down, do you apply the Termidor before the plastic is put down or can you apply it on top of the plastic?
Termidor SC should be applied directly to the soil. It is recommended that you treat around each pier. You will mix at a rate of .80 fl oz. for each gallon of water used. Each 20 oz bottle will make 25 gallons of solution and treats 60 lineal feet of trenching. You could also treat the wood directly with Boracare. You will use a 5:1 ratio. This will last for the life of the wood. We would also recommend that you check out our Termite Guide. It has very useful information and tips on how to treat and prevent termites.
