1- Make sure your holes are a min. of 1/4" dia. If you are trying to avoid big holes or furniture- be prepared.
2- Product is like hydraulic fluid- more than what you have with caulk. The product absorbs a LOT of pressure and even if you quickly pull back on the caulk driving rod to release pressure, it will keep going and going and going so make sure you hold the nozzle to the injection hole for a good minute or have a towel or rag instantly ready when you back away from the hole you're injecting into.
3- For same reason in 2, if you put the cap on quickly, the pressure retained will push back on the plug up inside the tube and I've had oozing.
4- I have a stainless steel large marinading-type injector I tried to use, and Jecta is too viscous for that if anyone is thinking of using that (as I did) to get into smaller holes.
5- Have hot water and paper towels ready. As noted in 2 above, if you do have drips, Jecta has a molasses-like consistency and if you get any drips on your walls or furniture, you'll need hot water, not just towels to clean the residue or it will stay sticky.
All in all, it's a great product for it's application, and I actually use it anytime I put up shelves in existing walls (since I have the opportunity) just to share the wealth with any termites I don't know about- have a hole, why not for the sake of prevention. I do like how it is less watery for some applications than diluted BoraCare. Jecta per specs indicate it can spread further in wood than BoraCare's typcial 2-4" penetration- a claim I doubt considering how viscous Jecta is but they must believe it. I do like I don't have to mix anything too- but definitely, you need gloves, towels, and water on hand- it can be a mess.
