Close Up of drill shank is below. Please make sure your drill uses SDS Plus bits.
1/2 inch and 3/8 inch SDS PLUS hammer drill bits for termite treatments. Hammer drill bits are useful for drilling through concrete slabs when applying liquid termite control products. Drill holes should be placed 3 inches from the house and 10-12 inches apart. Once you have drilled the holes, use a pressurized sprayer to spray the termite chemical under the concrete slab. Holes can be filled with with 1/2 inch Trebor plugs or 3/8 inch Trebor Plugs.
SDS plus SDS plus drill bits have 4 grooves (2 open grooves, 2 closed), and can be used in regular SDS drills or SDS plus drills. The reason that SDS plus drill bits have 4 grooves is to support to extra torque that the SDS plus drill provides. They have a 10mm shank which is inserted 40mm into the chuck. They can be used in SDS hammer drills up to around 4kg in weight.

Very nice well-made drill bit. Made by Sheffield (appears to be made in USA). I drilled 86 holes thru concrete garage floor without issue. I'm glad I choose the 24” bit to provide the extra depth without running the drill chuck into the concrete. Price was cheaper that I could find anywhere in town. Delivery was (3) days.
It is great doing business with you and the hammer drill bit is great. I've done over 150 holes through 4" concrete for termite perimeter treatment and the drill cuts fast and the tip looks like it hasn't been used yet. This bit may last forever! Thanks!
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.
Is the drill bit you have on your website 18" overall including the shank?
I haven't been able to find a drill bit that is 18" in length locally. I don't know what type of hammer drill we have and I'm concerned that the drill bit you have may not fit my drill so I rather purchase one locally but I can't find one that is 18". I find bits that have 16" usable area and 18" overall length including the shank. Is that the same case with the drill bit you you have on your website?
The entire length of the drill bit (including the shank) is 18". We also carry a SDS Hammer Drill Bit that has an overall length of 24" if you need one that is a bit longer. We do recommend that you try to confirm the type of drill you have as these bits will only work in SDS drills or SDS plus drills.
How many inches of garage floor concrete will this SDS Hammer Drill Bit blast?
Have multiple holes to drill and will be using hammer mode most of the time ... can it be re-sharpened as well?
A new SDS Hammer Drill bit can easily drill 100 holes depending on how powerful your drill is. We are not familiar with how successful it is to try to resharpen a drill bit after extensive use. Typically, it is more cost effective to purchase a new one.
After drilling the holes and applying Termidor, should I refill with dirt before plugging with Trebor plugs?
If the dirt does go back in the hole before the Trebor plugs are installed, is it necessary to treat the soil used for the refill by spraying the soil with Termidor?
Generally you do want to treat any soil that you are re-filling your trenches or any hole with; however, it is not necessary to fill your holes up with dirt if you are going to be applying Trebor Plugs.
Can SDS Hammer Drill Bit be used in an SDS hammer drill by Dewalt?
Can I use it in any drill brand or is exclusive for Hilti products? I have a Dewalt drill SDS.
The SDS drill bit that we sell does not have to be used in a Hilti drill, but it does have to be used in a drill that takes SDS Plus bits, which is the kind we carry. On our SDS Drill Bit page if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, there is a close up of the shank and the grooves on it. Your drill has to be capable of accepting this kind of bit.
