We have live drywood termites in our second story floor. Can I squeegee Boracare over whole floor?

Instead of resanding whole floor, wouldn't the Boracare mix seep into the cracks in between the old floor boards? If I needed to resurface I would just replace floor and kill the nest when exposed. Thoughts?

Answer:

In order to get the best results, Bora-Care needs to be applied to raw wood and at least one full side of the wood that needs to be treated in order for it to be absorbed, treat and protect the wood. If it’s just squeezed into the cracks and crevices the treatment will not be effective because most of the solution will be left on the painted/stained wood. If you would like to spot treat, then you can spot treat the areas of activity with Jecta, which is a ready to use form of Bora-Care, but you would have to drill into the wood to make the treatment.
