What do you recommend for a drywood termite infestation on a beam in the garage?

After inspections by three different companies all have found signs of infestation only in this location, but two of them recommend fumigation, one will do spot treatment with Termidor for a lot of money. What method do you recommend for DIY?

Answer:

If this is the only area, then Termidor would be a great choice.  Termidor does not penetrate through wood, so you cannot just apply it on the wood.  The trick is you have to drill holes into the center of the wood and inject it so it touches the termites.  As long as it only touches a few termites it will work.  You will only use a small amount of the Termidor, which is a concentrate, but the product will last for 5 years on the shelf and is also the best product for treating ants around your home as well.
