What is the best product to treat the soil under my above ground pool to protect against termites?

We are replacing the pool liner due to termite damage that has cause the liner to leak.


For preventative subterranean termite treatments, Taurus SC is the best product to treat the soil with. For pre-construction applications, Taurus SC is mixed at 0.8 fl oz with 1.5 gallons of water and applied every 10 sq ft. We would also suggest applying a termite trench treatment around the pool perimeter, any piers, wood, decking or blocks that touch the soil. This preventative treatment will last 10 years in the soil to protect against Subterranean Termites. You can view our How to Treat for Termites Guide for step by step instructions on how to perform your own termite treatment.
