My mother in law has two stained/painted cabinets that we have seen wings in. We live in Florida. I'm uncertain as to what type of termite this is and as to what method we should use. If I spray Boracare onto the two cabinets will it soak into the wood? The top and back of the cabinets are not painted/stained.
Bora-Care will penetrate through the wood and kill any insect eating the wood no matter where they are in the wood. However, it can only be applied to raw wood so you would need to apply it to the side that is not painted. It cannot be applied to wood that is painted, stained, or sealed. If your wood is painted, stained, or sealed, then you will need to drill holes and inject Bora-Care or sand the finish off of the wood, treat with Bora-Care, and then refinish the wood
