We are planning to get a termidor treatment on our home as a preventative measure. New construction and no evidence of any termites, but we do live in the south so figured it was the prudent thing to do.
Half of our house is surrounded by concrete (driveway and patio). The termite company wants to drill every foot of this to put in termidor. My wife is very concerned about how this will look, i.e. will it stick out like a sore thumb. What are others experiences with this that have large concrete areas?
We are going through quite a rainy season. Should I ask the termite company to do the treatment when it's not expected to rain for a couple of days?
Our basement/crawl space is fully sealed/encapsulated by a thick vapor barrier, and not vented to the outside. The walls are poured concrete foundation, with a few concrete piers in the middle. The entire space is highly visible, full height and well lighted, i.e. Mud tubes would be very easy to detect here, even for me. Since putting in termidor would require puncturing that (rather expensive) vapor barrier, and termite entry would be easy to detect here, does it seem reasonable to only do the termidor treatment I. The outside perimeter?
