I had made an earlier post regarding termite
found some buggers in the soil near the window
sill where the wings were found.
however, the termite company wants to treat the
area there by drilling into the poured concrete
foundation of the crawlspace, and injecting the
dude insists he's done hundreds this way.
my problem with this is, what is the purpose of
drilling a hole into the crawlspace ???? (you'd
end up spraying the agent onto the interior of
the other possibility is he wants to drill into
the space between the brick veneer and the wall.
problem there is, the wall between the brick
veneer is CDX plyscore, covered with Tyvek ..
and underneath the plyscore it's stuffed with
fiberglass R-19 mats.
so does anyone else see a problem with punching
a hole into a vapor barrier and injecting Termidor
into fiberglass mats ??????
I am NOT going to allow it (compromise the integrity
of the plyscore/Tyvek and leave a quarter sized hole
My idea was to use the "weep" hole in the brick veneer
near the bottom of the window sill, to permit the applicator
nozzle to spray in the space between the Tyvek and the
rear of the brick veneer.
does anyone see anything wrong with this approach?
(this is all in addition to the customary trenching
around the perimeter of the foundation and pouring the
Termidor treatment into the soil).
