I'm sorry to say this and mean no dis respect...you had better find some one who knows what they are talking about. Sure sevin will destroy termites that come across it. Then remaining termites will warn others to stay away from that area. Understand, termites live in subterranean colonies that can be very deep, many old mine shafts are homes for them. They go up to get wood (cellulose) and bring them back to feed lava that is constantly revolving. You must destroy the colonies.

Termites
Termites are widely regarded as a damaging pest to have in your home or business. Termites (sometimes known as ‘white ants’) can cause extensive damage to the structure of a building if they are not inspected, managed or treated by qualified termite control professionals.
Termites will feed on wood 24 hours-a-day. That means a termite infestation can quickly turn into a major problem. As their presence dates back 120 million years, termites are survivors and extremely difficult to exterminate without professional expertise.
Whether it’s your home or business premises, it’s likely to be your biggest investment in terms of money, sweat and tears, so naturally you want only the best provider for all your termite control needs.
