Should Premise be sprayed on a bare brick wall and concrete slab surface as a preventive measure against termites?
I stay in an old apartment building - it is an RCC structure with concrete columns, beams and slabs, and brick walls. Some of the apartments on the higher floors have had severe termite infestation - of the subterranean type. I am getting my apartment renovated and have stripped the brick walls of their plaster and removed the old tiles to expose the concrete slab floor prior to re-plastering of the walls and laying new tiles on the floor. The Pest Control company is recommending spraying the entire concrete floor area and bare brick walls (including both sides of walls entirely within my apartment) with Premise (active ingredient imidacloprid) as a preventive measure. Is that reasonable? Or would it be better to drill holes around the perimeter of the apartment at floor and ceiling levels and inject Premise to create a barrier?
