Three years ago my house was treated with Prothor SC 2 in which the tubes disappeared. Now I have them in my ceiling with no visable tubes. I will be doing this treatment myself with Termidor HE. Do I use 0.06% or 0.125% dilution rate for trenching and vertical drilling into a concrete slab over dirt? Can I use a funnel for the vertical holes @ 16" apart insted of a lateral-dispersal nozzel @ 18" apart? Which product should I use for dead queen palm tree roots? Thank You, Darren

I am not a fan of using Termidor HE unless the soil conditions require it. In most cases, using more water delivers better penetration and broader coverage. Unless you have the BASF High Efficiency Soil Injector, Termidor HE may not do an adequate job. The question becomes, at what point can you achieve full coverage under the slab without gaps or untreated areas?
The more liquid Termidor the better. It doesn't matter how far apart you drill the holes if the chemical doesn't fill the gap between them. This might take some experimentation.
Are termites in the dead palm tree roots also?
