Can you spray for termites?

Question: My neighbor just told me that he has termites. He found out because of a hole in his foundation. In working on that they found the termites. He's going to get sprayed next week.

Does the spraying kill the termites? What can/should we do to prevent the termites from coming over to our home?

Answer: Termites don't create holes in the foundation, and spraying will not solve the problem ... so, I'm not sure what is going on at the neighbor's. Termites are out to destroy your most valuable possession, your home. Termite work is not a project for a do-it-yourself person, no matter how handy that person may be. This is a job for a professional Pest Control Operator.
