A question from Peter:
Does a mixture of diesel and sump oil poured around the perimeter of a building would work against termites, and how long would it last? As far as I can tell, Termite companies rely on ignorance and fear to make their money, but on that score, you are on your own. You’re a good bloke, How is he going to answer on this one?
Answer: Pouring oil around the building that might be an effective barrier and yes it probably lasts for 3 months, but that’s not a long time. And you wouldn’t want that expense or the hazard for just for a few months of effectiveness.
