Hi @KevinMall,


I've spoken to a few of our suppliers that deal with termite protection products and David Grays 500ml Ant And Termite Spray would be suitable for spraying the timber with. They also recommended spraying a perimeter pad around where the timber will be sitting on the ground. They have advised that their product would also be suitable for spraying timber furniture but to wait until it has dried completely before using the furniture.


I hope this information gives you an option and I'd be happy to answer any additional questions you might have.
