  To minimize pesticide use and intrusion to homes, we evaluate the efficacy of an innovative limited interior perimeter plus external perimeter application of imidacloprid as an IPM option in post-construction termite control in a dilution of ratio 1:400. Seven private houses were chosen for the research. All the structures were treated as minimum interior and exterior drilling showed full control of the foraging termite population inside the structure within 3 months
