Home remedy for treating a house for termites?

Wanted to share this. Used auto antifreeze is a taste termites don’t like. Spray with a garden pump sprayer to under house joists and base plate, NOT to underside of floors or hardwoods. The lumber will absorb the antifreeze and cause the wood to be very distasteful to termites. Keep in mind antifreeze is poision to dogs and is water soluable, so if the treated wood is standing in water the water will in time dilute it, also if you treat the underside of the hardwood flooring it might discolor it.
