I'm in Houston, TX and we have subterranean termites.
I have a wooden deck (built by prior owners) that butts right up against the slab and is laid out like this ( https://imgur.com/a/nHNbbBg )
Its impossible to see under it, or do any sort of termite preventative treatment against the slab in those locations where the deck and home meet.
How the hell do I protect myself against termites without ripping the deck up?

I'm thinking we may need to demolish part of the deck and do something similar to this. Good call.

Good idea, but check out how the decking is attached to the house --- https://imgur.com/a/K3eEP4q
There's a 2x6 or something flush against the slab and the decking planks are laid on top of it. I don't see an easy to inspect the slab with this layout.
I guess just drill holes and treat it and hope for the best?
