Buy Chlorpyrifos. Popular brand is Perfect Killer and 1L is sold for 3,500 naira.
Mix ratio: To fumigate the affected wood, add 200-300ml of the chemical to 15L water.
To eliminate the queen, just mix little qty. of the chemical to 'garri' and sprinkle it in and around the colony. The workers will pick some of them to feed the queen and the king.

Exactly.

Weeds killed by paraquat will emerge after 2 months or so
Yes boss.
Atrazine kills the seed and by adding it, it may take up to 6 months before weeds emerge.

Boss sorry for the unfortunate experience you have had in your project.

How I handle sites prone to loss of materials via stealing.

If it is almost impossible to take inventory of materials at my project site, I usually adopt the JUST IN TIME approach where I make payment to vendors on required materials and liaise with them to only deliver the quantity needed for a particular day.
Usually I use bike men for such arrangement, they deliver quantities of rods,binding wire,cement, wood needed for the day, that way we do not store anything on site.

Some dubious ones may even connive with area boys to steal materials from site.

Well, you said well.

They stole a mounted Storex from a house two doors away. I traced it to a new block industry. The Store was "given" to him allegedly by one of the area boys. The said area boy came to my house a few days later to shout that I was using the Drone to spy on his Wife in his compound.
