Drilling in front of garage door

I am puzzled, should I drill in front of my garage door or not? Or inside. I saw 3 houses in the neighborhood
with similar houses as mine. They had termite treatment with holes at 6 in from wall, but did not have hole in front of their garage.
I know I need a continuous parameter. Is it possible there is a water or sewage pipe in front of garage? I know I don't have gas of electricity there canse I called 811.

I do have termites swarmers. But no mud tunnel or other evidence according to 3 pest control inspector. It dose not seem that the garage is another slam.

I would drilled them in the floor on the inside and back filled them with morter to seal them up.

We donít drill across the garage door opening, but we do drill up to the frame/trim. Sometime with a blacktop driveway there is enough of a gap between blacktop and door trim that we can treat into that gap as if it is a hole but you wonít know if it works until you try it.
