No. It is not advisable to use surface spraying on termites because this might turn your termite problem from bad to worst.
What you kill with sprays is only the tip of an iceberg. A big chunk of live termites are still living underground.
They are awaiting for the chemical residue to disappear in weeks and re-infest the same spot again or even worst, to attack your wooden fittings that are not sprayed in another location inside your house.
Thus, very often, continuous spraying would make your localized termite problem becomes a widespread problem.
