I don’t have any special knowledge in the area, but I have to think that you should do the tent treatment prior to applying any finish if you seriously think you may have an infestation problem. Otherwise you are rolling the dice. I don’t know what chemicals they will be using for the treatment, but the urethane finish will certainly provide some degree of a barrier to their penetration into the wood. I believe that your comment on protecting the termites from the treatment is valid. That is the chemist in me speaking.
