Termite infestation can be a real problem for home and owners. These little pests not only destroy your homes but can also be a source of major embarrassment. What most people would like to do is get rid of the termites and reduce the amount of termite damage caused by these little pests.
How to Control Termites
The following are some of the ways in which you can control termite infestation or get rid of them for good.
- Liquid termite treatment. In this process liquid termite medicine is sprayed over areas for termite extermination. This termiticide would get rid of any termites which come in contact with it; this will also help repel more termites from making colonies.
- Another way of getting rid of an infestation is by placing baits. This is effective because it helps kill off termite colonies gradually over a period of time by spreading pesticides through the worker termites.
- For those looking to move in to a new home a treatment known as borate termite treatment can prove to be really effective. It’s more like a coat of paint being applied over all your furniture. This is more of a preventive measure and something which all people must look into before moving house or office.
- Fumigation. Fumigation is really not such a good option because it only works on a few species and not on all kinds of termites.
How Long Does It Take For A Termite Treatment To Last
The amount of time that a termite treatment might last actually depends upon the kind of treatment used for extermination. Usually these treatment work more like a termite control. The liquid termite treatment can keep your homes termite free for about five years.
A boric termite treatment generally lasts a lifetime, but its only limited to the wood items in which the boric treatment has been drilled and not the rest of the home.
Bait treatments only last till the time the bait remains in position. Once the bait is removed or lost people find themselves facing another termite infestation.
