Termite Control - What You Need to Know


When it comes to termite control, every homeowner should be aware of different methods used to eliminate infestations and prevent future damage. We’ll take a look at some of the more common ways that pest control professionals attack and treat a termite problem, how to recognize the signs of an infestation, and what can be done to help prevent a future recurrence.

Most Jaipur Termite Control services involve the application of a liquid insecticide under and around the structure. Liquid termiticides are highly effective, but they are also invasive. They require drilling and soil movement, which can lead to structural damage in some cases. This method is most commonly used for subterranean and drywood termite infestations.

Another common treatment is the use of bait stations, which attract and kill termites by exposing them to slow-acting insecticides. These baits are a less invasive option that can be used for both subterranean and drywood infestations. Most bait products are only available through professional pest control services, but a few are sold “over the counter” at retail stores.

There are also several non-chemical and “organic” controls that have been promoted for termite prevention or control. These include nematodes, fungi, sand barriers, orange oil and borate sprays. While some of these may offer a degree of protection, none have been proven to be as effective as the more conventional approaches to termite control discussed above.

Many homeowners can help protect their homes from termites by reducing moisture around the structure. Moisture is a primary attractant for both subterranean and drywood termites, so eliminating the presence of damp areas around the home is one of the best ways to prevent an infestation. Keep landscaping trimmed away from the house, and be sure that gutters are in good condition and drain water away from the foundation. Keep firewood stacked off the ground, and remove tree stumps and wood debris from the yard.

Some termite control companies specialize in pretreating new construction against a termite infestation. These companies have special equipment and can apply a chemical pretreatment under and around the building to provide a strong barrier against termite invasions. This is a highly effective, yet inexpensive, approach to termite prevention that can be done in the course of construction or as part of a new home purchase.

Termite control begins with an inspection. A thorough inspection of the property will identify any existing termite activity and determine which treatment method is necessary to eliminate it. A reputable pest control company will have the tools and experience to quickly find entry points, identify colonies, and create an appropriate treatment plan.
