Do’s and Don’ts of Termite Treatment

Arizona's Experts Since 1969

Termite Treatment is one of the most popular topics in the pest control industry and one that can be easily addressed. With termites being a natural occurrence in areas of the world, it is important to address these issues as quickly and efficiently as possible. This is why many companies now stock termiticides that are effective against the destructive insects and do so in environmentally friendly and non-toxic substances. When it comes to termite treatments, it is important to choose the right product for the job, as there are many chemicals on the market which have not been proven to be effective.

The most common termite treatment product is baits or bait. These baits can come in the form of liquid, granules, or granular materials that are placed around the house to attract termites. Baits can contain many ingredients, including but not limited to, pesticides, insecticides, or even personal lubricants such as petroleum jelly. However, baits need to be tested properly before they can be sold, as some may be too toxic for homeowners. It is important to check with the manufacturer if you are unsure about the chemical and dosage levels used in the product, as some baits have been known to cause severe reactions in sensitive people.

There are also a number of Termite Treatments options available for you should the Termite issue is not resolved within your home. One of these options is soil treatment, which includes application of pesticides or other chemical substances onto the affected area. A professional pest control company will be able to discuss the options open to you, and will be able to advise on the best course of action. If you are not comfortable with handling chemicals or would prefer to use a Termite Treatment that does not require contact with the ground, there are a number of Termite Bait Treatments available, which will not require any type of drilling or digging. It is important to remember that each Termite Treatment will have a different effect on the environment, and therefore on the possible risks to you and your family – it is essential that you only make an attempt at a treatment if you are confident about the strength of the chemicals being used and that no one else in the vicinity is present.
