What is the Best Chemical Available for Termite Treatment?

Many homeowners researching their options for termite control want to know which of the available chemicals will work the best to help them deal with their pest control problem. Ever since chlordane and other like chemicals were taken off the market in the late 1980s, many people have been confused about which products are the best ones to use. In reality, there is not a whole lot of difference in the performance capabilities of the different termiticides on the market today. Most are more similar to one another than they are different, especially from a performance standpoint.

Barrier Effectiveness Depends on Application

If any of the termiticide products on the market today are used in a termite treatment, the most common cause for failure is the application itself. If the chemicals are improperly applied, or if the chemical barrier is left incomplete, termites will still be able to gain access at their entry points and continue to get into the home. They are so small that even the smallest gap in a chemical barrier can be exploited by a colony and allow them to get at your structure and continue to do damage. For this reason, persistence is often the key even for an experienced technician.

Incomplete Termiticide Application Examples

Incomplete application of a pesticide to prevent infestation could be caused by diluting the substance with too much water, failing to inject the pesticide all the way to the basement footings, being used in insufficient quantities per label directions, and failing to follow treatment directions on the label of the insecticide. Termite treatment procedures are easily identifiable on the label of the insecticide in use, and they should always be followed to the letter to ensure proper application of the chemical barrier.
