Can I Treat My House for Termites Myself?

When termites are in your home, you want to find the most cost effective solution toward getting rid of them. This is because termites can be a severe and ongoing problem that needs to be taken care of quickly. You have no choice but to take care of the problem quickly because the longer termites exist in your home, the larger the colony gets, and the harder they are to get rid of.

Chemicals that are Used

There are a number of treatments that are used to get rid of termites, and it is important to be aware of the dangers of termite chemicals. The type of chemical depends upon the extent of the infestation. If it is a severe infestation, then the extermination process will be somewhat more extensive, yet still affordable.

The pest control specialist may use a spray chemical or they may use baits. In many cases, they will use baits and then apply spot treatments of chemicals. In addition, they will apply chemicals to the foundation of the home.

Repellants are also used outside of the home to keep termites away in the first place. This is also ideal after an extermination has taken place because this can prevent them from coming back later.

Do it Yourself?

Although you can buy chemicals at stores such as farm supply stores, it can be dangerous to handle the chemicals on your own. Furthermore, a professional pest control specialist can use the right chemicals for the type of infestation you have. They know what signs to look for that indicate the severity of an infestation. Because termites reside in your walls and eat away at support beams, your wood floors, and even make their way to your old books, you have to be able to stop them quickly and stop them the right way and without that expertise, do-it-yourself termite control may not be enough.
