Tip 3: Professional Treatment Options for Eliminating Termites

If termites have infiltrated your home, professional termite treatment is advised. There are several options for eliminating termites. The first is tenting the home and fumigating with sulfuryl fluoride gas. This kills all termites inside but requires your family to vacate the home for 3-5 days and does not provide lasting prevention. Another option is soil treatment by trenching and applying termiticide around the foundation. This forms a chemical barrier to repel termites. Annual retreatments may be needed. For more focused application, some companies drill small holes into infested areas and inject termiticide. Finally, baits can be used containing slow-acting poison that termites ingest and spread through their colony. The benefit of baits is a smaller amount of chemicals needed. Compare all methods and costs to determine the best termite treatment plan for your situation. Be sure to hire a licensed, experienced professional. With an intensive treatment program and continued vigilance, you can eliminate termites and protect your home from these destructive pests.
