All You Need To Know About Termite Control

Only decorating your room is not enough to make the living place attractive and hygienic. But you also need to keep it fresh and away from the pests that can damage the construction of your building and furniture.

Does the home d├ęcor come to an end with this process of setting the house? Maintaining that lovely house is as important as building it. During its construction, there are chances to leave a room for the pests to get in, and the horrific one can be a swarm of termites. Termite control, in that case, becomes imperative.

What is Termite Control?

Termites are a breed of annoying pests, best featured as winged insects that primarily feed on decaying plant material and wood that are installed in your house. Paper, insulation, books and swimming pool liners are no exception to its feast. Termite control can be a complex game to figure out and climate as well. It is because one can never know as to when the infestation has already begun unless we see damaged wood and materials lying all over. A termite control professional can be of immense use in such cases.

Signs Of Termite Infestation

  • Swarms of winged termites are generally attracted to light and can be found wavering around doors and windows
  • Examining hollow spots on exposed wood material.
  • Cautiously differentiating between an ant swarm and a termite swarm
Mud tubes over supporting walls, support piers, floor joints, etc.

Termite Control

Recognition of termite colonies can be best judged by a termite control professional. Identifying critical areas of infestation requires knowledge of construction. There can be hidden potential points unseen in our eyes but a professional might see owing to his knowledge. 
A termite control includes equipment such as powerful masonry drill, long metal rods, large capacity spray tanks and gallons of a liquid pesticide called termiticide. 

Types Of Termite Treatments

  • Physical Treatment involves the installation of a physical barrier such as sands of different sizes and steel mesh. The incorporation of biological control agents such as nematodes and fungi can also be helpful.
  • Chemical Treatment such as a termiticide treatment should always be carefully and strictly accomplished by a trained pest control professional. The process includes termite baits, liquid soil-applied termiticides, termiticides on wood and building materials suffused with the pesticide.

How To Hack A Termite Infestation?

  • Choice of a pest control company – It should be licensed by the state.
  • Experienced technician – Call for an experienced professional rather than a recently hired one as one required good knowledge as well as experience on construction.
  • Pesticide product label – The product label should display information as to how the product needs to be used. If this is not the case with the product, it is not meant to conserve your structures against the pesky creatures.


  • Filling cracks in the openings such as cement structures reduce the access for the termites to enter the structures.
  • Any leaks should be fixed immediately
  • Plants such as trees and shrubs should not be planted too close to the house as well as to some wooden surface. Not adhering to this precaution might lead to an outbreak of the termite swarm.
  • Measures need to be taken to stores piles of firewood far away from the house.
  • Periodic inspection of the termite outbreak is required as a precautionary measure.
Termites are a stubborn breed of pests that can go away with the right and professional termite control process, however, the fact that they help to decompose the dead and decaying matter to prepare our soil can also not be ignored, the reason measures need to be taken accordingly.
