Termites are best known for their destructive capabilities on wooden foundations, beams, walls and wooden floors. There is a need to control them so as to avert unexpected costs that could arise afterwards. Here are some of the most effective termite treatments options that you can use today to protect your property from a termite infestation.
Repellent Termiticides– This refers to a unique form of chemicals that are formulated using ingredients that have the capacity to repel termites. They usually create a barrier around the sprayed areas such as a soil medium to prevent the termites from entering the restricted areas. An extensive soil application of this chemical is required in a bid to treat all potential entry points that the termites may use.
Non-Repellent Termiticides– This is a more advanced termite treatment option that has proven to be more effective than most repellent termiticides. Instead of repelling termites, it tunnels them into a treated zone unknowingly since it is impossible for them to differentiate between treated and untreated soils. Some of the products in this category exhibit a transfer effect, that is, the termites that come into contact with treated soil can transfer the same effect to their nestmates. This in turn helps to eliminate all the termites within a short duration of time.
Wood Treatments– As the name suggests, this method is used to protect wooden surfaces or accessories such as cabinets from termites. Normally, termites control agencies usually spray or inject the treatment chemical into the wood. It is very effective in controlling the termite population if carried out as per the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
Liquid application Plus Bait and a Monitoring System– This is one of the most technologically advanced termite treatment options in the world today. It entails the use of a liquid chemical that not only repels termites but also kills all termites that come into contact with it. The bait is used to attract and capture termites that are later used to spread the chemical to their fellow nestmates. The monitoring system is on the other hand used to detect any activity. This in turn helps in identifying possible entry points.
