Termites are a terrible pest to have, and they can be attacking your house. These pests chew through wood and use it to feed their colony. If you have these pests, they can cause a lot of damage to your home and wreak havoc as they chew through your house. They can be very difficult to get rid of, as there could be thousands upon thousands of them in their colony. If you have a problem with termites, you should know how to get rid of them.
Remove The Damaged Wood
Get rid of the damaged wood from your house. These pests are feeding on damaged wood, like wood that is moist and wet. Remove this wood and replace it with new wood. Figuring out what caused the moisture will also help get rid of these pests. If you remove the damaged wood, it may help get these pests moving on to someplace else to eat and feed their colony instead of at your house.
Spray The Termite Tunnels
Kill the pests themselves by spraying the termite tunnels. These tunnels may be above ground, or they could be below it. You may also notice some of the tunnels along your home's foundation. Once you find the tunnels, use a pesticide spray to kill the pests. You may not get rid of all of them, but you will get rid of any that are in the tunnels. Smashing the tunnels can also help get rid of these pests as well. Continue to spray the tunnels over the next few days in order to kill any more that may still be around.
Spray Your House
If you have termites in your home, you can use a pesticide spray inside, or you can use a pest bomb that kills termites. Set the bombs around where you have seen these pests, or where you suspect they have been feeding on your house. Get rid of the dead pests that you have to prevent having some other pest problem that will feed off of the dead termites.
If you have a problem with termites, hire a pest control company to help you rid your house of these pests. They can cause a lot of damage that can be extensive and expensive. Hire a professional to help you to ensure they are properly removed from your home and to help you figure out how to prevent having this pest problem again.
