Install Termite Bait Traps On The Property
Bait traps work well at removing termites from the soil of a homeowner's property. These are made from plastic tubing with holes in one portion. The side with holes is pushed into the soil. The top portion has an opening where a termite bait is pushed inside. This can be purchased from a pest control company. The termites will be able to crawl into the holed portion underground. They will have access to the bait and will then be able to crawl back out of the bait trap to their lair. The bait will be shared with others in the colony, killing all who eat it.
Use Nematodes To Kill Any Termites Present
Some homeowners will take the route in the use of organic nematodes to remove termites. These are small worm-like creatures that are sprinkled directly to the soil around the home. They will burrow into the ground and will eat any termites that cross their path. This is an effective way to remove termites without needing to use chemicals to do so.
Call A Pest Control Service To Do An Evaluation
A pest control service can be hired to do a complete assessment of the home's structure and property. They will know the tell-tale signs of a termite problem and will effectively remove them if necessary. They can also do fungus treatments of the home. Since fungus will attract termites, removing it effectively is necessary. A pest control service could also aid in the setup of bait traps if desired.
The best way to handle a termite problem is to call a pest control service right away. They will send a professional worker trained to identify a termite problem. They will then speak with the homeowner about the options available to them in removing these pests for good. Call a pest control service at the first suspicions of a termite problem or to do an evaluation of the land to thwart one before it starts.
