Termites are insects that cause serious damage to wooden objects. The walls and foundation of your house can be badly affected if they get infested by these impudent insects. Your furniture is never safe if it has even a small group of termites. Besides wooden objects, they have the capability of making holes in your books too. That makes it essential to get rid of termites from your house once and for all.
One of the most effective methods recommended is the use of liquid anti-termite solutions. These liquids quickly destroy the termites by destroying their basic structural constituents. One con of using these liquid solutions is the hard work that this method requires. You need to dig large holes around your house to get the solutions deep in the foundation. The walls also require a large amount of solution to be effective.
Compared to liquids, granules are a quick and cost-effective method. You don’t need any holes in the ground. Granules can be easily spread at the desired spots. However, they may take a longer time to be effective compared to liquids.
Another effective way to get rid of termites from your house is by using baits. Baits are usually the solutions or chemical compounds, and are usually placed in soil. Once one of the termites eats them, it can transmit it to the rest of its colony. Consequently, this can kill a large population of termites by something you can call a chain reaction.
Nature has provided us some good tools to get rid of termites too. Sun, the ultimate source of all energy, can be useful for this purpose. You can place your wooden furniture in the Sun for a couple hours. The heat will make the insects leave your furniture.
Animal and insect populations are controlled by nature by using predators. Knowledge of the predators of termites can be helpful to get rid of termites from your house naturally. Nematodes and ants are known to eat termites. So, if you artificially introduce these natural predators in a place infested by termites, they will get eaten up.
Specially prepared dust and some powders can also be used in cases where liquids and granules are not available. Diatomaceous earth is one of these solutions.
Looking at all these options, we can conclude that termites can be really damaging. With the right approach, you can get rid of termites without a hitch.Updated Date: 23 October 2019, 21:59
