How Does Pest Control Get Rid of Termites?

Termites are master chewers that feed on wood and other cellulose materials. They can eat away at your home’s foundation, wooden structures, and furniture. So, from the outset, you have to be careful that you are building only after proper anti-termite treatment. So, reach out to the best termite control in Kolkata and termite-proof your home.

There are natural methods of getting rid of termites, as well as artificial methods. The artificial methods of getting rid of termites are more effective and tackle the problem from the core.

Let’s look at a few of the methods of termite removal.

  • Using Termiticide

We use termiticide to get rid of termites. We spray this on the surface properly so that most of the surface is covered. The termite does not avoid the termiticide. In fact, it will eat the wood or other cellulose-rich material where termiticide was sprayed. Eating this poisonous termiticide means the termite will die.

Also, once a termite comes in contact with termiticide, it will spread the stuff throughout the colony. This will lead to the death of the entire colony.

  • Termite Baits

This is a slow-acting toxin that acts on termites effectively. It interrupts termites’ natural growth and kills them when they try to molt. The toxins work in a delayed manner. So the entire colony gets infected and the termites are exterminated. Contact the best termite control in Kolkata to set up these termite baits around the perimeter of your house.

  • Nematodes that eat termites

This is something that we do not use at ServiceZet, but this is another useful way to get rid of termites. These are roundworms that if introduced to a termite colony will destroy the termites. You can find these nematodes online. The correct way to apply them is to spread them around a termite colony along with soil and water.

  • Drilling in Holes in the Furniture

This is also known as a spot treatment. In this case, you will have to drill into the furniture and apply the termiticide to the exact spot where the infestation is. Once you finish you can patch up the holes with putty.

  • Neem oil or orange oil

These are some natural methods by which you can get rid of termites. Neem oil and orange oil inhibit the termites’ ability to shed skin, or lay eggs. This will need to be reapplied occasionally.

  • Boric acid

This is another common method to get rid of termites. Spray boric acid over the termite territory. Boric acid shuts down the nervous system of the termite and dehydrated it as well. Spray cracks and crevices with the boric acid. This is the most effective method to get rid of termites.
