Effective Termite Treatment
There are many methods that can provide effective termite control. One of the most common used by our termite exterminators is to dig trenches along your home’s foundation. We fill the trenches with liquid Termidor SC®. Then we replace and mix the soil in with the termite treatment solution. Since termite habitats can go several stories down, depending on the severity we may need to take other measures as well.
DIY Termite Treatment
Depending on where termite activity was identified during your inspection, other termite treatment methods may be necessary to fully eliminate the problem. Factors of your home including age and the way it built can all affect what treatments are appropriate, so DIY treatments are never recommended.
