Getting rid of termites can be done by yourself or by hiring a local exterminating company. You can do this by first verifying that you have a termite infestation in your home. One common sign that you have a termite infestation is a mud-like material appearing on wood. Sawdust and the appearance of paint bubbles are another sign of termite infestation.
One way that you can get rid or termites is to use a liquid treatment option. This is a pesticide you need to spray around your home’s foundation or other areas that show termite signs. Using a liquid treatment option creates a barrier to keep termites away from your home.
Another way to get rid of termites is to use termite baits. These are a type of plastic stake filled with food to attract termites. Pesticides in the stakes are taken by termites back to the nest which treats the source of the infestation.
