What Kind of Poison to Use for Termites?

Some termite prevention and treatment methods require the application of termiticides, which are pesticides that can control or kill termites. (Some homeowners may refer to these products as the best kind of “termite poison.”)

The exact treatment approach depends on the termite species and the location of the termite infestation. Termiticides can be used in liquid, foam, granule or gas form to control subterranean and drywood termite infestations in and around homes. Baits can be used in devices strategically placed around a home to control subterranean termites.

What is the Most Effective Termite Control Method?
Before you try termite control  ”what some people refer to as ‘termite poisoning’ ” on your own, you should know that termites can be difficult to control. Not only can they be active with limited to no signs of activity, they require a knowledgeable, trained professional to provide treatment.

Experienced pest control professionals are trained to identify which treatment approach will be most effective for a home. Professionals also understand pesticide regulations and have the specific equipment required to ensure the appropriate application of treatment materials.

If you see signs of termites or want to learn how to prevent termite infestations, call a specialist. He or she can identify signs of an infestation, recommend treatment and provide recommendations on how to reduce moisture and food sources that allow termites to thrive around your home.
