    The best treatment for getting rid of termites (or any other pests) is to hire a professional pest service provider such as Termite Control Lincoln CA. These expert know all the tricks to tackle these creepy termites and can eradicate them completely with their advanced methods and technology. An alternative method is of doing it yourself by some kind of spray, but this method lacks the technology and hence can be a failure. Whereas hiring an expert offers you trained and experienced exterminator for the elimination of these creepy pests.

    If you're DIY kind here are some ways on how you can eliminate termites:
    • No wood/cellulose materials – If possible, eliminate the following from your home: wooden furniture, wood planks, cardboard boxes, and other cellulose-based materials. This greatly reduces the risk of termites from infesting your home. Also, if you any of these materials in your garage, do not leave them outside. Be sure to store them in cabinets.
    • Have no moisture – If you do have wooden furniture, be sure to keep them away from moisture or soil. Aside from wood, damp places attract termites, as they need this kind of atmosphere to survive. They cannot live under extreme heat, which is why they crate mud tunnels when traveling to keep their surrounding temperature humid.
    • Create termite traps – One method you can use to verify if termites have made their way in your home is to set traps for them using the pile of cardboard boxes and pieces of paper you have stored. First, spray them with water in order to create a moist atmosphere. As mentioned earlier, termites need both cellulose and moisture to survive. Place them in an area where you found the termites and leave it for 2 days. Then, check if termites have taken the bait. If you do see them there, carry the trap outside your house with a trolley and burn the trap. You can repeat this as desired to see if you can fully eliminate the termites from your home.
    • Boric acid – The solution is an effective means of killing termites at the onset. It is a very poisonous chemical to the wood-burrowing insects. With gloves, mix boric acid powder with propylene glycol to create the solution. If you introduce this to certain areas of the wood or inside the tunnels, it will get rid of the termites.
    But if you’re not the D-I-Y kind of person when it comes to pest problems, it is highly recommendable that you contact a professional termite control service provider. They investigate and come up with safe and effective solutions on how to treat the termite infestation. Some of these include:
    • Repellants – This mixture keeps termites and other insects at bay, preventing them from entering your home.
    • Termiticides – When a termite colony is found in your soil, termiticides, like Sentricon’s Termite Colony Elimination system, are needed. Prior to installation, termite exterminators first drill a hole into the earth where the termites come from. Then, these devices are planted. A safe volume of chemicals is pumped into the bait stations installed around the house, securing the entire perimeter of your home. When subterranean termites pass through the trap, they bring with them the harmful chemicals to the colony, effectively killing it over time.
