Are you ready to get rid of termites from your home forever? Good! Pat yourself on the back: not enough people are willing to invest in the kind of professional pest control that a serious termite infestation requires. However, you’re going to need to stop utilizing your old-fashioned DIY treatments as soon as possible.
First of all, most DIY termite control methods aren’t really very effective. Most of them center around killing a handful of termites, without truly eliminating the problem. That’s because most of them aren’t effective in killing the queen, and if you can’t kill the queen, you aren’t going to get rid of a termite colony.
If you’ve never heard of a termite queen, think of her as the CEO of a termite colony. She basically controls everything: she not only gives birth to every termite in a colony, but she is also heavily protected and kept out of reach by her “employees,” i.e. the termites you want to eliminate from your home and your life.
Putting down termite traps may get rid of a few tray fellows, but they’re going to be quickly replaced the next time the queen lays some eggs. As long as she continues to get food (the wood of your home) and is protected, she’ll keep pumping out more termites and will stay in control of your home.
Hopefully, that clears up any confusion you may have regarding DIY termite control methods. If not, call a professional right away and talk to them about your problem. You’ll quickly find that they know exactly what they’re doing and will eliminate termites from your quickly, easily, and efficiently.
