If you’re like most homeowners, you’ve probably wondered at one point or another, “Can I treat termites myself?” While spraying for termites on your own or using natural termite control products from your local hardware store may seem less expensive than hiring a professional, it is simply not as effective and will likely end up costing your more money in terms of damage to your home.
The Most Effective Treatment
The most effective treatments for termites on the market today are not available at your local hardware store. In order to receive the best products to treat for termites in your home, therefore, you’ll have to call in a professional. A termite specialist will be able to recommend the best and most effective treatment for the type of termites you have. Using a termite baiting system, termite barrier, or liquid injection application – or a combination of the three – your exterminator can target the termite colonies on your property with termite treatment methods that work for the age, size and type of termites infesting your home.
Even the most effective treatment chemicals typically come with a “caution” warning label according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards – the lowest warning label that the EPA issues. Products with a caution warning label are deemed to pose a very minimal risk of danger to humans and animals that come into contact with the chemical. This means it is safe for use even in areas where your children or pets have access.
If you’re wondering, “Can I treat termites myself?”, you should know that professional termite treatment is not as expensive as you may think. In fact, getting professional treatment may actually save you money in remodeling costs to repair termite damage to your home.
