If you are a homeowner, you should know that there are several species of termites native to Arizona that are known to cause damage to homes. To prevent costly damage caused by termites, it is a good idea to consult with a termite specialist to ask about getting termite barrier treatment for your home. A professional can offer strategies for creating a chemical and physical termite barrier around your home using the best termite treatment products available.
What Is a Termite Barrier?
Barriers are a great way to prevent subterranean termites from gaining access to your home. Because they live in colonies underground, subterranean termites must travel to your home from their nests beneath the surface of your yard. Termite barriers work to block access points to food sources in your house. In general, there are two basic types of termite barriers. A chemical termite barrier involves injecting termiticide into the soil surrounding your home at regular intervals to create an invisible line of defense that is lethal to termites. A physical termite barrier provides a layer of protection between the soil and your home’s foundation using steel mesh screens.
Why Hire a Professional?
Some do-it-yourself barrier treatment products require you to dig a shallow trench around your entire home in order to apply the termite control agent, which can wreak havoc on your lawn. Professional treatments, on the other hand, are non-invasive and will require minimal disruption to the soil, plants and other landscaping features in your yard. In addition, termite control specialists will also be able to install physical termite barriers so that they won’t compromise the aesthetic appearance of your home or yard. For the most effective termite control methods – and the least damage to your landscaping – it is essential to hire a professional to provide termite barrier treatments.
