How to control termites

Posted on by fpadm

If you happen to live in an area that is prone to having a termite problem it’s a good idea to know how you can control the problem. Of course the best way to stop termites infesting your home is to not have them in the first place. You can also arrange a termite pest control inspection in Sydney from Forensic Pest Control, they will be able to tell you if have or have had a termite problem.

One of the most important things you need to know is termites thrive in a moist environment so by making sure there isn’t any water or moisture around to attract them is a great idea. Fix any leaky pipes or dripping taps – basically any source of water that is permanent. If you use a sprinkler avoid the sprinkler wetting any wood close to your home and keep all wood away from your house, don’t store wood under or near you home, and try and always use treated wood anywhere where wood might be touching the ground – such as on decks and patios.

Termite pest control in Sydney is best handled by Forensic Pest Control and while there are some treatments you can do yourself – such as sprays that can be used around the perimeter of your home for full and guaranteed protection you need to call the professionals at Forensic Pest Control.

There are some natural treatments you can try for termite treatment and prevention which is Orange Oil and Boric Acid, please note that while these are natural methods, in high doses they can be lethal to pets and children so handle them with care. Orange Oil is the least toxic of the two but it only works on dry wood termites while Boric Acid is applied to the wood itself but it needs to be brushed onto the wood BEFORE construction.
