 How to Get Rid of Termites

Hello, I’m Lee. A few months ago, we noticed signs that we might have termites in our home. As you can imagine, I was really worried; however, after getting some advice from pest control companies, we were able to start tackling the problem. I was surprised at how many options we had to get rid of our existing termites and the decisions we had to make to prevent the problem from happening again. I learned more than I thought I’d ever need to know about termites and how to deal with them and I thought this knowledge might be useful for other homeowners who have similar problems. Hope it helps you get rid of your termites!


3 Benefits of Natural Termite Control Solutions

Australia's warm weather makes termite infestation a problem for homeowners throughout the year. As such, it pays to remain diligent regarding termite control. Notably, different pest control companies claim to offer the best services; therefore, selecting the right provider can be a problem. One attribute you can use to ease the selection process is evaluating the types of agents that termite control services use. Ideally, you should choose a termite control service that uses natural agents. Here is why.  

No Need to Leave Home

Some pest control services ask homeowners to leave their homes for a couple of hours when preparing for termite control. It is designed to prevent residents from breathing in the chemicals. However, you do not have to worry about leaving your home if control services use natural agents. For instance, organic orange oil is a popular natural termite control agent used by some service providers. It is very effective at keeping termites away and user friendly. Most importantly, it means that you can remain in the comfort of your home even as pest control services treat it with natural termite management agents.  

Landscape Protection

A lawn is an essential part of a property. Thus, it is not strange for property owners to spend hundreds of dollars to keep their lawn in impeccable condition. However, you must be careful when pest control services turn up with chemical-based termite control agents. Ths chemical agents used might be harsh on natural vegetation or render soil infertile. For instance, a common termite control agent, sulfuryl chloride, can severely damage the grass and shrubbery on your lawn. On the other hand, natural termite control agents are friendly to vegetation and do not harm or change the appearance of grass.

Healthier Home

Imagine leaving your utensils and furniture exposed to harmful termite control agents and later serving food in the same cutlery. Anyone who eats from the utensils will get sick and end up in the hospital. Unfortunately, most homeowners forget to cover or safely lock everything in their kitchens to prevent termite control chemical droplets from settling on unwanted surfaces. However, even if you remember to do so, you still have to wash the utensils and furniture covers to eliminate any traces of chemicals. Natural termite control agents promote a healthier home because the droplets are not harmful. You can leave the windows open without worrying about the adverse effects of natural termite control solutions.
