Safeguard Your Home: Jaipur's Premier Termite Control Services

by Avinash Mittal Blogger

Termites can do enormous damage to homes and other buildings in the course of their foraging. If left unchecked, they may even cause a house to collapse. Fortunately, there are several techniques that pest control specialists use to eradicate these destructive creatures. Liquid and bait termiticides, heat treatments and fumigation are all common methods for reducing or eliminating existing populations and preventing future infestations.

If you suspect you have a termite problem, the first thing to do is get an inspection from your local pest control company. A trained professional can identify the species of termites you have and suggest the most effective treatment method.

There are several telltale signs of a termite infestation. For example, if you see swarmers of flying termites near your home’s foundation, or if there are hollow spots in wood fixtures such as porches or decks, it is time to call in the professionals for an inspection and possibly a termite treatment.

For soil-applied jaipur Termite Control services, your pest control specialist can drill into the ground around your home and inject a chemical that creates a barrier to prevent termite access. This type of treatment also requires annual inspections.

The alternative to soil-applied termiticides are termite baits, which can be placed strategically in your yard to attract and trap termites. These baits contain slow-acting insecticides that termites ingest and carry back to their colonies. The termites that eat the bait are then poisoned, and the rest of the colony is quickly eliminated.

These baits can be combined with liquid or foam applications, as well as with dust agents that reach places that foam or liquid cannot. All pesticides used in termite control are regulated by the state and federal governments and must be applied according to strict instructions. The product label should include directions for application, pre-treatment requirements, warnings and precautionary statements, environmental hazards, toxicity to humans and pets, rate of application, reentry intervals, and storage and disposal instructions.

A specialized form of termite control is the use of beneficial nematodes. These microscopic, segmented roundworms are natural parasites to many garden pests, including termites, which they kill by releasing a bacterium into the termite’s gut. Beneficial nematodes are available online and at many garden centers.

To reduce your risk of termite infestation, it is important to cut back or remove dense vegetation that covers the building’s foundation and surrounding soil. Make sure gutters are in good condition and drain water away from the structure. In addition, check the perimeter of your home for cracks and crevices where termites might enter. Check for the presence of earthen "shelter tubes" made from bits of soil that close up breaks in infested wood, such as on basement walls or along foundations. Tubes that are wider than 1/4 inch in diameter are an indication of a severe termite problem. You can also tap on wood to test its strength; if it sounds hollow or gives way to the touch of a screwdriver, it is probably time for a termite inspection.
