If you have spotted a termite issue on your property, it is best to contact a pest control company to offer appropriate treatment for the same. Professional pest control treatments eradicate termites from your property and make arrangements to prevent them from coming back again in future. When you hire a professional, you can expect to inspect your property to check for the level of infestation and amount of damage done. A treatment will then be offered depending on the condition of your furniture or walls. With appropriate treatments, it is possible to remove termites forever from your home.
If you have spotted small termite holes in your furniture, the chances are that this is the beginning of the infestation. You may use natural ways to kill the termite or hire a professional to do so. You can later cover the small holes using a wood hardener. However, if the level of infestation is high, there are chances of the wood being damaged too much. In this case, you must remove damaged wood to prevent your furniture’s condition to worsen. Remember, small holes can be covered easily. However, big holes require replacing wood or furniture as they can’t be covered up well.
Many termite treatments can give you great results. However, the one which is the most common and preferred by many is the installation of a baiting system. This procedure requires a pest control professional to instal baits in areas that are affected. When the termite feed on these baits, they begin to die. It is usual for termites to collect food and take it to their mates and the queen. Once the entire colony has consumed the bait, the infestation issue ends. This treatment is effective and convenient to be applied in various settings, be it home or office.
One of the most effective natural remedies for killing termite is borax powder. Sprinkle borax powder on the affected area to kill termites naturally. You may prepare a liquid solution by mixing the borax powder with water. You can fill this solution in a bottle and spray it on to the affected area as and when required. It is essential to know that natural remedies only work when the infestation level is low. If your furniture has been affected by termites for a long, you will have to hire a professional to treat the issue.
The simple answer to this is No. Your home insurance will not cover damages done by termites. Insurance companies cover accidental damages. Damage done to your property by termites isn’t considered to be an accident as you can keep an eye on your property through regular inspection. Also, with thorough checks, you can spot the issue initially and get it treated on time, so there’s no damage done to your property in the long run. As insurance companies believe termite attacks are preventable, they do not include any coverage for them in the policy.
The time taken for the termites to vanish from your property depends on the type of treatment used. If you have got baits installed on your property by a pest control expert, you may have to wait for a few weeks to see the results. As and when the termites come in contact with the bait, they will begin to die. For the entire colony to be killed, you may have to wait for at least a week or so as the bait may reach the colony’s queen in a few days.
It is recommended to get your home treated for termites at the first sign itself. Acting fast upon the problem will save you the time and effort for getting extensive treatments done. How frequently you will have to treat your home for termites depends upon its condition. If you appoint a professional to treat the issue initially, the chances are you may not have to repeat it for several years. However, if you had delayed the procedure for long and got the treatment done when the problem was huge, you may have to get a regular inspection done to ensure the problem isn’t arising again. With liquid termite treatment, you may not require a repeat session for up to 5 years. Whereas, with bait systems, re-treatment is required every few months.

Every termite treatment works differently. If you choose chemical treatment for your property, you can expect the soil on which your building will stand to be chemically treated. When termites come in contact with the chemical, they die instantly. Hence, this treatment prevents termites from entering your property and damaging your furniture or wall. If you choose the bait treatment for your property, the baits installed in your home become the source of food for the termites. Since the baits include pest-killing insecticides, all termites coming in direct or indirect contact with the baits die over time.
