One of the biggest reasons termite control often fails is by eliminating termites without proper preparation. There are many different products which kill termites quickly, but if termites do not return to their underground colony, it often does not receive attention. This will eventually lead to a termite colony to take more defensive measures to prevent further damage. A termite control company should be consulted to determine what type of termite control would work best in your specific situation. If you have multiple infestations, the methods used may need to be changed periodically as well to ensure effectiveness.Do you want to learn more?

An effective way to eliminate termite infestation is with baits and barriers. A bait that is effective for eliminating subterranean termite is called “Binocline.” This baits and barriers have come in liquid or powder form and are placed beneath the exposed wood of your house, foundation, or wall. Baiting systems use chemicals which are applied below the surface, while barriers to use an above ground, weight-bearing structure to keep termites from entering the house. Both systems will make the entry point of the termite into the concrete and wooden structure where they will be killed and unable to reproduce.
As an alternative to baiting and barrier systems, termite monitoring is a good idea as well. Termite monitoring allows a pest control company to observe your property to make sure that no new termite infestations have occurred. If a new colony has formed, pest control companies will be able to detect the colony with special equipment and send in a special truck with a baited barrier. They will then set up monitoring stations throughout your property to keep a close eye on the colonies. Most pest companies have monitoring kits available for this purpose which contain special cameras and transmitters that allow monitoring companies to locate the colonies at regular intervals.
