Termites

Resolved Question Show me another »
What is the best way to get rid of termites?
Since I've moved into my new place there has been three outbreaks of termites every time it has rained heavily. The other two times the exterminator has ground treated for the termites but they keep coming back. Is there a better solution to treating for the termites other than ground treating that will get rid of them for good?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

Lots of times these subterranean termites sneak in without using the soil.

One favourite is to come in via cable conduits (airconditioning ducts,electrical, cable etc) having entered down the street a bit. You can poison all you like around the house and it won't make any difference as the chemical can't get through the conduit.

Sometimes a house in bad repair or with plumbing problems has a big wet spot inside that can supply all the termites' water needs and they don't go though the soil anymore.

In both of these cases what works best is a limited application of poison inside the building (scary?). We used to do this with baits placed on likely feeding spots but these have a low rate of uptake and the control is slow and messy. A more modern approach (OK, a 1930s approach with new chemicals) is to apply tiny amounts of Termidor dust into the tunnels where the termites are active. This will kill that colony.

After that, you'd better get regular and frequent inspections for a while just in case other colonies are active.

'Dusting' is skilled. Your guy probably would need training to get it right. That should be readily available. Failing that, go for the baiting. Exterra and Sentricon are market leaders. Don't even think about DIY.

Relax, a solution is possible. Get specialist help as they are trained proffesionals in the pest control industry and could probably save you a fortune.
