How to Get Rid of Termites Permanently

If you’re living in the Houston area, you might be well aware that termites are a common concern for homeowners. In fact, it’s often said that it’s not a matter of if you’ll get termites but when. I want to tell you about three effective ways to prevent and eliminate termites from your structure.

How Should You Take Preventive Measures During Construction?

The first one is a physical barrier. If your house is on a slab, a physical barrier may not be effective. If your home is on peer and beam structures, then you can install a metal barrier on top of blocks. The tilted metal prevents termites from reaching the wood structure. This method only works as your house is in construction and being built. 

What Is The Traditional Treatment Method?

The second way to deal with termites is using liquid insecticides. We used to only be able to do this by digging a trench around the house and pump chemicals into the ground and soil which created a chemical barrier. Ultimately, when using this method clay-rich. Chemical barriers have a limited lifespan due to sunlight and rain. And if you live in the country or In rural areas with water wells, leaching chemicals  may impact the water system.

What Is The Best and Permanent Solution?

The best solution for termites, in my opinion, is baits. There are many baits on the market but we strongly recommend the Sentricon bait system. Baits kill the entire termite colony because it works continuously. Termites consume the bait, take it back to the colony, and feed it to others.
