It doesn't take too long for termites to cause a lot of damage, so at the first sign of these pests, you need to get them exterminated right away. Read on for some tips to help you exterminate termites from your home.
Inspect Your Wood Thoroughly
Inspect the wood on your home thoroughly to be sure you exterminate all of the termites from your home. If you've spotted them in one area, check all surrounding areas as well. You're looking for wood that is damaged by water or that is hollowed. If you have this type of wood, you're going to need to remove and replace it. Inspect all of the surrounding wood to ensure you exterminate all of the termites from your home.
Spray A Pesticide
Spray a pesticide on the wood that has had termites in them. Spray all surrounding areas to help kill the pests you have and to prevent them from infesting other parts of your home, or surrounding neighborhood homes as well. Soak the wood if you have to with the pesticide.
Remove Damaged Wood
Remove all damaged wood from your home that has been ravaged by these pests. Take out the damaged wood and replace it with new, treated wood that will help to repel water and prevent the same type of damage from luring in these pests. Once the wood has been removed, you should burn it to get rid of any of the pests that may still remain inside. If you have other wood surrounding the area that was also water damaged, or that is rotten, you should replace it as well.
If you have damage in your home from termites, you need to have your home inspected by a professional pest control specialist, then have your home treated for these pests. They can cause a great amount of damage to your home, that you may be responsible for repairing, as most insurance companies will not cover termite damage.
