How to get rid of termites

A word of caution:

Certain types of termite infestations are difficult to treat and ineffective consumer grade solutions can prolong the infestation and contribute to further damage to your property. If you have ground (subterrandean) termites or drywood termites, be sure and contact a professional as oon as possible.

We recommend consulting a professional before attempting a do-it-yourself solution.

A Natural Solution:

A natural way to try and get rid of termites is to purchase beneficial nematodes. Nematodes are worms that are used to eliminate garden pests by burrowing into them and causing them to die. You can purchase beneficial nematodes online or at your local gardening supply store.

If termites have infested a specific piece of furniture, an easy way to kill them is to expose the item to sunlight. Termites flourish in darkness and the light will kill them.

With large infestations: especially those involving the walls and beams of your home, it is best to call a professional.
