Q : We have what appears to be a localized infestation of termites in the walls of our main bathroom. Is it reasonable to think we could use some baits outside and foam inside the walls to eradicate this? Or can we only use an exterminator to do the job? If so, what would be the most effective means to do so?
A : A do it yourself treatment will help you save a lot of money rather than hiring an exterminator to complete the job for you. All the products that we carry are the same professional grade products that professionally licensed pest control operators’ use. As long as the product is a registered product in your state, you are able to legally purchase the chemicals for personal use. When an active infestation is spotted chemical treatment is always recommended. For outdoor treatment, trenching would be a preferred method. For indoor treatment, spot treatment with in the wall void areas would be highly recommended as well. After the chemical treatment has been finished, installing bait stations around the home would be a good follow up treatment to keep track of the termite activity in your area.
