Termites And How To Treat Them Powered By Docstoc
					Sometimes, termites pop up when you least expect them, and they are one of the
worst pests when it comes to damage. They are extremely destructive and eat away at
wood and furniture in ways that are often indescribable. So how do you go about
getting rid of termites? There are a few ways: pesticides, isolation of the infested spot,
and an exterminator. When you decide on a method for getting rid of your insect
problem, you need to think about what will be the most efficient and economical
means of eliminating these termites.
  First of all, when you think about how to treat your problem, it's important to
determine exactly where the infestation is taking place. If your termite problem is in
furniture, you can simply take the infested possessions out and get rid of them or
isolate them while you apply pesticides. Furniture is actually one of the easier
situations to treat termites as they remain cloistered in this situation. You can also
simply destroy the furniture if the termite infestation has damaged it beyond repair or
treatment.
  Secondly, you might want to just try pesticides on the infested areas. When it comes
to a termite infestation, they tend to remain in areas of dark, damp wood, so you
would probably be able to isolate the areas where they have taken up residence. In this
case, you could simply close off the area while you treat it. This is important so that
no one is exposed to the harmful chemicals which are contained in termite pesticides.
As long as the area is closed off and the pesticides are applied correctly, your problem
with termites should go away fast.
  Finally, you can also just call an exterminator. This is definitely a fast and effective
way to eliminate a termite problem. Sometimes termites are resilient and won't go
away even after a strong treatment, so it may take more than one application of
pesticides and extermination treatments in order to get rid of them for good. The main
thing is to keep at the problem until they are gone. If termites have taken residence in
the walls or foundation of your home, an exterminator will more than like be
necessary to fully get rid of the problem, simply because termites are just so stubborn
about leaving sometimes. However, it may be that you can also treat them on your
own or use a combination of treatments.
