stations all around the perimeter of your house. In order to attract the termites all the
bait stations will have a wooden base. Slowly when the termite activity increases,
replace the wood with the poisonous baits. Thus the termites that visit the baits will
not only feed on it but also carry the food back to the colony. This will in turn help
you to eradicate the entire colony.

 Barrier Treatments: It is one of the cheap options but no doubt a very effective one.
This treatment requires you to apply barrier products. The result, however, is not
immediate. It acts as a moat that safeguards your house from the termites. How it
works is that, the termites that enter the termite affected area receive the lethal dose of
the solution. Then the poison is passed on to other termites that they come in contact
with and then they die.

 Get assistance from a licensed professional: If you find that the termite problem in
your house is beyond control then you can hire the services of the professionals in the
industry. Do not compromise on quality for the sake of saving money. Always hire the
reputed company for the service.
These are few basic termite tips that you need to keep in mind if you want to
eliminate the termite infestation problem in future.
