There are 4 general ways to rid yourself of termites. 1. Liquid Termite Treatment-liquid termiticides are sprayed in and around yourself to kill and repel any termites that come into contact with them. 2. Termite Baits-The other major way to kill termites which are placed around your home to kill off a colony by spreading some amounts of pesticides throughout the workers. 3. Borate Termite Treatment-Borate treatments are applied directly to the wood in your home, similar to a coat of paint. This best time and easiest to be accomplished is when the house is first constructed. 4. Fumigation-A method that only works on a specific species, the drywood termite which is most common in the Southernmost States.
