How to Get Rid of Formosan Termites: Effective Termite Control and Extermination
Termite control and extermination methods have improved over the past few decades, with the number of products and application techniques more than tripling in the last ten years. If you need termite control or extermination services for your Charleston, South Carolina home or business, it’s important to choose the right pest control company and warranty.
Conventional Liquid Treatment for Termite Control
Conventional liquid treatments are a popular choice for termite control. In the past, termiticides had a strong odor that could be detected by termites, but today’s products, like Termidor termiticide, are odorless and undetectable to termites. Termidor is effective for both preventative and remedial treatments and is long-lasting. It has proven to be effective against Formosan termites, with a reduced application label that requires less product to be used.
Termite Bait System for Extermination
Termite bait systems use a slow-acting insect growth regulator that disrupts termites’ normal growth. These systems take advantage of termites’ behavior and biology and are installed around the home’s exterior perimeter or building structure. The bait, made of paper, cardboard, or sawdust-like material, contains ingredients that kill termites. As the termites feed on the bait, they spread the insecticide to other colony members, including the king and queen.
However, there’s no guarantee that termites will come across the bait station while foraging for food. The baiting system requires regular monitoring and maintenance to be most effective.
At Barrier Pest Services, we offer Advance Bait Systems in conjunction with an exterior Termidor treatment for homes or structures with inaccessible crawlspaces or slab foundations. This two-fold treatment is recommended when a complete liquid treatment is not possible due to construction design.
