Not all termite treatments are alike. There are several options, each correlating to a specific type of termite and infestation. Aloha Termite & Pest Control in Wahiawa, HI, has been the island’s preferred exterminator since 1999. These specialists deal with all types of pests, including termites, roaches, rodents, fleas, bed bugs, and ticks. Here, they explain the three main types of termite treatments available.
3 Options for Termite Treatment
1. Ground Treatment
Ground treatment is specifically designed to kill ground termites, also known as Formosan subterranean termites. It also protects your property from further infestation. Aloha Termite & Pest Control uses Termidor®, which is the best termiticide on the market. Termidor’s kill rate is six times that of other baiting systems. Furthermore, Termidor keeps your home termite-free for at least five years.
2. Tent Fumigation
When you think of termite treatment, tent fumigation is probably what comes to mind. This form of termite control is most effective when treating drywood termites. It involves covering a structure with a tent or network of tarps. Pest management specialists then fumigate the building from the inside out. The fumigant travels through the home, entering cracks and crevices. Everyone must vacate the premises for at least 24 hours during tent fumigation.
3. Furniture Fumigation
Drywood termites may also burrow into wooden furniture. Luckily, a technician can safely remove the pests with a spot treatment without damaging your furniture. However, keep in mind that if your furniture has been infested, it’s possible termites made their way into the piece through tunnels in an adjacent wall or floor. The pest control specialist should inspect the home to ensure there’s not a larger infestation present.
