Termites and the damage they leave behind are a major problem for many homeowners across the United States. And once these pests get their foot in the door so to speak, they are hard to get rid of. Here are some of your best options in trying to eliminate them.






















The thing you need to keep in mind with using this method is that you must treat the ground around the entire home. Spot treating will not work as the termites will simply go around it. Termite treatments generally last upwards of 5-7 years.

Who Do You Want To Call?


Protecting your home from subterranean termites is something that will need to be done by a professional who has the tools and chemicals that are necessary. This is not something a homeowner should attempt on their own.

So, this leaves you with a choice between a company like Terminix or Orkin, and a local pest control company. This is where you are going to want to do a little homework. Let me explain why.

Orkin and Terminix are large companies that are all across the U.S. and they do good work. Their prices are also more expensive on average than your local pest control company. But, these companies do a good job of guaranteeing their work.

What To Look For

Where this becomes an issue is if something goes wrong. Pest control has not always been an upstanding industry. People and companies go like the wind. You may get a great deal, but you may never have it backed up if there are future problems. I'm not saying this is true with all pest control companies, but it is something for you to consider.

With that said, you should always be able to get a 1 year warranty that protects you against termite reinfestation.

Some companies will also have an additional maintenance contract you can sign up for. Now, I'm not a big advocate of service contracts because most of the time they are just scams, but this is one area where you may want to seriously consider getting it if it is available.

Eliminating subterranean termites is not difficult with the right company doing the work. By thoroughly checking things out you can be assured of a termite free home for years to come.
