3 Best Termite Treatments

Home Improvement

There are many different species of household pests. Rats, mice, and roaches can carry disease into a household. But termites can be the most dangerous because they can eat at the structure of the house, making it unstable and capable of falling in on the family living in it. What is the best termite treatment in Peekskill, NY? That depends on which termites are present.

Underground Termites

Subterranean termites live in hives underground. Like ants, the termites will spread out from the colony entrance in search of food. The area they live in needs to be damp to keep the termites moist. The best way to control subterranean termites is to limit the amount of wet wood near the ground. Any structures should be raised off the ground on some kind of concrete foundation. Even firewood should be lifted up on a stone or metal rack to keep the termites away. If there is a colony, it is most often treated with poison distributed in trenches that are dug around the colony. This poison not only affects the termites that pick up the bait, but they carry it back to the colony, where the rest of the termites are affected.

Wet Wood Termites

Wet wood termites are most often found in wooded areas that are high in humidity. The colony is in constant motion, always looking for new sources of food. These are the winged termites that can fly from one wood source to the next. In most of the country, moist wood termites will set up a colony near a house and build tunnels to the wood inside. To prevent the workers from drying out, mud tunnels are built in any exposed areas, offering a visible sign to their presence. The workers will eat at the wood structure and carry the pulp back to the colony to feed the queen and the nymphs. Most treatment plans will use poisons that the workers not only eat, but carry back to the colony. This two-fold approach kills the workers, drying up the food supply for the rest of the colony.

Drywood Termites

Drywood termites are prevalent along the southern US border. As the name implies, the drywood termites do not need as much moisture as the other types of termites. These are also the most destructive species because there are usually no trails or signs of a colony. A pair of termites will chew their way in, close off the hole, and start laying eggs. That is why many communities require home builders to use treated lumber that kills the termites as they burrow in. Once the colony has set up in the walls of the homes, the house needs to be tented and flooded with poison gas. If the colony has just begun or is limited to one area, the surrounding wood can be treated with a pesticide injected into the wood that kills off the adults.

Termites are very destructive creatures. When planning the best termite treatment in Peekskill, NY, homeowners should think about eradicating the colony as well as preventing another one from forming.
