Other people want a non-chemical solution applied to stop the onset of a termite infestation. Whatever your preferred strategy, we at Termite Byte Forest Lake can ensure that you have a termite treatment that suits your needs.
– What We Stand For –
There is a wide variety of different termite treatment solutions that can be applied. Some are preventative measures. Others are reactive treatments to ensure that termites cannot cause further damage. Whatever the solution, we have a wide range of treatments to protect your home from these troublesome pests.
Termite Protection Barrier
One of the more effective means of preventing termites is to erect a barrier around the foundations of your Forest Lake property. By doing this, you can ensure that your property does not suffer the detrimental impact of termites. A barrier is typically made from a steel or plastic sheet. This is placed into the soil around the perimeter of your home. A chemical solution is applied to ensure that any termites are repelled by the barrier. This is a very efficient means of stopping termites from entering and destroying your home in Forest Lake and a popular termite treatment strategy.
Bait is one other termite treatment strategy used. This is where a number of stations are applied to the perimeter of your property. This makes certain that that the termites are attracted to the bait as they believe the source of food lies within the bait. They ingest the chemicals from the timber contained within the bait. They then return to the colony and infect the other termites within the nest. This ensures that all termites are effectively eliminated without having to disturb the earth around your Forest Lake property. Baits should be installed that do not disturb the nest or colony of termites. Once disturbed, termites can enter your property. Once this happens, they can be difficult to remove. So, bait ensures that the termites are not disturbed, and nothing ‘unusual’ occurs. If a termite colony is disturbed during the baiting process, they will disregard the the bait. They will then find alternative sources of food. This may be within your home, or at another point on the outside of your property.
If a termite colony is disturbed, continuing treatment can be difficult. The key is to ensure that you are getting your property inspected by a professional company that offers termite treatment in Forest Lake. That way, you can be rest assured that the process of eliminating termites goes without a hitch.
Chemical Termite Solutions
Chemical solutions can be a highly effective way of killing a termite colony. Chemicals are applied to the soil around the perimeter of your property in Forest Lake. The chemicals penetrate the soil in which the termites flourish within. Once the the chemical has been ingested by just one termite, they then spread the toxic chemicals out to the the rest of the colony. This guarantees a quick and efficient eradication of the infestation. You can be rest assured that at Termite Byte, the chemicals we use only have an impact on termites. They are human and pet-friendly, so you don’t have to worry about putting your family in danger.
