Different Types of Termite Treatments
There are treatments for termite control that do not use chemicals or the application of insecticides. Here are some popular treatment methods.
- Create a physical barrier, which you can do during construction as a preventative measure.
- Use steel mesh and sands of particular sizes as physical barriers.
- Biological control agents, like types of fungi have demonstrated some success.
Since these treatment methods do not use chemicals or insecticides, so they are not regulated by the EPA.
The EPA reviews and studies the selling and distribution of insecticides. They determine whether or not the chemical in use poses an unreasonable risk to human health or the environment. Once a product is deemed safe, then it can be licensed for use when done in accordance with the label directions.
When a pesticide is used for the prevention, control or treatment of termites it is called termiticides. For the most part, only a trained professional can use this sort of product. So that is why it is important to get in touch with a pest control expert. We know how to safely handle and use this insecticide.
Two common forms of treatment are conventional barrier treatments and termite baits. Some approved treatments for termite control includes:
- Termite baits
- Wood treatments
- Liquid soil-applied termiticides
- Building materials impregnated with termiticides
Conventional Barrier Treatments
The soil-applied barrier treatment is the most common technique for treating termite infestations. However, it is important to note that termiticides used for barrier treatments must be specifically labeled for that use. Because if you conduct this treatment incorrectly, it can cause contamination throughout the home and even in the drinking water wells. And it will not even protect against the termites. So this is why you need to contact the pros, like us, to help you with the termite control treatments.
