How to Eliminate Termites

Serving the Southeastern United States

Checking for termites in Georgia and Tennessee by Lookout Pest Control

Imagine coming home from a long day at work, only to find that your home has been invaded by termites. Termites are silent destroyers, and they can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home without you even knowing it. If you see termite droppings, termite mud tubes, damaged wood, or shed wings, there are a number of strategies you can try to get rid of them – some more effective than others.

You probably have questions about how to eliminate termites. We have answers. Let’s discuss some of the most popular ways to get rid of termites.

Can You Eliminate Termites on Your Own?

DIY termite control is possible, but it’s difficult. Termite nests contain thousands of individuals and eliminating all of them takes persistence. Also, they tend to make their nests deep within your walls, so it can be a challenge to find them.

DIY termite control often leads to incomplete results, so when you think the problem is solved it really isn’t. This gives you a false sense of security, and it gives the termite colony a chance to regenerate.

There are many types of pest problems that are worthwhile to attempt to solve with DIY methods, but if you have termites, we always recommend hiring a professional termite exterminator. Given how difficult it can be to get rid of them, combined with their potential to cause major structural damage, working with a trusted pest control company like Lookout Pest Control is the safest choice.

Types of Termites Found in the Southeastern United States

Our region is known as one of the worst in the country when it comes to termite activity. Three termite species can be found in the Southeastern United States area:

  • Eastern subterranean termite
  • Formosan termite
  • Drywood termite

Each requires a specialized strategy, which is one of the reasons why DIY termite control is often inadequate. A professional local termite exterminator will be experienced with these different types of termites and able to design a termite control plan that’s right for your property and situation.
