Getting rid of termites may be tempting if you have never dealt with them before. But unless you are a licensed contractor with an arsenal of special tools and expertise, DIY remedies are probably going to cause more harm than benefit.


When To Call An Exterminator


If you suspect your home has a termite infestation, it's time to call an exterminator. Termites are often difficult to spot, and it can get much worse if you don't take care of your pest problem quickly. Call a professional if you suspect termites in your home. They can tell you if the condition is serious and what to do next.


Here are three signs that indicate your house may have a termite infestation:


1. Termites are present in or near your home. You'll be able to see them if they're swarming around the outside of your house or if they're inside, like on furniture or in walls.

2. You notice wood damage in previously untouched areas by termites or other pests. This could include holes in floors or walls, cracks in wood flooring, etc.

3. You see mud tubes running across walls and other surfaces—this is usually a sign that there are termites in your home!

How Long Until Termites Are Eliminated?

Termites are a real problem. They can wreck your home and cost you a lot of money to get rid of them. Knowing the duration it takes to get rid of termites is essential. The first thing that you should do is hire a professional exterminator. They will know which methods work best to get rid of the termites. They must also have the right equipment to do the job correctly.


It could take anything from one day to many months to completely eradicate the termites, depending on how extensive the infestation is. A professional exterminator is advised if you want your home or place of business to be back in order as soon as possible because they can get rid of all of them fast and effectively without causing any issues to your property!

Are There Termite Control Options Besides Exterminators?

There are options besides exterminators for termite control, but we still recommend using a professional because they have the experience and knowledge to know what to do. They also have the tools and equipment needed to do it right. Many people try DIY methods like diatomaceous earth or boric acid—but these methods can be tricky to use correctly (and don't always work). And even if you can get them right, you won't have access to the equipment and expertise of an exterminator who's been doing this for years.
