Our team at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control understands that your home is important to you, and that you want to keep it in the best possible condition. If your home has a termite problem, it makes sense to want to take care of it quickly, but our team also understands that you may want to avoid using harsh pesticides as much as possible. If you are looking for natural termite control services, our team can provide them. In this article, we’ll provide a brief overview of three natural termite control methods you can employ to help prevent infestations and damage.
- Sunlight. One tool that we at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control use for natural termite control is sunlight. Like vampires, termites avoid direct sunlight, as exposure to it can kill them. If you have termites in a piece of furniture, you can place it in an area that gets full sun to kill the pests before they can spread elsewhere.
- Borax. Another tool you can use for natural termite control is sodium borate, also known as borax powder. This compound is most commonly used as a cleaning agent but can also be used effectively to kill or repel termites. You can sprinkle the powder directly on an affected area or make a solution with water and spray it. This method can be used to kill termites, or as a preventative measure to repel them.
- Nematodes. A third method of natural termite control is to use nematodes. Nematodes are tiny, parasitic worms that feed on termites, so releasing them into a termite colony is an effective way to take care of the problem. You can find nematodes at many pet stores, and they pose a danger only to termites and not to your family or your home’s structure.
