Using Termite Control Tactics On Your Property

If you are a new homeowner, and you suspect you have a termite problem or someone indicated there were termites on your property in the past, you want to take steps to keep these pests away so they do not cause damage to structures present on your land. There are a few termite control actions you can take outdoors to help keep these pests at bay.

Have A Pest Control Agency Take A Look

If there are any worries about pests being present on your land that could pose a hazard to your home or other structures, it is best to have a professional take a look. A pest control service will send a worker to your home to assess your property for signs of termites. They will also be able to tell the extent of the problem and whether action needs to be conducted immediately to thwart termite numbers. They will provide you with recommendations to kill off existing termites and keep new ones from congregating upon your property.

Try Using Beneficial Nematodes

Nematodes are small, wormlike insects that do not pose any risks to your property or home. They can be purchased from a pest control service, or via farm supply or garden shops. Sprinkle these creatures upon your soil in areas where you have noticed or suspect termites are present. They will wriggle their way underground and eat termites they come into contact with. This is a wonderful way to protect your property without the risk of adding harsh chemical agents to keep pests from getting out of control. Nematodes can be added anytime during warmer months of the year and work well at keeping termite populations at a minimum.

Use Bait Traps Around Your Structures

If you want to keep termites away from structures on your property, you need to provide a barrier of protection around each structure's perimeter. This can be accomplished by inserting tube bait traps into the ground, every few feet around buildings. These tubes are placed far enough into the soil where termites can access the bottom portion, while the top part is left in view. Bait is placed into the top portion. It slides toward the bottom, where termites can get to it. They then bring the bait back to their nests. After termites in the nests eat the bait, they will soon perish. This procedure is easy, clean, and can be performed multiple times to eliminate termites in the area. To learn more information about termite control, reach out to companies such as TRS Exterminating.
