How to Get Rid of Termites

Portland OR - Beaverton OR - Lake Oswego OR - Vancouver WA

Termites are a very dangerous pest when it comes to your home. They’re known as “silent destroyers” and for good reason. The damage caused by these tiny pests typically goes unnoticed by homeowners until it’s advanced too far. In fact, it’s estimated that termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage each year– which is generally not covered by homeowner’s insurance. 

How to Remove Termites

Once spring arrives, termites will emerge in search of new mates and new places to establish their colonies, which unfortunately may be your home. 

If you’re dealing with termites, you’ll need to identify the type of termites you have, locate the source of the infestation, and eliminate it. If the infestation is in it’s beginning stages you can try natural methods to control it such as:

  • Vinegar
  • Borates 
  • Orange oil 

But because termites are notoriously difficult to eliminate, it’s best to work with a pest control professional. They will be able to inspect your home, identify the severity of the infestation, and recommend a personalized solution. This can include:

  • Tenting
  • Bait stations 
  • Insecticides
  • Aerosol sprays
