There are several different methods of termite control in Peachtree City, GA and elsewhere that can be employed to eliminate termites from your home and keep them out. A company providing quality termite services will likely have all of the following termite control methods available:

Liquid Foam Treatment

This type of termite control involves using foam to deliver termiticide (the pesticide used to eliminate termites) to the heart of termite colonies. The foam reaches areas traditional liquid treatments cannot, thereby enabling it to reach the core of the colony to eradicate it.

Dry Foam Treatment

Like liquid foam treatment, dry foam treatment is also used to deliver termiticide to pests. However, dry foam treatment can expand and fill cracks, crevices, and voids in wood where termites like to hide. Like the liquid version, this kills termites immediately when it comes into contact.

Baiting and Monitoring

This type of termite control involves providing a toxic food source in an effort to eradicate the colony. Some sources include bait stations that contain wood and other food material that is eventually replaced with bait containing a slow-acting toxic chemical. Other sources include wet cardboard traps stacked on top of each other and sprayed with boric acid that help to dehydrate the termites, thus killing them. The effectiveness of this method is measured via monitoring and regularly installing bait stations around your home.
