Can I Get Rid of Termites On My Own?

The Downsides of DIY Termite Treatment

A termite infestation can be difficult to get rid of on your own. Many homeowners go through a difficult process of DIY extermination only to find that they were unable to fully eliminate the colony from their property. Fighting them requires more than simple DIY solutions, such as essential oils and vinegar. Professional, efficient extermination with proven methods is the best way to eliminate termites – for good. Here is a look at three reasons that DIY termite extermination is often ineffective, and why professional help can make the biggest difference.

  • Visibility

A termite nest can be hard to spot and give off few signs of infestation. By the time you notice them, they could have been in your home for years.

  • Size

A termite colony can sometimes contain millions of termites who do not need the queen to be alive to reproduce.

  • Complexity

Even a professional exterminator may need to use multiple methods to eliminate this pest from your home.
