To know whether your house has got a termite infection, sometimes is very easy and sometimes it is very difficult. We can say it is good news as well as bad news.

Sometimes the “termite colony” can be seen immediately when they enter your premises. Unfortunately, in many cases the termite starts infecting your house without being exposed or visible to you. They silently enter from your electrical conduits, plumbing pipes, or from inside your walls and directly attack the wooden structures furniture in your house.

Many homeowners ignore when they detect some termite infection in their houses. Ignoring the infection of termite can cause you heavy financial damage and health issues.

INSPECTION OF THE SPACE INFECTED WITH TERMITE IS IMPORTANT.

As I have already mentioned that the termite infection starts on the ground floor, so when you detect any infection of termite on your first floor or higher floors, it is clear that there is a termite infection on your ground floor.

Start the treatment from the Ground Floor.

The treatment of termites should always be done from the ground floor, or if you have basements in your house, they should be done in the basement especially. This is so because termite colonies are always there on the earth or soil.

Steps to do the treatment:

1. Drill on Floor and Walls

Drilling is the first step for starting anti termite treatment. The drilling needs to be done near the walls. This is so because the termite colony moves along the walls. The drilling can be done on the floor or in areas just above your skirtings. The drilling must be done in such a way that the chemical should be able to reach the maximum depth of your building. After you inject the anti-termite chemical in the holes they will gradually perculate and spread to the floor of your house or premises.

The holes must be drilled in a gap of 2 to 3 feet. The gap can be calculated depending on the intensity of the termite infection. If the termite infection is mild you can make holes every 3 feet. When the infection is intense or high the drilling can be done every 1.5 to 2 feet.

2. Making Anti Termite Chemical and doing the treatment.

The anti-termite chemical must be used as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Here in this blog, we are recommending “Imidacloprid“. Imidacloprid is one of the safest anti-termite pesticides for humans. There is a very little risk while using Imidacloprid for humans. But it is better to be safe than to be sorry. So I suggest you take all precautions while using this chemical and doing the treatment. Imidacloprid 37 to 40% is a good choice. Mix the chemical with water as per the manufacturer’s instruction. Take the chemical in your pump. Now start pumping the chemical inside the holes you have done by drilling. One very important point here is that , you have to do the chemical pumping multiple times in every hole. While you are pumping the chemicals in the holes the chemical will start oozing out. So as soon as the chemical starts coming back, you can stop pumping and start pumping in the next hole. Please repeat this process multiple times in all the holes, so that sufficient chemical is injected into the hole and then which in turn will reach into your floor area.

When you are using Imidacloprid, as your anti-termite chemical you will start seeing the result in the next 7 days. You may feel that the chemical is not working immediately. It takes approximately 7 days to show the results. But the results will be permanent and long-lasting.

3. Seal the holes with white cement or cement putty.

After you have sufficiently injected the chemicals in all the holes, you can leave the holes open for a day or also you can seal the holes immediately with white cement or cement putty. Clean the area thoroughly so that you do not leave marks of white cement or cement putty,

Now you are done with your treatment. If done nicely without leaving any area untouched, we can expect that the termite attack will not happen for the next 5 to 8 years.


Treating Mild or Small Termite Infection.

Sometimes we experience mild or very little termite infection in our premises. When you are sure that the infection is mild or small you can follow the following process to do the treatment.

  • Find the hole from where the termite is coming.
  • Drill that particular hole slightly wider around 6 to 8 mm.
  • Prepare the anti termite chemical as per manufacturers instructions.
  • Pour or pump the chemical in the hole you have done.
  • Seal and cover the hole with white cement or cement putty.

By doing this treatment we can protect ourselves from any future intense infection of termite.

Termite is a massive damager and can give you major losses. I would like to recommend not to take any terminate infection lightly. Rather get the anti termite treatment done immediately.

This article has been written to help the readers to do the termite treatment themselves if they don’t have any professional facility or service available in the area. Doing anti termite treatment may be a cumbersome and hard work. This may not be a Do It Yourself (DIY) for many of us. If you can afford, hire a professional Pest Control Agency. In some areas, professional Pest Control Services may not be available.

My only suggestion while getting the anti termite treatment done professionally, kindly ask your agency to use Imidacloprid for doing the anti termite treatment. This is one of the most effective chemical I have experienced. However, there are many other anti-termite chemicals available in the market and your professional agency maybe knowing more about this. So please talk to them and try to understand the advantage of any other chemical they are recommending.

Would like to caution you, that the anti-termite or pest control agencies try to use cheaper chemicals to make more money. The cheaper chemicals are less effective and your termite treatment may not be as effective as we expect them to be.
