Call a Professional for Termites

There is no way you can treat termite infestation with home remedies. I know from personal experience. When we lived in the south we had termites. We saw them swarming in a bathroom. My husband "treated" them and we were sure they were all dead.


About two years later, we saw them again and had to call in a professional. Unless you have seen the damage termites can do, you can't believe it. They had destroyed an entire outer wall. The 2 x 4's crumbled like tissue paper. It ended up costing us way more than it would have if we had called a professional in the first place.

Western Exterminator Company did a great job with my house and I highly recommend them!

Amen! And if you find out a next door neighbor has them be sure to immediately call an exterminator because those little buggers travel underground and will eventually make it to your home :-(


Alternately, if you have them and even if you had an exterminator come in please forewarn you neighbors. My last house got termites really badly and couldn't figure out where they came from. After complaining to my neighbor about them they told me that six months before they had to have their home exterminated. The company we hired told us that exterminating a building and even yard doesn't catch them all and those that survive move on.
