Determining A Termite Problem

The vast majority of termite activity will go unnoticed until it is too late. This is why keeping an eye out for any signs and symptoms is critical for staying pest-free. Pay attention if you:

  • Spot a flying termite swarm in or around your property. 

  • See fine sawdust piles, sometimes called frass, piled up around the home’s doors, windows, and floors. 

  • Find tight-fitting entry points, especially doors and windows. 

  • Discover patches of what looks like ‘water damage’ in the home. 

If you suspect that a flying termite swarm is around your home, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Keller’s Pest Control right away.

Why Termite Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Is A Bad Idea

Although many homeowners have tried it before, getting rid of termite infestations on your own isn’t a good idea. Below are some of the most common ways people attempt to do this:

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) termite products may be effective in some cases. However, their high concentrations can lead to serious health problems and other considerations. 
  • DIY sprays like vinegar or essential oils may help to reduce your risks for infestation, but they will rarely if ever will be enough to eliminate established termite colonies. 
  • Some DIY controls simply do not work at all, including old wives’ tales found on the internet. 

Many DIY termite products are not enough to eliminate pests without additional help. For this reason, it is recommended that you rely on professional protection.
