Termites are very dangerous pests that can destroy millions of dollars of property every year. They not only eat wood but also damage books, papers, insulation, swimming pool filtration, liners, and even eat trees and bamboo. They can attack any house and/or plant at any time. It is very important to know how to get rid of termites. You need not be worried about this. I am telling you how to get rid of termites when termites become active.
Before knowing how to get rid of termites, you should know about their characteristics. In spring, between March to May they become very active. At this time we can see them flying. Then they start making new colonies and start breeding. They try to find a warm and humid atmosphere. It is essential to know about their presence as early as possible. When you see winged termites inside your property, consider it as a warning sign of a massive attack. Winged termites and ants are very similar. They look like large ants. But we can identify them by their straight antenna on their head and also with equal length wings where ants have elbow angle antenna and unequal length wings. You will see them flying around bright light sources. They are attracted by bright light. You also can see them flying around doors and windows. They create mud tubes for safe and comfortable movement. Mud tubes are signs of potential termite infestation. If they attack any wooden furniture then damaged surfaces will be visible. You might see very thin sheets of wood-like papers around the infested area. San Antonio Termite Control
What to do When Your House Is Termite Infested? Getting rid of termites requires some specific knowledge. If you know those techniques, then you can try to remove termites from your house by DIY. For fighting with termites you may require a special type of masonry drill, soil treatment rods, large capacity tank, pump, etc. The large capacity water tank is required because sometimes it requires hundreds of gallons of water for proper treatment. My suggestion is to hire professional people for getting rid of termites forever. You may try as DIY, only if the attack is small.
