What is termite & how to get rid of Termite?
Termites is an insect, we can called Most Destroying Pest. These are often called the Silent Destroyer because they may be secretly hiding and thriving in your home or yard without any immediate signs of damage. All termites consume cellulose-based plant materials.
Unfortunately, all homes, regardless of their construction type, can provide cellulose food for termite infestation. They mostly damage paper, fabric, wooden material in our home & offices. Three of the more common home-invading termite species are Eastern subterranean termites, Pacific damp wood termites, and Southeastern dry wood termites. Termites range from 1/4 to 1/2 an inch in length. Because Termites mostly live underground and in the walls of your home, you are unlikely to see the termites themselves.

- Termite Ceiling inside Damage
- Termite Wall Damage

Since you likely will not see termites, look for these signs:
- Termite droppings, which look like small, ridged, wood-colored pellets.
- Mud tubes on exterior surface (pictured to the left).
- Wings all of the same size (look like tiny fish scales) shredded near an entry point to your home.

Termite Control/treatment : Call : +91-9870275169
- There are two major methods for termite control. You can use liquid termite insecticides (termiticides) for barrier or soil treatment or termite baits.
- Termite Chemical Treatments for Termite Control
Barrier termite treatments are designed to prevent termites from entering the structure. These treatments will prevent termites inside the structure from getting to the soil to get the moisture needed to survive.
Chemical to spray for Termites
The technology of non repellents such as Taurus SC is an advancement over other termite insecticides that are only repellent barriers such as Talstar P, Cyper TC or Permethrin 36 %. With termiticides, the smallest of gaps in the treated soil can be detected and exploited by the termites to gain entry into the building.
In certain areas of the country you may encounter different types of termites, such as Formosan, damp wood, dry wood, etc. If your home is infested with one of these termites, it may require different or more extensive treatment procedures including wood treatment and fumigation.
- Construction Considerations in Termite Control
- Changing the soil along the foundation such as digging or removal of treated soil can encourage termites to your home.
- Disturbing the termite treatment may void any termite warranty that you may have on your home.
