Liquid vs Baiting Termite Treatments

We don’t take a one size fits all approach to termite management. Both liquids and baiting systems have their pros and cons and we use them both depending on the situation.

LIQUID PROS:

When applied correctly, they work really well to keep termites out

Long lasting with many lasting up to 5 years

Apply once and done

LIQUID CONS:

Labor intensive

Can require damage to some landscaping right around the structure

Requires a lot of pesticides be placed around the structure

Does not address termites in the surrounding area, just those that try to enter the structure

BAITING PROS:

Less labor intensive

Less pesticides

Can address and eliminate colonies of termites in surrounding areas

Does not require trenching around the structure

BAITING CONS:

Requires constant monitoring $$$

Is not quite as fool proof as liquids in eliminating and preventing termites

Slower to eliminate issues

Can I treat my house for termites myself?

Though many have attempted DIY remedies for controlling termites, it’s always best to consult with an expert. Termites aren’t always visible, and the extent of the damage they’ve caused is rarely obvious. A true pest control specialist will be able to provide the insight you need to scale the damage, and make recommendations for mediation.

What is the most effective treatment for termites?

Treatment recommendations for termites depend on the structure and situation. There may not be a one-size-fits all treatment, but a quality liquid termiticide treatment applied correctly could be effective. Properly installed termite bait systems are also potential solutions for mitigating an infestation. 

The pest control experts at Thorn can make recommendations for your home during your inspection and consultation.

What is the average cost for termite control?

Thorn pricing for termite control can vary depending on the type of structure and the extent of the infestation. Treating the foundation and interior walls of the average home may run between $1,000 to $3,000. If you need to have your home audited, the experts at Thorn are ready to help. Contact us for pricing today.

What attracts termites in the house?

Wood sources, especially wet wood sources, are commonly the cause for termite infestations. If you have a chopped or decaying wood pile near your home, tree branches draping across your roof or siding, or thick wood mulch against your home’s foundation, you may accidentally be inviting termites to the party. Gutters and downspouts clogged with branches and leaves can even draw termites towards the home. 

Additionally, termites are also drawn to nest in foam insulation, so if you find them beneath your siding, they may be burrowing towards the wood of your exterior walls. Our termite control experts can help you identify problem areas during a termite inspection.
