Why Professional Termite Control is Better than DIY
Every year, termites cause an incredible amount of damage to residential and commercial properties across the United States. It’s impossible to arrive at a precise monetary figure for the destruction termites create, but it is estimated that the annual toll is well over $5 billion in property damage. Termites flourish in warm weather and are commonly found throughout the State of California. This means that your property is vulnerable to infestation.
Termites are a serious threat to your home. They’re difficult to detect because they generally spend their time eating away at wood that is out of your sight. By the time you see any damage, it’s likely that you have a serious termite infestation.
When termites have become a problem for you, you may be tempted to try home remedies or do it yourself efforts to eliminate the infestation, but you should really trust licensed termite control professionals. The benefits of hiring a professional for termite treatment far outweigh any potential cost savings that you may have by trying to get rid of the termites on your own.
There are several reasons for working with a professional termite control company to eliminate a termite infestation:
Trying to eliminate a termite infestation can take up a lot of your time. If you’re a busy person, this can be a real problem. While you’re researching do it yourself remedies and shopping around for chemicals, sprayers, masks, gloves, and any other items you may need, the termites are continuing to eat the wood in your home. The damage from the infestation will grow worse the longer it takes you to decide on a course of action.
Once you’ve contacted a termite control company, their technicians will respond quickly and will inspect your property to see the extent of the infestation. Once they’ve made their inspection, they’ll map out a plan of action to eliminate the infestation. In addition, they’ll be able to explain to you the entire process of getting rid of the termites as well as treating your home to keep the termites out.
Let’s assume that you’ve done some research and have decided to go the way of do it yourself pest control. In addition to any chemicals you’ll need, you’ll also have to determine if you have the equipment required to apply those chemicals. If you don’t already have all of the different pieces of equipment needed, you’ll have to purchase them. This could include sprayers, drills, and injection equipment. In addition, you’ll need safety equipment to protect yourself from the chemicals. This will include coveralls with attached boots, a disposable dual cartridge respirator for organic vapors, a pair of nitrile gloves, and safety goggles with indirect vents for complete protection.
By the time you’ve invested in all of this equipment, the cost may be considerably more than the cost of hiring a termite professional. In addition, termites may have caused more damage since you may not have been able to completely eradicate them. This could cost you more in repairs to the damage caused by the termites.
Termite professionals receive rigorous training in order to provide the best level of protection for your home. They know how termites behave and how to find them. They have the knowledge and experience to recommend the best solution for your termite problem, and they have the equipment to handle the infestation no matter how severe. They know their trade and they don’t have to rely on trial and error to fix the problem.
A knowledgeable and experienced termite professional will apply all the tools and strategies required to completely eliminate the infestation. In addition, they’ll make sure that your home is protected from future termite problems. In other words, with treatment by a professional termite control company, you’ll know that the termites are gone and won’t be back.
With a do it yourself approach, you may not be able to get rid of the infestation completely. This may cause you to repeatedly purchase chemicals because you’re not confident that the situation has been completely handled.
