Termites could be happily living in your home eating your timber and wood away. For them, it doesn’t matter where they are getting their next meal from, but it does matter to you. Untreated termites have the ability to literally eat your home away and leave you with another but debris instead of your beautiful home where you once lived with your family. To help prevent this from ever happening to you, here are 7 proven termite treatments with which you can control termites in your home:

Pre-treatment – If you are building a house, then it’s possible to take some termite control measures in the initial stages. Pre-treating the soil or building a barrier under the foundation to avoid the soil and wood coming in contact.
Baits and Barrier Treatments – There are several termite baits and barrier systems available on the market. Invest in quality products to eradicate termites.
