Should You Try DIY Termite Control?

In the modern digital age, it’s easier than ever to find information about any topic you can imagine with a simple Google search. Unfortunately, pest control advice that can be found isn’t typically very sound and may cause more headaches than it is worse. If you are considering DIY termite control, here are some of the reasons it may not be the best idea.

Expensive Costs

While it may seem more cost-effective to try DIY termite control, the cost of treating your own home can often become very expensive. Without the proper knowledge of where and how to apply treatments and the potential damages that can occur during the process, you may be looking at a hefty bill without the results you are hoping for. However, when you partner with Emtec Pest Control, your initial inspection is FREE.

Potential Dangers

Depending on the treatment you opt to use, there’s a chance that you will be dealing with dangerous or hazardous chemicals that could affect the health of your family or pets. Most pest control treatments will have a label that explains this, but it can be hard to read if you aren’t an experienced pest control technician. Don’t risk the health of your family or pets with DIY termite control treatments that may or may not get rid of the colony.

Limited Effectiveness

At Emtec Pest Control, we use the Sentricon® System exclusively to effectively deal with termite infestations. Most DIY termite control solutions come in the form of a spray or dust that must be applied to cracks or lead to the removal of walls. To ensure your termite treatments are as effective as possible, it is important to team up with an experienced termite control provider.
