The experts said that these particular termite treatments are the most effective to kill termites. It is also said that these bait traps offer less environmental damage, and it is safer even for the interior. You can kill the whole colony if you using this method. The bait trap relies on the termite to get in contact with it and then redistribute to other termites.
The bait can either be food or liquid chemical. If it chemical, it contains active compound Hexaflumoron. If it has eaten it can kill termite within 8 weeks. In those weeks the termites will change their skin, but later on, they won’t be able to form skin again. After that, the termites will experience dehydration and die.
Borate is a chemical that is used to kill termites. It is common and applied directly to the wood as your home is being built. Along with spraying on the foundation decks and the work floor. Because it was done when the building was built, this method doesn’t need drilling, and won’t affect any activities you do. It is also known to give maximum protection due to spraying borate can be done in all areas.

The chemical used is slow action termiticides, which are effective to kill termites by attacking their nervous system.

This is the last termite treatment that can only be done by experts. This system is done when the building was in progress. PVC pipes are planted into the ground around the building foundation. The pipe is used to make an anti-termite pathway that you can inject with chemicals any time in the future without the need to drill the floor again.
