How do termites treatments work humanely?
Termite treatments from Home Shielders work humanely by using ultrasonic frequencies. It’s well known that small critters, insects including termites and other mammals dislike ultrasonic frequencies.
We use this to our advantage with our range of termite treatment products. Not only should they prevent termites nesting in your property, they can also prevent mice, rats, opossums and other critters too!
How long will these termite control products take to work?
The time it takes for these termite control products to work depends entirely on how established your problem is. If you’re looking for prevention rather than cure, they should begin working right away.
If you’re tackling an infestation, our termite control products should begin working immediately but might take a week or two to take effect. If termites are established, it can be a challenge to encourage them to move.
Customers have seen marked improvements within 14-28 days though.
What do termites eat?
Termites love to eat wood and other products containing cellulose. As American houses use a lot of lumber, termites naturally gravitate to our properties in search of a free meal.
How else can I prevent termite infestation on my property?
There are practical measures you can take to prevent termite infestations on your property.
They include sealing cracks and crevices so they can’t get in, installing bug screens over vents, reducing dead lumber in your yard to remove food sources, keeping firewood away from your house to discourage movement, and monitoring wooden areas of your home for termite activity.
What DIY termite treatment is best?
Home Shielders believes prevention is better than treatment, DIY or otherwise. That’s why we stock a selection of automatic termite prevention products that any DIYer or homeowner can use.
They require no power tools, no mains supply, no special equipment and no special treatment. They also contain no harmful chemicals that can hurt your children or pets either!
What are the signs of termite activity?
There are several signs of termite activity to look out for. They include discolored or sagging drywall, crumbling wood, wood that sounds hollow when you rap your knuckles on it, squeaky floorboards, insect patterns left on floors or walls, tiny holes in bare drywall, peeling paint, buckling floors, and doors or windows that begin to stick or won’t close properly.
While all these could be caused by other things, they will warrant a closer inspection to prevent further damage.
Alternatively, use one of our termite treatment products and avoid property damage altogether!
