Pest Control Methods For Termites

Termite infestation is one of those annoying problems that most homeowners in Myrtle Beach detest the most. One of the primary concerns about termites is that people have no idea that they have this problem until such time that many parts of their house have been damaged and eaten by these pests. Termites could negatively affect the structural integrity of a house and may lead to expensive damages as time passes by.

Common Methods Of Termite Fumigation The most drastic measure used to treat a termite infestation is a substance called Vikane, a type of gas used while tenting the home. Basically, this means that your entire home has a special “tent” sealed around it and the Vikane gets pumped in while large fans circulate it around the air. The entire home is fumigated under the sealed tent structure for one day. On the second day when the tent is removed, the home will be left to dry out. You’ll be able to return to your home on the third day. You may have concerns when using termite fumigation treatment, but the gas does not stick to surfaces in your home, including furniture, and the minute amount of gas left in the air after drying out the house has been shown to be safe for us to breathe.
