Benefits of Termite Control 

Termites are a nuisance, and if left unresolved it could cost a lot of money and time to repair the damage. Moreover, some furniture or items that are damaged by termites will be beyond replaceable, leading to significant losses. There is no doubt that some people are more skeptical about termite control due to their lack of knowledge and understanding of the method; however, if left in the hands of professionals, termite control carries more benefits in the long run. Some of which includes:

Reduced damages  

A colony of termites can eat through a foot of wood in just a few months. By seeking out professional termite control, you will be able to eliminate the colony quicker and reduce the damage to wooden furniture at home. This will also lead to lower costs in the long run, as the cost of termite control in Singapore is more affordable than constantly replacing your furniture.

Detecting the source 

With termite control, solving the issue is possible with the help of professionals, who will detect the source of the termite issue quicker. They can identify where the active infestations are, which can prevent further spreading of the termite infestation.

Getting rid of other pests  

As the saying goes, it’s better to “kill two birds with one stone”, and in this case, getting professional pest control will help eliminate two pests (or more) at the same time. Termite control professionals are not only able to detect termites but also other pest issues that you are facing at home, such as:

● mosquitoes

● cockroaches

● flies

● rodents

Is Termite Control Safe? 

Termite treatments are safe as long as it’s handled by professional and certified pest control. You can be rest assured that before the termite exterminator proceeds with the termite treatment, everyone in the household is made to leave the premises. The professionals will observe standard safety procedures thoroughly.

The treatment involved during termite control is a dusting process that involves careful placement of termiticidal powder onto the tracks of the termites. Then the termites will bring this substance to the location where the colony is inhabited, affecting the entire territory.

Can the Effects Be Maintained?   

Termite treatment effects can be maintained up to 5 years depending on the following condition:

● The degree of infestation severity

The duration to eradicate the colony of termites depends on how severe the infestation is and how large the settlement was. A highly skilled termite control professional who uses the proper treatment will be able to solve the issue seamlessly.

● Home Environment

If your home is inaccessible in certain areas with wooden components during treatment, the termite treatment will be ineffective. The set-up of your home plays a vital role in the durability of the treatment.

Prevention Tips For Termite Control 

It is always better to be able to prevent termites from invading our property, hence here are a few tips that will help if your home has wooden objects and you are worried about termites invasion:

● Remove Excess Moisture

Moisture is one of the main elements that attract termites to your home, especially in Singapore’s tropical weather, where the humidity is high. Invest in a dehumidifier to reduce the level of dampness in your room. Turning on the air conditioner for a short period of time will also help as it will cool and remove excess moisture in your home.

 Remove Any Clutters

Clutters prevent you from keeping track of what you own at home. By decluttering, you can stay organized and identify a termite issue quicker if there is one. Get rid of any old items made of wood, and do not move any items that termites have already infested to a different space in your home to prevent it spreading further.
