Termite Damage

Termites chew through the wood in your home or office quickly. They leave paths behind them that make it easier for more termites to join them in the destruction of any wood they can find. These bugs reproduce rapidly and form colonies in your home. Some signs of termites include: squeaky floors, stuck windows, and cracks in your wood.

Dealing with Termites

Termites are insects that feed on cellulose, or wood. These pests burrow into walls and structures of homes, which result in damaging major foundations and different parts of your home. Termites are intricately designed to consume tough cellulose materials, but this does not stop them from feeding on anything from books to cabinets. To put it simply, termites are the worst type of pests you could ever encounter. The hole they will eat through your wallet will be bigger than the one they through your home’s structure!

Orange Oil

Orange oil contains D-limonene, which is found in termite treatment solutions. This particular substance eliminates termites by tearing down their exoskeleton and destroying their eggs. Though this substance has a low toxicity level, it is very effective in getting rid of termites. You can use orange oil to eliminate these pests by injecting it into their nests, or ultimately applying it to areas where they usually feed. Repeat the process as necessary.

Salt and Water

Salt is naturally a drying ingredient. Just like baking soda, it has the capacity to dry out different sorts of pests. When termites are exposed to salt, they die from dehydration. Termites does not have the ability to swim in water which, means that you can easily get rid of them by drowning. To effectively do this, all you have to do is fill a jar with equal parts of salt and warm water. Then you can simply flood the termites’ nest and leave droplets in areas where they usually feed.

Borax

Boric Acid is one of the most effective pesticides against pests. It is very much accessible and you can purchase this item from your local store. You should purchase the powdered form for this acid, allowing it to work fine in eliminating your pests. Boric acid negatively works against the digestive and metabolic systems of the termites. Although, this substance does not kill the termites instantly, it’s still one of the best tested and proven ways to eliminate such pests. After the termites have taken in the borax to their systems, it will usually take three to seven days before the population begins to die. This solution is a good option for a natural approach to exterminating termites, considering that it is a natural solution.

Vinegar

While vinegar can be useful for many things in everyday life, it comes as a threat to tiny pests such as termites. Vinegar contains a high amount of acid that comes very effective in killing termites. All you have to do is equally mix vinegar and water together to create a strong compound against these pests. Once done, you can simply inject or pour out this solution to the areas where the termites usually feed or around their nest.

First, let me just say how awesome both Chad and Joe are! Chad knew EXACTLY what type of bug we were dealing with and assured us that he could rid us of the swarming Cicada killers that had taken over our backyard. Joe came out the next day and throughly pumped each burrow with special poison and also treated our entire yard. I could have literally spent an hour talking to Joe, as he is so knowledgeable when it comes to bugs. I switched exterminating companies because my previous company wouldn't treat cicada killers. Thanks guys!

After reading all the great reviews I felt confident in using Go-Forth for my extermination needs. Unfortunately my expectations fell short. First, the technician showed up an hour late, then spent the first 20 minutes of his time on site trying to sell me a service plan I explicitly told him I did not want. Once the technician got to work, the appointment got better. His actual work and application of the product both inside and outside of my house seemed well done, complete, and the technician seemed knowledgeable about specific "areas of concern" for different types of insects and small animals. Unfortunately towards the end of the appointment things went south again when it was time to do the attic. I was assured on the phone by the sales rep that my attic would be taken care of and there would be no issue in doing so. Well the technician refused to do it saying that since it was just beams and not flat boards he was not able to do it. This was never explained to me on the phone or even asked by the sales person. The attic was the largest area of concern for me and the main reason for hiring the exterminator, and it was the only area to not get treated.The appointment ended with the technician taking another 20 minutes trying to sell me a service plan I didn't want, then standing on my driveway for 5 more minutes just smoking a cigarette which he then felt the need to go into my garage without permission and throw it away in my trash can. Overall is was an unprofessional experience and I am disappointed that I did not seem to have this great experience that everyone else did.EDIT: I have updated my rating since the company was very quick to respond and handled the situation in a very professional and appropriate manner.
