First thing’s first: Hire a professional. When faced with pests, many people tend to try and resolve the problem on their own. And while this may work with certain types of pests, the termite is not to be trifled with. Termites may be the most difficult pest to eradicate, therefore it’s important to fight them with someone who knows what they’re up against. The worst thing that can happen if you mismanage a war against roaches is you will end up with more roaches. Termites, on the other hand, threaten the very foundation of your home. Mismanaging a termite infestation could mean astronomical amounts of money dedicated to repairing your house.
