Termites are of great value in nature as they help break down cellulose and create rich soil. Fallen trees and old logs are broken down into nutritious soil enrichments. But when termites get near or into our structures, they must be controlled. Termite extermination is a $2 billion industry in the Unites States alone, according to researchers.
METHODS OF TERMITE EXTERMINATION
Termite extermination methods depend on the type of termite. For subterranean termites, extermination methods include use of liquid soil treatments, wood treatments, or baiting systems. Termite extermination for drywood termites, which live above the soil in warmer climates, includes use of fumigation or spot treatments of the infested and endangered wood.
