Houston's Complete Guide To Effective Termite Control

If you could see how many subterranean termites we have in Houston, you would be shocked. An average termite colony can have tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of individual termites. When termites come into your Houston yard, they come in large numbers. But you won't see this invasion. It will happen right under your nose—or more specifically, right under your feet. You can have millions of termites in your yard and not know it. You can also have millions of termites feeding on your home and not know it. We don't say this to scare you. It is a fact which every Houston property owner should be aware of. If you don't take serious consideration of this threat, these tiny insects can eat you out of house and home. Today, we're going to give you everything you need to know about effective termite control so that you have the information you need to protect your equity.

What Works To Control Termites?

When it comes to protecting your Houston home from termites, there are three ways to go. You can select a liquid termiticide solution, a bait solution, or both. If you want complete, effective termite control, it is best to go with both. Liquid termiticides provide a barrier around your home that will arrest infestations before they begin, and bait stations provide easy termite monitoring.

Liquid Termiticides

Not all products are created equal. When selecting a product, it is best to choose one that has a transfer effect. What is a transfer effect? In the past, termiticides were toxic chemicals that termites crawled through, picked up the active ingredient, and died as a result of exposure. This material was detectable to termites, and they would sometimes find pathways through the chemicals to get to structures that had been treated. This is not the case with modern termiticide technologies. Companies like Termidor have developed termiticides that are undetectable to termites. When termites pass through them, they don't know it. These exposed termites share the active ingredient with other termites and one by one they are exposed. With Termidor, the active ingredient works to prevent termites from molting and leads to natural colony elimination. This makes their products much better for the environment.


There are many termite bait products on the market, but not all baits are created equal. Some work far better than others. The idea behind bait is that worker termites are attracted to the bait, feed on the bait, and share their fluids with other termites—thus transferring the active ingredient. One by one, the termites are exposed and this leads to colony elimination. But not all baits are created equal. Some work far better than others. The baits that work well are able to provide protection for your home, but they work best for monitoring. They make it easy to check for subterranean termite activity. This is a big deal as it can be very difficult to detect these insects otherwise, especially for individuals who do not have training in termite habits, habitats, and biology.
