Don’t spray discovered termites with fly spray
The first reaction that most people have when discovering termites is to reach for the fly spray. A quick squirt with kill all the ones you can see quickly. Then as almost a second though they call a pest company.
This is not good for the following 3 reasons:
- The chemical in fly spray is a repellent. It actually repels the termites away from the area. Clients often report that they seem to have moved on, but the opposite is often the case.
- A termite colony can start at 500,000 individuals and in some species the numbers can build up to 2-3 million. So, spraying a handful of termites is not an affective way to treat them, as they will simply bob their heads up somewhere else.
- Once termites have been sprayed it can make the technicians job harder. Chemicals that are typically available at supermarkets are repellents. Our techs will often have to search over the walls and other areas to find an uncontaminated area. In the worse cases they may have to come back in a few weeks once they have settled down.
If you discover termites in your home, stop what you are doing and call a pest control company immediately.
