Termites? 7 Reasons to Hire a Professional Exterminator

I think I have termites, should I hire an exterminator?

A termite infestation is bad news indeed for any home or commercial building with wooden construction. If not caught and dealt with early enough, serious damage is almost inevitable.

It is a big mistake for a homeowner or commercial property owner to think that once you’ve identified the problem you can simply use a few chemical sprays to solve it. Dealing with termite infestation is a job for a professional exterminator/pest control company, and here’s why.


An experienced pest control professional knows the common areas where termites may be lurking hidden both inside and outside of your home or building. They can spot the local signs of infestation which most people cannot. This expertise in termite removal enables them to fully remove the termites throughout the entire property. Not removing all of them means the infestation can appear again.


Unless an infestation is completely cleared, products purchased by the homeowner can easily make the situation worse. If you try to remove termites with the wrong products which will not solve the entire problem, the pests can spread and flee to the treated areas.


The products which are often needed to do a thorough job can be dangerous for humans and pets as well. Professional pest controllers have the right equipment, products, and experience to treat your home safely.

Identifying The Source

Experts can identify the main source of a termite infestation and remove the hive to prevent the insects returning time after time.

Choosing the Right Exterminator

Choosing the right exterminator will suggest ways of making your home and yard less attractive for new colonies. They will also identify possible problems in neighboring properties.
