Termites Infestation

What must I do?

When you discover termites in your house, it’s crucial to act promptly to prevent further damage. Here’s a step-by-step guide on what to do:

  1. Don’t Disturb Them: Avoid disturbing the termites or the affected area more than necessary. This includes refraining from knocking down their tunnels. Termites are likely to move to another part of your home where they might be harder to find if their current location is disturbed.
  2. Don’t Spray or Burn with Fire: Many have the urge to spray the termites using aerosol or burn the termites with fire. We know you are concerned with the infestation but, if that is what you plan to do, please refrain. It is not a good idea at all – so Don’t Disturb Them.
  3. Temporary Measure – Using damp newspaper as a temporary measure to attract and trap termites can be a strategy to consider if you’ve detected termites in your home. Newspapers are rich in cellulose, which is appealing to termites, and when dampened, they become even more attractive as termites are drawn to moisture. This method might help localize termite activity, making it easier to treat the infestation more effectively.
  4. Take Photographs and Videos: We need to know what species are the termites to ascertain effectiveness of our termites treatment. So it is best if you can snap close up photographs (macro) and videos. It would be better if you can capture the soldier termites. Do not worry – just take many shots will do.
  5. Contact Malaysian Pest Control: Termites are not pests that can be effectively dealt with using DIY methods, especially if the infestation is significant. It’s important to contact a professional pest control service that specializes in termite extermination. They can perform a thorough inspection, identify the extent of the infestation, and recommend an effective treatment plan. So, professional help is needed. Reach out to us below:
