Now you have a Termite problem or termite homes around the house. You are probably over your head with this one and don’t even know where to start. Although most homeowners do not consider it a pest but to an exterminator it is. These tiny little insects are everywhere and if you have them in your home they will most likely end up damaging your walls and flooring.
Because these are minute bites they can live outside of the home and many times they are a direct cause of more damage. Just walking through your home and you will most likely find yourself with a bit of a nasty bite. You could have an entire hole in your wall or ceiling or even have the living room ripped apart.
There are quite a few things that you can do to help fight back against the massive swarms of these flying, crawling insects. Since most of these are female, they would love to lay eggs so you need to kill them before they even get the chance to lay their eggs.
The first step is to thoroughly clean the inside of your home and any other room that have insect life. This includes taking out any food or crumbs that they may have left behind. Next you want to disinfect the area and remove all of the remaining insects.
Pouring a strong bleach on the area and then vacuuming away the debris should help remove as much as possible. The next step is to remove the crumbs and other small particles. You can use a wire brush and scrub it up using just water and some water based products. Make sure that you wipe away everything that you can and try to keep moving if you have to because the last thing you want is for something to be stuck in the crevices of your carpet.

After you have done this you can use any of the other pest control methods available. There are many different ones that you can try. You can use bleach, poison bait, oil and sodium bicarbonate. I think the best is when you mix it all together and then spray it over the entire area.
After you have done all of this you can then remove as much of the moisture as possible. The moisture from the ceiling, walls and floor can make it more difficult to remove the large bugs that are laying eggs. That is why you want to spray over it and dry as much as possible.
When you get to the exterminator, you want to have some of these tips ready. You want to be able to have what he or she wants you to have. You will not want to have everything spelled out for you and not know what you are supposed to do.
