About termite treatments safety
Naturally, when using pesticides in your home to get rid of termites, the safety concern of the chemical use is a top priority. If these chemicals are applied by a professional, they will pose little or no threat what so ever to the inhabitants.
Safe termite killer
Nowadays, termite killer products are considered a low threat to humans and mammals and they don’t release fumes or an unpleasant smell.
Many older products can represent a threat for people who have asthma.
Many people treat their homes using soil termiticides as a precaution. The inhabitants of the house must evacuate it while the termiticide is applied to the ground floor of the building and around it. The chemicals will enter the soil making any future infestation impossible. The chance that the chemicals will reach any groundwater system is weak. After a some years, only a small dose of the termiticide used will still be in the ground.
Fumigation is another way of getting rid of termites that have already infested your house. To carry on this method you must cover the house in a rubber tent and then release toxic chemicals inside. After that, the tent must be sealed and the inhabitants of the house will have to find accommodation for about a week’s time. The third day after the tent has been taken down and the house has been aired, you and your family can return to it.
If the scale of the infestation is reduced, you may treat the area injecting it with chemicals. This way, you don’t have to evacuate the house and it is highly doubtful that anyone will come in contact with the chemicals.
