    its worth the money to get sprayed. You can try your self but they can do more damage while you wait and see.

    Termites are subterranean - meaning they live under the ground. To kill their nests, you really need a pest control company.

      We used the Taurus because it was cheaper than Termidor, which is what exterminators use. The Taurus did a great job and instead of spending $3000 for Orkin to do it, it cost us under $300 including paying 2 teenage boys to do the trenching around the house.

    we have used terminex treatment every year and we don't have termites in the house any more. You put them out right before fall so when the termites are starting to move indoors it attracts them and they eat the bait. You can get this on amazon, lowes, home depot.

    use a hand pump sprayer, fill it with diesel fuel and spray everything that is wood.
