If you were to google termite control you’d find a seemingly endless list of concoctions that supposedly put an end to the termites in your home. People recommended soaps, essential oils, even the little silica ball packets that come inside a brand new purse. While those do-it-yourself tips may have worked once or twice (thus beginning the lore that exists around them now), none of them are the ideal way to eradicate termites from your home. Just as in much of life, the cheapest and easiest solution is not generally the best or most effective one.

We’ve been in this business for a long time, and in that time we’ve collected a list of commonly asked questions and frequently held fears about fumigating. Most people have driven by a house or a business that is covered from top to bottom in a colorful tent. You know that house has some kind of pest problem, but how much do you know about the process?
Did your mom say it to you when she put you to bed at night? You know the saying, “goodnight, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite.” We all know about that much about bed bugs.
