I Found Termites, What's Next?

Termite tubes are a telltale sign of termite infestation

So you're being a responsible homeowner and during your weekly walk-around of your home you see some trails of dirt snaking their way up your foundation. You crack one open and see small white insects running busily back and forth from the ground to your home. Termites. So where do you go from here?

There are two schools of thought in regards to treating subterranean termites: Bait stations like the Trelona ATBS, and creation of a barrier around the home with fipronil-based termiticides. Both treatment strategies have their merits, with bait stations allowing for easy and regular inspections to determine severity of termite activity around a home, and barrier treatments for their "set and forget" nature due to the long-lasting protection modern termiticides provide. Because each home is different, it's important to have a visual inspection before any treatment is done both to properly identify the termite species present and to discuss options with your pest control professional.
