Bug Killer is one of the popular and most common insecticides used for killing termites. This type of insecticide is sprayed directly onto termite-infested wood and other infested areas where termites have been causing damage to homes and businesses. An insect repellant is a chemical solution applied directly to the skin, clothes, or other materials that discourage insects in the area from jumping or landing on it. The insecticide does not kill the insects, it repels them so they will not be able to reach the area and cause further damage.
A variety of chemicals and combinations of chemicals have been used to treat termite damage. The most common type of insecticide used is the Termiticide, which contains synthetic chemicals that are formulated to specifically repel termites. There are several other chemicals available as well, however Termiticide is considered to be the most effective as far as controlling termites.
Most of the chemicals used to control termites contain at least one Termiticide ingredient. These include: Chlorothalonil, Clothar Termiticide, Tetryon, Mica, Methyl Trisolid, Ethyl Termiticide, Benzyl Termiticide, Bromethophenylamine, Methyl Bromide, Tetrachlorodifluoromethane (TCB), and Butoconazole. Termite Sprays may also contain other chemicals including: Diatomaceous Earth, Hydrochloric Acid, Hydrofluoric Acid, Liquid Nitrate, and Silica.
The majority of insects that are targeted by this insecticide are flying insects such as moths, flies, bees, and mosquitoes. While termites can damage wood and other structures, the insects that are killed are usually smaller than those that are destroying houses and commercial properties. The termite that destroys houses is called a bore bug. Although the termite that damages wood and other structures is called a white-mite, the termite that causes major damage is called a subterranean termite.
For termite damage to occur, some amount of moisture is needed to cause an environment conducive to the reproduction of the termites. It is believed that when there is an abundance of moisture, termites begin to lay their eggs. Some types of termites have the ability to reproduce asexually, meaning that their offspring do not share any of their characteristics with each other. This means that different kinds of termites can produce their offspring without any other termites being affected. and then their offspring produce their offspring.
It is believed that in order to eliminate termites completely from the home or building that has been infested, a Termiticide treatment must be used on all portions of the affected area for as long as it takes for the termites to die off. This should be done regularly. The area should also be checked periodically to make sure that the treatment is being properly maintained. It is recommended that termite control services are used in conjunction with a proper clean-up plan.
