Salem Pest Removal Tip:

Can I Use Vinegar to Get Rid of Termites?
If you suspect that there is a colony of termites that invaded your house, you need to consider this as a serious issue. Perhaps the best solution is to hire the assistance of the professionals. They will be conducting inspection of your house before they perform the necessary treatment. However, there are still some homeowners who will try to resolve the problem on their own. Understand that this can be a risky move and can increase the related hazards.

Using Vinegar to Deal with Termite Infestation
One of the more popular home remedies in getting rid of the termite would be vinegar. It contains acetic acid that may dissolve the covering of the termite that will cause them to lose moisture. Let us find out how to use this treatment and if it will be an effective solution.

Locating the Termite Infestation
Inspection of the different areas of your house is always the first step in treating the infestation. This will help you determine a lot of things such as the type of termite, the level of damage, and the size of the colony. Some of the signs that you need to look for include the mud tubes, nests, and termite galleries. You should also stay alert on the sign of termite frass that will appear like saw dust. A tiny hole close to the termite dust can also be an indication of an active infestation. If you have a mature termite, you may also discover shed wings close to the infested area.

Treating the Infested Site with Vinegar
There are different natural methods that you can use to deal with the termites. However, understand that this will not be as effective as the chemical treatment conducted by the professionals. Vinegar treatment is not only eco-friendly, it is also convenient to use. It also does not have any adverse reaction towards your health. There are four ways on how you can apply the vinegar as a termite solution.

1. You may combine the vinegar with olive oil.
2. You can also mix it with lemon juice.
3. If you don't have olive oil or lemon juice, you may dilute the vinegar on water with a ratio of 1:1.
4. Finally, you may also use this product in its purest form.

This method is effective to use against the termites that are already visible. If you use this frequently, it may also prevent the other insect from infesting your house. You should spread this on the corner of your house that is valuable against termites. You may also inject the vinegar mixed with lemon juice on the affected area.

There are various ways to apply the treatment. You may place it inside the spray bottle and spray it all over your house. You may also drill a small hole and inject it with the solution. You can also soak the wood with vinegar. You may additionally apply the solution using a fabric cloth. With the antibacterial property of vinegar, it will also kill the harmful microorganism.
