All too often, consumers try to take matters in their own hands even when the solution to the problem is one that requires both expert training and specialised tools. This is very frequently encouraged by the proliferation of DIY (Do It Yourself) kits in supermarkets and groceries dealing with all sorts of things, from an auto glass repair project to one for termite control and extermination. While there are indeed certain things consumers should be able to do by themselves, there are also particular activities that are better left to the experts, not least because doing otherwise may well make the problem harder to solve.

Termite control is just one of those projects that require expert knowhow to pull off. Most of the DIY solutions you shall see for termite extermination are ones that do not really resolve a termite infestation, as they are often focused on killing only those termites you can see and reach—and anyone with a history of working in termite extermination knows that the worst termites are usually the ones you cannot see and reach. Termites live in wood, which means you shall have to tear out your own walls and boards just to access them and apply the DIY solutions like sprays and pesticides sold at most stores. These items also flirt with danger in another way, take note: they encourage the spread of harmful chemicals in an uncontrolled application, as opposed to the heavily regulated and monitored procedure of fumigation used by termite exterminators.

The other problem with homeowners doing—or trying to do, anyway, their own termite control—is that they often end up just disturbing the insects instead of actually taking them out (which is the proper goal). When termites are disturbed, they may enact drastic safety measures to protect themselves and their colony. What does this mean? Simply, the termites move their nest. They start transferring themselves to another location and build fresh galleries, expanding the web of structural damage they have already worked on your house.

This makes it doubly difficult for termite exterminators once you call them in. If a colony is disturbed and forced to move, it usually moves to a more hidden, hard-to-access location. Hence, your termite control specialists now have more work on their hands because the insects’ colony has become much harder to find. They also have to deal with the very real possibility of conducting their investigations all over property riddled with “traps” where termites have eaten through the woodwork and created spots rife with potential for an accident. Obviously, all of this can be avoided if you just leave termite control to trained and certified experts. Not only shall they spare you the work, they shall also assure you of a much more thorough job than you could ever provide for yourself.
