Solution to termites

Well, nobody likes pests in their homes I can certainly tell you that. Yesterday I saw ants scurrying across the room. I am a neat person and I really hate these pests! Good thing that I do not have any real problems with other types of pests such as rats, cockroaches or termites. Those things would be a nightmare if they are left running around the house, no doubt. So I decided to take care of the issue of pests in my home once and for all by looking up information on pest control services on the Internet. I did stumble across this Terminix Ultimate Protection for solution against pests which I strongly feel is for me. I will certainly give it a go in order to get rid of the pests infesting my home.

    I had a termite inspection that found termites in the exterior wall of my garage. A very prominant pest control company wants to charge 1300+ dollars to treat and protect at $225 each year after. I am not discarding the fact that they are experts, but I am wondering if there was a less expensive solution. Thanks

    Will an electronic pest repeller completely remove pests from my home. The pests i really need to get rid of is bed bugs.

    I have a few citrus trees, lime, honey bell, and red navel that are getting eaten up. We are all organic with them so I need something that will get the pests off and is eco friendly…?
    obviously i know about poison…i wanted to know if anyone had anything they had tried that worked…i.e. home remedies (like the lady bug thing mentioned)…ect…

    I have just rented a property, and got the tenancy contract registered also.
    I have noticed that there are termites in couple of door frames.
    Is it a bad omen… I have heard people saying that termite should not be in home.
    Now as I cannot vacate the premises, due to the contract, how can I find a solution to this / how I can kill termites.

    Is it better to get the house sprayed – or go the baiting (sentricon) route? I have swarmers coming out next to my back door and I am worried that the house is infested.

    Drilling chemicals or baiting termites or commercial forms of removal are not ultimate solutions to termite problems. The presence of termites is mostly today due to human encroachment on insects and animal habitats. Do we have better ways of preventing their invasion of homes without having to pay for spraying or drilling with chemicals. Surely there must be some friendlier way of handling this. Bear in mind there is no home without papers or cellulose bearing materials!! ARE we stuck with the fumigators????!!!!

    Hello I’m new at growing flowers here and was just wondering how to get rid of most pests for sweet pea sprouts/flowers in a non-hazardous way.

    I found a small catapillar eating one of them. What else could be eating them? They are being eaten off at ground level, like cutting down a tree. How can I keep pests away?

    I have a millitary macaw in a large cage inside my house and I went out of town for the weekend and when we came back there was a million of small (tick looking)flying black pests in his cage. They migrated to my pantry, we cleaned out the cage and the pantry and thought they were all gone, until last night we come home and they are in his cage again. Same food (frozen 3 days before we give it to him from the store). He doesn’t go outside.

    I am having issues with large crickets and saw a mouse in my window well outside. I am already thinking of getting a small dog like a Shih-Tzu, Maltese, or Dachsund in the next year but wanted to know if any small breed dogs have instinctual skills to kills pests other than the American Rat Terrier.

    Thank you!

    I found a few sources claiming peppermint oil is one of the best options for pest control, specifically ants. I plan on trying it soon, but was curious if it works for other pests – most importantly, spiders and bees.

    Thank you for your help.

    I have a serious issue with drainage at the side of my house (water is hitting the house directly). The suggested solution is to concrete the area, and install a drain along the wall. The only problem is that the weep holes will be closed off.

    To rectify the issue people have suggested creating new weep holes on the bricks above with a concrete bit – will this work/be acceptable?
    Thanks for your answer – unfortunately im restricted by a retaining wall and plumbing work, so i cant dig down any further. If i add more weep holes only one brick up you’re saying its still a problem???

    The joist is in the upstairs bathroom/ downstairs kitchen ceiling. The source of the leak has been fixed. I already have the ceiling ripped out and have to cut out some of the sub floor in the bathroom. How can I fix this to prevent further rot and provide a solid foundation for me to install a tile floor in the upstairs bathroom and a ceiling in the downstairs kitchen? I have heard of a term called “sister joist.” What is this and do I need to create one to fix my problem or is there a better solution. I don’t want to do the job half-fast. I want to make a permanent fix that will last forever so I don’t have to worry about it. Thanks for your input.
    The joist is about 8″ long. The wood rot goes up about 2″. The rotted area is about 8″ across on the bottom of the joist. So there is about 6″ of “good wood.” It appears to be just on the surface. Will the spray on treatment work for this? If I cut out the 8″ section an put a 2×8 inch piece of wood on the joist, secured with carriage bolts, would that work, or is this considered Jerry-rigging it?
