Termites are some of the most destructive pests that you may find in your garden. Not treating them properly can lead to total loss of lawns and flowers, and in severe cases, can even cause damage to outdoor furniture. Since they are a problem that can occur all year round, they need to be dealt with immediately when they are noticed.
Harvester termites can destroy a healthy-looking lawn and plants overnight. The most difficult part of controlling termites is that you must rid your garden of colonies of potentially millions.
If you notice bare patches on your lawn, or plants dying, it’s time to start looking for termite activity. Take care not to confuse shade problems, dry patches or diseases for termites in your garden. If you are unsure in any way what might be causing these issues, rather call our experts at Lawnpro.
Methods that Lawnpro uses to control harvester termites
We use the most effective insecticides available to control Harvester Termites. From our years of experience, we know that you can only control termites, depending what you see when you are ready to do the treatment. It is therefore almost impossible to go to a nursery or garden centre to purchase products yourself and hope they work, since specific solutions will need to be applied.
Termite nests can be as far away as 500 meters from where the damage is noticed and nests could be as deep as 14 meters, so controlling these terrible plagues is not as easy as it may seem, and random treatments are almost always ineffective.
Before our teams at Lawnpro apply any of our secret formulae, we first do a complete site inspection to look at a couple of aspects, including:
- Current activity;
- Where the nests are located;
- Damage and how fresh the damage is;
- Time of day.
Only once this is done, the specialist will decide on the best action to take.
This may include the following:
- Applying a liquid termite insecticide to the holes that he noticed;
- General application over the entire lawn and flower bed area;
- Drenching holes and nests using specialized equipment;
- Applying granular baits.
So, don’t waste any time and money risking your lawn’s inevitable destruction.\ when we have a working solution for you.
