I'm sorry to say this and mean no dis respect...you had better find some one who knows what they are talking about. Sure sevin will destroy termites that come across it. Then remaining termites will warn others to stay away from that area. Understand, termites live in subterranean colonies that can be very deep, many old mine shafts are homes for them. They go up to get wood (cellulose) and bring them back to feed lava that is constantly revolving. You must destroy the colonies.@yolos wrote:Well my pest control guy came out today and looked at my bed that is now termite infested. He said to just do nothing. WHAT. I kept asking him and he kept saying do nothing. He said they would move on or eat the wood and then move on. I told him doing nothing was not an option. So he then said to remove the wood and replace it with treated lumber. I asked him if there would be termites in the soil and he said yes. I asked him how to get rid of the termites in the soil and he said use Sevin dust. So I guess I will follow this course of action but not use it for a veggie bed but a flower bed this year. Maybe line the wood with plastic if I want to plant veggies in it.
Termites are widely regarded as a damaging pest to have in your home or business. Termites (sometimes known as ‘white ants’) can cause extensive damage to the structure of a building if they are not inspected, managed or treated by qualified termite control professionals.
Termites will feed on wood 24 hours-a-day. That means a termite infestation can quickly turn into a major problem. As their presence dates back 120 million years, termites are survivors and extremely difficult to exterminate without professional expertise.
Whether it’s your home or business premises, it’s likely to be your biggest investment in terms of money, sweat and tears, so naturally you want only the best provider for all your termite control needs.
