Termite Control for Homeowners
Written by a homeowner and tailored for homeowners - Includes general termite knowledge helpful for preventing termites from attacking your properties, and our newly invented termite control method based on US patent. Our new method allows you to construct termite detection stations onsite using readily available materials and is faster, more effective and more reliable than any existing methods. More
This book is arranged into two parts. The first part will present general termite knowledge. Knowing termites is a key to prevent termite from attacking properties and to catch early signs of termite infestation to avoid severe property damages. In the second part of this book we will present our newly invented termite detection and baiting solution based on a US patent we obtained in 2015 - Ruan's Termite Solution(R). It allows you to construct termite detection stations onsite using readily available materials, no devices to buy. Only when termites are detected you will need to buy a type of chemical to destroy the termite colonies; that chemical costs a little more than $20. Compared with other existing termite baiting methods, our method is faster, more effective and more reliable.
Termites cause billions of dollars of property damages each year in the United States alone. The first reason is that homeowners often lack of termite knowledge and termites always hide from us, it often happens that termites cause severe damages to houses before homeowners even notice. The second reason is that termite control is difficult. For subterranean termites, that is the type of termites causing majority of property damages, they nest deeply underground where you will not be able to reach and find. Although many people might not see termites, the fact is that termites live in the yards of many American homes, and surely in the yards in other countries.
The existing termite control methods for subterranean termites include barrier treatment that block termites to enter your house and termite baiting methods with objective of killing the termite colonies before they enter your home. The existing methods all have shortcomings. Barrier treatment is more costly and not environmentally friendly. It pours lots of chemical around your house. The existing termite baiting methods are not as effective as homeowners would have hoped. Using the existing termite baiting devices, it is commonly believed that it will take 4 months for termites to find the devices or the devices will never been found; even after termites found the devices they might not feed on the devices continuously; and also the poison used in most of the devices will kill only those young termites and will not affect termite already grown-up. Those shortcomings of existing termite baiting methods make them not as reliable as needed. In this book, we will explain in details why our new invented method can overcome all those shortcomings.
We hope that after reading this book, readers will have a correct understanding of termites and know the ways to deal with termites. Also reader will be able to use our new method for detecting and eliminating subterranean termites by themselves with minimal costs. And the result is much better than using other existing termite baiting devices.
