Best Termite Spray

The main thing to know about termites is that they are a persistent insect guided by something called “swarm intelligence.” Swarm intelligence is the collective consciousness of certain insects like bees, wasps, and ants to run organized colonies.  Termites are actually part of the Hymenoptera class of insects, relating to bees and wasps. A typical colony can have thousands or even millions of termites, including nymphs (immature young), workers, soldiers and queens which, lay large amounts of eggs – thusly completing the replication cycle.  Termites can be very very difficult to totally eliminate from your home or yard. 

We promote a variety of pest control on our site.  We have selected the best termite spray available for the different jobs required to eliminate termites and carpenter ants from your home in a do-it-yourself fashion. 

Two of our best-selling control products of all time are the Spectracide 53370 Termite Killing Foam and Termidor SC Termiticide. Each of these products have slightly different uses and can work for slightly different types of infestations. Spectracide 53370 Termite Killing Foam works best for use against smaller infestations and Termidor SC Termiticide is best for larger infestations. The foam is the best pesticide to use inside a building and comes in a large 16oz spray can that treats a very large area. The liquid is better for use outside and can also work as a protection against future termite invasions. Both of these products are great in their intended purposes. If you are suffering from an infestation that is both inside and outside, often the use of these 2 products together is the best course of action.

Spectracide 53370 Termite Killing Foam

This foam is great for spot treatment of small infestations. It kills the termites that are exposed upon contact. That means that any termites that are visible will die as soon as this is sprayed on them. It has a specially made nozzle that can reach into places that are more difficult to reach. Therefore, if the termites are hiding in a tight spot you can spray them immediately. The best termite spray is one that is clean, quick and effective. If the termites are not exposed, the foam will expand when it is sprayed so that it can sink into the crevices of the wood to reach those termites that are hiding. Spectracide 53370 Termite Killing Foam can be used inside or outside. It is safe to use indoors because it does not stain furniture, walls or other surfaces onto which it is sprayed. As an added bonus, it also kills carpenter bees. Remember, the reason why this is effective in killing termites is because it is a poison. Follow all of the safety steps listed on the product. Keep away from children and animals. Always store in dry cool spaces.  The best termite spray is dependent upon your ability to analyze the situation and apply common sense.
