If there are any pests you don’t want to see in your home or yard, termites are at the top of the list. This destructive pest can cause thousands of dollars in damage and create an unsafe environment. While we recommend choosing to work with a professional for this pest, there are some natural ways to get rid of termites.
Natural Ways to Get Rid of Termites
Nematodes are parasitic worms that happen to eat termites (among other garden pests). Simply release them in an infested area, and let them munch. The nematodes will reproduce, helping reduce your termite population. However, if your infestation is large, the nematodes won’t be able to keep up with the growing colony.
2. Sodium Borate
Borax powder, also known as sodium borate, can be used to kill termites. Sprinkle the powder around the affected area or mix it with water and spray. Reapply the solution periodically.
3. Vinegar and Lemon Juice
Add lemon juice to half a cup of vinegar to create an acidic spray. Spray directly on termites to kill them on contact. While it solves the immediate problem, seeing a termite, you won’t get to the root of the problem: the colony.
