Q&A Home

Edward writes,

A couple of days ago I was repainting some baseboard molding and when I pulled back the carpeting I noticed...

several winged termites walking around. My question is, would trenching around my house with Dominion still be an effective method to eradicate them, or is it too late for that since they have already established a colony in my house? If so, what method should I use? Thanks


It is never too late to treat your home for termites.  You should do an outside perimeter treatment with Dominion which will take care of any termites that may be in your home if they entered from around the outside perimeter.  In addition to treating the exterior of the home, you should spot treat any termites that you know of directly with the product from a 1 gallon hand pump sprayer.  You would pull the carpet back again and spray the termites directly where they are so it is sure to touch the termites.  You should read our How To Do A Termite Treatment article for instructions on how to perform the outside perimeter treatment.
