Q&A Home

Andrew from Canton Ga writes,

My house is on a concrete slab and is about 12 yrs. old. We have been in the house about 8 yrs. and have been...

using the Spectricide termite stakes around the house. I worry about cracks in the slab under the carpet, wood flooring. Am I safe using these stakes?


The stakes are safe to use, but they are not a professional solution and are not strong enough to adequately protect your home. 

You should perform a liquid termite treatment in the ground to get the termites where they are entering your house.  To perform a treatment just as a professional company would do, please read our How To Do A Termite Treatment Article which explains exactly how you should treat your home properly.  Doing a treatment like what is described in the article will not only take care of existing termites that you have, but it will also protect and prevent future termites from entering for about 7 years.
