Hi, friends. I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida, and I've been asked how to kill termites in wood. Well, what I have in my hand here is a piece of wood that you might find within your home or structure. And, if you take a look at all the damage done on the side of this, this is what termites actually do to your home. Now, once the termites are in the wood, a lot of people think 'Well, I have to either get to that wood to treat it, or do some other method of treatment.' Well, there are a couple things that you can do to try to get rid of termites in the wood of your home. Now, one of the products that we like to use is a product called Termidor. And Termidor is a great product. In fact, if you take a look at the product right here we have, Termidor is a great product that you can use. You mix it with water and you spread it around the outside of your home. And Termidor is very effective, that, even if the termites are in the wood inside the home, they're going to come back out and they're going to find this particular product, and it's going to go ahead and protect your home for about seven to ten years. Very, very effective. And, once used by a professional, you can count on it being done right. So, getting rid of termites, very, very important. Or the wood that we showed you just a moment ago could be your home. I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida, hoping you have a pest free day.
