The most effective corrective treatment 

Every time we conduct a free termite inspection for our clients, they frequently ask us a common question: “Which termite corrective treatment is the most effective?” or “What is the best treatment option available?” We understand your concern and are committed to providing the best treatment solutions to completely eradicate termites from your home or business.

Both chemical barrier treatment and baiting system treatment are effective in controlling termite infestations, but the most effective treatment may vary depending on the specific situation and the extent of the infestation. Here’s a breakdown of their pros and cons:


Chemical Barrier Treatment

Chemical barrier treatment is highly effective in creating a protective barrier around the property. It provides immediate protection and can prevent termites from entering the treated areas. It can eradicate existing termite colonies and prevent new infestations for an extended period, often ranging from several years to a decade, depending on the termiticide used.

Pros Cons
Provides long-lasting protection: Chemical barriers can provide protection against termites for several years after application. Requires drilling and trenching: Chemical barriers require drilling holes and trenching around the foundation of the building, which can be invasive and time-consuming.
Suitable for pre-construction and post-construction: Chemical barriers can be applied during the construction phase of a building or after construction is completed. May require reapplication: Over time, the effectiveness of chemical barriers may diminish, necessitating reapplication.
Forms a continuous barrier: The treatment forms a protective barrier around the entire structure, preventing termites from entering.

Baiting System Treatment

Baiting system treatment is also effective in eliminating termite colonies. It relies on the termites’ natural feeding behavior to spread the toxic bait within the colony. When successful, baiting can lead to the complete elimination of termite colonies.

Pros Cons
Eco-friendly: Baiting systems use minimal chemicals and are considered environmentally friendly. Takes time to eradicate the colony: Baiting systems may take longer to eliminate the entire termite colony compared to chemical barriers.
Targets the entire colony: Termites carry the bait back to the colony, affecting the entire termite population. Requires regular monitoring: Bait stations need to be regularly checked and maintained by professionals.
Less invasive: Bait stations are discreetly placed around the property and do not require extensive drilling or trenching.


So, how do I know which corrective treatment to use for my home/business?

Our trained technician will conduct a thorough inspection to determine the severity of the termite infestation. Based on our findings and your specific requirements, we will recommend the most appropriate and effective corrective treatment to protect your home or business from termites.


Can I use both treatments to achieve the best result?

Absolutely yes! Using both chemical barrier and baiting system treatments in combination is an effective approach to achieve the best results in termite control. This strategy is known as integrated pest management (IPM) and involves using multiple methods to target and control termite infestations. By combining both treatments, you can take advantage of their respective strengths and enhance the overall effectiveness of termite control!

  1. Chemical Barrier Treatment: The chemical barrier provides immediate protection and prevents termites from entering the structure. It forms a continuous barrier around the building, creating a zone that termites cannot penetrate.
  2. Baiting System Treatment: Baiting systems are designed to target the entire termite colony. Termites consume the bait and carry it back to the colony, leading to the gradual elimination of the entire population.

However, it’s essential to consult with us – StayFresh professional termite control provider to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific situation. A thorough inspection and assessment will help identify the extent of the infestation and tailor the treatment approach to meet your property’s needs effectively.
