Formosan subterranean termite control is a multi-prong and long-term effort. The biology and habits of Formosan subterranean termites make them particularly difficult, but not impossible to control.

Control for an Active Infestation:

  • Exterior soil treatment around perimeter of home with registered termiticide as a barrier to subterranean colony
  • Install termite monitor and bait system to reduce colony size over time.
  • Repair damaged wood.
  • Monitor and remove infested landscape plants.
  • Fumigation may be recommended if the structure is also harboring drywood termites. (Fumigation alone will not kill a Formosan subterranean termite colony.)

Prevention for Properties at Risk:

  • Install termite monitor and bait system as a preventative measure.
