5: Neem Oil
This is a pretty slow yet an effective remedy. Neem oil is a safe and nontoxic ingredient that helps to get rid of all the wood termites. When applied on the infested area, it will prevent the termites from molting. This leads to their death.
Neem oil is easily available from the market and doesn’t cost much. Simply take a cotton ball and apply it on the infested area. The silly termites will start to ingest this oil along with the wood. Apply twice a day until all the termites are killed and no colonies are formed.
Borax or Sodium Borate is known as the termite terminator. Buy it from the market and coat the infested area and its surrounding with it. This will immediately shut down the nervous system of termites, causes dehydration and leads to their death.
Coat the area daily for a week. Alternatively, you can prepare a liquid solution of borax and spray it on the infested area. Add 1 tbsp. of borax powder in 8-ounce of hot water.
7: Hot & Cold Treatment
Termites cannot survive in extreme hot or cold conditions. For a temperature, more than 120 degrees or less than -20 degrees will kill them instantly. Start heating the wooden structure at 120 degrees or buy liquid nitrogen from the market and spray it carefully on the infested area. Be careful while doing any of the treatments.
