"Hey I'm Chris the Bug Guy from, and today we are going to show you how to get rid of termites, specifically how to get rid of subterranean termites. Termite treatment chemicals are mainly used to treat subterranean termites which come from underground. For that reason, to treat subterranean termites, we have to dig a termite around the house and place the treatment in the ground. The goal is to put a liquid barrier around your entire home, and DIY, or do it yourself, termite treatment products are made to last a long time in the soil. So anywhere from 5 to over 10 years wow that's a long time. The best termite products we have these days are called non-repellent products. This means the termites do not realize the barrier is in the soil. They walk through the product freely picking it up on their bodies and carrying it back down underground and passing it around to the rest of the colony. It moves like a plague, killing the queen and the entire colony over a period of time. The cost of a termite treatment from a professional company can range from anywhere on average from $800-$1500. Most of the cost is in the labor to perform the treatment, but at if you are willing to do the labor yourself you can treat your home just as effectively as the professionals for a few hundred dollars or less. Now that is a lot of money back in your pocket. Now let's go outside and show you how to apply the product in the trench around your home. Step 1 is digging the trench. The trench against your house should be 6" wide and 6" deep. You can use a shovel or a pick axe, and the trench will be directly against the foundation. Once you have dug the trench, it is 4 gallons per 10 feet, 10 lineal feet, along the house. So you are going to mix in the termiticide, make a line on the bucket if you need to for 4 gallons, and once it's mixed we're going to evenly distribute it over the trench. So we have a 10' section over here. You are going to evenly distribute those 4 gallons over the 10', and then move on to the next section. By the time you get back around this should have dissipated into the soil. Now once you have finished trenching and filling the trench with the termiticide, and it's had time to dissipate into the soil you need to put the back fill back into the trench. Now the dirt right now is untreated. This is the dirt we took out of the trench, but you want to make sure that you treat it before you put it back in because you don't want a layer of untreated soil on top of the treated soil. If termites happen to go right near the surface, they are going to skip the termiticide you placed in the trench. So this is a lot easier with two people. You want to mix some termiticide in a 1 gallon pump sprayer, and then you want to have a shovel or a rake to push the dirt back in the trench. The person with the sprayer is going to go ahead and start just wetting the dirt down, not so much that it is muddy, but just start wetting the dirt down, and as you are pushing it back in with the shovel or rake, the other person is going to wet it down. Just move on down the line. Let him wet it down a little bit. As you shovel it back in they're just going to wet down that back fill and get it mixed well with the termiticide. Now your house is completely protected by the professional termiticide. I hope you found this video useful. For more information click here."
