Afraid that termites might ruin your wooden décor? Here’s how you can prevent that!

There’s nothing more dangerous than termites on wooden furniture. What makes it even more dangerous is that they are difficult to notice owing to their size. Don’t worry, we have an effective solution to get rid of termites.

Seeking professional help is always a wise thing to do. However, if the infestation is not that bad you can get rid of termites by following these tips.

1) The Sun

Leave your affected wooden furniture under the sun for 2-3 days. Termites can’t stand the heat and die easily. This method also helps to get rid of the moisture in the furniture, thus preventing further infestation.

2) Make a trap using cardboard

Moisten the cardboard with some water to enhance the distinctive smell and place it near the affected area. Within a few hours, you will see the termites lurking on the cardboard. Discard or burn the cardboard to get rid of them.

3) Spray boric acid

Mix 2 tablespoons of borax powder into a spray bottle filled with water. Spray it on the affected areas. You can also combine this method with the cardboard trap for better results.

4) Apply neem oil

Just apply it over the affected area regularly with a cloth or spray it.

Keep these tips handy and you no longer need to worry about termites.

Top Tip

If you can’t find a strong source of sunlight, use fluorescent tubes.
