Cockroach on leftovers

Professional termite treatments represent some of the most advanced and effective solutions in the pest control industry. These treatments primarily target termite infestations but can sometimes control other insects as well. Liquid termiticides and bait stations utilize strong formulas to exterminate termites and, occasionally, other pests such as ants and beetles. However, certain treatments are specifically designed for termites and should be used solely for that purpose.

Do Termiticides Kill Other Pests?

Most treatments offered by professional pest control services are specifically formulated to eliminate wood-destroying pests. Due to their powerful nature, these treatments can also affect other pests and bugs present in the home or yard. Pests that may be impacted by liquid termiticides and bait stations include:

  • Bed Bugs: Small, parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals, typically causing itchy bites and infestations in sleeping areas.
  • Cockroaches: Resilient, nocturnal insects that are known for infesting homes and buildings, where they scavenge for food and can spread disease.
  • Wood-Boring Beetles: Insects whose larvae tunnel into and feed on wood, causing structural damage to trees and wooden structures.
  • Pantry Pests: Small insects that infest stored food products in kitchens and pantries, causing contamination and spoilage.
  • Rodents: A diverse group of mammals known for their sharp incisors, long tails, and ability to adapt to various environments, often causing issues as pests in human habitats.
  • Spiders: Arachnids are known for their eight legs, typically spinning silk webs to catch prey, and playing a crucial role in controlling insect populations.

Do Liquid Termiticides and Baiting Systems Kill Other Insects?

Liquid termite treatments are highly effective against an array of pests, including beetles, boxelder bugs, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, earwigs, flies, silverfish, spiders, and various ant species, owing to their potent formula. But what about baiting systems? While they effectively eliminate carpenter ants, their scope is limited, as they are tailored specifically for termite extermination.

Are My Pets Safe Around Termite Treatments?

Professional termite treatments prioritize the safety of your family and pets. Your skilled termite exterminator will provide instructions post-treatment, advising you to keep pets away temporarily. You can trust that once the treatment period has passed, there’s no need to be concerned about any adverse effects on your pets.
