One of the oldest natural ways to combat termites is to use boric acid. Boric acid is cheap and available at most drug stores, hardware ware stores and general home improvement stores. It usually comes in the form of a white powder, and is generally good for keeping out insects in general.
Boric acid can be used preventatively by treating wood with it before you use, and painting it on the outside of your home will prove to be an effective way to termite proof. You can also use it to kill a termite colony, with some work.
What you need to do is mix the boric acid in water, and then soak some wooden stakes with it. After they’re saturated, you need to bury the stakes in the ground. You’ll need to use lots of them, and make sure you replace them as they are eaten.
Mixing boric acid and water is a good preventative measure for killing termites. The best combat against termites is tent heating, you put a tent around your house and crank up the heat using a propane heater.
Boric Acid has been used for decades to get rid of many insect, including termites. Mix the boric acid with water to make a paste and spread on wood.
