Will Termite Treatment Kill Other Bugs?
Certain types of termite treatment can occasionally kill other insects or pests you are dealing with at the time of treatment.
While not guaranteed, certain termite treatments will sometimes work to kill bugs other than termites in the home. Liquid termiticides such as Termidor have been known to be effective for eliminating cockroaches and ants in the home along with termites. Sentricon, on the other hand, is formulated specifically for termites and thus is unlikely to affect any other type of pest or bug. If you have other pest problems in the home, it’s always best to consult a professional who can customize a treatment plan to fight off any infestation you are experiencing.
How Does Termidor Kill Ants and Cockroaches?
In addition to being one of the most effective treatments for termites, Termidor is equally effective in controlling carpenter ants, house ants, black ants, and a number of other ant species! The non-repellent technology in Termidor works in the same manner as it does with termites to spread throughout ant colonies. Once ants have picked up Termidor outside, Termidor’s “transfer effect” will ensure it is shared throughout the colony in only a few days, with many infestations being completely controlled in under a week. Termidor has also been known to kill cockroaches either on its own or supplemented with another treatment specific to roach extermination.
What Other Pests Are Killed by Termite Treatment?
Although there is no guarantee, certain types of termite treatments have been known to work against other types of pests as well, including:
- Bed bugs
- Pantry pests
- Wood-boring beetles
Which Termite Treatments Don’t Kill Other Pests?
Orange oil, heat treatments, and other methods of control have all been reported as killing other bugs in the home, but every situation is different. It’s best to consult a professional pest control company who can inform you on what techniques are most suited for individual pests.
