Any chemical that kills pests can be dangerous to humans. In fact, the suffix “cide” when attached to a word means the act of killing. Thus, a termiticide is a substance that kills termites and a homicide is a crime where a human was killed. Thus, when partnering with a termiticide company that is spraying substances on your property, you should find out what exactly is in the pest control product and if there are any environmental impacts, including exposure to such chemicals.

Arizona Termite Specialists in Gilbert only use Termidor® HE, a new liquid termite technology, is sprayed around your home’s foundations and indoors. It can be mildly toxic to humans so try not to ingest it or inhale it. It will not harm your skin if you come into contact with it. For your pets, you need to keep them out of the termiticide area until the product has dried.


Most reputable termite control and pest control companies offer a guarantee of their services so you know that if your first termite treatment doesn’t take, that the termite exterminators will come out and re-treat. This assures you, the customer, of the services you are receiving. After all, when you’re dealing with thousands of living creatures, you want to make sure that all of them are gone because if some survive, you will have another termite infestation in no time. When you receive your contract to sign for termite treatments, make sure you read the fine print, or be sure to ask the termite company if they offer a guarantee for their services and what that covers.

Follow Up

After your termite treatment is complete, your local professional termite control specialists should offer up follow up instructions, what to look for in the coming months that could be signs that your termites are still alive, as well as a follow-up visit to inspect for signs themselves. At Arizona Termite Specialists in Gilbert, we offer follow-up appointments to once again thoroughly inspect for any signs of recent termite activity. If some are found, we treat again.
