How Safe Are Microwave Pest Control Treatments?

May 17, 2016by

When it comes to eliminating termites, there are several options you can go with but not all of them are safe for you, your family, or your pets. That’s something you’ll want to take into consideration when talking to an exterminator here in Southern California and choosing an eliminate method. When it comes to termites, Hi-Tech Termite Control often recommends microwave termite treatments to our clients. One of the reasons we choose this method above others is because it’s one of the safest ones available.

Many elimination methods used by exterminators in Orange County involve the heavy use of chemicals. That could involve spot treatment, chemical barriers, or even whole-house fumigation. While there is certainly a time and a place for these treatments, if you can avoid them and use a chemical-free solution, it’s better. That’s because you won’t have to worry about any unexpected side effects from the chemicals used, whether that’s an allergic reaction or something worse.

Microwave treatments use a localized blast of microwaves, sending them deep into the wood of your home. When the microwaves interact with termites, it heats and kills the termites almost instantly. Our specialized microwave mounts on a tripod where technicians aim it at the termite infestation and eliminate termite workers, eggs, and the queen, destroying the colony. So there are no chemicals to worry about when treatment is done.

There are so many advantages to microwave termite treatment. Not only is it effective and affordable, it doesn’t require you to leave your home for an extended period of time or require clouds of chemicals to permeate your property.
