Has anyone used Terminate diy termite control?

I just picked up a flyer from Home Depot and wondered if it was any good.

Good morning - haven't used it, but have looked at it. Very expensive - look at this web site for commercial/industrial strength insecticides/pesticides: PestProducts.com WARNING - YOU MUST KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING - these products are not homeowners products, they are the same products sold to the trade.

Have had great luck with them and their prices.

i would never recommend treating termites yourself...leave that type of work to the professionals. You may save yourself money in the short term, but how much is your home worth?

Termite treatment is best left to a licensed professional. It is worth the few extra dollars to have a professional so you can sleep at night knowing that your home, your major investment, is properly protected.

I have used the Spectracide Terminate stakes for 3 years now and don't have any signs of active termite infestation. In addition, I do have a contract with a termite control company who does come out once/yr to inspect, as well. He wanted to sell me is baiting system for $600-$700 but I figure I can do that myself and let him worry about controlling any active infestations should I get any, but haven't had any in three years.

Research tends to show that termite treatment is best left to a professional. For the small annual fee that an exterminator charges you have peace of mind that your home will be insect free.

Check with your insurance -- they might not cover termite damage unless you have inspection and treatment by a licensed exterminator.
