We would occasionally find termites in our house. Our remedy is the termicide liquid spray that is mixed with water. It is kind of messy because you cannot avoid getting wet with the pesticide. And the smell is not pleasant. Last week, we discovered a hive of termite in the ceiling of our terrace. After spraying with the termicide, presumably it has been cleaned although we cannot be too sure because we didn't open the entire ceiling. When we talked about hiring a professional for pest control, we realized that it is very expensive. What do you think?
