If you have a small idea about the use of chemicals and can get rid of termite infestations at home of your own, then you’ve arrived at the right place. Today, we’re going to go through the different chemicals/pesticides that can be used in the treatment of termites at home. Pesticides for termites are broadly divided into liquid termiticides and baiting systems and it may help to know the various types of pesticides used for termites treatment.
Whether Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore or any other city in India, one frequent question we hear is, “What is the best chemical to use for termite treatment?” The Bureau of Indian Standard recommends the use of 3 termite control chemicals under ISI standards, and they include Chlorpyrifos 20% EC, Lindane 20% EC and Imidacloprid 30.5% SC.
Pesticides for termites treatment
1) Chlorpyrifos 20% EC
A recent study shows that most termite control chemicals have a life expectancy of 3-9 years, but we’re hoping you won’t need to use them for so many years. Chlorpyrifos 20% EC is a termite repellent liquid chemical wherein 1 litre of the chemical needs to be mixed with 19 litres of water to create the required solution. However, termites have evolved and it is said that they find a way around these repellent chemicals.
2) Lindane 20% EC
Again, the mixture needs to be made in the same proportions to arrive at the required solution. Mix 1 litre of Lindane 20% EC with 19 litres of water. Again, this liquid termiticide is a repellent and may not always be the most effective.
3) Imidacloprid 30.5% SC
Here, 10.5 ml of this chemical needs to go with 5 litres water of water and what’s better with this solution is that it is an anti-repellent, which is non-detectable by termites. However, using any of these three chemicals have left the work only half done. It’s always better to get a pest control professional to come and thoroughly inspect your home before they begin the required pest control procedure.

Like we said above, using the right chemicals only completes 50% of the job. Right application in strategic places in and outside your home is also vital. Thus, it’s always better to hire the services of the exterminators. You can check the kind of chemicals they are using since you have a better idea of termiticides now. However, executing the service is equally important.
