Will Termite Treatment Kill Other Bugs?

Professional termite treatments are some of the pest control industry’s most advanced pest solutions. These treatments not only eliminate termite infestations but can potentially prevent and control other pests.

Liquid termiticides and bait stations are filled with strong termiticides designed to effectively eliminate termites.  These termite treatments have shown some effectiveness in controlling other pests like ants and beetles. It’s important to note that while these treatments may help control other pests, they are made to eliminate termites and should only be used for termite prevention.

Do Termiticides Kill Other Pests?

Termite treatments offered by pest control companies are created to target specific wood-destroying pests. However, due to their strength, these treatments have shown some effectiveness against other pests around your home. Below are some pests that are known to be affected by termite bait stations and liquid termiticides:

  • Bed bugs
  • Cockroaches
  • Wood-boring beetles
  • Pantry pests
  • Rodents
  • Spiders

Do Liquid Termiticides and Baiting Systems Kill Other Insects?

Due to the strength of liquid termite treatments, they are known to be highly effective in killing pests such as beetles, boxelder bugs, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, earwigs, flies, silverfish, spiders, and many types of ants. On the other hand, baiting stations are effective at killing carpenter ants but ineffective against other pests as they are formulated to kill wood-eating pests.

Are My Pets Safe Around Termite Treatments?

Professional termite treatments are entirely safe to use around your family and pets. After treatment, your professional exterminator will recommend keeping pets away from the treated area for a specific amount of time. Once that time has passed, it is safe to let your pets back into the treatment areas.
