How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs & Termites

June 24th, 2015

While prevention is the best approach when it comes to pest control, termites and household bugs, you can still find yourself stuck with pests. Don’t let a few bugs become a widespread problem that interferes with your life. Read on to learn about dealing with them and getting rid of them in your St. Augustine, FL home.



Tracking down the source of a termite infestation is very important since termites can cause major damage to your home. You can set up spot traps or purchase nematodes, which are worms that are natural predators to termites. You can also set bait with boric acid to kill termites. Professional attention is necessary since termites can cause so much damage to your home.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are a small problem that can have major consequences. If smaller items are infested, they can be sealed in a plastic bag with the proper insecticide for a few days. Furniture may have to be dismantled and sprayed, and linens should be laundered in hot water. Vacuum the area and all surrounding spaces, including baseboards, floors, edges of carpet, and other tight spaces. Have your home properly inspected and treated for bed bugs with heat remediation treatments to prevent further spreading.


When you see an ant, there is a good chance an army of them are somewhere nearby. Sealing your home against further invasion and putting out smells they don’t appreciate (like baby powder, cinnamon, vinegar, or black pepper) can help to minimize the problem. Suck up ants you find with a vacuum (finishing with ant poison so they don’t decide to live inside your vacuum) and call up the professionals to deal with the root of the problem.

No matter what kind of pests you are dealing with, using a professional St. Augustine pest management exterminator such as Champion Termite & Pest Control is the best way to be done with them once and for all.
