Does Bleach Kill Termites?

 

Termites are some of the most destructive critters on the planet. They may be small, but termites can cause some serious damage to your home which can end up costing an arm and a leg. There are a variety of different methods you can use to get rid of termites, however, nothing is as effective as professional termite extermination services. Traps, baits, and even bleach can effectively kill some of the termites but will not completely eliminate the problem. Many of our customers who come to us for termite extermination tell us that they attempted to control the infestation using bleach before giving us a call. Therefore, let’s talk about bleach as a home remedy for killing termites, since this is a question we get a lot!

 

Can Clorox Bleach Kill Termites?

 

When it comes to different brands of bleach, Clorox is king. Clorox is by far the most popular brand of bleach on the market. Many of our customers have asked us if Clorox bleach can be used to kill termites. The answer is yes, Clorox bleach can be used to kill termites. Termites breathe through small holes in their exoskeleton. When you spray a termite with bleach, the bleach is absorbed by the termite which kills it. 

Although bleach can be an effective way to kill termites that you can see, it won’t be able to exterminate a colony of termites if they have established themselves in your home. Bleach can only be used to kill the termites that you can see. If there are termites living in the walls, floor or roof of your house, you will not be able to get rid of them with bleach. Chances are, if you can see some termites, there are probably thousands that you cannot see. Another problem with using bleach to kill termites is that bleach can release fumes. It is important to use caution when dealing with bleach because the fumes are harmful to both humans and pets. 

If you are suspicious that you may have termites in your home, or if you have seen termites in your home, contact Clegg’s today. We will provide you with a complimentary inspection and help you determine a solution to get rid of termites in your home. 

 

What is The Best Brand of Bleach to Kill Termites?

 

Clorox is the most popular brand of bleach out there but it is possible to kill termites with pretty much any brand of bleach. If you have bleach in your house you can use it to kill some of the termites that you see. Generic brands such as Great Value bleach, and Up & Up bleach are just as effective at killing termites as Clorox. Keep in mind that using bleach to kill termites will only kill the termites that you can see. If there are termites hidden in your home bleach will not be able to successfully kill the entire colony.
