2. Direct sunlight – Termites usually prefer to hide in darkness. Make use of a sunny day and move all your furniture outdoors in rotation. Termites will automatically be visible in the sunlight.
3. Freeze termites – This is only an option for people who have large size freezers in their garage. Freezing is also an effective way to kill termites. Ofcourse, moving your whole closet into the deep freezer is not an option, but small pieces of furniture can be moved in. Make sure that they are sealed and put into the freezer.
4. Trap – A termite trap is easy to build. You just need some cardboard as it contains cellulose which attracts the termites. Spray about three to four pieces of cardboard with water and place it near the affected furniture for three to four days as it will attract the termites. Remove the trap and burn it to dispose the termites.
