Hi!
You can use either home remedy or you can hire a service for this purpose.
For home remedy you can use orange oil.
Thanks

Termites will actually eat the paper off the sheetrock and wallpaper off the wall if not kept in check by chemicals. It is not possible to obtain in quanity heart pine and cypress lumber the way it was available in the 19 th century.

That's true anyway...but chemicals should be effective enough to deal with termites.
