Termites and Beetles


Hello guys great to meet you. My grandparent seem to have problems with termites and beetles around their home. They are worried that both eat wood so they called out Orkin and they had them set up (2) accounts one is called a subterranean termite service for the termites and the other is a ppbl liquid service. They pay two different bills for two different bugs. The question I have is could'nt one of these services spray they are doing work to kill both bugs. Seems there should be one spray that could kill both I'd think.

Termites and Beetles



Chemicals with permethrin, a pyrethroid insecticide, will kill both. I believe its good for ticks, fleas, roaches, ants, chiggers, and termites all in one.

(Sorry, all my type is showing up bold and I cannot turn it off)

I'm pretty sure that they can cancel one of the accounts. If one can handle a termite, they can handle a beetle as well.

although you can kill 2 bugs with the same chemical, the treatments can be very different.

treating beetles you have to treat the bare exposed wood.

to protect against termites you often have to trench around the foundation and apply pesticides deep into the soil.
