Will Termite Treatment Kill Other Bugs?
Termite treatments are extremely efficient at killing termites. Additionally, some termite treatments may also be effective in controlling other insects.
Liquid termiticides and bait stations contain a formula that targets termites. In some instances, they can also kill off other pests (such as ants, beetles, and more), but termiticides should not be relied upon if you’re trying to exterminate other pests.
Do Termiticides Kill Other Pests?
Most termite treatments offered by professional pest control companies are formulated specifically for wood-destroying pests. Due to their potency, they can possibly kill other pests in the home or around the yard. Some of the pests known to be affected by liquid termiticides and bait stations include:
- Bed bugs
- Wood-boring beetles
- Pantry pests

Do Liquid Termiticides and Baiting Systems Kill Other Insects?
Liquid termite treatments have been known to also kill beetles, boxelder bugs, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, earwigs, flies, silverfish, spiders, and many types of ants. This is due to the potency of the chemical formula.
But what about baiting systems? Bait stations work to kill carpenter ants, but not much else. This is because bait stations are specifically formulated to work against termites.
