How to make a MicroWave Based Termite Eradicator? Answered
I need help in constructing a microwave based termite eradicator using parts from a old working Microwave oven.
I understand that this is a project involving serious voltages and the effect of Microwaves is also there so without compromising safety how this can be done.The idea is to eliminate/ kill all termites which have affected some parts of cupboards (made out of Ply board), without having to remove or reconstruct the same. We create this gadget and keep the magnetron or the required electronics inside the cupboard near the affected areas and after due precautions, it is powered on from a long/safe distance, only for a few seconds, which I believe would be good enough for eliminating most termites. This method repeated at say 3 months would ensure termites would not attack the furniture ever.
Eradicating a colony may not be possible in our area as there are large open spaces all around and exact location of their origination is difficult to locate. Beside repeated chemical treatments is not yielding the desired results.
I have read at a number of website specializing on termite or pest removal about the microwave technology for the same.
I hope we would have enough guidance here and this kinda project would help a lot of people getting rid of a huge menace in their living spaces.
