How do you RID/PREVENT of termites without using fumigators? ANY safer way than DRILLING CHEM/BAITING?

Drilling chemicals or baiting termites or commercial forms of removal are not ultimate solutions to termite problems. The presence of termites is mostly today due to human encroachment on insects and animal habitats. Do we have better ways of preventing their invasion of homes without having to pay for spraying or drilling with chemicals. Surely there must be some friendlier way of handling this. Bear in mind there is no home without papers or cellulose bearing materials!! ARE we stuck with the fumigators????!!!!
