Termite Extermination Services
A termite infestation is considered a “silent destroyer” by some industry experts, as the immediate signs of infestation aren’t always obvious, and the damage they do cause is rarely visible until it’s too late. There are over 2,000 species of termites in the world, with 40 different species populating the U.S. alone, and all of the consume cellulose-based materials. In simpler terms, they eat wood, and wood is one of the most important building pieces of a home. Imagine sitting at home and watching your second floor cave in on top of you, because termites have finally weakened the wood supports that are holding up the floor, and the floor has caved in under its own weight. As ridiculous and scary as this situation sounds, it’s not impossible, especially if your home is experiencing a termite infestation. That means, as soon as you find any sign of a termite infestation, or would like a professional to inspect your home just in case, you should call your local pest control company.
Termites can make their home directly in your home, or in the ground right near your home. The signs of a termite infestation are unfortunately a lot less obvious than other pest infestations might be, as there is no scurrying, smells, or damage that are immediately obvious. If you see a temporary swarm of winged insects travelling around the soil or base of your home, or cracked or bubbling paint on your home exterior, these could be potential signs of a termite infestation. In the exterior of your home, wood that sounds hollow when tapped, or discarded insect wings on your floor could be another sign.
