Termites – a word that spell huge problems for you and your home. Termites eat wood and a lot of it. They can make any structure of any home unsafe if left to their own devices.
Termites are not choosy and anywhere dead wood is available, is at risk for a termite infestation. Termites love homes because of the amount of wood – or food – available, but also for the water and shelter they are provided. When the supply of food, water and shelter are readily available, termites will happily move in and start making their big new colony. Which can lead to a lot of problems, expensive problems, for you and your home.
Termites create mud tubes that stick to various surfaces. These termite mud tubes contain feces and debris that can also attract other insects, which can lead to more pest control problems. Your best bet is to keep your home free of termites. If you discover mud tubes, contact a termite pest control company like ScorpionTech right away.
If you want to help keep your home termite-free, having a yearly termite inspection is highly recommended. An experienced and licensed termite inspector should do this. While regularly checking your home yourself is always a good idea, you may not know just what to look for or if you know what to look for, you may not know where to look. If you know where to look, you may not be able to see the extent of the colony or the damage they have done.
Termites like to expand their colony often when they can so there could be more colonies in other areas. Only trained termite professionals know just where to look, what to look for and have an idea as to the extent of the colony and damage it has done. They can also take care of the termites and offer ways to ensure that the termites do not return so that you can have peace of mind.
