Most of us have been unfortunately inviting fewer guests to our homes for a meal this past year. But termites, which are both uninvited and unwanted, continue to enter homes as much as ever. They often become permanent residents with us, feasting on the wood that holds our homes together. Don’t let this happen to your home!
Regular residential pest control and inspections help protect your investment by identifying conditions that encourage termites, and catching infestations early, sometimes before they have done any major damage. The wood in our homes can last for centuries, but neglect can cause wood-destroying pests to ruin all that.
Termites, carpenter ants, wood-boring beetles, and wood decay all attack our wooden structures. Besides looking for these pests and signs of their presence, an inspection also finds conditions that increase the likelihood of their attack. For subterranean termites, conditions that encourage them include water leaks, poor drainage, cracked foundations, wood that touches the soil, tree stumps and roots too close to a foundation, dirt-filled steps, the soil above siding, and many other seemingly insignificant situations that can end up attracting wood-destroying pests. In case any of this happens to you, read these tips from a pest control expert.
If you think termites or other wood-destroyers may be in or under your home, call us right away to set up an appointment for an inspection. Get the job done right—we are professionals and know these serious pests and how best to get rid of them. Proper evaluation of the problem, along with professional treatment techniques, are essential to stop or prevent these common invading ‘house guests’ from feasting on your home.
