Termites Cause Destruction
Termites can cause thousands of dollars in destruction. They appear as tiny insects but reproduce quickly which means an infestation can appear in a very short amount of time. It is so important to catch the signs before severe structural damage occurs. Become proactive by learning the signs of termites to protect your investment before its too late.
Signs of Termites
- Mud tubes
- Small piles of feces (may look like sawdust or coffee grounds)
- Discarded wings
- Darkening or blistering of wood structures
What Attracts Termites?
Subterranean Termites need moisture as they are always at risk of drying out. This is why they live in the soil. Standing water in or around your home’s foundation creates an attractive environment for these termites. Leaky pipes also create opportunities for termites infestation. Avoid piling wood on moist ground. Small steps you can take to protect your property.
Proactive Prevention Steps
- Wood to ground contact
- Cracks in Structures
- Leaky pipes, improper drainage
