The Best Way To Protect Your Aiken Property From Termites
May 14, 2021
For far too many property owners, termites are a nasty surprise that they never saw coming. That’s why it’s important to take steps to protect your property long before the signs of an infestation present themselves. If you wait to act, it may already be too late.
Termite Damage: The Unseen Menace
Most people think of termite damage in extremes. Either they think of the small tunnels seen carved into old pieces of wood or they think about the serious collapses and tree toppling that are the result of long-term termite damage. But there’s a whole lot of middle ground between those obvious forms of termite damage, and it’s the more subtle middle ground where proper pest control is needed. To put it simply: don’t wait until you notice termites to start addressing them.
What To Know About Termites
Spotting termites before they do huge amounts of damage is only possible if you know how they behave and spread throughout a property. Termite colonies almost always start outdoors, forming vast networks of tunnels below-ground. These subterranean termites are the most common to find in North America, though some desert and plains species do form mounds or hills, instead. To build these colonies up, termites use a caste system the same way that ants do. With workers, soldiers, and reproductive termites, a single colony can work around-the-clock to spread underground and target as many sources of wood as possible. Additionally, termites don’t often eat clean through the wood, meaning almost all evidence of their activity is hidden below-ground. That’s why it takes an expert pair of eyes to catch termite populations before they’ve grown large enough to attack structures or large trees that cause damage if they collapse or lose a limb.
