When It's Time To Call About Professional Termite Control
June 14, 2018
The summer season is in full swing and the termites have already begun building their new nests inside our homes. At this very moment, termites could be tunneling through the wood and weakening the structures of numerous homes all across the country; in just a single year, these termites can cause around five billion dollars worth of damage to structures throughout the United States! Will your South Carolina home be one of the many homes affected by termite damage this year?
If you’re worried that you may have a termite problem, there are certain signs you can be on the lookout for. Termite swarmers inside your home are an indicator that there is already an active termite population living within the structure of your home. Noticing termite swarmers around the outside of your home, however, usually means that there is a nearby colony that is looking for another place to nest.
If you see discarded wings around your home, it is likely that a termite colony has decided that your home is an ideal place to move into and have already begun invading; reproductive termites only shed their wings when they have mated and are ready to start a new colony. When looking for signs of termite infestation, you will also want to look along the foundation of your home for mud tunnels that go underground; termites use these mud tubes to travel throughout their colony.
All of these signs hint at termite infestation and should be taken very seriously. Termites work fast, and the longer you wait to get rid of them, the more damage they can do to your home. Some desperate homeowners turn to numerous do-it-yourself solutions that aren’t actually “solutions” at all. Ultimately, you will end up spending a large amount of money on a variety of termite control products that are largely ineffective, especially in the long-term, and as a result, waste time, energy, and money. The only real way to stop termites for good and keep them from coming back is professional pest control.
