Finding and observing a termite infestation may only occur after significant damage has been caused to your property. In the worst of situations, the structure of your property may collapse, which is why professional termite control is required if you live in any area where the potential for termite infestation is possible.
Where Do Termites Live?
Termites are very small, and you may not notice when a small number are living around your property. They are usually part of a much larger group, which may include tens of thousands of insects. They enjoy living underground in soil and inside dry and damp wood structures.
Some will build nests inside your wood which provides the structure for your home. They will continue to eat the wood from the inside, and when you finally see the termites eating the wood on the outside, they may already have caused too much damage to your property.
Annual inspections are obligatory because termite control is essential. It should be provided by experts with years of experience of locating and destroying the termites around properties. Professionals understand the behavior and signs of activity before dealing with prevention and further control.
The same pest control company may also protect your property and yard against bugs and pests while providing your termite control. They will be able to offer you advice from their vast knowledge so that you can look out for any potential warning signs that termites are invading your property.
Ants and spiders actually enjoy eating termites, but you would not want your property to be overrun with too many of these either.
You should know that termites can remain active during the entire year, including any colder periods during the winter, by simply moving further or deeper underground. Their queen will continue to lay eggs throughout the year.
Billions of dollars of damage are caused to crops and property throughout the United States each year from termites. With professional assistance, you can eradicate termites from your property completely.
