If you have a problem with termites, it’s a problem you can’t ignore. That’s because a termite infestation is more than just an inconvenience; if left untreated those termites can cause serious damage to your home or business structure and jeopardize your investment.
Getting a termite inspection is important for any home or building owner. That’s because termites are known as a “silent destroyer” because they tend to damage the structure of a home or building without offering any obvious signs. Termites consume cellulose-based plant materials, which, unfortunately, nearly all buildings provide to them in plenty.
The most common termites are subterranean, meaning that they build “colonies” in the soil, close to a food source (like the foundation of your home. Even if food is not immediately available to these insects, subterranean termites build tunnel system through which they can quickly and efficiently gain access to food sources. With these tunnels, termites are able to live off the wood inside walls and inside your home, making it difficult to discover a termite infestation until it’s too late.
That said, you’ll know you have a termite problem if you see winged termites swarming around the windows and doors of your home. Because they’re attracted to light and warmth, you’ll more often see termites swarming during the warm summer months than any other time of year.
