You're Not Likely To See A Termite: How To Identify Signs Of Activity
Termites are one of the most talked about insects, yet they are almost never seen. This is for a good reason. These insects spend the majority of their lives either underground or inside a structure of wood. Subterranean termites, one of the most common local species, like to infest wood that is water-damaged, rotting, or in decay. That’s why it’s important to be aware of any leaks you may have around your home, as this can attract them.
If you would like to know if your property has an active termite infestation, bring in our team for a thorough inspection. This is the absolute best way to understand your risk and learn more about your options to control these bugs year-round.
From Bad To Worse: How Termite Damage Can Escalate Quickly
A single termite nibbling away at your home’s wood is not a big problem. Even a full colony of these pests cannot severely damage your property in a day. It typically takes months for a colony to mature and then several more for damage to become noticeable. Keeping this in mind, all kinds of termites damage homes silently. You are not likely to identify an active infestation until over a year of activity.
On top of this, termite nests can split and share a source of food. The more nests there are around your yard, the faster these bugs will damage your property. We would like to help you avoid this as much as possible.
Prevention Is Key: Protecting Your Home From Termites
Before we talk about professional termite control, we want to talk about DIY prevention. Here are some popular options that are sure to help you avoid these pests on your property.
- Remove sticks and leaf litter from your yard.
- Remove fallen trees and dead stumps from your property.
- Eliminate sources of moisture build-up on your property.
- Make sure all of your home’s pipes are in good working condition and not leaking.
- Use a dehumidifier inside your home.
- Repair sections of your home’s wood that are moisture damaged.
If termites are already inside your home, no amount of prevention will get them to go away. To get rid of termites, invest in professional termite control through Eco Valley Pest Control.
