Sign of Infestation
There are many different types of termites. Each kind poses a different type of threat to a home. Different types of termites prefer certain types of wood to eat and attack a properties in different ways. It is important to know the type of termite that you are dealing with before starting treatment so our experts will inspect your home to determine the type of termite you have.
An infestation begins when a male and female termite find each other and burrow into either wood or soil near wood. once they have bored a hole they create a small hollowed out area and begin producing offspring quickly. The female will produce either workers, which hunt for forage for food and build the tunnels, or soldiers, which defend the colony from danger. Termites feed on the cellulose found inside of wood, which is a source of simple sugars.
Termites are able to squeeze through the smallest cracks in your home. Once they’re in, they will start to eat away at the wooden structure of your home and can cause massive silent damage. There are several things that can be done to prevent them from entering your home, like drilling slab joints between slabs and placing chemical barriers around your homes foundation.
