As we head out of winter and into spring, this is the perfect time of year to stop and consider the threat termites pose to our Nashville homes. That is why the team at All-American Pest Control takes part in Termite Awareness Week. Termite Awareness Week for 2018 runs from March 11th to the 17th. If you'd like to take part, here are some bullet points about termites you can share through social media.
Termite Facts Everyone Should Know
Do you know the signs of a termite infestation? Spring is the perfect time to get informed.
Subterranean termites never stop looking for food. When they attack a home, they can attack many spots at once. #termiteawareness
Termites cost U.S. property owners billions in repair costs each year. #termiteawareness
Termites are a billion dollar problem but, with prevention, that damage can be avoided.
Subterranean termites are the most destructive termites in the United States because they come up from the ground and leave little or no sign of their presence.
Spring moisture is attractive to termites. It is important to create conditions around our homes that allow the sun to dry rainwater.
Termite swarmers are not usually a sign of impending infestation; they are a sign of a current, mature infestation. #termiteawareness
Termite swarmers are black with long white wings. If you see these insects on your home, it is time to call in a professional.
Have you seen mud caked on your foundation walls? That mud could be termite tunnels.
If you see mud tunnels on your foundation wall, break a piece off. If it is repaired in a few days, you have an active infestation of termites.
Termites can travel as far as the length of a football field in search of a meal.
Rotting wood or leaf litter in your backyard is an attractant for termites. #springcleanup #termiteawareness
