If you think you have an infestation of termites or you know that you do, you will want to read this. Termites can create horrific damage if not eradicated immediately. They will feed 24/7 on every piece of wood and fibrous items in and around your home and will endanger the structural integrity of the building, eventually causing floors to sag and walls to buckle. In fact, termites cause billions of dollars worth of damage all across the U.S. every year, most of which is not covered under homeowner policies.
You might not hear or see a thing, but underground or around your foundation and in your walls the quiet termite could be weakening the structure of your home. Without you knowing, they march into your home through cracks and crevices, creating mud tubes with their saliva and feces as they make their way to everything consisting of wood to have their never ending feast. When they die, there are plenty more termites being born to replace these fierce workers. In a relatively short period of time, your home can be left with extensive damage. They can eat your furniture, your floors, your ceilings, your support beams, and much more costing you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs or replacements. In fact, there have been cases where the damage is so severe that the building had been deemed inhabitable and had to be destroyed and rebuilt – at the property owner’s expense.
Unfortunately, that massive bill could have been avoided if the homeowner had only contacted a pest control service before the termite infestation got wildly out of control or if that homeowner had an effective year-round termite monitoring system in place. One thing is for sure, it’s always good to be proactive when it concerns the equity and the stability of the structure of your home.
It is so important for you to take care of an infestation immediately, safely, and effectively before damage to your home has occurred, and to make sure an infestation does not reoccur.
