Signs of Termite Infestation
There are many different signs of a termite infestation, and taking immediate action is essential for long-term success. Termites build colonies using wood from the buildings. They often leave a trail of feces that look like small pellets, and they can also leave signs of damage within the wood itself. Some termites have wings, and these termites will shed their wings after mating season. This is why people who have an infestation of dry wood termites will often find large piles of discarded wings lying around on the floor. The biggest sign of a termite infestation is the condition of the wood itself.
Calling Professional Help
Termite swarms pose a very serious risk to the value of your home, so it is important to take care of this problem during the early stages of the infestation. Swarming termites may also be subterranean, and these termites are even harder to detect than the dry wood termites. Any sign of a termite infestation requires a serious and immediate response. Delay can be costly because these termite swarms can quickly erode away the foundation of your home with little interference. Many popular methods of termite control may seem viable at first glance, but there is a lot at stake when it comes to the value of your home. Call professional termite control to receive the best treatments for termite swarming and infestations. Our services can make a big difference in protecting your most valuable asset.
How Swarming Termites Enter the Home
Subterranean termites may swarm within the soil while moving towards the home as a group. They often burrow into the vulnerable parts of the foundation, and they leave behind tunnels that are visible to the human eye. They enter the home through the cracks in the walls and other exposed crevices. This may include air vents, pipes and rotting dry wood. Other termites may enter the home through exposed areas in the walls, and there are a variety of small openings around the home that are too small to see. Once they are inside of the home, they may leave a trail of feces, wings or loose debris that can signal an entrance point for other swarming termites. Termite infestations can cause permanent damage to the home, so it is extremely important to protect your property by taking prompt action as soon as you can.
