When it comes to termites, there’s no risk to your health. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for your home or building. Termites are wood-destroying insects that, once they get your structure in their crosshairs, will infest and consume wood. If this type of activity is not stopped, the structural integrity of the dwelling or facility will be compromised. If this happens, you can almost be certain that your wallet will take a hit. Termite damage can be costly and leave you with expensive repair bills.
How Do You Know If You Have A Termite Problem?
In our region, termites live in underground colonies and make their way between the nest and their food source (i.e. your home or business) in tunnels they’ve created. Because of this behavior, a termite infestation is not always noticeable, at least not at first. If you observe winged termites flying around your property, either inside or out, have noticed small mud tubes along the foundation, have discovered small holes in wood, it’s likely you have a termite problem. To know for sure, a professional termite inspection is needed.
