Termites are one of the most destructive pests that can invade your home, silently eating away at the structure and causing costly damage. Known as the “silent destroyers,” termites can go undetected for years, making it crucial to understand their behavior and take preventative measures.
There are several types of termites, which live in large colonies and feed on cellulose, which can be found in wood and other organic materials. They can cause severe damage to your home, and if left untreated, they can even cause the structure to collapse.
Here are some things you should know about termites:
- An infestation of termites can be identified by hollow-sounding wood, visible mud tubes, and discarded wings. If you notice any of these signs, do not wait to contact a pest control expert.
- Termites are best dealt with by preventing them from entering your home in the first place. The best way to prevent termites from coming into your home is to keep it dry, fix any leaks or moisture problems, and use materials that are resistant to termites.
- The best way to treat termites is by hiring a professional pest control service. Although there are some DIY methods, it is best to leave it to the pros. The SMARTENZ IPM® team can identify the extent of the infestation and recommend the most effective treatment options.
