Things To Know

Understanding Termite Infestation
Like any other type of pests, they need food to survive. Termites feed on cellulose, which are found in wood, books, boxes, furniture and drywall coverings. To start a colony, they can send winged reproductive or they will forage for food and then find a suitable place to live and stay there. They will create mud tunnels so that they can have better access to the wood or to the item they are feeding on. As they continue feeding, they will hollow out the wood that supports the floors, walls and ceiling, which could lead to a major damage and thousands of repairs.
Signs of Infestations
There are two types of termites, which are the subterranean termites and the drywood termites. Subterranean termites and drywood termites both need food and moisture to survive although drywood termites only need minimal moisture to feed on wood. While subterranean termites live in the soil, they can create large colonies. A swarm of winged termites is a sign of an infestation followed by the presence of mud tubs. These straw-like tubes that are on a structure to the ground can be an indication that an infestation is present or has already passed. Drywood termites on the other hand, live within the wood with no soil contact and have small sizes of colony. They create sand like fecal pellets that might fall from the ceiling or from furniture.
Why You Should Act Now
These pests work 24/7 and they will never stop until they have consumed their food. Signs of infestations may also go undiscovered until it is already late. The worst part about falling victim to termites is that it can greatly depreciate the value of your home. Whether you are buying or selling a home, the presence of termites can affect a good sale.
