Termite dangers and risks
Do you think about termites being a danger or a risk? Termites are a danger to ALL homes and businesses. They can thrive inside your home, feasting upon it without you seeing a single sign. If you ignore the signs, it might be too late.
“Unless you call Alaska home, your house is not safe from termite damage.”
Sentricon, (the number one brand in termite protection…)
That sums it up for us!
Termites are found in over five million homes per year and cause homeowners over FIVE BILLION dollars per year. That’s a lot of termite damage.
Termites are very organized and efficient. Don’t “wait to see” signs of termites. Not only are repair costs costly, but you are also putting yourself, your family or your employees at risk. Damaged wood is weakened by termites and will eventually rot and fall away.
Signs of termites
- Swarming: look for lots of discarded and broken wings. Windows, doors, vents, bathtubs, and sinks are common places to find termite wings.
- Mud tubes: look on foundation walls, inside walls, and plumbing pipes. Mud tubes (also called “termite highways”) provide moist places and safety from ants. They are made of moist soil and excrement and start around the diameter of a pencil.
- Damaged wood: knock on wood and if it sounds hollow and gives away easily, look closer. Termites are eating from the inside out and following along the grain of the wood. Many times you will find more mud tubes inside the wood along with living termites.
