Termites infest more than 5 million homes in the US each year, causing more than $5 billion in damages. They work 24 hours a day, devouring cellulose material found in wood, paper, drywall, and other materials in your home to provide for their colonies. The scariest part about termites is the fact that their destruction goes unnoticed for so long. By the time any physical evidence of an infestation is found, the damage they have caused is often extensive. For this reason alone, it is absolutely crucial to call a termite exterminator as soon as you suspect termites in your property, if not before for preventative treatments and inspections.
When is termite treatment necessary?
If you’ve come across some common signs of termites in your property, it’s essential to get treatment as soon as possible. Chances are, you already have a full-blown infestation! That said, it’s equally if not more important to get preventative termite treatments. Even if you think that your home isn’t threatened by termites, it’s important to get regular inspections by a professional pest control company.
