While termites are not harmful by spreading disease as some other insects, they can cause a lot of costly damage. Termites are known to destroy roofing and wall framing timbers within a few months in a worst case scenario. According to the National Pest Management Association, they cause $5 billion per year in total damage. This means that as a home or business owner, you should be aware of the termite risk to your property, especially since most insurance policies do not cover termite damage.
According to Termite.com, Parker and its surrounding areas are at high risk for subterranean termites. Subterranean termites are outdoorsy and like to nest in the loose soil near your home or business. They’re ambitious little creatures that create tunnel networks extending over massive distances to gain access to food above the surface of the ground. They can be highly secretive, preferring to enter a building through areas inaccessible to inspection such as through fire heaths, expansion joints and cracks in concrete slab flooring, and in-fill patios. Other common termite entry points include: cracks in the foundation around plumbing, hollow block walls, and foundation walls and piers.
Some signs that could signal a termite infestation include:
If you discover any of these signs on your property, it’s a sure sign of a termite infiltration. Take caution. You should NOT disturb the termites but instead call a termite containment specialist such as Parker Pest Control Specialists and arrange for a professional inspection and application of a termite bait to the live termites. If eastern subterranean termites are shaken up or disturbed, they often will abandon the associated area and move on to secretly cause damage in other areas in the building or dwelling. Catch their activity early and treat as soon as possible to prevent greater damage and infestation.
