Did you know that at maturity, a termite colony’s queen can lay more than 2,000 eggs a day! Not only that but she can live for up to 45 years!
What is the potential extent of termite damage?
Termite species can do great damage to unprotected buildings and other wooden structures. Once termites have entered a building, they do not limit themselves to wood; they also damage paper, cloth, carpets, and other cellulosic materials. This means that termites are more than a nuisance pest, the cause significant structural damage that results in both a financial burden and a safety risk.
The cost of termites isn’t just limited to the price of termite extermination and termite prevention, it can be far more expensive if termites that have been allowed to remain long enough to destroy wood that supports the house and other valuable items. Treatment by the homeowner for the control of termites is virtually impossible, and termite control is absolutely essential. Additionally, if termites have eaten through wood that supports floors, ceilings, walls and staircases then a safety hazard could be present.
How do I know if I have termites?
Their habit of remaining concealed often results in their presence being undetected until the timbers are severely damaged and exhibit surface changes. We recommend that home owners have their homes inspected at least every 3-4 years. Wood dust, tunnels, mud tubes, and seeing termites inside or outside is an indication that your home is at risk of being damaged by termites. If a termite infestation is found, Spott Pest Prevention will design a termite prevention plan for your property that will control a current infestation and establish a chemical barrier, or baiting system, around the structure to take care of future termite infestations.
