February 07, 2023 - Termites

Fortunately, Miche Pest Control provides the most effective pest control, to quickly eliminate a termite problem on your property. Our experienced staff is well-equipped to handle the most challenging pest problem. Read on to learn more about these silent destroyers, the damage they can cause, and why enlisting the services of pest professionals will help you avoid significant termite troubles now and in the future.

The Role Termites Play In Our Ecosystem

Although they can destroy your wooden structures and other wood materials, termites play a critical role in nature’s ecosystem. Known as decomposers, these insects’ chief responsibility is to recycle decaying and rotting trees and help break down tough plant fibers to turn them into fresh, new soil. While no homeowner wants to see those dreaded termite tunnels forming within their structures, those same mazes of subterranean termites create underground aerates and enrich the dirt, regenerating forest growth with fertile soil. 

The Extent Of Property Damage Termites Can Create

Once a termite infestation is uncovered, most of the damage has already been done. That’s why it’s essential to recognize the signs of termites in your home early before the destruction becomes extensive, like discolored, drooping drywall, hollow-sounding wood, buckling floorboards, and areas that mimic water damage. You could also notice tunnels through furniture and walls. 

The eastern subterranean termite is the most common species. These termites dwell underground but create mud tubes to travel to and from their wood food sources easily. Most termite damage is irreversible and requires repair or replacing components, which can be costly depending on the specific issue. Structures with a high degree of termite damage can weaken over time and collapse if not remedied soon enough.  

If you’ve seen warning signs of these insects in your home, contact professional pest specialists to administer the most effective termite treatments.

Factors That Attract Termites To Homes And How To Remove Them

If you glanced around your property right now, you’d likely find plenty of elements that termites find attractive. Take a look at the list below to see if any of these factors seem familiar:

  • Logs or branch piles
  • Decaying or rotted wood
  • Old fence posts
  • Leaky sprinklers or hoses
  • Stagnant or standing water

Make sure to stack your wooden materials as far from the exterior of your home as possible. Many termites enter your home through cracks, crevices, and gaps in its foundation. Seal off these entry points as soon as you notice them. Contact professional termite and pest control to schedule a property inspection for the best way to address these insects.
