December 05, 2022 - Termites
Termites are some of the most damaging pests that can invade a home.

The Types Of Termites That Infest Homes
There are several types of termites that homeowners can face, including:
- Subterranean termites: These termites live underground, and will access your home by building mud tubes or tunnels. Subterranean termites are native to the United States.
- Formosan termites: Sometimes known as "super termites," they are considered the most damaging termite species, causing billions of dollars of damage each year.
- Drywood termites: These termites can be found in dry wood. Because they live in the wood they eat, they do not build mud tubes.
- Dampwood termites: These termites prefer to dine on damp, moist wood.
Termites not only come in several different varieties, but have varying habits. Termite identification for infesting termites is key to establishing the best treatments for them. For instance, drywood termites require specific drywood termite treatment and not generic pest control treatments.

The Extent Of Damage Termites Can Silently Create To Your Home
Termites pose a risk of property damage in more than one way. While they directly damage structures by eating structural wood, they also pose the risk of considerable secondary damage. Termite-related damage can allow structures to warp and shift, introducing new damage on top of damage termites have already caused. Worse, termite-related damage might allow water into support structures, causing water-related damage in addition to termite damage. That is one of the reasons why the average termite-related damage repair costs $3,000, with more than half of the damage repairs exceeding even that number.
Don’t risk expensive termite repairs! Getting routine, professional termite inspections and preventive treatments is your best bet for avoiding expensive repairs later. Miche Pest Control has performed thousands of termite inspections, and our termite prevention treatments are second to none. Contact us today to see how we can help you avoid termite trouble.
Effective Quality Prevention Is Key To Successful Termite Control
Termite treatments can be effective in reducing your home termite risks, but they can only be effective if utilized with an understanding of the problem. Inappropriate treatments do not guarantee termite protection, and leave the door open for further infestation and home damage. It is critical to match the treatments with the termites. Further, short-term treatments don’t offer long-term protection, potentially leaving you with a false sense of security.
