When you suspect termites, it’s time for termite pest control. Termites are ferocious insects, as small as they are, that cause significant damage to your property, especially when they’ve colonized and made your home their own. Wait, what? A tiny, two-centimetre insect can cause significant damage? Yes! Even more so when you’re dealing with Subterranean termites.
Thankfully, Old Island Pest Control is only a call away. So, if you’ve discovered signs of termites on your property, don’t wait any longer to have them removed!
Don’t Ignore The Signs.
Have you noticed some strange things happening in and around your home without explanation? Perhaps windows and doors that are suddenly more difficult to open and close, mud tubes, or damaged wood and paint? Maybe you’ve even found a few discarded insect wings or stumbled upon small opaque grubs in your home’s crawl space. If you have, you may be dealing with a termite infestation.
Ignoring these signs, thinking it’s only a seasonal issue, will only allow the damage to ensue further and make it more challenging to eradicate the infestation.
So, when you think something is brewing beneath your floorboards, don’t wait until it’s too late! Instead, call your local pest control specialist to handle the situation quickly and efficiently.
Where It’s Damp, There They Will Be.
Pacific damp wood termites truly live up to their name. As it suggests, these termites inhabit damp or rotting wood, so avoiding excess moisture in and around your house is the best way to avoid inviting them into your home. Wood that has had extended contact with the soil or even the pile of unused firewood in the back garden are common culprits of a termite infestation.
Although pacific damp wood termites are less destructive than subterranean termites, they are still a nuisance to have on your property and can cause damage to any part of your home’s structure that introduces moisture.
What To Do When Your Home Is Infested.
When you discover a subterranean termite infestation, the best thing you can do is to avoid disrupting them. Don’t break their mud tubes or spray any chemicals. If termites feel threatened, they will move to another location in your home, making it more difficult for pest control to find them.
So, instead of multiplying the complications you already have, call your local termite pest control specialist, like Old Island Pest Control, and let them professionally clear out the infestation without the mess.
