Termite Activity: How To Identify The Signs

If your home has a termite infestation, you would know about it, right? Sadly, this is not typically the case. These pests invade properties by creating tunnels underground. If they can, they will invade structural wood directly from these tunnels. If they cannot do this, they might build pencil-width mud tubes up the exterior of your home. This is the first sign of termites. Other signs of termites come after these pests have caused extensive damage. These signs include squeaky floors, moisture spots on floors, walls, and ceilings, sagging floors, bubbling wallpaper, tight-fitting windows and doors, and other even more obvious damage to your home’s wood. To identify these bugs before they chew up your home, let us perform a quick inspection of your property. 

From Bad To Worse: How Termite Damage Can Escalate Quickly

It does not take long for termites to invade a home. It does, however, take a long time for them to cause considerable damage to interior structures. The biggest problem lies in how hard these pests are to identify. If you don’t identify these destructive insects quickly they will continue to reproduce and destroy your home at a more rapid rate. Sometimes colonies will spread through the process of budding or swarming. If a new colony is built close to your home, it might invade from a different angle. All of this is to say, the longer you let termites go unpunished, the more damage they will cause to your home. By the end, you could be facing tens of thousands of dollars in repair costs. 

Protecting Your Property: Effective Termite Prevention Methods

You do not have to invest in professional termite control to make your property less attractive to these pests. If you have some time on your hands, here are some simple and effective preventative measures to try.

  • Remove stick, leaves, cardboard, newspaper, fallen trees, dead stumps, and other wood or cellulose-based items from your property.

  • Address water damage inside your home.

  • Make sure your gutters are working properly.

  • Seal gaps and cracks in your home’s exterior foundation.

  • Repair damage to leaky pipes and fixtures.
