The Signs: What causes Termite Infestations?
Termites can be a nuisance that every homeowner dreads. Unfortunately, as winter approaches, homes may be at risk of termite infestations. Knowing the signs and causes of these pests is essential to keep them away and stop them from doing expensive damage.
Identifying the Termite Problem: What to look for
Winter is the ideal time for dealing with a termite problem, and the best thing to do is to know how to identify the issue. To ensure you’re treating the right problem, here are some things to look out for that could indicate a termite infestation.
The most common sign of a potential infestation is wood damage, such as wood that’s become soft or has holes. This is usually accompanied by sawdust-like material known as “frass” near the damaged area. You may also notice mud tubes on walls or wooden beams around your home; termites use these to move from one place to another without exposing themselves to air and light. There may also be swarms of winged termites inside or outside your home that can indicate an active colony nearby.
Termite Treatment: Our Process
Here at University Termite & Pest Control, we understand that termites can cause severe damage to your home and property if left untreated. That’s why it’s so important for homeowners to invest in professional termite treatment as soon as possible. But what is the process? Knowing what to expect can help ease any concerns about having your home treated for termites.
At University Termite & Pest Control, we check your home and property to find all the places where termites have been active. Once we know where the termites are, we’ll start a complete treatment plan, which often includes liquid and bait treatments to eliminate both Subterranean and Drywood Termite Colonies. All products used are EPA-approved for use around people, pets, plants, and other wildlife.
Types of Termites
There are two main types of termites: Drywood and Subterranean. Drywood termites live in dry, above-ground wood, such as doors or window frames. Subterranean termites live mostly underground in damp soil, but they can get into homes by traveling through their shelter tubes. Subterranean termites need soil moisture to stay alive, so they tend to live near foundations or porches where they can get to moist soil easily.
