The Dangers of Termites
Termites are extremely common, with more than 40 species living in the U.S. alone. You can identify these insects by their soft bodies and straight antenna, as well as their presence around wood and sources of moisture. Termites have only one interest: eating. Their preferred food is found in walls and other structures, including support beams, floor joists, foundations, and more. And because they never stop feeding, there's no limit to the damage they can inflict.
Termite problems are quickly made worse by these insects’ high-speed reproduction. Each colony includes a queen, which lays up to 1,000 eggs daily. This enables colonies to expand quickly, overwhelming your home or business and causing serious structural damage and safety concerns.
Warning Signs of a Termite Infestation
You won't always know termites are present. One of the things that makes them so dangerous is that they work silently and quickly, going undetected in many cases unless you know what to look for. Make sure to pay close attention to indicators that you may have termites on your property, and call our New Jersey and New York termite team the moment you believe you have a problem.
Signs of a termite infestation include:
- Hollow-sounding wood
- Tunnels in wood
- Cracked or bubbling paint
- Droppings that resemble mounds of salt & pepper
- Swarms of winged insects inside or outside, as well as discarded wings
- Mud tubes on exterior walls, beams, and in the crawl space
- Stiff doors or windows that feel difficult to open
- Clicking sounds coming from your walls
It's essential to eliminate termites as soon as possible. The cost of repairing termite damage runs the average homeowner about $3,750, and none of the expenses will be covered by insurance. There are a few steps you can take on your own, such as eliminating sources of standing water and damp soil and sealing cracks in your foundation. However, you'll need expert termite control from experienced pest removal specialists if you’re dealing with an infestation.
Benefits of Termite Inspections
Getting professional help when it comes to termite inspection or control is extremely important for ensuring the health and safety of you and your family, as well as the longevity of your property. Termites are not particularly known to be dangerous to humans; however, termites can be especially problematic if you or anyone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma. Did you know that termites can make their way into your heating or ventilation systems? When this happens, termites can spread dust and other unhealthy particles into the air, and create unhealthy indoor air quality for you and your loved ones.
It's very common for families to underestimate a termite infestation. It's not always easy to know whether or not you have termites in your home, since termites will rarely come out in the open. As a matter of fact, it is quite common for termites to go completely undetected for months.
Benefits of a professional termite inspection include the following:
