The dangers of termites
Updated: Apr 5
Termites are harmful to structures, no matter the size or location. They can be found all over the world, even in places where many people wouldn't expect them. The first thing you need to know about termites is that they aren't alone; there are billions of termite groups worldwide! These insects only do one thing: eat wood. Even though this may seem harmless at first glance, it can cause extensive damage if not taken care of soon enough.
Termites pose serious risks to homes; they may seem harmless enough, but their eating of wooden structures can cause extensive damage. Their underground colonies aren't the only pest problem they pose; termites have been known to eat through electrical wiring, resulting in fires. Be sure to contact pest control if you notice any signs of pest problems!
If you're worried that you might have a termite infestation, there are some signs you can look for. Termites feed on cellulose, so they'll eat through wood, paper, and other materials made from plants. Here are some signs that you might have an infestation:
You see termites swarming around your home
You find termite wings or droppings near windows or doors
There is damage to the wooden framework of your home, especially near the foundation
The paint or wallpaper on your walls is bubbling or peeling
Your doors or windows are difficult to open or close because the frames have been damaged by termites
hear a clicking noise coming from your walls
