Delaware & Maryland Termite Treatment

Termite

How To Identify A Termite Infestation

Many homeowners have a fear of termites ending up in their homes. This fear is completely appropriate. Termites can cause a significant amount of damage. Termite colonies are often very large, and the pest eats wood and other materials, which can cost you thousands in damage if the problem is not taken care of immediately.

But how do you know if you have a termite infestation?

Someone unfamiliar with termites may struggle to differentiate this pest from other small insects like ants. However, if you notice the following signs, you probably have a termite problem.

 

  • Seeing mud tubes
  • Noticing wood damage
  • Finding termite droppings (called frass)
  • Discovering wings near entry points, such as doors or windows
  • Hearing noises in your walls

If you notice any of these signs or suspect a termite infestation, you should contact a professional pest control company, such as JEM Pest Solutions, immediately.

Why You Might Have Termites

Termites, like all animals, need food, water, and shelter. They will enter your home looking for these things. Most importantly, they prefer growing their colonies in convenient locations.

When the termite colony lives outside, they will often choose areas with lots of wood, such as a wood pile or rotten stumps. Because our homes typically have wood in them, they will attract termites. Termites will be especially interested in growing their colony into your home if they have an easy way to travel inside from their original location. This fact is why you should never store wood close to your home. If termites live in the woods, they will be more likely to find their way inside.

Some other reasons you may have a termite problem include the following.

  • Lots of moisture sources, such as poor insulation or leaks.
  • Cracks in your foundation
  • Previous termite infestation problems
  • Lack of regular termite inspections

Reasons To Treat Your Termite Problem Immediately

As already mentioned, termites can cause a significant amount of damage to your home. The sheer number of termites that may be a part of the colony is enough to cause major damage to your home and property quickly.

The damage termites cause can take many forms. For example, when they live outdoors, they can create tunnels in your yard that collapse easily. Instead, they can weaken wooden structures, which makes the structure unsound and dangerous if left untreated.

If left untreated, termite damage can cause a home to be condemned. While most infestations do not get to that point, they can be extremely costly to fix. Most homeowners will spend between $1000-$3000 to repair termite damage. Large infestations may cost even more.

Because termites can cause so much damage and cost homeowners a great deal of money, investing in regular termite inspections is a great investment. Professional pest control companies will come to your home at regular intervals to look for any termite problems before they spiral out of control.

FAQ’s

  • Do termites bite?
    The good news is that termites do not bite. These pests are not harmful to humans or pets. In fact, you will likely never actually see a termite, even if you have a large infestation. You are much more likely to encounter signs of a termite problem than the termites themselves.
  • What can you do to prevent a termite swarm?
    Termite swarms typically occur in the spring and early summer. During this time, young termites will leave their original colonies in search of a new home. Termite swarms are easy to spot because the termites fly together in a large group. When they find a new home, they lose their wings, which can cause a big mess.

There is not much you can do to prevent a termite swarm. However, if you notice termites swarming in your house or if you find a lot of termite wings near windows or doors, you should call in the professionals. While you may not have termites living in your home, it is better to be safe than sorry. A professional can evaluate whether the swarm resulted in a new colony inside your house. If you do have a termite problem, a professional exterminator can also help you nip it in the bud quickly.
