Are You Worried About Termites?

Termites are frequently referred to as the silent destroyers as most homeowners don’t notice the damage happening until it’s often far too late. The reason it’s so difficult to know if you have a termite problem right away is due to the fact that these insects generally work within the inner walls of a structure, but they aren’t completely undetectable if you know how to identify them.

The termite workers are pale, soft-bodied insects about one-quarter of an inch or less in length. At first glance they may appear as white ants, but aren’t actually shaped the same. You may be able to find dead termites or their wings near windows, heating vents, doors, sinks and bathtubs.

Another sign of termites would be mud tubes which are about the size of a straw in width. They would most likely appear near cracks, beneath flooring, around baseboards, on pipes, piers, chimneys, behind siding, plumbing and other fixtures. Another way to check for termites is by tapping along walls, baseboards, and windowsills in your home to see if there are any damaged, hollow spot of wood.

It’s important to try and find termite damage as quickly as possible, because if your home does have termites and it’s left untreated it can wind up costing you on average $3,000 to repair. It is estimated that each year, termites and similar pests cause an estimated $30 billion in damage to man-made structures in the U.S. alone.
