Avoid Termites This Fall With American Pest
The cold weather is on its way, but that doesn’t mean we can stop worrying about termites. If you have a termite infestation, the cold weather will have little or no impact on a colony because there are termites still inside your temperature controlled home, alive and well, thriving all winter long. And, the termites that are outdoors are digging further into the ground to stay alive and warm as well.
Termites Threat To Homes In The Winter
Since the weather has little to no impact on their colony all winter, they are free to continue with the damage that they have begun inside your home. They are feeding on cellulose that is found in wood, causing dangerous damage to the structure of homes, and causing billions of dollars in damage each year in the United States.
You might find termites scavenging in mulch or woodpiles, and creeping into homes through cracks and crevices in the foundation of a home. Usually, termites are never seen until after the serious damage has been done to a home and an infestation has grown out of control.
Getting Rid Of Termites
Getting rid of termites is a very hard task since termite populations can be enormous and they hide their primary colonies deep underground where no one can find them. A professional team of knowledgeable technicians may be homeowners only hope for eradicating an entire colony of stubborn and highly damaging termites.
There are many factors to consider when attempting to eliminate a termite infestation. You will need to get rid of every single termite and prevent them from re-infesting your home and property in the future. You may want to make your home less attractive to termites by:
- cutting down on the moisture in and around your home
- Keeping piles of lumber and other wood items away from your home, including mulch and rotting tree stumps
- Seal off any potential entry points that a termite can use to find it’s way into your home.
- Replacing or repair any damaged doors, window frames, screens, and vents.
