Got Termites? 4 Things You Need to Know About Them

If you've discovered termite activity in your home, take action immediately. Termites are more than a nuisance. They're a destruction team. Once inside, termites won't stop until they destroy your home. Before you ignore the termite problem, read the information provided below. Here are four things you need to know about the termites hiding in your home. 

They Don't Stop Eating

When it comes to termite infestations, you can't afford to postpone treatment. Termites aren't like other pests. These pests don't ever stop eating. That's because they need to eat enough wood to keep their colony alive. They also won't stop at the wood. They'll eat anything that contains cellulose. That includes books and magazines. That's why it's important that you start pesticide treatment at the first sign of termite activity. 

They Move to the Trees

If you have termites in your home, they won't stay there. If they discover trees in your yard, they'll devour those too. Unfortunately, the damage they do to your trees can pose a serious risk to your home. Once trees get weakened by termites, they can fall over. This is especially true during high winds. Unfortunately, trees can cause considerable damage to your home once they fall. If someone is nearby, falling trees can also cause injuries. Protect your trees and property by hiring a pest control company to get rid of the termites. 

They Can Cause Collapse

If termites have invaded your home, you may not know you have a problem right away. That's because termites can hide anywhere in your home. In fact, they can hide in your attic and behind the walls. While they hide, they devour the wood. Over time, they can undermine the structural integrity of your home. If that happens, your walls and ceilings may collapse. That's because the damage makes it impossible for the wood to withstand the pressure. Don't let termites cause your home to collapse. Hire an exterminator before termites have a chance to invade. 

They Make Selling Difficult

If you have termites in your home, get rid of them immediately — especially if you plan to sell your home. You might not realize this, but a termite infestation can stop you from selling your home. Your home needs to pass a termite inspection before escrow closes. If you found termites in your home, your home won't sell. Avoid escrow delays. Have your home treated for termites.
