The Heat Is On ….. And So Is The Termite Pressure
When the summer season begins and the temperature rises across the country, homeowners should be attentive to termite pressure – a potential problem that can affect their single greatest investment. As termites can feed on wood, sheetrock, wallpaper and fabric, as infestation can possibly cause the structural dependability of one’s home.
Termites cause over $5 billion in property damage ever year. Warm weather combined with the increased moisture, which we experience in summer months, may increase termite pressure. Although termites do not pose a health threat like mosquitoes, ticks and rodents, they do pose a threat to your home. Summer is a perfect time to both inspect your property for these hard to detect pests and take proactive steps to try to prevent infestations.
Just as parents would not prescribe medicine for their children, homeowners should not attempt to remedy a termite infestation in their home. If you suspect termites in your home, contact a licensed pest professional whose expertise and technology can best rid your home of these unwanted pests.
