Did you know that termites are one of the biggest contributors to home destruction? It’s true, termites have been reported to costing over $1 billion each year in damages. Believe it or not, a typical termite colony can consist of over a million termites each! Workers, soldiers, swarmers (winged termites), and the termite queen (who can lay thousands of eggs per day and live up to 50 years) all work together in their search for wood.
The best way to fight a termite infestation is to put preventative methods into place beforehand. Since termites are drawn to wood, keep all wood scraps out of your yard and especially out of your soil since termites live in huge underground tunnels and try to keep all fallen branches and twigs off the ground as well. Be cautious with your use of mulch and try to keep it away from your house wall and start using storage containers to store any wood outdoors.
Besides wood, another source of termite sustenance is water. Since heavy vegetation can produce a lot of moisture, trim your yard regularly to make your home as termite-unfriendly as possible. Also, be on the lookout for any water leaks around your property and areas that accumulate a lot of moisture such as roof gutters.
One last tip regarding termite prevention is to prevent direct access into your home. Be sure to inspect your house regularly and seal all entry points such as small cracks and holes in your foundation. Getting your home inspected by a termite professional once in a while is also wise and can save you money in the long run. Remember that termite infestation can be insanely expensive so catching any termites early is incredibly beneficial.
If a termite specialist inspects your home and determines that fumigation is required, don’t worry as Preferred Pest Control offers the best fumigation services here in Orange County.
In case your don’t know, fumigation is a procedure where large tarps seal and cover your home and warning agents are released to eliminate the termites within the wood. The fumigation process can take up to 24 hours or more depending on the severity of infestation and once completed, Preferred Pest Control uses gas monitoring equipment to test the air to confirm the safety of re-entering the building.
If you suspect you have a termite infestation or just haven’t had your home inspected for termites in many years, please call our termite experts at Preferred Pest Control. In coastal areas, especially Southern California, drywood termites are very common and if your home is 10+ years old, chances are high that you might have termites living on your property. Save yourself a lot of money early and invest in a home inspection from Preferred Pest Control today!
