Got Termites & Need Some Professional Help?
TERMITE CONTROL SERVICE
Many people wonder when it’s time to call a professional when a termite infestation is suspected. Termites are very small and difficult to detect, so it’s not always apparent when they are present. In spite of their small size, they can do a great deal of damage. This can lead to costly repairs that may not be covered by insurance. Knowing when to call a professional is a step in the right direction to ensuring termite-free homes, buildings, and other structures.
Sometimes termites weaken structures like walls or baseboards that may accidentally get hit, exposing the damage. Oftentimes, wood damage isn’t noticeable because they work on the insides of structures where it’s dark. It may take a little more detective work to find hidden damage. Damaged wood can be recognized when it turns dark in color or begins to blister. It may also crumble when poked at with a tool, such as a screwdriver. A pest control expert will be able to search the entire property and devise a plan to get rid of them and keep them away.
Throughout the Southeastern US, the spring season marks the beginning of warmer weather, blooming flowers and swarming termites. In South Carolina, where temperatures are warmer year round, termites can breed and infest homes earlier in the spring. The warm, humid climate associated with South Carolina makes our state a great home for a few different species of termites. Understanding which species you are at risk for, and the signs of termite damage, is critical for homeowners looking to protect their investment.
