The Warning Signs of Termite Infestations

Recognizing the signs of a termite infestation early on can help prevent extensive damage. Here are some warning signs to look out for:

  • Mud tubes: Termites often build mud tubes as pathways from their colony to their food source. These pencil-sized tubes are usually found near the foundation of your property, acting as protective tunnels for termites. 
  • Discarded wings: Reproductive termites—also called swarmers--shed their wings after finding a mate. Finding piles of tiny wings, especially near windowsills or light fixtures, is often a sign of a termite infestation. 
  • Wood damage: Termites chew through wood, leaving behind a honeycomb pattern. If you tap on the wood and it sounds hollow, that may be due to an infestation. This damage is not always visible on the surface, so scheduling regular inspections and maintenance may be valuable.
  • Bubbling paint: Bubbling or peeling paint can indicate moisture build-up within your walls due to termite activity. This often bears a visual resemblance to water damage and can be a sign of an underlying termite infestation.

The Risks of Termite Infestations

Termite infestations pose several risks, including:

  • Structural damage: As they feed on your wood, termites can gradually compromise the strength of your building’s structures. The result could be costly repairs. 
  • Decreased property value: Potential buyers are likely to be deterred by the presence of termites, and you may be legally required to disclose the infestation, affecting your property's marketability.
  • Potential injury: In severe cases, termite damage can lead to structural failure, posing a risk of injury. Collapsing woodwork and failing structures could potentially injure you, your family, or your employees. The result can be liability exposure in addition to the obvious physical risks. 
  • Increased stress: The thought of termites damaging your home can be distressing. The worry can weigh on you. Moving forward with a constructive solution by calling our office may bring some peace of mind.

How Termites Get into Your Home or Business

Termites are primarily attracted to properties due to the presence of wood and moisture. Any wood in contact with the soil, such as wooden structures, firewood, or debris, can serve as a pathway for termites into your property.

Additionally, termites are attracted to moist environments. Leaky pipes, poor drainage, and condensation can create ideal conditions for termites. Regular inspections and maintenance may be able to help prevent these pests from invading your property.

Termites and the Eco-System

We certainly understand how destructive termites can be to our human habitat. However, they still play a vital role in our ecosystem. Termites help decompose dead wood and other plant material, recycling nutrients back into the soil. Their infestations need to be dealt with—but they need to be dealt with responsibly, with an eye on the bigger environmental picture. 

Heritage Pest employs green termite control solutions that are designed to manage termite populations proficiently, without disrupting the ecosystem. Our environmentally conscious methods are aimed at giving your property a thorough cleaning, while minimizing our ecological footprint.
