Termites are “Subterranean termites” which also happens to be the most common and troubling type of termite that exists. These termites are responsible for roughly 95% of residential and commercial building damage from termites. The other kind of termites are dry wood and damp wood; as the name applies, dry wood termites do not require moisture to survive but it is required for damp wood termites.
Termites have learned to survive through the worst of conditions and only need dampness (ideally from lumber) to stay alive. However, timber is not mandatory for them to thrive — when in survival mode, they usually stick with wet soil. They’ll work their way around the soil, surviving from its moisture, and ultimately find damp wood which is where they start their “feast”.
Two key warning signs to look out for include:
1) Swarmers – A Leading Indicator of Termite Infestation
2) Mud Substance – A Very Visual, Traceable Sign of Termites
WHY TERMITE TREATMENT IS ESSENTIAL IMMEDIATELY
Termite colonies can manifest at varying sizes. Some might have 50,000 termites while others could have 5 million or more. The difference is staggering because your entire home could be destroyed within only a few months time. A termite infestation happens fast too. In a 15-year span, a Queen could lay more than 165 million eggs (roughly one every 30 seconds).
Termite treatment is needed from the moment that the first termite is discovered. Most residents will not actually have home insurance coverage that acts against termites. The reason for this is because it’s believed that home maintenance can help prevent a termite infestation from happening in the first place.
