Protecting Your Home From Termites
Signs of termite infestations and how to address them
Although it is uncertain how much damage termites can cause to your home due to a wide variety of factors, in laboratory settings termites have been found to establish large colonies that can reach anywhere from 60,000 termites to 2 million in climates like Las Vegas. This means that getting ahold of pest control immediately is important because termites can consume a 2x4 piece of wood in just a few months. Finding early signs of a termite infestation is crucial to saving yourself money and stress down the road.
Contributing factors do include everything from the size of the colony, how many colonies an infested area has, and even the climate. Pest Control can be especially difficult in Southern Nevada due to our mostly warm and sunny climate. Because of this, termites are active for longer periods of time throughout the year meaning that they will be feeding more too.
Depending on the species, termite colonies take anywhere from three to six years to reach maturity. This means that severe damage can go unnoticed for long periods of time, sometimes as long as eight years!
Addressing termites early can save you money!
Termites eat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means that the longer that termite infestations go unnoticed and untreated, the more structural damage they will cause to the your home. Do not worry though, recognizing the signs of a termite infestation early can save you money and a headache later on down the road!
Most importantly having a Tri-x come out to your home regularly for inspections is important to keeping infestations at bay. Maintaining a dry and clean environment is also essential to deter other insects from making nests in your home.
