Learn About Termites
Termites rarely announce their arrival. Although there are a few tell-tale clues, it’s always best to have a professional inspection done before it’s too late. To understand the situation, it’s helpful to know the player — hundreds of thousands of termites, swarming, multiplying, crawling, and digging.
The underground colony is a well-organized system of workers, soldiers, and of course, the queen. The workers tunnel through soil and into the wooden frames of homes, fences and buildings, eating and alerting the colony about new sources of precious cellulose. Termites are crucial to our ecosystem, consuming and recycling dead plant and wood material. To the colony, though, the wood in your home is just as delicious as any dead tree. You may not be aware of termites in your home until they have caused severe damage, reducing floor joists and load-bearing timbers to the equivalent of cardboard.
