Termites can cause serious damage to the structure of your home by attacking the wood in your property.
Termites will eat away at any wood – be it a wall, the ceiling or flooring. If left untreated, termites can seriously compromise the integrity of your home, leading to the possible collapse of the structure. It is essential to take immediate action at the first signs of termite infestation.
Termites aren't the only insects that can be a real nuisance in your home.
The most common wood destroying insects are Carpenter Ants and Carpenter Bees. Although they are generally harmless to humans, they can be harmful to your property. If left untreated, these little insects could cause significant damage. Signs that this might be your problem include:
- Termite damage sometimes appears similar to water damage.
- Outward signs of termite damage include buckling wood, swollen floors, and ceiling. You may observe areas that appear to be suffering from slight water damage and visible mazes within walls or furniture.
- Termites feed on cabinets, floors, ceilings and wooden furniture.
- Subterranean termites also access above-ground food sources through mud tunnels they create from saliva, mud and feces. These tunnels are located near the foundation of infested homes.
