Termites are incredibly destructive and will swarm into new areas depending on weather and colony migration. They’re now found in practically every state except Alaska. Depending upon your area, you might find little impact and presence of them. Yet, colonizing can dramatically change from season-to-season. In a warmer year, millions can swarm where once there were none. And, if that happens, watch out!
They eat wood and may also destroy paper products, cardboard boxes, furniture, and various other items. Even buildings with steel framing and masonry walls are targets because of the wooden doors, window frames, support beams, cabinets and shelving.
Finding out your home or business has termites can be scary. You typically can’t see them, you can’t hear them and frequently only a trained inspector can find signs of an infestation.
Chew on these facts:
- A single colony can chew through a 2″x4″ board in a couple of months
- Termites cause billions of dollars in U.S. home damage each year
- Some species will eat their way through lead, asphalt, plaster and mortar to find tasty wood
