Recognizing Signs of a Termite Infestation
Unfortunately, many property owners don’t recognize a termite or insect infestation until the damage has already been done. However, discerning homeowners will be able to identify certain signs of the pests before the damage becomes too much to handle. Look for discolored areas in your walls or peeling paint resembling water damage. Small holes in drywall or walls that sound hollow when tapped might also indicate termites. Your floors may show telltale signs as well. Be sure to check for buckling in wood floors, loosening tiles, or squeaky floorboards and report them to Pest Patrol Inc as soon as possible.
Help with Preventing an Infestation
At this point, you may be thinking preventing an insect infestation seems a lot easier than eliminating one. Luckily, you can take several steps to ensure your home or business isn’t as attractive to termites looking to take up residence. If you’re still in the construction phase of your property, be sure to use a concrete foundation with a ventilation space between the structure and the ground beneath. Then, take care to seal any exposed wood or cover it with metal. However, we’re not all in the middle of a construction project. You can prevent termite and insects in your all-ready built structure by maintaining your gutters, filling cracks in the foundation, addressing leaks right away, ensuring vents are clear, and keeping wood storage away from your home.
