Termites are the most considerable pest disturbance to homeowners in the U.S. Every single year, termites cost billions of dollars in damages to homes, office building, and virtually any other kind of wood-based building.
Part of what makes the termite so destructive is their social behavior. Like bees, they live and work in "hive" type colonies. When they go unnoticed, their massive colonies can not only inflict significant damage but they can completely destroy a wooden structure (they can consume up to 15 pounds of wood in a single week). Keep in mind that, in addition to wood, termites can also eat dirt, plants, PVC tubing, fabric, and drywall – so they do not only pose a threat to the structure of your home, but your plumbing, and even your garden. They may also be attracted to other fibrous materials such as your cotton fabrics and paper products in the home.
On average, a termite queen can live for up to 10 years or more. If you currently have an infestation of termites, without professional help, they won't be going away any time soon. This means that you could be stuck with a termite infestation for years and be unaware until it is too late – it's how they've earned their nickname, the "silent destroyer."
If you suspect that your home has been subject to the damage of a termite infestation, a few signs that you may be right include the appearance of mud tunnels or patches called "coverings," inexplicably damaged paint, and warped doors. These are all signs that the termites have been actively consuming the wooden framing of your home and establishing a home territory.
Flying termites have long wings and are reproductive termites. If you spot a swarm of these or piles of discarded wings, you can be sure that the termites are reproducing in or near your home, and it is urgent to call Katy Pest Control right away.
