I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “a house is a mans castle.” This expression is a common one that should be taken very seriously. Your home deserves the utmost protection from the outside world. You want look after your home and have it be protected from everything, whether it’s a hurricane, burglars, or even the run-of-the-mill wear and tear. Now, those threats can be detected, which gives you more than enough time to protect yourself. But there is an intruder that can be rather difficult to see, find, and eliminate—termites. Termites can cause intense damage to your home, which makes them very dangerous. Not being able to see them coming is another advantage they have over you. This allows them to get started early, which means they can cause extreme damage before it is too late.
Know the Signs
Wood that is very easy to break is a sign of an advanced termite infestation caused by both subterranean termites and dry wood termites. For the most part, subterranean termites live underground and like to build mud tunnels so they can move around easier. They thrive on moisture and if you start to see a collection of mud tunnels around wood, you must call exterminators in Wilmington North Carolina.
Drywood termites, otherwise known as swarmers, live directly in the wood. Drywood termites do not need moisture to thrive, but if you see what may look like flying ants around wood, this is a sign of a termite infestation. Exterminators in Wilmington North Carolina are trained to know the signs of both types of termite infestations and know the proper means of elimination and prevention of both species.
