If you have a termite problem, Allen Pest Control & Exterminators offers the best treatments in the area. Any structure can be a victim to termites, no matter when or where your home is constructed. Each year, termites cause more than $2 billion in damage by munching on homes. This is because they often go undetected until there’s a major problem.
An infestation begins with a reproductive pair choosing your home to mate and live in. They set up shop by boring into wood or soil and begin to mate. Their offspring is produced quickly and they are trained to feed the “parents”. There will be workers produced to build tunnels and hunt for food. The soldiers are in charge of defending the colony from any attacks. Termites feed on wood cellulose, which provides a source of simple sugars.
Because termites can squeeze through even the smallest cracks in your home, they will move in and start eating away causing silent damage. Drilling slab joints between slabs and placing chemical barriers around the foundation are a couple of ways we can prevent them ever entering your home.
Call an Allen termite professional if you suspect termites in your business or home. We will begin working immediately to ensure extermination and prevention of further damage.
