Termites can destroy your home quickly. Termites cause millions of dollars of damage to homes annually...protect your property now!
You love your home. So you can see why pests might be attracted to it, too. And if they're termites, the results can be catastrophic. It's estimated that termites and other similar wood- destroying pests wreak havoc on U.S. buildings and crops to the tune of about $30 billion per year, with the average homeowner swallowing about $3,000 of that. These insects snack 24/7 and some species can lay up to 40,000 eggs per day. So it's important to catch them early. But they often don't reveal themselves until your wooden surfaces reveal the damage they've caused. So how do you catch them?
Even if your home is built with brick or vinyl, termites can bypass the exterior to enter and feed on ceilings, floors, cabinets, furniture – and even cardboard boxes or canvases. Signs of termite damage include wood that has buckled or is swollen, or you may even see the wooden tunnels the termites have burrowed. You might also find mud tubes that connect their underground nest to a structure. Or even droppings, which look like tiny wood-colored pellets. Often, you'll detect a moldy scent as well. If so, it's time to call Clark Pest Control for a termite inspection.
