In the world of pest control, spring is termite season. These small winged creatures
are often mistaken for ants, but often prove to be a larger threat to your home. Termites
feed on wood, and may leave areas appearing to be water damaged, which can affect structural
foundations, furniture, shelves, books and more. While termites may be difficult to detect,
early and effective treatments can make the difference in minimizing damage and preserving your property.
Unfortunately, there is no quick fix for getting rid of termites in your home. Effective
treatment requires targeting the source and eliminating the colony within the ground. Any
termites found in the home have already swarmed and will likely die soon, at which point
they can simply be vacuumed away. The main concern is colony elimination to prevent future
swarming and to keep your property free of pests.
