Termite Treatment And Prevention – Is It Worth It?
Unless your home is constructed of cinder block and metal termites are a real possibility. Now, with winter coming to a close, homeowners more often than not will focus on inspecting certain areas of their home. The roof for damage from winter, the gutters to see if they are clogged but they give termites very little thought. It’s the unseen that can sometimes sneak up on you and have a tremendous impact on the structural integrity of your home.
“Termites are prominent in areas with very high humidity levels such as Northern Alabama.”
Considering how small termites are they can cause severe damage to your biggest investment, your home. You’re not fighting a single termite; you’re battling a colony of termites who are eating away at any and all wood associated with your home. One colony can have 1 million termites. Think about that for a moment. Now consider that termites aren’t selective. Any piece of wood will do, and the damage may be difficult to see to the untrained eye. Termites once in your home can destroy support beams, window frames and deep within the interior of your home floors and cabinetry. Left unchecked the damage caused by termites can be very expensive to repair.
