As we stated before, most home pests do not cause damage to the structure of your home. However, termites cause up to $5 billion in property damage each year! Did you know that termites feed on wood 24 hours a day and 7 days a week? Imagine how much damage is done in one week, one month, or even one year!
Termites are small ant-like insects. They live in colonies and feed on wood. They are most attracted to dark and damp wood, so it is important to ensure that your home is properly built and treated. If you have water leaks, it is important to repair them immediately so you don’t create a perfect home for future termites. If these precautions fail to protect your home from an infestation, contact the termite control professionals at Pensacola Termite & Pest Control immediately.
