Why Homeowners Should Be Concerned About Termite Control

It is estimated that termites cause somewhere in the range of $30 billion in damages to homes every year. One homeowner can spend thousands of dollars in repairs when termites are discovered. The old adage applies here: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Homeowners who take termite control seriously and establish regular termite control with a reputable termite and pest control company like ECO Advantage will save themselves from falling victim to a termite infestation in the future.

Here in Fayetteville and Hope Mills, North Carolina, there is a pretty good chance that your home could become infested with termites, due to our very humid and hot summer months. In the winter, termites tend to burrow deep in the ground, but as soon as spring weather shows up, they emerge in droves. Because termites tend to slowly destroy the wood structure of your home, you may not know that you have a termite problem until months or even years after the infestation begins. Since termites eat wood, they can affect the structural integrity of a home fairly quickly. Many people only worry about termite control when they are looking to sell or buy a home. However, a termite infestation can become dangerous for homeowners and families, and if left untreated, termites eating through a home’s wood may not be the only issue that arises. A termite colony has on average about 60,000 termites in it. Those termites can create mud tubes to travel through, tiny holes in a home’s drywall, or wall discoloration and odor from their feces. In the end, a homeowner could be looking at major necessary repairs to their home just to get rid of a termite infestation.
