The Invisible Enemy

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

In the United States, there is an invisible enemy. That enemy lurks in the cracks of our homes, behind the walls. It eats away at our homes one milimeter at a time. That enemy? The termite. These tiny warriors may seem innocuous based on their size, but they can do a lot of damage. They can truly cause a lot of havoc on a home and can be a real nuisance. They cannot be dealt with effectively without the help of a pest control company.

Not convinced of the dangers of termites? Check out these scary facts: Termites have been around since the time of the dinosaurs. Although climate change caused the dinosaurs to die off, the termites survived and are still around today! That's a testament to the termite's ability to strive in just about any conditions, which makes it a real challenge to get rid of them!

Termites have wings that they shed once they decide to build a nest. What does that mean? It means that once termites decide to set up camp somewhere, they don't plan on flying way any time soon! By the way, termites congregate in groups of up to a million.

All of the termites on earth, weighed together, would weight more than all of the humans on the planet.

Termites feed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They lay an egg even 15 seconds and live 15 years!

Termites can completely reduce an average-sized home to a pile of rubble if left to their own devices in just two to three years!

Scary, right? Yes! Fortunately, you don't have to suffer that fate Thanks to pest control services can use their expertise, experience and knowledge to keep your home termite free. Pest control services can help to identify the presence of termites, along with the location of the infestation and an estimated number of termites that may be present. Using that information, a pest control company can make an estimate about how to proceed with getting rid of the infestation. It isn't always easy to identify termite nests because they can be very well hidden in the ceiling or the walls. A qualified pest control specialist, however, will know what to look for and how to get rid of them. If you suspect that your home is infested with termites, call a pest control specialist as soon as possible.

Getting rid of pests isn't easy, and it does require a high degree of expertise to be effective. The key thing for homeowners to do is to keep a close eye out for any signs of termite infestation. Even if you suspect that you may have termites in your home, it is so important to call in a professional to check the situation out. Left unaddressed, a slight termite problem can turn into a full-on infestation very quickly, and no one wants that in their home! Make sure the bed bugs don't bite in your home by taking all necessary precautions.
