Termite Control Services
Termites are barely visible to the naked eye, yet these pests can create thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home or business in a relatively short amount of time. These social insects live in colonies with millions of individuals and are attracted to homes and businesses in the Tampa Bay area that offer a supply of moist wood which they eat voraciously. Any sign of a termite problem in your Tampa Bay home or business requires prompt action in order to avoid extensive and expensive damage.
Signs of Termite Infestation in Your Home or Business
There are many signs of termite infestation that you might notice in your property. You might find piles of discarded wings from swarmers or you might even see swarms of the winged individuals. Termites build tubes of mud about the width of a pencil to allow travel between locations, and you might notice these tubes on the wood or around the foundation of your home or business. In their wake, termites may leave piles of chewed up sawdust like material near door and window frames. If you pound on the wood near a termite nest, the wood may sound hollow and you may even break a hole through the brittle and excavated wood.
Where Termites Are Commonly Found
Termites are commonly found around moist areas with plenty of fibrous cellulose material such as wood. The insects can also make their way through tiny cracks in concrete and masonry foundations. These insects prefer a warm environment and are most common in areas such as Tampa and Spring Hill where the climate is mild throughout most of the year.
