Why Professional Termite Control Is The Right Choice To Protect Your Anaheim Home
June 02, 2022 - Termites
Subterranean termites are a multi-billion dollar problem in the United States. These insects live under the ground and come up to the surface to feed on sources of wood. One source of wood they can be found feeding on is the wood that makes up our homes and businesses, especially structures that are frame and stucco. If these insects get into your home, they can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs. It is best to deal with them quickly and effectively. This is the first of many reasons you should consider hiring a termite control professional to protect your property from these wood-destroying organisms.
Tips For Spotting A Termite Problem In Your Anaheim Home
If you have termites in your home, it's hard to identify before the problem gets out of hand. Here are a few telltale signs you're dealing with termites:
- Buckling wood near windows or doorframes
- Hollow-sounding wood
- Mud tubes near the foundation of your home
- Peeling paint or wallpaper
- Seeing a swarm or noticing discarded wings near doors or windowsills
It is unlikely you will notice a termite problem before it causes significant damage to your home. Therefore, when it comes to termite prevention, the best offense is a good defense.
Act Now, Rather Than Later
If you don't think about termites now, you could be dealing with them later. Professional termite control provides your home with essential protection that prevents the unexpected financial burden that comes with the discovery of termite damage. It is much better to pay out an expected amount now rather than pay an unexpected amount at the time of your life when you're looking to retire. The cost of repairing termite damage (assuming it is repairable) can eat into the savings you've set aside for your retirement. When you choose to invest in termite protection, you pay out a fraction of what you would pay to repair termite damage, and you pay it out a little each month.
Subterranean Termites Are Silent Destroyers
If you think you'll see subterranean termites before they do any real damage to your Anaheim home, you may want to do some research. The data overwhelmingly reveals that damage caused by these insects is hidden, and the warning signs are subtle. Our own White House had a termite infestation for years. Only when termite swarmers appeared on a wall in the West Wing that White House staff were alerted to the problem. If this can happen in one of our country's most guarded structures, it can occur in any structure. Our pest control professionals know how to locate evidence of termite activity and deal with termites before they can harm your equity.
DIY Termite Control Can Go Wrong
If you're thinking of applying termite treatments yourself, you may want to reconsider. Termite control is a science. You need to select the right products, apply them in the right amounts, retreat as necessary, and follow all established guidelines.
Termite Inspections And Treatments
If you apply termite control products, how will you know if they fail? One of the benefits a professional brings to the table is the ability to do detailed inspections for termites and conditions conducive to termite activity. When you combine professional inspections with appropriate treatments, your home is protected.
