In the world of insects, the termite is a relative of the cockroach. This insect has been deemed a costly and major nuisance. They can be found in every part of the world. Billions of dollars are spent in repairs to homes due to the devastation caused by these ferocious little creatures. Changes in the climate or certain harsh environments have not slowed the growth of these pests. They can change a palace into a heap of wood and rubble. If you want to protect your investments, there are certain steps that can be taken to lessen the catastrophic damage these insects can cause.
1. Signs of Possible Infestation
New homes and older homes all face the same possibility of termite infestation at some time. At first, it may not be evident that a problem exists, but as time goes on, signs like soft wood, wood particles or a termite mound on the outside of the home will be seen. This is definitely one pest that should be immediately eradicated through proper termite control methods. It is best to thoroughly check all wood furniture for signs of damage. Just because a chair or table looks structurally sound, does not eliminate the probability of damage.
2. Breeding Habits
To understand how this insect can cause so much destruction, an understanding of the breeding habits of these animals is needed. Since the female is afforded the luxury of laying thousands of eggs on a daily basis, the colony stays heavily populated. There are numerous species and none of them are on the brink of extinction. This is where the problem begins. If one is spotted, there are thousands that are in the colony. It can be a challenge for the homeowner to try to destroy them.
3. Using Home Remedies will not Work
There are numerous so called home remedies to reduce the number of termites. Millions of insects live in the colony and destroying a few thousand will not make the problem go away. Many of the home remedies may not be environmentally safe to use around pets or children.
4. Call a Professional Exterminator
There are many popular questionable remedies that are being used to kill termites, but this is not going to solve the problem. The solutions are only temporary and the pests will continually show up.
