Pest Control Services Prevent Termite Infestation in Springfield Metro
Pest control services in the greater Springfield, Missouri area are gearing up for termite swarming season. Now that spring has arrived and the ground is warming up, termites begin stirring and emerging from their winter habitat in search of food and new structures to settle their colonies. Known as ‘silent destroyers’ because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring, and even wallpaper undetected, termites cause billions of dollars in property damage every year. It’s possible that at this very moment thousands of termites could be eating away at the foundation and walls of your home.
The most common termite species found in this area are Eastern subterranean termites. Termites number in the millions as they build colonies underground, and sometimes in moist secluded areas aboveground. Their distinctive “mud tubes” enable them to gain access to food sources and to protect themselves from open air. By far the most destructive species of termite, subterranean termites eat 24-hours a day, seven days a week, which can severely compromise the structural stability of a home by eating through support beams. Unfortunately, termite damage is typically not covered by homeowners’ insurance. For that reason, you should call Expert Pest Solutions to get started on protecting your property from potentially costly damage.
