The Extent Of Damage Termites Can Cause To Your Home

You need to consider how termites damage wood and the extent termites can damage your home if you hope to avoid termite damage. When you find termite activity, the following facts will help you decide what to do about them.

  • When you find a handful of termite workers, you can be fairly certain that there are thousands more that you can't see.
  • Termite workers feed on more than one food source at a time. They can feed on the wood of your home while they feed on a dying tree, old fence, or pile of dead branches in your yard.
  • Termite workers travel as far as the length of a football field in search of food sources, which means more than one termite colony can feed on your home simultaneously. 
  • Termites prefer water-damaged wood. You are at greater risk if your home has wood compromised by exposure to water.
  • Old homes are at greater risk because insect control materials wear out over time.
  • Termites are simple organisms that don't require sleep. They can feed on your property 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

At the first sign of termite activity (or long before you see warning signs), it is best to have a licensed termite control professional guard your property against termite damage. If you haven't seen warning signs yet, there are ways you can reduce the risk of termites. Let's look at these next. 

Factors That Attract Termites And How To Remove Them

Termites aren't equally attracted to every property. Some factors make some properties more interesting than others. It is best to remove these, whether you have professional termite control products installed around your property or not.

  • Remove termite food. Wood sources resting on the soil provide an easy food source for termites. Termites can access food sources like this without revealing themselves. Once inside, they'll start bringing lots of food back to their nest. In response to plentiful food, the queen will produce more workers, and workers may develop into reproductives and create a satellite nest near the food. Keep all wood up off the ground. For example, put dead branches in a plastic or rubber bin, create an elevated platform for campfire wood, and stack objects on plastic pallets in the backyard rather than wood pallets. 
  • Address wood-to-soil contact on structures. Do you have a deck that has wooden posts that go deep into the ground? Consider putting those posts on concrete so you can see shelter tubes created by subterranean termites. Do you have a wood fence? Consider getting a vinyl fence. Many vinyl products look like real wood but are not food for termites.  
  • Address moisture. Moisture problems can lead to wood rot, which attracts termites. Damp soil is also an attractant. Subterranean termites are drawn to damp soil because it helps them stay hydrated.
  • Seal entry points. Drywood termites get into your home through aerial openings. Use a caulking gun to seal these entry points and keep drywood termites out.
