Out of Sight Is Out of Mind – But That’s Risky with Termites!

Aug 23, 2019

Owning a home or business comes with many responsibilities. Between continual upkeep, cleaning, mortgage, taxes, and weekly lawn maintenance, it is easy to think you have it all covered. However, hidden in your rafter, support beams, and floors could be a dangerous foe. This one lives only to do two things – chew wood and reproduce. You may not know the danger that lurks within your walls, but termites can become your worst nightmare if you ignore the signs of an infestation.

Take a proactive stance with termite control for your Fremont home or office. The licensed experts at Times Up Termites know the damage you are up against if a colony of these woodboring pests takes up residence. We offer free termite inspections and will customize a plan to protect your property.

What Is Lurking Unseen Can Cost You Thousands

Most often we think that if we cannot see something happening, then all is well. That is not the case with termites. Here is what is going on behind the scenes of your building’s structure that can cost you thousands of dollars if left alone:

  1. Continuous Munching: These pesky bugs chew on wood and cellulose 24/7. That’s right. They are hungrier than a teenage boy! They are never satisfied and will chew on anything with cellulose such as wood, wallpaper, and even clothes.
  2. Stealthy Sneaking: Termites do not need much room to crawl through. All they need is a crack or crevice as wide as the edge of a credit card. They will then tunnel through your home until they have created the haven they are looking for.
  3. They Leave Clues: Wings on windowsills are just one indication that you may need termite control. Others include droppings that look like sawdust and blistering wood flooring and walls.

Steps to Take Back Control of Your Home

The good news is that you can take steps to thwart these house wreckers and their progression through your home or office. First, remove mulch and woodpiles near your structure’s foundation. Second, ensure there is plenty of airflow in the crawl space to lessen moisture buildup. Finally, get a free termite inspection from Times Up Termite and then schedule regular termite control measures for your Fremont home.
