Why Choose Year Round Termite Control In Lexington
December 17, 2014
Here are a few of the common questions we are asked about year round termite control. Maybe you've asked one of these questions yourself. Here's your chance to get the answers you've been looking for.
Do I need year round termite control?
The simple answer is yes. Termites eat wood 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. If you aren't protected, they will eat the equity in your home for breakfast, lunch and supper.
Don't termites hibernate in winter?
No. Termites do not hibernate. If they get into your home in summer or fall, they will be happy to eat the wood of your house all winter long. Winter inspections are essential to prevent several months of damage.
Can't I just call a pest control technician when I see the sawdust piles?
Termites don't leave sawdust piles. They eat wood. That is why many call them, "silent invaders."
Aren't there ways to detect termites?
Several. Here are the most helpful ones.
During the warmer months, you might see them come in their swarm, or find their gossamer wings all over your deck, or walkway, but in winter, they will already be working in your wall voids.
You can do an inspection of your foundation walls, and look for mud tubes. Termites make these tubes to protect themselves from the elements, as they travel back and forth from your home to an outside colony.
You can put your ear to your walls and listen for termite activity.
You can inspect the interior of your home for peeling paint, chewed furniture, holes, or other chew damage.
How do I protect myself from termites?
The solution to termites is not extermination, but prevention, through the use of scheduled inspections and Termidor termite treatments. If you live in Lexington, Louisville, Indianapolis, or Washington, get a termite damage warranty and a money-back guarantee, by going with Action Pest Control. The investment you've made in your home is too important to settle for anything less.
