Pest Control Challenges: Termites

By Stella Richard Subscribe to RSS | December 27th 2011 | Views:

While wooden furniture can be easily repaired due to wear and tear, there are few things you can do if you home is infested with termites. Not only are termites bad for the health of your furniture and the people using them, but they are extremely problematic to day-to-day living.

Without professional pest control help, it can get extremely difficult to get rid of your infestations and you may also be risking the integrity of your home in general.

1. Recognizing a Termite Infestation

You need to be able to identify the symptoms so as to say, when it comes to identifying a possible termite infestation in your home. For starters, if your home is infested, you will most likely come across some winged termites inside your home. You can recognize them with the help of their elaborate mud tunnels which are created around the foundation walls and floorings.

Sometimes it may not be this evident, but if you notice any kind of structural damage in your wooden furniture, you probably have a termite infestation. If you suspect any such thing, immediately call in the experts who will be able to detect any such possibility. It is difficult for the non-experts to do so because termites typically eat the wood from the inside which makes it difficult for them to detect.

Protecting Your Home from Termites:

Vancouver Pest Control recommends you follow these guidelines to protect your home from any unwanted and dreadful infestations.

1. As a measure of precaution, it is strongly suggested that you hire pest control experts and schedule regular termite inspections. Having these experts come in once or twice a year helps you keep track of any possible signs of infestations and also get rid of any colonies that may have cropped up since your last inspection.

2. Besides your furniture, which can be treated before hand to curb any possible infestations; make sure that all other wood products are kept as away from your home as possible. Especially if you suspect an infestation in any furniture piece, get rid of it before it spreads into your wooden flooring and other furniture pieces.

3. Termites are most common in dead trees and shrubs. Additionally, dig out dig out the roots of any dead trees and dispose them appropriately. If there are any in your outdoor area, trim them to avoid unwanted results. In case you are too late, it is time to call in the pest control experts.

Also remember that termites thrive on wet soil and wood. Make sure that you avoid gathering of water around these areas as much as possible. Rectify all leakages and other problems that are a cause of moisture in your home and outdoor space to make sure you do not breed termites.
