Yes! If you are a home or property owner in the midwest, you should worry about termites. Termites can cause safety issues in the home because they jeopardize the structural integrity of the building by chewing through wooden beams, doors, and walls. This damage not only needs to be taken care of as soon as possible, but it often comes with a high cost. Because termites are preventable with modern termite solutions, and because termite damage is so expensive to repair, it is most likely that termite damage is not covered by your home insurance plan.
Because termite activity might be happening in your home unchecked. This is because termites are hard to see. They burrow themselves deep into the wood and only come out for mating or out of another necessity. Subterranean termites build mud tubes from their underground colonies directly to the area of wood they are infesting. Therefore, termites can be tricky to spot until after the damage is underway.
As stated before, termites are preventable! In a high termite area, we recommend an annual check-up with a pest specialist. Professional termite companies have access to preventative baits that require licensing to distribute. During an annual visit, the specialist will refill baits and inspect your home for damage. This solution is relatively inexpensive compared to the thousands in damage that termites can cause. Additionally, it will relieve the nagging worry that your home could have an undetected infestation.
Ohio Pest Control offers preventative and treatment programs for different types of termites including the non-native aggressive Formosan and Asian termite populations. Don’t hesitate to call or schedule a consultation.
