Asian Subterranean Termite in Hialeah
Asian subterranean termites are a prominent invasive termite species in Florida. This termite species has its origins in South-East Asia and has spread to many other parts of the world. They require a tropical climate to survive and flourish and Florida’s climate provides them the perfect environment for it. South Florida is the worst affected with these Asian subterranean termites. The instances of termite infestation have been growing over the years, and by the year 2040, it is expected that nearly 50% of all buildings in Florida will be infested by it. This article provides details of the damage caused by these termites and the various treatment alternatives.
The Asian subterranean termites are an invasive termite species which has an unquenchable appetite for consuming cellulose-containing food. They find cellulose in wood and are thus known to consume it voraciously. They can infest wooden flooring, furniture, trees, outposts, etc. and can damage them considerably. These termites consume the heartwood of trees and make them weak from within and they can be brought down easily in a storm. They also consume other items like fiberboard, paper, fabric, etc. which provides them cellulose.
Asian subterranean termites live underground and make mud tunnels and extensive network of termite nests. They can enter the foundation of your house through cracks, fissures, conduits, etc. These termites can cause severe damage to the foundation of your house and eventually compromise its structural integrity. When the structural integrity of your house is compromised, then it makes it dangerous to live in. Asian subterranean termites are known to cause damages worth $5 billion each year in the US alone and $32 billion globally. Most of these expenses towards damage restoration needs to be put in by the house owners only as they are generally not covered under insurance policies.
When you come across potential symptoms of infestation by Asian subterranean termites, you should consult a reputed pest control agency. If the infestation is left ignored, then the damage can increase manifold and become difficult to restore. Professional pest control agencies like Toro Pest provide free inspection services to their clients. This helps them to determine the nature and extent of infestation and work out appropriate termite extermination plans. They also provide SENTRICON certified termite extermination solutions which directly target the king and queen in the termite nest. As a result, the entire termite colony is eventually destroyed leading to a permanent termite extermination and resolution of the problem.
Worried About Termite Damage? You Should be.
Usually you don’t see termites or the damages they cause until it’s too late. In fact, the annual cost of termite damage to buildings in the US is more than $5 billion- greater than that of fires, hurricanes and tornadoes combined.
How The Sentricon® System Works
The Sentricon System starts protecting your property the minute it is installed. Termites are attracted to the bait and once consumed, lose the ability to eat, breed and survive. The end result is the complete elimination of the colony, including the queen!
What type of Termite is the Sentricon System designed for?
Asian, Formosan and Eastern Subterranean Termites.
