Asian Subterranean Termite in North Bay Village
North Bay Village has been affected by Asian subterranean termites for some time now. They have become a menace for house owners due to the extensive damage they cause. The nature and extent of damage caused by them and treatment options for their extermination are discussed below:
Damage Potential of Asian Subterranean Termites
The Asian subterranean termites have been a persistent problem for house owners in Florida for many years now. Florida has a tropical climate which provides sufficient warmth for these termites to thrive and flourish. It is also believed that since the late 1980s, the use of chemicals like chlordane and heptachlor was stopped, the termite problem became worse. These chemicals had termite curtailing properties. Asian subterranean termites have spread their wings in Florida and are more dominant and damaging in South Florida. They cause damage worth $32 billion each year globally, while the corresponding figure for the US alone is $5 billion. The fact that most insurance providers do not cover damages caused by termite infestation in their policies, makes it tougher for house owners to deal with the restoration expenses.
They can damage wooden items, paper, fabric, fiberboard, etc. which provides them high levels of cellulose, which is their major food source. These termites live in underground colonies which help them to get adequate moisture for their survival. They are known to dig deep underground tunnels. They can get access to the foundation of your house through gaps, cracks, conduits, etc. Once they have reached the foundation, they start damaging it and can quickly compromise the structural integrity of your house. This can render your house dangerous to live in and will require immediate attention from experts. The Asian subterranean termites also infest trees and voraciously eat the heartwood which makes the trees week. It slowly kills the trees over time.
Prevention is the best strategy to deal with termite infestation. The earlier you identify the infestation, the better the chances of complete termite extermination are. On identifying signs of infestation, it is important that you consult an experienced pest control agency and not try to deal with the problem by yourself. You can consider consulting Toro Pest, which is a leading pest control company. They provide free inspection which is not offered by all pest control companies. They offer SENTRICON certified solutions for dealing with the problem of termite infestation. These solutions are highly effective for termite extermination and directly target to kill the king and queen in the termite colonies. Once the king and queen are killed, the termite colony is destroyed and you get a permanent solution from termite infestation.
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!
