Termites cause billions of dollars in damage to homes across the country. These pests are often referred to as the silent destroyers because they work unseen for months, or sometimes even years, before property owners notice them. Unfortunately, when most homeowners do find termites, they have already caused major damage. Because of their stealth-like ways, it is very important to consider getting regular termite inspections to protect your home and property from costly termite damages.
We have all had those nights where we hear a bump in the night and fear the worst – a burglar invading our home, our safe haven. But we don’t think of the silent invaders, the ones that pose a potentially bigger financial risk. Yes, we are talking about termites in Texas.
All this talk about termites swarming in Texas made us wonder, do you know what swarming termites are? For someone who has not experienced a termite infestation in Texas or anywhere else for that matter, the words ‘swarmers’ and ‘termite swarms’ may be foreign. So to help clear things up so we are all on the same page, the Texas pest control team at Holder’s Pest Solutions would like to share some information on swarmers.
There’s nothing worse than the realization that you have been hosting termites who have been slowly feeding on the wood structures of your home. Many homeowners in Houston and surrounding areas have found that the humid conditions of Texas can be perfect for hosting a colony of subterranean termites. Not only are termites capable of causing major structural damages but they can go undetected for long periods of time.
