Contacting a professional pest control company is the best way to get rid of any type of termite. Professionals have special tools to determine the extent of termite damage by addressing moisture or noise in the walls. Termites can cause expensive damage in severe infestations and can sometimes threaten the structural integrity of buildings. In Texas, aggressive non-native Formosan and Asian subterranean termites are on the rise. These termites work faster and populate quicker than other termites. When dealing with non-native subterranean termites, time is of the essence as these creatures can tear through the structural beams, floors, and walls building within a matter of months. Properly stocked with the appropriate bait, these stations continue to keep termites away from your property for many years. If you live in an area like Austin and Houston where termites are an issue for property owners, prevention is a great option. It is much cheaper than treating an infection after it’s already happened and can last for years.
If you suspect there is termite activity, immediately call your local pest control company, such as Pest Management, Inc. to perform a free termite inspection.
