Utah Termite Control
Termites. Even just a few of these tiny insects can leave you with thousands of dollars of damage to repair.
Whether used for business or residential purposes, no wooden structure is immune to termites. Once present in the structure of your home, you likely won’t realize termites are there until some serious damage has already been done. Some of the most common signs of termite infestation are:
- Swarms of winged termites (this can occur anytime from spring to summer).
- The presence of discarded wings near possible points of entry into your home.
- Sawdust and other visible wood damage.
- Mud tubes present where exterior walls of your home meet the ground.
Know What You’re Dealing With
While there are three main types of termites (Dampwood, Drywood, and Subterranean), Subterranean are the most common termite you’re likely to encounter in Utah. These termites are often found in basements since they typically build their colonies underground, preferring the moisture that can be found there.
Prevention is Key
With termites, prevention truly is the best remedy. Termites tend to gain access to a home through the following points of entry:
- Foundational cracks or cracks near plumbing.
- Walls, piers, and any other element of the foundation.
- Expansion points on the exterior of your home.
