How Do Termites Infest Your House Or Business?

An infestation usually begins when a male and female termite find a suitable place to create a nest. They will first bore into wood or soil and begin mating. They produce offspring quickly, and their offspring are trained to do specific tasks. The first type is workers, which hunt for forage for food and build the tunnels. The second type of termite that can be produced are soldiers, which defend the colony from attack. Termites feed on the cellulose of wood, which is a source of simple sugars and their colonies only get bigger with time.

Termites usually cause a lot of damage because they are very skilled at going undetected for long periods of time. One of the ways that you might be able to discover termites is by their tunnels. Termite mud tunnels can be found snaking up wood from the ground below.

Prevention Methods

Termites can squeeze through the smallest cracks in your house. Once they’re in, they’ll start to eat away and can cause silent damage. There are several things we can do to prevent them from ever entering your home, like drilling slab joints between slabs and placing chemical barriers around your foundation.
