Warm weather is when insects are most active, even insects that live underground and inside the wood of our homes. Warm weather gives termite workers all the energy they need to run like well-oiled machines. There are few things as bad as having well-oiled, wood-eating machines inside the wood of your home. That is why now is the time to get your termite protection in place. Here are a few other reasons you'll also want to consider doing this.
Subterranean termites are a multi-billion dollar problem in the United States. Here in Texas, we have the worst of the worst termites because the climate is ideal for the most destructive termite species.
When these wood-destroying insects get into your home, you're not likely to realize it until it's too late. Termite workers tunnel underground and inside wood, rarely exposing themselves to sunlight or the air. The only type of termite you're likely to see are alates. These are the termites we call swarmers. But these swarms don't last for more than 30 minutes. So they can easily come and go without detection.
Since termites are so sneaky, termite damage can be discovered long after it has caused cascading and catastrophic damage that could have you living in a money pit. At the very best, you'll be digging into your retirement savings and other financial resources to deal with the repair bills, and that is not the way to deal with unexpected surprises. You wouldn't do that with your medical bills. You wouldn't do that with the assets you intend to leave to your loved ones. You prepare for the surprises that inevitably happen in life. This is the strategy to use with termites. Don't let those wood-eating pests catch you by surprise and wipe out your savings.
