The generally mild winter did little to naturally control spring pests.  When the warmth of spring hits and breeding gets into full motion, termites can become a very pesky issue for homeowners and business owners alike.  It is imperative to have an annual and complete inspection done.  Tiger Termite & Pest Control recommends being proactive and prevent the problem from occurring.

These tiny bugs are known as “silent destroyers” and can eat through wood, flooring, and even wallpaper faster than you can imagine.  They are often confused with some flying ant species and will choose cracks and crevices as small as a human hair to enter your dwelling.  Like most pests, they become active when the temperatures are warm but not strikingly hot.  They tend to do the most damage in the morning hours when most people are away and everything is quiet.  Complete and devastating structural damage can occur within as little as two years.

Our professionals at Tiger Termite & Pest Control know how to correctly identify and extinguish this costly problem.  Do not let your home or place of business fall victim to these destroyers.  You can save yourself thousands of dollars worth of repairs with an annual inspection.  Preventive treatments are also available.  If you are unsure whether you may have an issue, look for these signs:

  • Mud tubes on the exterior of the building
  • Soft wood inside that sounds hollow when tapped
  • Darkening or blistering of wood
  • Cracked or bubbling paint and/or wallpaper
  • Termite nests near the building
  • Small piles resembling sawdust near a termite nest
  • Discarded wings near doors or on windowsills

Our professionals know your home or place of business is very important to you.  We understand how devastating these pests can be. For your inspection and customized treatment plan, contact us today!
