As the weather warms up in the DFW area, so does the risk of termite infestations. These small pests can cause significant damage to your property if left unchecked. At Paragon Pest Control, we want to make sure that you are equipped with the knowledge to protect your property from these pesky invaders. In this blog post, we will go over the signs of termite infestations and how to prevent them from damaging your property.
Signs of Termite Infestations
- One of the most obvious signs of a termite infestation is the presence of termite swarmers. These winged insects will swarm in large numbers, typically during the spring, as they search for a new place to establish their colony. If you notice termite swarmers in or around your property, it's a sign that you may have a termite infestation.
- Another sign of a termite infestation is the presence of mud tubes. These tubes are constructed by termites to protect their colony from predators and to provide them with moisture. You may find mud tubes on your property, particularly in areas where the ground meets your home's foundation.
- If you notice any of these signs, it's important to contact a professional pest control service immediately to prevent any further damage.
Preventing Termite Infestations
Preventing termite infestations is key to protecting your property from damage.
Here are a few tips to keep termites at bay:
- Remove any wood debris from your property, including fallen trees, branches, and stumps.
- Keep firewood away from your home's foundation and elevated off the ground.
- Repair any leaks in your home's plumbing to reduce moisture levels.
- Install proper ventilation in your attic and crawl space to reduce moisture levels.
- Seal any cracks or openings in your home's foundation and exterior walls.
- Regular inspections from a professional pest control service can also help to prevent termite infestations before they become a major problem.
