You know termites eat wood but what kinds of wood and what other materials do they eat to cause thousands of dollars in damage to homes every year? Termites aren’t craving the wood; they want the cellulose from the wood. Cellulose is a biological compound found in wood, primarily in wood and tree roots.
There are many important details when building a new home or business from deciding what style, exterior and interior finishes, and the list goes on. One that is not seen but very important is making sure the necessary steps are taken to prevent a termite invasion in your new home or business. Termites cause millions of dollars’ worth of damage to homes and businesses each year and new builds aren’t exempt.
Ants always seem to find their way to any outdoor barbeque or picnic and quite often into our homes. Fortunately, most are just a nuisance and don’t cause any real harm to humans or structures with the exception to the carpenter ant and the fire ant. These nuisance ants can, however, get into air-conditioner units and short them out during the hot summer months, so if you have any air conditioner problems, you might want to check the outside unit to see if ants are the issue.
Although your home may be spotless, unfortunately, you are still vulnerable to pest infestations. That’s not to say that homes don’t have a higher chance of infestations due to crumbs on the floor and cabinets and spilled drinks. Many times, pests aren’t invading a home looking for food, they are looking for shelter or water, which clean homes can supply.
