Infested Investment

Thursday, July 17, 2014

A home is a large investment for any family, so it's difficult to process when you hear your property is infested with termites. Particularly in the southern U.S., homes should be regularly inspected for termites to avoid the consequences of an untreated problem.

There are common species of termites in the U.S. that prefer different environments and types of wood. Dampwood, drywood, subterranean and Formosan termites are all problems for homeowners.

Treating for an infestation is a process that should be handled by a pest professional but homeowners can do their part by taking steps to prevent pests in the home.
