Top things to Keep Termite Infestation Out Of the home | HiCare

Termites are small pests with a big appetite. They are considered to be one of the most devastating pests in the world. They are insects that usually feed on dead plant matter like woodchip, decayed wood (logs), leaf litter and soil. Often referred to as 'white ants', these crawlies are distantly related to them.

WHY SHOULD YOU WORRY ABOUT TERMITES?

Every home is at some risk - Homeowner insurance does not cover termite damages. Plus the cost to repair any damage which is caused by these termites is to be borne by the homeowner.

Your house may already be infested by termites- They are minuscule creatures that are hard to spot. They can be living and feeding on your property for months without you noticing it. By the time you spot it, the damage would've been done.

WHERE CAN YOU MAJORLY SPOT TERMITES INFESTATION?

  • Mud tubes on the floors or walls
  • Paint that is bubbling and/or cracked
  • Wood surfaces that are either sunken or cratered
  • Wings or bodies of termites
  • Since termites are cold-blooded creatures they can't regulate their body temperature. They usually gather together in the holes and emerge for food when there is a warm temperature. But this doesn't mean that they don't infest during winter or spring. If they find a warm spot, they continue to mate, feed and grow their colony throughout.

    WAYS TO KEEP TERMITE INFESTATION OUT OF THE HOUSE-

Since it is closer to the ground, it is easier for the termites to attack the spot.
