When a termite, out on the hunt for food, comes across a structure, they will tunnel through any open cracks to hunt that food down. And often times, much to our dismay, they can quickly and easily find just what they came for – the structural wood of your home.

Termites Can Fit Through Anything

Termites can find a way to fit through anything – they often come up through plumbing or utility openings, expansion joints, an even tiny cracks found in slab foundations.  Subterranean termites are small. In fact, they only need a tiny opening – as small as 1/32-inch- to be able to invade your home. That’s roughly the diameter of a paperclip. They tunnel through up through the foundation and wood support beams, also behind walls. Because of this they can go unseen until extensive damage has already been done.

Treat Termites ASAP

Once termites have been detected – either by you or a professional pest exterminator, you will need to address the infestation as soon as possible. Termites can cause a lot of damage, and quickly – they’ve even been known to destroy homes to the point of collapse because they can weaken crucial support beams.

Not Always Easy to Treat

Subterranean termites are not easily chased away. While they can be treated by a professional fairly easy, it is not something that you should try to do on your own. An experienced professional can help properly address a termite infestations well as the treatment you’ll need to ensure these pests do not stay.
