Termite swarms demand termite treatments FAST!

When the weather warms up this spring, you might start seeing “flying ants”.  Well, if you take a closer look, you might discover those flying ants are actually a swarm of termites looking for their next Shreveport Bossier City home to destroy. Sometimes you might see evidence of termite activity under a woodpile in the yard.  The wood that is touching the ground provides the termites easy access to a little snack.  Because of the cost associated with termite treatments, folks tend to avoid having them performed on their homes until they are “forced” to provide proof of a termite inspection when they buy or sell a home or they find out too late that they have been invaded.  Think of the termite as being “Out of sight, out of mind”.  Termites can reach any part of your house and weaken it beyond repair.  I’ve seen roof trusses on a three-story home which were so severely damaged by termites that the roof was sagging.  Imagine what the hidden wall studs must have looked like?

Termite control protects home value

Fact is, termite treatments should be an integral part of preventive maintenance to a homeTermites can destroy a home’s framework and wooden support beams quickly.  They not only eat wood but the paper off sheet rock and wallpaper among other things.  Termites cause over $5 Billion worth of personal property damage each year!  The easiest way to avoid this damage is to PREVENT it from happening in the first place. If correctly performed, periodic termite treatments and termite inspections can save your home from irreparable damage from a termite infestation!
