What You Need To Know About Termites

The best time to detect termites is during springtime. The winged adult termites will come out of hiding to get some sunshine, and they will mate before they return to their underground colonies, probably for the rest of their lives. Termites can easily establish colonies in homes and buildings, and they can be there for years without being detected.

Termites usually build their colonies behind walls or paneling, or under floor coverings. They feed on wood, and they can cause great damage to wooden furniture or fixtures in your home. It is not easy to detect the damage done by termites because these creatures do not leave obvious signs of their activities. They usually form galleries inside wood structures, and they will feed on the spring wood and leave the outer surface intact. When you find out the damage that they have done, the wood structure is most likely irreparable.
