As a homeowner, you should be aware of the threats of termites since these pests cause billions of dollars worth of damage annually in the U.S. The spring swarm season may be behind us, but different species of termites swarm at different times throughout the year. Subterranean termites are a particular type of termite known here in West Tennessee that can cause damage to your home or business, regardless of the season. AAA Termite and Pest Control wants you to know why year-round termite control in Memphis is essential to protect your investment.
What are subterranean termites?
Subterranean termites get their name from the fact that they burrow underground to build a nest and lay their eggs. And, these termites swarm during the spring and late summer months. It is for this reason that subterranean termites are a threat to homes Cordova.
As the queen termite begins to reproduce, it’s the worker termites, her offspring, that are a threat to homes and wooden structures across West Tennessee. Worker termites can travel long distances, as long as a football field. They travel underground where the soil is warm and moist, where they find their way under porches, into crawlspaces or basements. These areas of a home provide ample access for termites to enter your home and cause catastrophic damage.
Since termites prefer dark areas and often remain hidden out of sight in areas such as underneath flooring, behind walls, or in other areas you cannot see from inside your home. What’s worse is that as the worker termites begin feasting on the wood in your home, they recruit other workers to do the same. You may be unaware that your home has any termite damage until the structure of your home is compromised.
It is for these reasons that year-round termite control in Memphis is essential in protecting your home or business.
