Austin Termite Control

How Termites Create Invasions upon Your Home

What people do not realize is that termites do not merely tear down buildings but construct their own tunnels and tubes in the process. These intricate structures and shelters, built from mud and stacked high or long across different surfaces and foundations, allow them to find access to wood. 

If your Austin home or business is not built into a completely solid concrete basement, crawl space, or slab foundation, it will be a prime target for termites. Even if an opening is 1/32 of an inch wide, then a termite can find its way in. They are known to invade buildings through expansion joints, hollow bricks, cracks along metal walls and floors, and concrete blocks.

What Are Signs of Termites?

One of the biggest problems of termites is that they can create a massive amount of damage to your property’s foundations behind the scenes, without you ever even knowing until it is too late. This is why they are often given the nickname of the “silent destroyers,” since they could completely chew through major wooden structures without being detected.

Contact the Austin termite control specialists if you notice any of the signs of below:

  • Tubes made from mud nestled in your home’s foundation
  • Areas in the wooden structures of your home that sound hollow or even feel soft
  • Wing fragments, usually near the windows or doors, showing where termite swarms have entered the property
  • Little piles which look like sawdust but are actually heaps of droppings

Commonly Asked Questions

Why is termite control important?

Termite infestations can cause significant damage to buildings and structures, including wooden furniture, flooring, and structural components. By implementing effective termite control measures, property owners can protect their investments and prevent costly repairs. Additionally, termite control helps maintain a safe and healthy living environment by eliminating the risk of termite-related health issues.

How do termites enter buildings?

Termites can enter buildings through small cracks, gaps, or openings in the foundation, walls, or roof. They are capable of squeezing through tiny spaces and can even build mud tunnels to access above-ground structures. It is important to regularly inspect and seal any potential entry points to prevent termite infestations.

Can I get rid of termites on my own?

While there are DIY termite control products available, it is generally recommended to seek professional assistance for effective termite elimination. Termites can be difficult to completely eradicate, and improper treatment methods may only temporarily solve the problem, allowing the infestation to return. Professional termite control experts have the knowledge, experience, and specialized equipment to effectively eliminate termite colonies.

How often should termite inspections be done?

Regular termite inspections are crucial for early detection and prevention of termite infestations. It is generally recommended to have a professional termite inspection conducted at least once a year. However, in areas with high termite activity, more frequent inspections may be necessary. Additionally, if you notice any signs of a termite infestation, such as mud tubes or visible damage, it is important to schedule an inspection immediately.
