Even the most well-constructed homes are no match against one of nature's most notorious pests: termites. Termites live by consuming wood and cellulose products, and when they infest a home, they can cause immense damage both inside and out. Once they gain access to your home, they'll work their way from your basement or attic to munching on your very infrastructure—significantly decreasing the lifespan of your home. If you live on Oahu and suspect you may have an infestation, the smartest thing you can do is call AAA Termite & Pest Control for a termite inspection.
If you're a home or business owner, here are a few things you should know about termite infestations:
- Concealed Nests: Termites are often referred to as “silent
destroyers,” because in many cases, no one realizes
there is an infestation until extensive damage has already been done.
They generally keep concealed, destroying homes from the inside-out.
It takes a professional exterminator to check all their usual
- Not Just Wood Damage: While termites prefer consuming wood, the damage they cause isn't limited to just that material. They can build nests from soft materials, like rubbers, plastics, and silicone, and they have been known to munch on cloth, carpets, and paper. They may even tunnel through your home insulation to move from place to place.
- Termite Treatments: Once a certified exterminator has confirmed the presence of termites, the next step is to eliminate the nest. AAA Termite & Pest Control uses industry-standard Termidor liquid and ground treatments, which will continue killing termites when it's time to seal up their entrances. Their termite treatment doesn't just eradicate existing colonies—it also prevents future infestations.
