As temperatures rise, homeowners throughout Kentucky brace for unwelcome visitors: termites. To ensure your home is protected from the threat of termites and other uninvited insect tenants this season, call Guarantee Pest Control in Lexington for the best residential pest control in the area. They specialize in termites, fleas, wasps, rodents and bed bug infestations, exterminating the problem completely and leaving you with peace of mind.
Below, these bug professionals describe three signs of a possible termite problem this summer:
- Mud Tubes: Subterranean termites live underground and build tunnels as a safe way to travel to the nearest wood source, where they feed. These tunnels are called mud tubes, are about the width of a pencil, and are a common sign of a termite infestation.
- Termite Wings: A termite swarm occurs when mature termites fly away from the nest en masse to find new spots to colonize; after the swarm, the termites shed their wings. These discarded wings may land anywhere near your home, from window sills to spider webs, so be vigilant about inspecting your property—especially in the spring and summer when swarms are most common. If you begin to spot these in your home, a call to a residential pest control professional may be in order.
- Wood Damage: These tiny bugs can wreak serious havoc on your property by feeding on wood in massive colonies. Be on the lookout for any changes in the wood throughout your home—the varied signs can include a sagging floor, sticking windows, or hollow, creaking noises. Remember that termite activity can happen completely out of sight, so call Guarantee Pest Control for professional guidance.
