As many southern state homeowners are aware, termite infestations can be a rather costly problem. The presence of swarming termites, which are winged reproductive versions of these destructive insects, indicates that you have an infestation somewhere on your property. If you find yourself dealing with swarming termites in your home, you can be assured you have an infestation attacking the wood in your home. Your best chance for success may come from working with a termite lawyer. Thanks to more than 35 years of experience, the pest control attorneys at Buntin, Etheredge, & Fowler, LLC can supply their clients with keen insight into numerous legal matters, including an infestation of termites.
What Are Swarming Termites?
Termite infestations begin with an underground nest. From these nests come swarming termites, which are typically most active during daylight hours as they make their way from the colony. While swarming termites are an annoyance, they don’t immediately cause damage to your home. Swarming termites within the home are an indication that a termite colony has made its way into the home and generally have been destroying the wood for some time before the swarm.
How Can I Identify Swarming Termites?
Swarming termites are nearly identical to winged ants, so it’s important to consult with a professional to identify the issue before moving forward. Often, homeowners can recognize the presence of swarming termites through an accumulation of wings around the home, as the swarmers will soon die when trapped inside. A pest control expert can properly inspect the remnants of the insect and give you more information about what you’re dealing with. However, don’t allow anyone to treat or retreat prior to contacting a termite lawyer.
Do I Need a Termite Lawyer?
Once you are confident that you’ve correctly identified the insects in your home, you may want to consider consulting with a termite lawyer. This is especially true for those who’ve received infestation reports that claimed their property was free of termites before purchasing and those who have contracted with a pest control company to protect their home. Termites can destroy a building if left unchecked, and removing them often entails costly treatments and disruptive repairs to remedy the damage they’ve already caused. Working with a termite lawyer will help you receive the compensation you deserve.
