Why You Need Termite Control
The annual cost of termite damage to buildings in the United States is greater than that of fires, storms, and floods combined. No home or structure is safe from termites. There's an old saying in Texas: "You either have termites now, or you will." That's pretty much the truth of it. Unless your home was pre-treated during construction, termites normally begin to show themselves within ten to fifteen years. Termites are extremely well organized and can find a way inside any structure, regardless of its construction. Telltale signs of termites are a swarm coming out of your structure or mud tubes around the foundation. Typically, you don't know you have termites until they swarm out because they eat wood from the inside out, hollowing it along the grain.
