Termites feed on cellulose found in wood and products made from wood 24 hours a day, seven days a week and while they are active all year round the arrival of warmer weather tends to makes these damaging pests more noticeable. Termites are not the only wood destroying insect occurring in Missouri; however they are the ones responsible for the most significant amount of damage. In fact termites are responsible for billions of dollars in damages to homes every year throughout the country and the damages they cause are not typically covered by homeowners' insurance.
Because of their ability to maintain a low profile, termites are often able to avoid detection until they cause extensive damage. You may have termites infesting your home if you’ve noticed:
Swarming insects in or around your home
Mud tubes leading going into cracks in your foundation
Wood or drywall damage around your home
If you’ve not noticed any of these signs but are still concerned that termites are attacking your home or if your neighbor is experiencing a termite issue, contacting Rottler Pest & Lawn Solutions is the best way to make sure your home is clear of these destructive pests.
