Winter Springs Termite Prevention
Winter Springs, a quiet suburb in the Greater Orlando area, is a pleasant place to live. The year-round warm weather lets residents enjoy the outdoors at any time of year. Unfortunately, termites like the warm weather, too. That means residents of this community need to be vigilant about termite prevention. Professional Winter Springs termite prevention services can help.
Termites are incredibly destructive pests. Every year, they’re responsible for $5 billion worth of property damage in the United States. Since they’re secretive, they can remain undetected for a long time. Eventually, they can compromise the structural stability of a home. Controlling a termite infestation—and fixing all the damage they cause—can be an expensive and time-consuming venture. It’s much easier and more affordable to keep them from moving into your home in the first place.
There are four basic types of termites that call the Winter Springs area their home. Control and prevention methods differ for each type of termite.
- Eastern Subterranean Termites: These are the most common type of termite in the United States, and they’re especially common in the warm, humid Southeast. Winter Springs is an area of high risk in Florida. These termites live in underground colonies and are very secretive.
- Powderpost Termites: These termites commonly attack wooden furniture, but they’ll feast on the wooden structures of buildings, too. No dry wood in your home is safe; these termites will even eat picture frames!
- Dampwood Termites: As their name suggests, these termites love to live in damp wood. If your home has any water damage or sources of free water, these pests could move in.
- Formosan Termites: These fearsome termites are an invasive species in the United States. Their colonies can contain as many as several million termites. Since the colonies are so large, they can pose serious threats to buildings in Winter Springs. It’s essential to keep these destructive pests away.
