Woodworms. White Ants. Termites.
It’s easy to ignore a minor pest problem around the house. When it comes to termites, though, it’s important to deal with the situation immediately. When not addressed appropriately, termites can literally destroy your home from the inside out. In a short period of time, a colony of termites can cause thousands of dollars of structural damage. That’s why termite control is so essential to any home pest prevention program.
Did you know that termites never sleep? It’s one of many scary facts about termites. Instead of taking a break to rest, termites are eating 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Just think about how much damage a single termite could cause over the course of its lifetime.

Unfortunately, termites are incredibly common here in South Carolina. That’s why it’s important to know what to look
First, keep an eye out for mud tubes around the exterior of your home. Mud tubes not only provide termites with a source of moisture: they also serve as an entry point into your home. Watch out for buckling, splitting wood, bubbling paint, and other signs of water damage as well. Of course, this kind of damage is never a good thing on any home -- but it can sometimes be indicative of termite issues. When wood siding is compromised due to moisture or termite damage, the exterior of your home will begin to show signs.
Some homeowners attempt to manage their termite problem on their own. They set out bait, apply chemicals, and even attempt to use electrocution-style home treatment systems. Not only are these systems potentially dangerous for family and pets, they’re also rarely 100% effective. In the end, you could end up wasting both time and money while the termite colony grows larger and more destructive.
