Why should you be concerned about pests? Here are just a few reasons you should be concerned about pests and how they can affect the value of your property and your families’ health.
Florida Termite Control:
It is important to understand that termite infestations can go unnoticed by homeowners until a large amount of damage has already been done. You may not know it, but in the US alone termites cause more damage to homes than fires, floods, and storms. Termite damage runs into billions of dollars every year. All homes are vulnerable to termites and because homeowner insurance does not protect against termite damage it is important to make sure you protect your home to avoid paying the high cost of repairs due to termite damage.
Termites can enter your home through cracks as small as 1/64”. Typical entry points include roof vents, siding and window joints. Termites primarily feed on wood, but they can also cause damage to paper, books, insulation, and even swimming pool liners and filtration systems. Termites can injure living trees and shrubs, but more often they invade woody plants that are already dying. Any building can become infested at any point in time but termites are of particular concern when you are preparing to buy or sell a property since a Florida termite inspection or infestation report is normally required as a condition of sale. Apart from the high cost of damage termites create they can also result in a great deal of emotional stress when having to deal with thousands of winged insects inside your home.
Roaches & Ants:
Roaches can trigger allergies and asthma as well as contaminate food with certain bacterial diseases that can cause food poisoning. Roaches can foul food, damage wallpaper and books and produce an unpleasant odor.
Ants may travel as far as 100 yards in search of food. Ants feed on anything humans or domestic animals eat. The exterior walls of an unprotected property make a great location for any ant species to make a nest. This makes an unprotected property a target area. Moisture is the best friend of any ants. Moist wood is especially susceptible to ants selecting areas to establish a nest or colony. Therefore, eliminating moisture from the home is an important way to keep these insects from setting up nests indoors and causing damage to your home.
Don’t wait until you discover serious problems or a family member becomes ill. Have your home evaluated and if necessary treated. Pest control is the best way to protect your home investment from damage and your family from disease.
Pest Control Tips
- Make sure food is properly sealed and stored. Do not leave out food scraps or pet food and water overnight.
