Pacific Coast Termite Control Shares 3 Signs of Los Angeles Home Termite Infestations
Signs and Symptoms of Termites Can Give Clues to Infestations
Los Angeles, CA -- Termites are responsible for billions of dollars’ worth of structural damage every year. Fortunately, early detection and treatment can avoid irreparable damage. Termite control Los Angeles company, Pacific Coast Termite, points out three signs that signal a home infestation.
Preventing a home from becoming a snack for these pesky insects requires professional help from a termite control company at the first sign of an infestation, especially when a homeowner discovers any of the following three termite California symptoms plaguing their home:
Mud Tubes--Subterranean termites build mud tubes to provide moisture while they search for food and water. Mud tubes hanging from any interior or exterior walls should be looked at by a termite control professional right away. To prevent a termite infestation, or to keep termites from coming back after they have been eliminated, store mulch, firewood, and wood chips away from the home to avoid creating moisture-rich habitats for them to thrive.
Frass and Discarded Wings--Drywood termites produce wood-colored droppings as they eat their way through wood. These droppings, called frass, may resemble a pile of wood shavings or small wood chips. Homeowners should also be on the lookout for discarded wings. Both of these visual signs indicate that termites are already in the home. Pacific Coast Termite suggests a termite treatment Los Angeles appointment with professionals.
Hollow-Sounding Wood--Because termites prefer to live in dark, humid environments they do not typically feed on the surface of wood. In fact, wood that is infested with termites might look and feel smooth. If wood sounds hollow, termites may be eating the wood from the inside out. If this is the case, the structural integrity of a home may already be compromised. It is time to contact a termite exterminator to assess the damage and help prevent a total collapse.
California homeowners who find any of these telltale signs of termites can contact Pacific Coast Termite to get rid of unwelcome house guests. In addition to treating current termite infestations they can also help prevent future infestations without fumigation.
