Termites In San Antonio
Termites are considered a year-round pest, especially in Texas. While people sometimes expect pests to disappear during the winter, the truth is Texas doesn’t reach cold enough temperatures for many bugs to die. Heat and humidity mean that pests can survive through the seasons, especially pests that spend a significant amount of time inside homes, like termites.
In Texas, if you have termites, you’re most likely dealing with subterranean termites. They live in colonies underground and find ways to get from their nest to a home without coming out into the open. They move around inside walls, eating away at the wooden structures that keep a building intact. It’s believed that termites cost Americans billions of dollars every year. Much of termite damage happens in southern states where the weather is warmer. If termites infest your home, they could cause thousands of dollars in damage.
The bad news is, you can’t usually identify a termite infestation before they’ve caused damage. These pests are very good at hiding. They have to be because coming out into the open can kill them. They spend their time deep within walls and can go unseen for a long time. During this time, they’ll cause significant damage to a home. What are the signs of termites in your home? You may see signs of damage if termites have been in your home for a long time. This may take the form of drooping ceilings, bulges in the walls, or bumps in the floor. You may also suspect termites if your windows and doors begin to stick or if you have a hard time closing them.
Help For An Infestation
If you think you have termites, call Romney Pest Control for a free inspection. Our inspection can help you determine whether or not you have termites living in your home. If you do, we’ll get right to work to install Sentricon® System with Always Active™. This baiting system works better than any do-it-yourself product or technique because it targets the entire colony. Worker termites carry the poison back to the colony, attacking all termites, not just the workers. A baiting system is also slow enough acting that termites won’t suspect the danger and split their colony or avoid the bait. Our treatment is long-lasting and we can come back to inspect again if you aren’t sure it’s working. Don’t let termites camp out in your home for long. In San Antonio, you have access to the expertise of the technicians at Romney Pest Control. Let us get rid of your termite infestation and/or prevent future infestations from occurring.
