How to Cope with Termites in Your Home
Posted By: Daniel Mackie
Category: Pest Control

One of the most destructive pests that can invade your Vaughan or Toronto home is a termite infestation. Unlike other pests which can be annoying, or that merely feed on your crumbs or sometimes on you, termites live in colonies that subsist on the wood structures and wood-derived structures of your home. When they get into the foundation and walls of your house, they can cause extensive damage and cost you thousands of dollars.

 

One of the first signs that your home may be infested with termites is catching sight of termites with wings. These little pests provide the air force for the colony and scout out the territory, so you are more likely to see one of these than the termites that are under the floorboards. If you do not see one of these, you may discover a wing that has fallen off of one of these creatures, which occurs during the mating process.

 

Another thing to look for is a bit more difficult to detect. Greenleaf Pest Control in Vaughan can inspect your home by looking for foraging tubes consisting of dried mud that may appear along the foundation walls of your house, as well as other signs of termites. If enough evidence is available, Greenleaf Pest Control in Vaughan can find the termite colonies themselves and help you to proceed to take steps in extermination. There are a variety of solutions available depending on the extent of the infestation; but effective pest control in Vaughan can keep your home safe for at least five years.
