Have you noticed mud tubes around the exterior of your home? Or maybe some damage to the wood supporting your home or even the wood products in your home? Then it is possible you have a termite infestation at hand. Termites are a social insect and each one plays an important role to help their colony survive and expand. Subterranean termites are the most common termite in North America and you can find them in every state except Alaska. Termite food consists of cellulose, which can include many things, such as: plants, lumber, cotton fibers, paper, cardboard, and even furniture. These tiny insects may appear harmless; however, when they flood your home in pursuit of their next meal the results can be devastating. Many people refer to these insects as the “silent destroyers” because of their ability to literally eat a home’s wood support system without being noticed until it’s too late. For more information about termites in Potterville, Michigan, or the surrounding areas call the Potterville pest control experts at (800) 966-7673.
Termites pose no health risks to us, but they present a major threat to the homes we live in and the buildings where we work. Annually, termites cause more than five billion dollars in property damage. These insects are never satisfied, they eat 24 hours a day/7 days a week and certain species have the ability, with their colony, to eat through a home’s structure with in a time span of only two years! A termite infestation is extremely difficult to detect without the help and expertise of a professional. If you believe you may have spotted some termite signs around your home, such as small holes in wood surfaces or sagging, squishy floors, or simply want to be sure your home is termite free, don’t hesitate to contact the professionals at Rose Pest Solutions for a termite inspection.

There are steps that can help safe-guard your Potterville home or business from these destructive pests. Typically, termites will invade your structure either in search of moisture, which is essential to their survival, or a food source. Tips to avoid these overwhelming pests include:
Trim all shrubbery and tree branches back away from the home
Remove old grade stakes, tree trunks, roots, and form boards from around your building
Installing properly functioning downspouts, gutters, and splash blocks will divert water away from your homes foundation; this diversion is crucial
Keeping a minimum of an 18 inch gap between your home and any wood or soil source
Be sure the humidity level in crawl spaces, attics, and basements is minimal with proper ventilation
Firewood should be stored at least 20 feet away from the house
Routine inspection of the premises for any signs is also key
