Termites are a species of insect that can cause significant damage to your Pittsburgh home. Termites are attracted to your home because they are looking for a food source; they break down the cellulose in wood, leaves, soil and other debris. They especially like any wood that is moist or has had water damage. Termites live in very large colonies and once a colony has been established in or around your home, termite damage can be extensive and cost thousands of dollars to fix.
Determining that you do have a termite problem can be difficult; even though their colonies can have thousands to millions of termites in them, they avoid the sun and are rarely seen. There are several common signs of a termite infestation:
Mud tunnels in the ground that lead to your home.
Damage to wooden structure in your home (the surface of the wood may look weakened, splintered or blistered).
Walls that sound hollow when tapped (termites work from the inside out).
Reproductive members of a termite colony discard their wings so you may see piles of wings outside windows or doors during the spring.
If you notice any of these signs you should immediately call a trusted Pittsburgh termite control specialist like Rose Pest Solutions!
