In North Georgia, spring is when most pests emerge from their homes and make themselves known to you inside of an around yours. This is because pests use the spring time to mate, find food, and improve their shelter. Like many other pests, termites participate in these rituals.
It is important that property owners are careful in their selection of a termite treatment company.
Being the most common wood-destroying insect in the southeastern United States, subterranean termites cost property owners tens of millions of dollars each year to repair and treat infested structures in Georgia alone. Remaining undetected for long periods of time, termites can do serious damage to a structure without being discovered. In fact, a termite swarm (the sudden appearance of hundreds of winged insects inside your home) is typically the first visible indication to a property owner that they may have an issue with the prolific pests. Other indications of a termite infestation include termite infested wood and the appearance of termite shelter tubes within buildings or structural elements.
