TermitesUh oh. First, it was a swarm of winged insects flying around your yard. That was only temporary, but then it was a bit of chipped paint. Then you tapped on the wood and it sounded hollow. You’ve got termites, and your home is an all-you-can-eat buffet for these hungry (and uninvited) guests. Don’t worry: Rid-a-Bug Exterminating is here to put an end to the pest party.

How Serious Is a Termite Infestation

Termites establish colonies in yards and travel over to homes’ foundations. Gaps and cracks around wires and pipes allow them to come on in. You can also attract these pets if you have wooden decks or porches that are in direct contact with the ground, stacks of firewood against the house, damp soil near the foundation, or shrubbery and trees planted very close to the structure.

There’s a reason they call termites the “silent destroyer.” While you may not notice immediate signs of an infestation, they are busy eating cellulose-based plant materials in your home. They’ll also eat plastic, paper, and drywall. No matter what your home is constructed of, they’ll find something to munch on.
