Green Pest Solutions Warning: Beware Of Termites This Spring
Industry: Home & Residential
Green Pest Solutions encourages public awareness of termites during the spring season
West Chester, PA (PRUnderground) April 21st, 2015
As temperatures continue to increase in the PA, NJ, DE tri-state area and the ground becomes warmer, winged termites will emerge in search of a suitable spot to create a new colony, often in residential settings. To promote public vigilance against termites, Green Pest Solutions is educating homeowners about the threat of termites and the possible signs of an infestation this spring. They are also offering free termite inspections and a $100 discount for anyone who needs termite control service.
Termites feed 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the cellulose found in wood and paper products. They are known as “silent destroyers” due to their ability to compromise the structure of a home without being noticed until it’s too late.
“Termites are very destructive and the damage inflicted can be quite costly if left undetected,” said Adam Granito, General manager at Green Pest Solutions. “subterranean termites are most likely to cause problems in the greater Philadelphia area this time of year, so it’s important for homeowners to be on the lookout for signs of these wood-destroying pests in and around their property.”
Here are a few clues that termites may be present in a home:
1. Mud tubes (used by termites to reach a food source) on the exterior of the home
2. Soft wood in the home that sounds hollow when tapped
3. Darkening or blistering of wood structures
4. Cracked or bubbling paint
5. Small piles of feces that resembles sawdust near a termite nest
6. Discarded wings near doors or on windowsills, indicating swarmers have entered the home
“If homeowners notice any of these signs, they should contact a pest professional who can best determine the extent of the problem and recommend a proper treatment plan,” added Adam Granito.
