In Winter Haven, the climate during much of the year is quite pleasant, so we are at higher risk for experiencing termite damage.
Termites are insects that can destroy wood very quickly, making them dangerous to have on your property. Since so many structures are constructed with wood frames, having a colony of termites feasting on that wood could put your home or office building at risk for poor structural integrity. The main types of termites include dampwood, subterranean, drywood, and Formosan. You can find all four types of termites throughout much of the United States, but they are typically present most often in areas with warm climates. In Winter Haven, Florida, the climate during much of the year is quite pleasant, so we are at higher risk for experiencing termite damage than many other areas.
Termites don’t just feed on wood, so if your building’s structure is made of steel or another type of metal, this doesn’t necessarily mean you’re off the hook. Termite damage can also extend to building materials, such as plaster and siding, along with cabinetry, ceilings, floors, and much more. The presence of termites should always be cause for concern, but unfortunately, they’re not always easy to see.
At Waters Pest Control, we offer termite pest control services, so we can assess your property to determine what needs to be done to eliminate the termites completely. We offer several treatment options, including repellants, which are used in the soil to create a barrier outside your home, and non-repellant treatments, which exterminate the termites that are already living on your property.
