What Termite Pest Control Means For Your Home

At Yarbrough Termite & Pest Control, we’re here for residents of Hartsville, Bishopville, and Florence, South Carolina when problems with termite infestations arise. However, we’re also here to provide year-round termite pest control that prevents these issues from ever spiraling out of control. If you recently purchased a home in this area or if you’re new to this type of ongoing property maintenance, read on to find out termite exterminators can help you sidestep property damage entirely.

As a homeowner, you should have a residential termite inspection performed. This gives us the opportunity to check for both above-ground and subterranean termite species that may be setting up colonies on or around your property. Catching developing colonies early-on and before natural swarming season arrives will prevent rapid breeding and the development of multiple colony groups and multiple areas of property damage.

Much like mosquitoes and ants, termites thrive within the natural environment. They don’t actually need your home or the wood cellulose that it supplies to subsist. More importantly, this means that you cannot eliminate termites entirely. With these bugs, there is no simple, set-it-and-forget-it solution that can be implemented just one time. This is one of many reasons why it is so harmful for homeowners to wait to seek treatment until infestations have already arrived.

Control measures keep these bugs from congregating on or around your property. They include moving viable sources of water, especially standing, stagnant water such as the water that fills poorly maintained ponds and pools. It can also include the removal of dead and decaying tree stumps, and replacing cellulose-based landscaping elements like wood mulch with safer alternatives.

When the risk of infestation is high, it can also include chemical barriers and other pre-treatments that further deter these bugs from building upon around your foundations, on your siding, and in basement or walls. Taking action now will prevent the amount of effort that you have to invest later on. It will save you money and time, and protect the value, marketability, and integrity of your home.
