Signs To Look For
Termites leave many signs pointing to an infestation. If you notice dark spots or blistering in floorboards, it typically points to termites feeding on the underside of the wood. If you notice that any wood in your house has a hollow sound to it, and if it has an interior resembling a honeycomb, then you most likely have a termite infestation. If you notice any termite wings or any dead termites on the ground, it points to swarming- behavior that points to a large infestation. If you notice ‘mud tubes’ (bits of soil, mud, and wood scraps) lining the ground, you have a termite infestation. Droppings are another sign. Don’t hesitate to call if you suspect a termite infestation, we’ll be more than happy to determine whether or not you have termites, dealing with the pest regardless of what it is.
What To Do
If you find that you do have a termite infestation, the best thing to do is to call an extermination service as soon as you can to prevent further damage. Most extermination companies don’t continue to protect the home after the infestation is gone- something that we do. Termites feast 24/7, so the solution needs to be put in place as soon as possible.
There are a wide variety of methods that can be used to treat a termite infestation. Magic Touch Extermination and Wildlife Control uses a variety of methods, using different methods depending on the scenario. We’ll first arrive at your home for an inspection. We will determine the extent of the infestation and how difficult it will be to treat. We will then see what parts of the home are hot-spots. Based on our findings, we will then create a custom plan for you. Once the plan is decided upon, we will discuss the methods and explain how we plan to rid your home of the pests. For example, we may use bait stations to draw the termites away from your home and kill off the colony.
Keeping Your Home Safe
After we remove the termites from your home, we will do annual check-ins to make sure that there are no signs of re-infestation and ensure that the termites are, in fact, staying away from your home. If we see any signs of re-infestation we will immediately begin working to rid your home of them.
It’s best to let professionals deal with a termite infestation, as they are difficult to truly get rid of. In order to avoid re-infestation, all termites must be killed. Termites feast 24/7- they don’t stop. If you think you may have a termite infestation, it’s crucial to call a professional as soon as possible. Don’t wait- the damage will get worse.
There is only one type of termite in New York, the Subterranean Termite. This termite lives in the soil, meaning that it doesn’t live inside furniture or in the walls. This termite is identifiable by the mud tubes it creates in order to travel from their home to their feeding spot. Termites don’t use wood to build homes, it is their food source. Termites are known to swarm, and the destruction caused by a swarm can be devastating.
Termites can fit through just about any crack, so sealing off the house won’t work. Termites need to be killed in order to get rid of the infestation. Though it seems to be a daunting task, we’ll be sure to work with you the whole way through, ensuring that you understand everything that we do and why we’re doing it.
