Subterranean termites have the potential to cause significant damage to wooden structures by constructing tunnels in the soil beneath your property. These insects have a hearty appetite and can create tunnels extending from the soil to the wood in contact with it, providing them access to your home.
They can also construct mud tubes to enter wooden structures in your home through cracks or crevices in the foundation or concrete foundations. If these pests establish colonies on your property, they can gnaw through the wood to create additional tunnels, ultimately compromising the structural stability of your building.
To prevent and treat subterranean termite infestations, it’s essential to seek professional services from a licensed pest control company that can provide effective treatments and recommend preventative measures to protect your property.
