With winter quickly setting in, it might be the time to look at some pest treatments- namely, your termite control . These little pests can completely destroy the foundation of your home, garage, or any structure on your property, and ruin you financially while they’re at it. Termites are one of a homeowner’s worst fears- but why are they so ready for the winter, and what can you do to get rid of termites?


Termites are one of the best-known bugs in the pest control business. They’re usually half an inch to three-quarters of an inch long, and white or brown in color. They have small pincers and like to build mud-tube structures where they’ve found their ways into your home. If you see any strange mounds of dirt or woodchips around your home, that’s a good sign that termites are already on the grounds. You can also tell when they’ve gotten inside by the discolored tracks they leave across your walls or their characteristic patterns of peeling paint and pockmarked holes in your wooden furniture or drywall.

The Best Termite Treatment

Like most pests, the best treatment for termites is a preventative treatment. Fortunately, there are several things you can do when it comes to termite control. Use treated wood when building anything on your property, and keep all woodpiles and bushes away from buildings. Don’t let standing water sit outside your home, either. Termites love damaged wood, so should that standing water damage any wood in the foundation, you’re certain to have a problem on your hands soon.
