Are Termites Dangerous?
Termites are dangerous, though they don’t cause any physical harm to people, and they aren’t known to transmit diseases. Rather, termites cause a lot of structural damage to homes that can be extensive and expensive to repair. In fact, these pests are responsible for causing more than $5 billion worth of damage across the country each year, damage that isn’t typically covered by homeowner’s insurance. In addition, termites are difficult pests to deal with because they enter properties unseen and can remain unnoticed for weeks, months, or even years until the damages they've caused become extensive, costly, and sometimes, even irreparable. And that's the last thing you want!
Why Do I Have A Termite Problem?
Worker termites typically leave the nest in search for food. While foraging, they may accidentally find their way into homes and other buildings through cracks and crevices in their foundations. Termites often find their way inside homes in the following ways:
Wood-to-soil contact. Termites can also utilize soil that comes into contact with door frames, deck posts, wooden shingles, and porch steps to gain access to homes. Once inside, they travel behind walls and under flooring, tunneling through and feeding on the structural wood of your home, initially preferring moist, water-damaged wood.
Termite swarms. If there is a mature termite colony living on one of your neighbor’s properties and winged termite swarmers emerge in order to mate and establish a new colony, those termite reproductives may end up on your property and eventually inside the structural wood of your home!
Termites are attracted to properties that provide them with the things they need to survive and thrive such as moist soil and decaying plant matter. Outside, termites create their nests in the ground. However, when they find their way inside, termites can be found tunneling through and feeding on wood and non-wood items such as structural supports, flooring, wooden trim, insulation, plastic plumbing pipes, sub-flooring, and foundations. Termites travel from their food source, which is oftentimes our homes, to their nest through underground tunnels or mud tubes that they create on the surfaces of walls and foundations and along the ground.
