Could your Auburndale home be losing up to 7 pounds a year? Contact us for termite control to keep that from happening.
You have a lot invested in your Auburndale, Florida home, so the last thing you need is to have it slowly (or sometimes rather quickly) get destroyed by termites. Here at Total Pest Solutions, we have effective termite control methods for dealing with both subterranean and dry wood termites. An important part of this service is having a regular inspection and incorporating proven techniques for preventing termites from reaching and getting started on destroying your home.
There are two main species of subterranean termite that can be found in the United States: natives and Formosan. While natives are moderately aggressive and reach colony sizes up to a million, which means they can consume about 7 pounds of wood a year, a Formosan termite colony can grow to 10 to 70 million in number, and because they are extremely aggressive, they go through more than 1,000 pounds of wood each year and have no problem with other materials in your home, as well. There hasn’t been a lot of Formosan termite activity in Florida yet, but those in the pest control industry are keeping a diligent watch. They have been a big problem in Louisiana, and it is anticipated their habitat will eventually grow due to their high mobility as strong flyers.
The bottom line is that you need to be diligent as well in terms of protecting your home from any and all species of termites. By putting us on your team, we will provide termite control on an ongoing basis, so you can have peace of mind that your home isn’t becoming a few pounds lighter each year.
