Where did they come from?

Where did they come from?

A significant terminate colony was recently found in Canada after a decade of being termite free.  While hard to miss, sometimes termites are taken for discolored ants. The amount of damage caused by a single termite colony is insane. Termites are capable of eating through almost a pound of wood every day.

Termites haven’t been a problem in Canada in over 10 years and the only clue as to where they may have come from is the possibility of imported wood. Thankfully this batch of termites haven’t spread as of yet. It is a viable concern though. Each of the neighboring homes should be inspected for termites by a professional pest control company in their area as termites can repopulate quicker than you can locate them all. While treating the home will help with the problem today, it could take years to eradicate a termite infestation and thousands of dollars to fix the damage they cause.

It is important to know the signs of termites and to listen to those signs when you see them. Tubes and wood particles sometimes left behind wings and a huge mess is just the beginning of a termite infestation.
