Termite Inspection and Treatment Options
Subterranean termites thrive in North Texas thanks to our warm, wet springs and mild winters. Termites feed on dead trees and plants. They are often described by clients as flying ants. Residents building new homes in the Addison area should contact us about termite proofing. It is far less expensive to protect your home than it is to repair the damage termites cause. Even if you suspect termites in a nearby tree, it is wise to call Addison Pest Control. Termites will migrate to nearby structures if they find them inviting. Hollow trees and wood are a good indication of termites. These creatures often destroy wood from the inside out. They find a crack or distorted area within wood and begin their destructive feast. Homeowners looking to prevent infestation should keep shrubbery, firewood and mulch at least two feet from the home’s foundation. Termites can also enter through vents and cracks in roof siding or windows. Signs of termite infestation include the presence of mud tubes along exterior walls. Subterranean termites use these mud tubes to stay dehydrated while they feast. You may also see a group of discarded wings in a window sill. A termite infestation can cause severe structural damage over time. A licensed pest management company, like Addison Pest Control, can inspect your home and create a treatment plan to protect your investment.
Addison’s Small-Town Appeal Invites Wildlife
Addison is a few miles away from the hustle and bustle of Dallas. Lush, green lawns, beautiful native plants and plenty of treed lots attract new home buyers to our beautiful community. These same factors attract wildlife. Wild animals in the area, including opossums, raccoons, squirrels, snakes, skunks and pigeons, can invade attics, breed under houses, and leave unpleasant and sometimes dangerous droppings on your property. Inquisitive animals, like squirrels, are difficult to deter, but homeowners should keep trees and branches trimmed back at least 6 to 8 feet away from the home. Another preventive tactic is to wrap sheet metal around trunks of trees. It’s also wise to do a yearly inspection of your attic to make certain there are no entry points for squirrels and other wildlife to enter. If you find a hole and have heard wildlife in the attic recently, do not cover the hole until you have called a professional to remove the animal. Unintentionally trapping an animal in your home is the worst case scenario. They will either do severe damage in an effort to escape or move into the living quarters of the house.
