Why Termites In Austin Are A Problem For Property Owners

The climate in Austin is perfect for all organisms, so it isn't surprising that termites thrive here. While we have several species, there are primarily two kinds of termites. They are subterranean termites and drywood termites. Subterranean termites prefer softer wood and come up from the ground to enter homes. Drywood termites prefer hard wood and enter homes by getting in through tiny cracks and gaps in the exterior. When they enter a man-made structure, they can do quite a bit of damage over time. Termites are a multi-billion-dollar problem in the United States, with property owners in the southern states paying the most for termite damage.

Termite Damage Often Catches Austin Residents By Surprise

Another reason termites in Austin are a problem is that they're sneaky. When termites start munching on your equity, you will not know it. They'll quietly take one nibble at a time, grow their colonies, and increase the amount of damage they can do. All of this happens right under your nose — and under your feet. Here are a few ways they manage this:

  • Termite workers avoid light. They don't even like to come out of their tunnels into the moonlight.
  • The damage caused by termites is mostly inside wooden timbers. They'll make extensive galleries in the wood over time and compromise support beams.
  • The warning signs of a termite infestation are often subtle. You may have a little wiggly mud line on your foundation, a few swarmer wings under your back deck, or you may catch a few worker termites under a dead branch.

When you get a professional inspection or a treatment to prevent termite damage, these insects can't surprise you with extensive damage. Contact Aries Pest Control to learn more about our pest control services in Austin, TX.
