Termites feasting on wood. Pest Control Inc in Las Vegas NV talks about reasons why you have termites.

Termites are destructive. In fact, they cause more damage to homes than hurricanes, wind, and fire combined every year in the U.S. These tiny pests feed on cellulose so they are very fond of wood, primarily moist and rotting wood. Moreover, termites never stop eating.

Once termites invade your home, they can go unnoticed for years, causing thousands of dollars in damage and impacting the structural integrity of your home.

Knowing what causes termite infestations may help you avoid them.

 

Causes of Termite Infestation

Moisture

Excess moisture is one of the leading causes of a termite infestation. Subterranean termites and dampwood termites in particular are attracted to moist and humid environments. Termites love leaky pipes, dirty gutters, and areas with poor airflow such as basements.

Wood

Termites feed on wood of any kind because it contains cellulose. Some termite species like subterranean termites, must move through soil or wood to invade your home. This is why it’s important to treat or remove any wood that comes into contact with your home including mulch, decks, eaves, tree branches, and shrubs. If you have exposed stumps on your property, you’ll want to remove those too.

Foundation Cracks & Openings

As termites seek for food and moisture, they’ll take advantage of any vulnerable areas in your home, including foundation cracks, siding cracks, and window sill cracks. Sealing these areas and repairing damaged shingles and fascia boards will help defend your home against termites.
