Kelowna Termite Extermination
The beauty of Kelowna’s forests and landscapes is well known throughout the world. Tourists love Kelowna’s foliage and plant life but no one loves them more than termites. These pests are divided into several types, but they do consistently live in large numbers. Large populations are why our Toodaloo technicians are necessary to carry out your Kelowna termite extermination.
The Termite Work Ethic
Although they are not always visible, termites are always working, eating and expanding their colonies. Within the Kelowna area, subterranean termites are the most likely to enter homes. These termites thrive on moisture and the city sees an average of 15 inches of precipitation per year.
Termites generally look for their food sources in different, even obscure places when compared to other household pests. That is, in part, due to termites living off different food groups then those of their counterparts. The most common diet for termites in Canada is cellulose. That is unfortunate for us as nearly every home or business contains cellulose-based products. Books, furniture, drywall and of course wood, are all meals for termites.
Handling Your Kelowna Termite Extermination
It would take years for a large colony of termites to take down the structure of a house but calling in professional pest removal services stops these termites in their tracks. Many termites begin their colonies outside in rotten or fallen logs or stumps, making their way into human dwellings only when the colony becomes too late to support itself and must expand.
Toodaloo pest and wildlife can help you prevent the spread of termite colonies, whether they begin inside or outdoors. A large part of combating infestation is, of course, identification and identifying which type of termite is chewing its way into your home.
