Termites are social pests, opting to live in colonies instead of alone. This is why termite extermination is important to do early on. As time goes one, termites breed, enlarging their population and making removal more and more difficult. Our Toodaloo technicians strike while the iron is hot, helping you keep your home pest free.
There are several types of termites, varying from region to region. It is important to identify which one of these you are dealing with. Termites can live in multiple environments, some opting to live underground while others prefer rotting wood outdoors or the sound wood inside your home. Our Toodaloo Technicians will help you distinguish your pest and find the most suitable way to treat the problem.
Over time, termites can do significant damage to your home or property. If these pests are allowed to stay in your home unnoticed, they can eat away at the sound structural wood in your home. Termites are small but can consume several pound of wood a year when in a group. Termites in Canada have even been known to switch to other cellulose-based products such as furniture, drywall, books and other wood.
In addition to damage to your home, living with these pests can pose other hazards to homeowners.
Termite infestation can happen right under your nose, sometimes going unnoticed for long periods of time. They are small and usually stick to the interior of walls so they have access to wooden structures.
When you suspect termite activity, there are a few tell-tale signs that you can look for: discarded wings (from some species), Frass (termite droppings), sawdust or on a lesser scale, hollow-sounding wood or cracked and bubbling paint.
