NYC Termite Treatment and Inspection
Out of all the pests and insects that can do damage to your home or business, termites, by far, are the most destructive.
Termites have a reputation for being “silent destroyers” because they chew through both wallpaper and wood. Interestingly, they devour wood from the inside out, which can cause major structural damage that often goes unseen until there is noticeable, and often extreme, consequences.
What makes matters worse is that most insurance companies do not cover termite damage, as a homeowner, it’s imperative to practice prevention.

As previously stated, termites do the most damage because they chew wood in homes and residences from the inside out. This makes it difficult for many homeowners to identify termite problems early on, resulting in extensive damages by the time the pests become apparent.

In order to control termites, you should clear away wood and other debris from the outside of the home because damp and damaged wood attracts termites. Wood, which is comprised of cellulose, is key to the termite’s diet. Termites also thrive in humid and wooded areas simply because these areas provide the insect with the perfect combination of water and cellulose that they nutritionally live off of. Therefore, it’s important to repair any and all damaged wood and/or rotten wood around the home and property.
Some quick and easy tips for termite prevention and control include:
- Store firewood and other debris more than 20 feet away from the outside of the home.
- Quickly repair or replace all wood that is rotten.
- Clear away any standing water and repair all leaky faucets that can and will contribute to moisture and wood rot.
Since termites are considered social insects, you can be sure that once you see one, more are nearby. If you have seen any of the signs listed above, be sure to contact a termite pest control company right away.
