How To Recognize and Avoid Termite Damage
Termites are seriously destructive insects. Crawling up into foundation posts or sill plates from damp soil and flying into crawl spaces or attics, these relentless insects can tunnel into and chew through wooden components of your home, most often undetected. Given the right conditions, termites can spread and leave nothing but paper-thin layers of what used to be strong pieces of wood. According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), termites do an estimated $5 billion of property damage in the U.S each year. These costs are typically not covered by home insurance policies. Early detection of termites can help mitigate damage and minimize the cost of repairs.
