Causing over $5 billion in property damage in the US annually, termites are a serious pest. Unfortunately, most termite damage is done inside of walls and is not recognized until significant damage has been done. The two best indicators for termites around your home are:
1.The presence of mud tubes on walls, both interior and exterior
2.The presence of termite swarmers(termites with wings that can fly). In Mississippi, termite swarmers are most likely seen during the spring in March, April, and May. Shed wings near a window or door may also be an indicator of termites.
What should you do?
If you have a termite bond/agreement with an existing pest company, renew it annually. This is inexpensive "insurance" that guarantees the company will come back and re-treat at no cost if there is a termite infestation.
If you do not have a termite bond in place, consider contacting a pest control company that specializes in termites to request a quote for a termite barrier treatment around your home. Once the barrier treatment is completed, renew your termite bond annually to keep that guarantee of no-cost re-treatment in place.
