There are many different pests that are no stranger to Arizona residents, but one of the most familiar is the termite. Not only can termites be very hard to remove from your property, but they also can cause permanent damage to your home’s structure and foundation.
Termites and Where They Come From
How do termites get inside in the first place? They can come in through cracks of your home’s foundation or floor. They can also create tunnels to your home’s foundation and get in through your drywall. It is very importantly to not take these small pests lightly, as nobody should welcome them in the home.
The most obvious thing to know about termites is that they love eating wood. When they eat wood, they will tend to leave behind holes as thin as a needle. If you can’t see any holes or damage on wood, then you could definitely feel a difference by tapping on it. Wood that becomes hollow means that the wood’s structural support has decrease to a degree.
