Are termites a year-round risk?

If you think colder weather means your home is safe from termites, think again. Termites are a constant threat. Even when you’re indoors, hibernating from the cold, termites are busy eating away at your home. Here are four reasons why termite protection is important, regardless of the season.

  1. Unless you call Alaska home, then you’re at risk for termites. Take the termite risk assessment to discover the threat of termites where you live.

  2. Termites work around the clock. Instead of sleeping, termites eat 24/7. These pests are on a relentless pursuit for cellulose and they don’t care where they get it — from a dead tree or your home.

  3. Termites are discovered in more than 5 million homes on average each year in the United States. But, there’s a reason why they’re known as silent destroyers. Termites are typically out of sight, out of mind for homeowners, so chances are, you won’t see that your home has termites until the damage is significant. That’s why “an ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure” when it comes to preventative termite protection.
