Western Subterranean Termites and Pacific Dampwood Termites are the inhabitants of Vancouver. These termites are very important to us as they break down large quantities of dead and fallen trees that accumulate in the forests.
Unfortunately, they also attack wooden structures, and if left uncontrolled, they will cause the weakening and collapse of structures due to their feeding activity. Other wood products can also be attacked under the right conditions.
The presence of termites in buildings is cause for concern not only from the standpoint of safety but also the cost of preventing further structural damage and replacing damaged wood.
Do you have termites?
Have you noticed wings on your windowsills or doors? If the answer is yes, then you probably have an infestation and require the services of termite pest control. Take a look at the wood in your home. Termites like softwood and eat along the grain, giving the wood a distinctive honeycomb shape.
If you suspect you have a termite infestation in your home, get your home inspected by a pest professional.
