About

Guarding our Texas homes against wood-eating termites is made more difficult because we need to worry about three different species of termites in our area. The subterranean termite, the drywood termite, and the Formosan termite. Each has unique feeding, breeding, and nesting habits, but all will find their way into our homes, where they will cause costly damage by feeding on structural wood or other wooden items located inside.

Termites are dangerous pests, not because they pose a direct threat to us, but because of the damage that they can cause to our homes. Termites are often described as "silent invaders" because they move into our homes without us noticing them and can work for months or sometimes even years before their damage becomes apparent. Many times discovering their damage is the only reason we find out there's an infestation. Adding insult to injury is that most homeowners' insurance doesn't cover the cost of termite repair. With termites responsible for more than five billion dollars in damages each year, they are not pests you want to gamble with!

To make your property as unattractive to termites as possible, we want to provide you with the following prevention tips:

  • Use dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture from your home.
  • Make sure crawl spaces, bathrooms, and kitchens are well ventilated.
  • Regularly inspect your home for leaky pipes, faucets, or fixtures and repairing them as quickly as possible.
  • Remove wood from your home damaged by water.
  • Help prevent rainwater from seeping into your house by ensuring weatherstripping is intact, repairing roof damage, and sealing holes or cracks in exterior walls.
  • Inspect wood or wooden structures you bring into your home for signs of termites.
  • Protect your Humble home from termites¬†with our effective treatment services.
