Preventing Structural Damage From Pests

Pests, like bugs and rodents, don't just get into your food and cause unsanitary conditions. They can actually cause expensive structural damage as well. Certain types of pests can damage your home and cost you a lot of money if they're not dealt with properly. Fortunately, the pest control experts at Tabor Services can protect your home from a variety of damaging insects and rodents, including one of the most notorious causes of home damage.

What Kind of Pests Can Cause Structural Damage?

There are a number of rodents and insects who can get into your home and cause some damage.

Why Termites Are a Huge Problem

Termites chew through wood at an astounding pace. They don't sleep and eat up to five grams of wood per day, and there could be millions of termites located in nearby colonies! They cause five billion dollars in damages each year. In many cases this ends up being more costly than the damage caused by tornadoes, fires, floods, and hurricanes put together. It's easy for them to enter a home through outside vents, basements, and crawlspaces, and they will definitely take advantage of any gap in your home's defenses. If you notice signs like wood damage and bubbling paints, or you see flying termites or their shed wings, you need to call in a professional right away.
