What is your favorite thing to do after a fun day out in the brisk air of fall? Are you one to cozy up next to the fire, wrapped in your fleece blanket, reading your favorite book? Or are you more of a hot chocolate and TV kind of homeowner. Either way, one thing is certain, a day out in the cold should always be ended in warmth. Termites feel the same way.
The weather in September can be unpredictable in Pennsylvania, but at the very least, we can expect a slight drop in the temperature and in humidity levels. This change in weather will cause the termite activity to fall off a little, but termites will continue to be a problem, especially if an unseasonably warm spell occurs.
Termite Awareness Week is an essential week in the pest control industry that is dedicated to helping people become more aware of the signs and damages that termites can cause. It can also be helpful in finding a way to get help for prevention, elimination, or both.
Termites, though small, are quite mighty in their abilities. With termite colonies usually numbering between 60,000 and 1 million, they can cause a lot of damage to a home and put you and your family in real danger. Causing an estimated $5 billion a year in damage, the damage caused by termites often goes uncovered by insurance policies and leaves homeowners with a substantial loss.
