The presence of termites in homes and businesses is often seen as an indication of poor hygiene. This is of concern for any business – especially where there is food.
Why control termites?
No pest equals the common termite for its ability to inflict costly damage to buildings and other structures.
- Termites have existed for more than 250-million years, and share a common ancestor with mantises and cockroaches. Like ants, termites also live in colonies organised according to a complex social structure
- In the wild termites are not a pest, as they assist with the decomposition of dead trees. But human development has limited termites access to dead trees, while supplying them with a new source of food: the wood used in and around countless buildings.
- Termite activity can be spotted by hollow sounding wood, crumbling wood and aboveground mud tubes that termites use to avoid detection and exposure

How to prevent termites
The most important thing you can do to your property is to reduce soil-to-wood contact, including removing scraps of paper, mulch or wood near the base of your home, trim plants to keep them a few feet away from your home, fix leaky faucets and ensure you have proper soil drainage as termites like moisture.
