TERMITES IN UTAH
Termites are common in more than three places in the region, namely St George, Salt Lake City, Moab, and Logan. Normally, termites may look tiny and completely harmful on the surface, but do not be deceived. These pests are not only destructive, but also highly structured and organized in their colonies. For instance, one colony made up of a 20-feet high nest is capable of holding more than a million insects. If you ever see one of these tiny little pests matching into your kitchen or even your backyard, then call a highly trained pest controller who knows how to handle the pests in a professional manner.
Termites in Utah tend to be classified differently depending on where they are found. For example, arid-land termite, eastern subterranean, and western dry wood termites are some of the main termite species found in this part of northern American. Popular areas in the home where these tiny little creatures can be seen include kitchens, backyards, and pools of stagnant water seating somewhere in your compound. If you live in an area where termite activity is widespread, then it’s advisable to maintain an effective termite control program to minimize the damages these bugs can cause to your house.
According to a recently concluded research carried out by the College of Agriculture at the University of Kentucky, termites can cause billions of dollars a year in damages, if allowed to hide in floor coverings, behind walls and other obstructions that are quite common in a home environment. Learning that one single colony of termites can have more 500,000 individual insects; it is quite easy to see why these pests can eat up more wood within a short period of time.
Although the presence of termites in your home is not something you can tell immediately, there are a few tell-tale signs that can confirm that your home is about to be infected by these annoying little bugs. Once these signs have been confirmed, you should act immediately and take the necessary preventive measures to ensure they are completely removed from your premise. For example, to identify if a flying termite or commonly known as a “swarmer” is in your home, seeing a few “swarmers” in your home kitchen could indicate there is a large colony lying somewhere nearby. If you see some mud tubes forming at the corner of your ceiling, then that is a good indication you are about to be encountered by subterranean termites.
