According to the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, termites and carpenter ants cause billions of dollars’ worth of damage every year in the United States. Most American homes are wood-framed, and those that are not contain objects made of wood. Although termites prefer areas with temperatures above 50 degrees, our indoor heating keeps them happily eating our South Shore, Massachusetts homes and makes termite control very important for the health of your home or business.
Like carpenter ants, termites are helpful in nature, but can wreak havoc in your home. Termites eat dead plants and wood. They will eat dead parts of living trees and deadwood on the ground and in the soil. The wood in your home looks like a long-term potential food source. The damage termites leave in their wake as they eat can quickly cause serious problems in a building.
While termites can cause serious harm to your home or business, you, your loved ones and customers are safe. Termites do not bite people or sting.
Because termites eat the wood of your home, they do not leave sawdust-like debris like carpenter ants, which tunnel in the wood of your home to build their home.
