Main Species of Wood Bugs

 

Termites come in three kinds:

 

  • Formosan
  • Dry Wood
  • Subterranean

 

Among the three major types, the subterranean is the most common species of these wood-eating bugs in Allen, TX. Wood is the main food of these annoying bugs because the material contains cellulose, which is the component they use for survival and reproduction. The subterranean is the most frequently reported kind of termites for extermination.

Problematic Construction Practices in Allen, TX

 

Erroneous construction practices in Allen, TX are often the culprit why there are infestation problems. A few simple mistakes during the construction of your home, can have a big impact on how easily these termites can access your Allen, TX home. Be smart to know about some issues that they find all too welcoming for comfort:

 

  • Drainage Issues:  Eaves that are not sufficiently extended and downspouts that are too short are issues that need to be looked at when you are worried about infestation in your area. These pests love moisture, and faults in the drainage system allow for moisture to seep in. Faults in the grading of your landscape can lead to insufficient drainage, and thus must also be taken into consideration.
  • Wood in Soil Contact: If you have wood buried in or even near the edge of your soil, you’ve given a solid and direct pathway for these pests to enter your home and this might lead to a need for termite control.
  • Leftover Building Materials: Remember that subterranean bugs take their nourishment from cellulose, and cellulose can be contained in backfilled construction debris, especially wood. This also goes to say that wood left in CMUs or masonry units can be infested, and so can leaving grade stakes, form boards and spacers in slabs.
  • Home Landscaping: The practice of landscaping in Allen, TX is not a direct construction matter but in areas where the intent is within the effective vicinity of the house structure, it should be monitored. Improper grading of landscaping fields may lead to water build-up and retention within gravel and sand against the foundation of the home. Uncontrolled moisture held against the structure of the house can become nesting sites of unwelcomed guests such as termites.

 

The thing is that at times you cannot prevent construction works in Allen, TX  so if they become necessary, just remember not to bury any wood in the soil, or keep it from getting in close contact with the soil.
