Main Species of Wood Bugs

 

Before anything else, you will want to know that wood-eating bugs are generally of three kinds:

 

  • Subterranean
  • Dry Wood
  • Formosan

 

The subterranean kind is the most common of the three, and one that you will often found in Frisco, TX. The reason for so much damage in Frisco, TX is because these subterranean munchers get their nutrition from cellulose, and you guessed it: wood and wood products contain cellulose. Not surprising, most requests for termite control involve the subterranean bug. They feast on cellulose which can be found in wood and wood products, so it’s not surprising to know that 95% of damages in homes and office buildings annually are attributed to this kind of species.

Faulty Workmanship

 

Erroneous construction practices in Frisco, TX are often the culprit why there are infestation problems. Even minor glitches in the manner of construction can provide the gateway for the wood eaters to creep in your home without anyone noticing it.

 

Some of the constructions faults that cause infestations and must be given full attention are the following:

 

  • Drainage Issues: The grading of your Frisco, TX landscape can be faulty, leading to insufficient drainage of water away from your home. You may also have eaves that are insufficiently extended, or downspouts that are not long enough to carry run-off away from your home’s foundation. All of these elements lead to moisture along your foundation--an ideal home for these termites.
  • Contact between Earth and Wood: Wooden structural elements should have the proper treatment and covers when it must meet earth or soil foundations, otherwise neglect will lead to a freeway of bugs from outside to your house and an infestation develops.
  • Leftover Building Materials: Building or construction materials, especially wood, that are backfilled can serve as source of cellulose, which subterranean bugs feed on. Leaving grade stakes, form boards and spacers in slabs aren’t a good idea, either, if you are worried about bugs infecting your area. Wood that is being left over inside CMUs or masonry units can also serve as breeding grounds for them.
  • Unguided Landscaping: Attention should be given to the landscaping effort around the house. The wrong grading of landscaping that involves gravel lets moisture accumulate and set around the house, as well as its base. Moist wood is clearly an attractive site for termite dwelling.

 

If you cannot avoid construction works or landscaping jobs in Frisco, TX, there are a couple of things you can do to reduce the possibility infestation.

Make sure you have a good drainage system that actually works.
