Types of Wood Termites in Mckinney, TX

Termites come in three kinds:

 

  • Dry Wood
  • Subterranean
  • Formosan

 

The subterranean species are the most prominent among the 3 main types of wood-eating bugs in Mckinney, TX. 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. These subterranean termites are the culprits behind 95% of structural damages in homes made from wood because Cellulose taken from their ingestion and destruction of wood gives them their needed nutrients to survive and multiply. The subterranean is the most frequently reported for extermination.

 

Tell-tale Signs of Infestation

 

You’ve noticed a few signs that may indicate whether or not you have an infestation. Sometimes, a lot of damage has already been created by these pesky bugs before you can even realize it.

  • Hollow sounding wood
  • Water damage-like appearance
  • Blown up portions in ceilings and walls
  • Mud tunnels: flat and muddy looking, about the width of a pencil
  • Tunnels made from mud on floors and walls
  • Swollen floors and ceilings

 

If you see any or all of these signs, you need termite control in Mckinney, TX. To further understand your predicament, it is best to be informed on the causes of the infestation and possible ways on how to treat wood pest infestation.

Faulty Workmanship

 

Poor construction habits and practices of home builders and renovators are the leading cause of pest problems in houses in Mckinney, TX. Even errors which you think are minor or insignificant are all it takes for these termites to eat their way inside your home.

 

The following are some faulty workmanship that leads to gradual or easy infestation of these annoying bugs:

 

  • Drainage Issues:  Drainage issues, such as insufficiently extended eaves or downspouts that are too short to accommodate the water from the foundation of your home, are problems that can lead to infestation. When the moisture created, infestation begins. Moisture is where these bugs love to thrive on. If there are faults in the grading of your landscape, the drainage can be insufficient, thus, increasing the possibility of infestation.
  • 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 termites 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.
  • 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.

 

To summarize, in order to ensure your house in Mckinney, TX is defended against wood pest deterioration, wood should be terminated properly so that it does not come into contact with soil, drainage installation should be sound, and wooden structures should be moisture-free all the time. One is to prevent wood to get in contact with the soil as much as possible and two, have a good drainage system so the soil is left dry.
