How You Could Be Wrong About Termites In West Palm Beach


Termites are one of the most misunderstood insects in the world. Today, we're going to look at a few ways you could be wrong about West Palm Beach termites, and why it is important to get the facts straight about these destructive insects.

Let's start with a myth that has broader implications than you might think. When termites are uncovered, they're often described to us as white ants. Some people even think that termites are a form of ant. While termites and ants are both insects, they are very different, and they belong to different families. Why is this important to know? Because ants don't consume wood. They excavate it. Termites are wood eaters; when they get into your home, they don't create tiny wood shavings for you to see.

Myth: If You Have Wood Sources In Your Yard, Termites Will Leave Your Home Alone

Unlike ants, termites don't target one food source at a time. They're always looking for food even when a food source has been found. If you have wood or wood products sitting on the ground in your yard, they aren't going to keep termites from feeding on your home. They're going to attract termites to your yard. And, as the termites eat these wood sources, they can also be feeding on the wood of your home. In fact, it is likely that they are. We strongly recommend removing any sources of wood from your yard, elevating wood products to get them off the soil, and to never bury wood in your yard.

Myth: Termite Infestations Are Easy To Detect

You might think that you'll see wood damage, or termites crawling around on your walls when these insects invade your West Palm Beach home. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case, especially with subterranean termites. When subterranean termites attack your home, the signs they leave can be very difficult to see. This is why they're the most destructive termites in the United States. They cause more damage to man-made structures than hurricanes, tornados, and fires combined.
