Without a doubt, termites are one of the worst pest infestations you could have in your home or business. Throughout the United States, termites infest more than 5 million homes each year and cause nearly 5 billion dollars in damages! These silent destroyers can be present for years without revealing themselves, quietly eating away at a structure.
To prevent a termite infestation, it’s crucial to work with a professional pest control company such as Pest Defense Solutions. We provide regular inspections and highly effective termite treatments that will keep you termite-free, guaranteed.
How Dangerous are Termites?
Although termites can cause significant damage to structures, they do not pose a serious direct threat to humans and do not bite. It is rare for termites to come into contact with people whatsoever. Thankfully, they do not carry or transmit viruses as other pests do. However, there have been reports of people suffering from asthma attacks inside infested structures due to the irritating particles and dust created by their wood-boring destruction.
