Termites are a huge problem for any homeowner. Here is how they can ruin your home and how to prevent that from happening.
The Problem with Termites
Termites basically do one thing and do it very well. They eat wood. Lots of it. A colony of termites, roughly 60,000 can eat through one foot of a 2×4 in about six months. Certain species of termites that can eat that amount much faster. Termites will thrive in a home that is damp and has a lot of moisture. They tend to breed in woodpiles or stumps near a home and can then enter a home through cracks in a foundation. Once inside, they will not only eat through wood, but they will attempt to grow more colonies. In a home where termite infestation has gone unnoticed for a length of time, the damage can be devastating. The termites can eat through sections of the home that have an impact on the stability of the home.
