Identifying Termite Types
Knowing what type of termite is attacking your business matters. Some termite colonies only cause superficial, surface-level damage. Other types of termites go deeper and destroy your structure at the core. No matter how busy your termites are at eating away at your commercial structure, Graham’s Lawn & Pest has the solutions to eradicate entire colonies quickly and efficiently. We go right to the infestation source using advanced detection technology and employ solutions that keep them from returning. The two most common types of termites you will see in the DFW Metroplex area are:
- Drywood Termites: These species do not live underground. They build their colonies within dry wood structures, where the termites eat away at all materials, including hard knots. These termites will build tunnels, create structural damage, and breed until their colony can no longer sustain itself. They can cause significant damage to doors, windows, siding, gutters, and more.
- Subterranean Termites: Subterranean termites build extensive underground networks beneath trees, shrubs, flowers, and other vegetation. Business owners must be wary of these termite colonies because they create direct access to their structures and buildings beneath the surface. When subterranean termites burrow under pavement, sidewalks, and foundations, they seek damp, decaying wood. However, they will not pass up healthy wood and the chance to do damage to your commercial property.
How Much Damage Can a Termite Do to Your Business?
Termites cause an estimated $5 billion in annual property damages and repair costs for businesses. They infect millions of businesses in the U.S. and do more damage than floods, fires, and tornadoes. If not eliminated, these insects can cause nearly irreversible destruction in less than two years. This damage includes:
- Lost Customers: Your business reputation is everything. If your customers see the state of disrepair caused by termites or believe your property to be unsafe, they will go elsewhere. That negative reputation can follow your company to social media, creating bad press for your business. This unfortunate circumstance can lead to lost revenue and real threats to your commercial success.
- Structural Damage: Repair costs for termite damage come out of your earnings. Moreover, most insurance policies do not cover structural deterioration caused by termites. Even if your insurance does cover structural damage, there are generally no protections against lost employee wages or productivity due to termite infestations.
