Termite Control Done Right For Tampa Properties


Termite Control Done Right For Tampa Properties

Located in sunny Florida, Tampa is a city that offers excellent job opportunities, weather that invites you to play, and plenty of quiet, secluded places where you can kick back and relax. Its urban, suburban, and rural areas offer unlimited property choices that can meet your every need. One pest in the area that never rests is the local termite. Without pest control in Tampa, these 24/7 working insects may soon take small bites out of your valuable property.

You're Likely Never To See A Termite

The worst kind of enemy is the one you never hear or see. Termites in Tampa are no friend to property owners; they are the enemy. In Tampa, the subterranean termite is the most common termite species to invade area properties. They typically live underground and build mud tubes to access properties; however, they can attack properties from ground level (with ample moisture sources) and the air (affecting upper levels of homes).

Once termites access your property, they use their long, narrow bodies (1/8 inch) and natural colors (milky white to dark brown or black) to wriggle unnoticed through cracks and crevices around your building. As soon as they locate cellulose products (wood), they start efficiently and quietly feasting, leaving very few signs of their presence. With a local pest that can quietly attack your property from all directions, it's always good to have a termite specialist like Urbanex nearby.

The Extent Of Property Damage Termites Can Create

Ideal temperatures year-round, plenty of moisture, and an abundant cellulose supply make Tampa properties the perfect target for hungry subterranean termites. Since active termites quietly go about their destructive behaviors, their cellulose consumption often goes on for an extended period before property owners notice problems.

Five signs of termites inside your property include:

  1. Wood that looks blistered or dark
  2. Wood that crumbles easily or sounds hollow when tapped
  3. Floors that appear to sag
  4. Paint or wallpaper that bubbles or looks sunken-in
  5. Piles of "sawdust" (termite feces) underneath areas with wood

Termites might be tiny, but even a small colony (about 60,000) can eat 1/5 ounce of wood daily. That equates to a 2x4 every year! If termites eat unabated, damages can get costly. A termite's size is small, but its appetite is enormous; therefore, property owners must call in the pest professionals at Urbanex anytime they suspect a termite infestation.

Why DIY Termite Control Can Do More Harm Than Good

In this information age, it's easy to locate DIY instructions and products that claim to eliminate termites for a small cost. In reality, most DIY products are less effective than professional termite treatments and typically only treat the termites you see. While you relax (thinking your DIY treatment worked), termites unaffected by your DIY products will spread to other areas of your property and resume their activities. In addition, most DIY termite control measures don’t address the factors that attract termites to your property in the first place. If termite treatments don’t resolve the reasons termites visited your property, they will return.

Trusting DIY treatments for termite removal may end up causing more harm than good when termites (unbeknownst to property owners) regroup and continue to damage your property. When treating a pest that is hard to find and eliminate, it is always best to use a pest professional like Urbanex. We've got the expertise, tools, and appropriate products to ensure termites are gone for good.
