What Is Termite Awareness Week?
Termite Awareness Week is an annual observance by the National Pest Management Association to educate homeowners about these destructive pests. Did you know that termites cause $5 billion in property damage every year?! Termites may be tiny, but they live in colonies that number in the hundreds and even thousands. All day long these colonies munch on wood. This can lead to unsightly damage and, in some cases, structural instability.
During Termite Awareness Week we challenge you to begin regularly inspecting your home for signs of a termite infestation and learn how to prevent termites. Termite colonies often begin swarming and finding new nest sites in the spring — so now is the time to do something about it!
