Get rid of termites

Termite Damage to Wood - Termite ControlThink Service specialise in termite control offering leading services right across the UK. Termites are detritivores and are most known for the severe damage they can cause to wood structures in homes and wooden furniture. Termites look like little white ants, and a termites mouth is capable of chewing through a remarkable amount of wood given its tiny size of a few millimeters. A good indication of a termite infestation is a mud tube either inside or outside of a wall, as well as damage to other areas of your property such as metal wires.

A decedent of cockroaches, termites have been around for over one hundred million years and feed off cellulose in wood. Many termites are blind (usually the worker termite) and dependent on the type will nest in different habitats.

Risks Associated with Termites

Termites are not a human health risk, but more so a household structural risk. Although they can bite, they will only bite a human if handled, and still this is rare. However, the damage that can be caused to your home is dramatic due to their ability to consume remarkable amounts of wood. With colonies of millions, an infestation of termites can have drastic effects, and immediate professional help should be sought as quickly as possible.
