Oceanside Termite Control Services

Termites. The word probably evokes the same reaction as the word cockroaches. Interestingly, these two insects are actually close relatives, but differ in one aspect; termites can eat the wood and cellulose in your house due to organisms in their bodies, which can break it down and use it as food. New York Pest Control offers professional termite inspection services throughout Oceanside, Long Island. If you think you have termites, or notice signs of a termite infestation, contact our professionals today.

Subterranean termites - the most destructiveDamage caused by Termites

In nature, these termites are actually beneficial. They help forests by eating decomposing trees and returning the broken down wood to the soil, which provides nutrients to the living trees and vegetation of the forests thus continuing the natural cycle of the forests. In your house, these termites are decidedly non beneficial. Termites can become attracted to your house due to the simple facts that it's made out of wood and it's a nice warm environment. Since it's a nice warm environment, termites will become a year-long resident in your house.

There are several types of termites. One particular type of termite, the subterranean termite, is the most destructive of all the termites. Unfortunately the subterranean termite is also the most prevalent termite in Long Island.

These types of termites typically attack the areas closest to the soil. These areas include the sills, joists, and other load-bearing areas. As you can imagine, this is not good for your house. Left unchecked, termites can cause sagging walls, damaged door frames, and floors and ceilings to collapse.

Contact a professional termite inspector & exterminator

Luckily, it takes several years for a termite colony to grow to a size where it can inflict serious damage. By recognizing the signs of termites, such as discarded wings in window sills or termite droppings, you can prevent the infestation from spreading.

This is not a do-it-yourself project, however. Treating a termite infestation requires the use of a pest control company that has the expertise to treat the current infestation and to prevent a future infestation.
