TERMITE PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN EXPENSIVE CURE
Termites are the among the most damaging structural pests in Pakistan. Commonly known as white ants, they devour large amounts of wood and all other materials that contain cellulose. Although some structures are more prone to termite attacks, every house is susceptible to a potential termite infestation. While many house owners worry about fire or flooding, termite damage is a much more common problem.
Even if your home is build mainly of brick or stone, there is a risk of termite attacks on structural support and other building elements that are constructed of wood or other cellulose containing materials.
Termites are very secretive insects. Hence, it comes as no surprise that termite activities are usually recognized very late, when a lot of damage has already been done. Termite damage weakens wooden structures, and repairs can be a costly affair. In Pakistan the most commonly encountered pest termites are subterranean termites
1) Dampwood Termites:
Dampwood termites like to live and feed in very moist wood. because they need lots of moisture, Dampwood Termites usually live in damp, dying wood or in houses with leaking plumbing that keeps the wood wet.Dampwood termites do not carry disease and don?t usually bother buildings because there is not enough water in the wood.
To avoid Dampwood termites, make sure water drains away from your house and keep damp wood away from your home.
2) Drywood Termite
Drywood termites form colonies of up to 2,500 members. Drywood Termite colonies don?t have workers. Younger termites, called “false workers”, do all the work for the colony.
3) Formosan Termites
Formosan termite colonies can be up to 300 feet long and there can be tens of thousands of termites in a single colony. Formosan termite colonies are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers and reproductives. They are the largest and most destructive kind of termite.
4) Subterranean Termites
Subterranean Termite colonies can have up to 2 million members! Their colonies are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers and reproductives.
Shelter Tubes –
Termites are very sensitive to changes in humidity. That is why they build mud tubes to protect themselves from sunlight, predators and to maintain convenient humidity levels. These tubes are a good sign of an ongoing termite infestation.
