Wood destroying insects can cause significant damage to homes if left untreated. Some of the most common wood destroying insects that can invade and damage homes include powderpost beetles, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and termites.
- Powderpost beetles are a type of wood-boring beetle that often infest hardwoods, such as oak and ash. These small pests leave behind tiny holes in the wood surface, usually filled with a fine powdery dust from their eggs and larvae. To stop the damage from these beetles, homeowners should immediately contact a professional pest control company for treatment.
- Carpenter ants also cause significant damage to wood structures when they build nests inside walls or furniture. These large black ants can weaken structural integrity by creating galleries and tunnels in wood pieces throughout a home. A skilled pest control technician can help rid your home of these pests with proper insecticides to stop further damage.
- Carpenter bees are another destructive species of insect that homeowners should keep an eye out for. These bees bore into wooden surfaces such as siding, eaves, or decks to create nest chambers for their young. If left unchecked, these bees can cause extensive damage to your property with their drilling activities. Our team at Universal Pest Control can help you quickly get rid of these troublesome bees before they cause serious harm to your structure.
- Termites are one of the most damaging types of wood-destroying insects due to their ability to eat away at wooden structures quickly and silently. Though often unseen until it’s too late, homeowners should be aware of signs such as mud tubes on exterior walls or hollowed-out wood pieces inside their homes that could indicate a termite infestation has taken hold.
To prevent the destruction caused by these wood destroying pests, Universal Pest Control provides comprehensive inspection and extermination services designed specifically for these insects to ensure complete elimination from your property in Union County.
One of the reasons wood destroying pests are so destructive is that they work undercover and in silence. They can go undetected for long periods of time, slowly chipping away at the structure of your home without you ever knowing. Eventually, though, they will leave evidence that something is amiss and it's important to be aware of these signs so you can catch them early and prevent further damage.
Watch out for the following signs you may have wood destroying pests:
- Unexplained holes in walls or wood structures
- Damaged or discolored wood flooring
- Strange smells coming from inside wall cavities
- Piles of sawdust near baseboards
- Droppings around windowsills and doorways
- Swarms of flying insects around lights
