FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Port St. Lucie, FL)–Studies released recently indicate termites are no small matter. In fact, termite damage affects approximately 600,000 homes in the US every year, causing over $5 billion dollars in damage. Furthermore, research from the University of Florida shows by the year 2040, half the homes in Florida will be infested with termites. To counter this infestation, Reynolds Pest Management ( a local pest management company, has launched a campaign to educate homeowners on the damage these wood pests can cause.
Says Brian Reynolds, spokesman for Reynolds Pest Management, “While most people have their home checked out when they move in, they rarely give termites another thought unless they see signs of a problem. That’s why we want to get the word out that only calling for pest control when you see outwardly signs could be too late. The Drywood Termites live inside the wood of a home, but it’s the Subterranean Termites that live in the ground. When left unchecked, the colonies can quickly grow to multi-millions of pests.” Experts state these “super termites” can actually consume a 3′ 2×4 in a single day. For this reason, preventative maintenance is recommend for all Florida homes.
Termites typically show very little sign of activity, therefore, if homeowners experience hollow sounding wood, see pin holes in the wood or sawdust droppings, it’s a good sign termites have already infested the home and professional help is needed immediately. Reynolds agrees, saying, “Homeowners should call an inspector as soon as they suspect anything. Termites outweigh humans by almost ten to one. Nationwide, control and prevention of subterranean termite infestations costs approximately $2 billion per year. Getting help as soon as possible can lower your damage bill and prevent it from occurring in the future. We urge consumers to Learn More about how termites can be stopped ahead of time by talking with one of our knowledgeable representatives.”
