If you live in Louisiana and you have not had a termite treatment recently, you have good reason to be concerned! According to the LSU Ag Center, more than $1 billion worth of termite damage is inflicted annually in Louisiana. That means that many years termites are among the most destructive forces for Louisianans, above tornadoes, floods, and fires in many instances, and sometimes more than all three combined. Now, those other threats are very visible and you’ll see them all over the news when they happen.
What Do You See When Termites Are Present?
Honestly, most people do not notice termites. They notice the damage after it’s far too late. However, we encourage people to look at their homes closely for the tell-tale signs of termites. This includes the following:
- Termite damage in sheetrock or trim boards
- Presence of Wings
- Sagging Floors or Wood Pieces
You can search for any of these signs or ask an expert what they look like in order to determine whether you should be concerned. But, truthfully, they are pretty hard to spot. Our experts are trained how to do so–but they receive training from our founder, Certified Entomologist, Joe Arceneaux.
