A massive undetected termite infestation was found today in a home located in Orange County, CA. It appears that multiple colonies of termites had infested the home’s attic space and wood balconies. The property owner had no idea how much damage was being done until a termite inspection for the sale of the property was requested. Thousands of dollars in wood damage needed to be repaired as well as fully tenting the property to eradicate the infestations.
The lesson here is to have your home checked annually for termite infestations. Getting to the new infestations before they get out of control will allow you to treat your home with localized termite treatment methods and keep termites from causing expensive structural wood damage. Orange oil termite treatments will kill new termite infestations on contact and keep them from spreading throughout the structure.
