How much damage can Termites do to your Home?
January 10, 2024
Termites can cause significant damage to a house. They can eat away at the wood in the foundation, walls, and roof, which can weaken the structure of the house and make it unsafe to live in. Termites can also damage furniture, flooring, and other belongings.
The amount of damage that termites can do to a house depends on a number of factors, including the size of the infestation, the type of termites, and the length of time that the infestation has been present. In some cases, termites can completely destroy a house in just a few years.
If you see any signs of termites, contact Hitman Pest Control straight away.
