Real Estate Tips

Dealing with Termites in the South

Part of being a homeowner is dealing with pest control. Even in sunny Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, you will encounter pests. The warm humid climate in South Carolina creates the perfect environment for pests to thrive. They can be a problem year-round but especially during the spring or summer. Termites are among the common pests you may encounter if you live in or are moving to Myrtle Beach. Fortunately, if you happen to find termites in your home, there are resources available for you in the Myrtle Beach area.

It is best to catch termites before they become a huge problem. Early warning signs of an infestation are active colonies in the dirt before they reach your home or tunnels found in the concrete foundation leading up to the wood. Finding termites early will help you to avoid major damage. If you don’t catch termites early, they can cause thousands of dollars in damage. Not only can termites hurt your wallet but can also cut into your time. It can take weeks to repair the damage done by termites. Wood has to be removed and replaced. Sometimes complete walls including the drywall need to be replaced.

If termites are caught early enough, it should only take a simple treatment of your home’s foundation to get rid of the pests. This will kill any termites nearby and certainly prevent damage to your home.  

Check out one of the places below and keep them in mind! You never know when you will need assistance in getting rid of termites. Many pest control companies will offer a lifetime guarantee or discount for future treatment if you complete annual inspections. A yearly inspection guarantees that termites are not infesting your home.
