Are termites dangerous?

Termites are widely regarded as a damaging pest to have in your home or business. Termites (sometimes known as ‘white ants’) can cause extensive damage to the structure of a building if they are not inspected, managed or treated by qualified termite control professionals.

Termites will feed on wood 24 hours-a-day. That means a termite infestation can quickly turn into a major problem. As their presence dates back 120 million years, termites are survivors and extremely difficult to exterminate without professional expertise.

Whether it’s your home or business premises, it’s likely to be your biggest investment in terms of money, sweat and tears, so naturally you want only the best provider for all your termite control needs.

How do termites get into your house?

  • Subterranean and Formosan termites come from below

DO I HAVE TERMITES?

Termite activity often goes undetected. If termites find a crack as thin as a credit card in your home’s structure, they can get in and eat away without any visible signs. That’s why effective termite control is vital.

Termite types

These are the three main termite types to worry about in Kenya.

5 signs of termite activity:

Dark areas or blisters in wood flooring can indicate termites feeding within or below.

Hollowed wood usually has a honeycomb interior and an empty sound.

After swarming, termites usually leave discarded wings. There may also be several black or brown dead termites found.

Mud tubes the width of a drinking straw connect termites to their food source.

Mounds of pellets, resembling sawdust or coffee grounds, can indicate the presence of termite waste.

What to do if you’re infested

Termites never stop eating. And while homeowners insurance covers threats like burglary and lightning strikes, most policies don’t cover termite treatment or damage repairs.

That’s where Imagine Care comes in. We have the most advanced and effective termite control products and technologies available. We also offer the strongest guarantee in the business.

Relentless protection — it’s what separates Imagine Care from other companies. And it’s what protects your home from the threat of termites.

Pre Construction Termite Control

If you are planning to build a house or develop your property for building your office, termite control is the first thing you should think of. We use highly professional and advanced techniques for treating the termite infestation problem. Direct liquid treatments are applied to the outside, inside and also in the foundation to eliminate the termites completely. Direct injection of liquid pesticide (termiticide) in areas like the foundation, within the foundation walls and also areas under the concrete slabs is part of our specialized termite control treatment plan.

Termite Prevention Tips

  • Eliminate or reduce moisture in and around the home, which termites need to thrive.
  • Repair leaking faucets, water pipes and exterior AC units.
  • Repair rotted roof shingles.
  • Replace weather stripping and loose mortar around basement foundation and windows.
  • Divert water away from the house through properly functioning downspouts, gutters and splash blocks.
  • Routinely inspect the foundation of a home for signs of mud tubes (used by termites to reach a food source), uneven or bubbling paint and wood that sounds hollow when tapped.
  • Monitor all exterior areas of wood, including windows, door frames and skirting boards for any noticeable changes.
  • Maintain an 18-inch gap between soil and any wood portions of your home.
  • Consider scheduling a professional inspection annually. Wood-boring insect damage is not covered by homeowners’ insurance policies.
  • Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house
