The most prominent termite in New Jersey is the eastern subterranean termite. These termites will damage structural timbers in buildings – whether it’s a home or business. When this damage becomes evident, it’s usually the result of years of infestation. Thus, damage by termites is not a sudden onslaught that will cause a building to collapse in a few days. Generally, termite problems in New Jersey only occur some years after construction. The risk of infestations can be reduced by avoiding certain faults or errors in construction, site grading and maintenance, or proactive baits that catch termites early – before they can do the damage.

Termites feed upon old roots, tree stumps, fallen tree limbs and branches on the ground, and similar materials. They are beneficial when they aid in reduction of wood and similar cellulose products into compounds that can be used again by other living organisms. Occasionally termites attack living plants, including the roots of shrubs and trees. In buildings, they feed on cellulose materials, such as structural wood, wood fixtures, paper, books, cotton, and related products.

what Problems do termites cause in new jersey

The extent of damage to structural timbers and woodwork can be determined by a careful inspection of the building. Property damage from termites exceeds $5 billion per year in just the U.S. alone – and New Jersey is certainly not immune. In addition, because there are preventative termite treatments out there, most homeowner’s insurance policies don’t cover the damage caused. If left unchecked, the damage to your wallet is more extensive than the damage to your property. Although if the termite damage has been done to your New Jersey home, the sentimental and practical value is immeasurable. Subterranean termites dwell underground in loose, damp soil. Although subterranean termite species in Africa are famously aggressive and known for the obvious mounds above their colonies, signs of subterranean termite damage within the United States are much less obvious.

Interior damage may not become apparent until infestations are full-blown. Termite damage sometimes appears similar to water damage. Outward signs of termite damage include buckling wood, swollen floors and ceilings, areas that appear to be suffering from slight water damage, and visible mazes within walls or furniture. Termite infestations also can exude a scent similar to mildew or mold. Learn more about termites here. Your best bet for termite control in New Jersey is to contact Western.
