Lancaster PA hosts over 8 million visitors each year and these guests love the state-of-the-art entertainment, variety of family activities, wonderful dining experiences and the peaceful countryside. While living in or visiting Lancaster, you are almost certain to see one or more horse drawn buggies traveling down the road (1).
Lancaster has most of the commonly encountered pests that other small Pennsylvania town property owners deal with. However, one of the more important and widespread insect problems arises when subterranean termites find their way into homes and businesses in Lancaster.
The first appearance of termite activity in a home often is when the homeowner notices wooden members of the structure that show signs of damage. The damaged wood is not longer sound, but appears to be honeycombed and packed with moist soil. The culprits causing this damage are the termite workers, the stage that consumes the wood and is highly destructive.
Another common sign of termites is the appearance of termite swarmers that usually show up during the spring months following a rain shower. Termite experts generally agree that when swarmers first appear, that can mean a nearby termite colony has been around for about three to five years.
When the signs and evidence of termites appear, the best course of action is to call the termite specialists at Western Pest Services and request a comprehensive termite inspection. Based upon the inspection results, your Western specialist will develop a plan that may involve the application of a liquid termiticide around the home’s foundation or a termite bait product that will also attack the colony members at their underground source.
