We all know that wood is an excellent building material, but, unfortunately, insects also know it as a food source. The two uses are mutually exclusive; you can’t have the wood in your home acting as a meal for bugs, after all. So, let’s take a closer look at what we should expect to see as wood-destroying bugs in Albany, OR.
Of course, the first one that springs to mind when you think of destructive bugs attacking posts, beams, and pillars is the termite. There are two main types of termites in the Oregon area that homeowners should be on the lookout for — damp wood termites and subterranean termites. They both leave clues to their presence, which you should be aware of, including hollow-sounding wood, groups of winged insects, wood floor damage, and sagging wood sections.
In addition to these main culprits, ants and beetles are also wood-destructive bugs you should be on the lookout for.
If you find that you have termites, ants, or any other pest in your home that’s the time to contact an experienced pest control firm. At AAA Pest Exterminators, Inc., we will get to the source of the problem and eliminate it promptly.
