Some Facts About Termites & Their Damage

Repairing termite damage may be challenging and time-consuming, depending on the extent of the damage. You may only realize you’ve bitten on more than you can chew when dealing with termite damage once your deck starts to droop, your fence posts tilt, or your flooring begins to crumble.

Did you know that termites aren’t the only creatures that consume wood? Along with termites, dry-rot fungus, wood-boring beetles, and other species may wreak havoc on your home’s structural integrity, generating more than $5 billion in damage in the United States each year. Carlsbad, your friendly pest, mosquito, and termite control – and grounds care – professional, wants you to know that you are not alone if you have termite damage that has to be fixed in your home. Carlsbad Pest Control offers complete home repair services performed by on-staff trained professionals, returning your property to its pre-termite condition.


According to Nathan Pops, Service Manager (WDO) of Clark’s Auburn office, subterranean termites, which swarm in the spring, can brutally attack a home’s underbelly – rim joists, floor joists, and subflooring – as well as wood siding.

“Termite colonies do not stop growing or eating wood,” Pops continues, “and depending on the colony’s size, can cause significant damage in a short period,” which is why an annual termite inspection is vital to protecting your home.

Pops recalls visiting a residence where Clark had just taken over service to inspect for termites. When he arrived, he discovered an active termite infestation that had caused severe damage to the home.

“A good portion of the back of the house, including two sliding glass doors and an entry door, had to be replaced due to the damage,” he says. “The final bill was in the tens of thousands.”

Working with Carlsbad Pest Control to repair termite damage ensures that the repairs are done correctly and to the standards the homeowner demand.

What should you know about the expense of repairing termite damage in your home? Here are some simple metrics to think about:

Replacement of wood: If any of the wood in your home is beyond repair, it must be removed and replaced. This might involve replacing structural elements such as beams or columns and non-structural elements such as baseboards or trim.

Repair and restoration: After the damaged wood has been replaced, your home must be repaired and returned to its original condition. Patching and repainting walls, repairing or rebuilding flooring, and fixing any other termite-related damage may be required.

Prevention: Following the restoration of the damage, it is essential to take preventive steps to avoid future termite infestations. This includes conducting regular inspections, having a licensed pest management professional treat for termites as soon as they are discovered, and eliminating termite-friendly conditions like reducing excess moisture, maintaining proper ventilation, eliminating wood-to-soil contact, avoiding over-mulching, and removing old tree stumps and wood from yards.
